Lotus reveals vision for mass-market SUV


Lotus of Orange County is excited to confirm, Designed at Lotus’ headquarters in Hethel, the new model will begin production in China at the end of 2019, if the company’s manufacturing license is approved. It comes as the firm reinforced its commitment to the county by stating that it would create 200 new jobs within the next two months as it begins producing the new Evora 400 and increases production of the Elise and the Exige.
Chief executive Jean-Marc Gales said producing a lightweight SUV would bring new customers to the Lotus brand and provide more income to invest back into the sports-car business.
“The idea behind SUV was born because there is no lightweight SUV right now,” he said. “All the SUVs are big boxes, heavy cars. As a manufacturer you cannot ignore the trend towards SUVs; about 20pc of the world market is an SUV market.
Lotus of Orange County is the premier Lotus dealership of Southern California and their helpful and knowledgeable staff along with expert factory-trained technicians can help you with any of your Lotus needs.  For more information about Lotus of Orange County, visit the dealership at 4040 Campus Drive in Newport Beach, Calif., or online at
