Lotus has now ended production of its iconic trio of models, the Elise, Exige and Evora, The first two have been around the longest, entering production around 20+ years ago and the final version of each model is to be kept in the Lotus heritage collection.
“I would also like to convey enormous gratitude to all the customers of the Elise, Exige and Evora over the last 26 years for their passion, enthusiasm and support”
Matt Windle – Lotus boss
The Elise was announced back in 1996 and so far, 35,124 examples have been made. The Elise helped form the base for the iconic Tesla Roadster and the Vauxhall VX220.
