Lotus has created brilliant cars over its 72 years. That is the case not only due to engineering prowess but also to following something Colin Chapman became famous for saying: "Simplify, then add lightness." AutoExpress said the company would give up on combustion-engined cars after a new vehicle to be presented in 2021. How will it add lightness to vehicles with massive battery packs? That is probably the bull Phil Popham will have to grab by the horns. As Lotus' CEO, he is the man in charge of "not just crafting a car and sticking a badge on it to make money." Especially because Lotus is now part of Geely, which gives it access to a lot of resources it did not previously have. Architectures, battery packs, money: you name it.
