Lotus

Lotus-auto-sales-statistics-EuropeLotus sales in Europe have been going up and down, from almost 2.500 units in the year 2000 to just over 400 units in 2012 before rebounding to 800 sales in 2015 thanks to the new Exige Roadster.

Currently, the brand has 3 models on offer:

  • the base model Elise roadster, which has been updated in 2010, traditionally the brand’s best selling model.
  • the Exige, which was remodeled in 2012 and was the brand’s best selling model in 2013.
  • the Evora, introduced in 2009, which was the brand’s best selling model in 2011.

Lotus, which has been owned for almost 20 years already by the Malaysian conglomerate that also owns Proton, has been struggling against bankruptcy for close to five years, with rumors of an imminent failure surfacing every couple of months. Under management of the megalomaniac CEO Dany Bahar, the company showed grand plans for reviving its British sports car heritage at the Paris auto show in 2010, showcasing no less than six sportscars to be introduced within the next five years. Among them, a new Esprit with an in-house-designed V8 engine.

Two years later, Bahar was sacked and the product plans were scrapped, as the owners of the company realized they were overly ambitious. A new product plan has been announced in 2013. Instead of six all-new cars, the company will in the short term work on variants of its existing line-up. The first was the Exige S Roadster, an open-top variant of the Exige, which itself used to be the closed-top variant of the Elise. Lotus also plans to launch new variants of both the Elise and the Evora.
