Lotus upgrades test facilities with multi-million-dollar Geely investment

Lotus is in the process of upgrading its Hethel headquarters and testing facilities, as part of a push to modernise the brand and develop its zero-emission line-up. The most prominent element of the multi-million-dollar investment is a new electric drive unit test cell. According to the Geely-owned manufacturer, this will allow engineers to test EV motors, gearboxes and supporting electronics under simulated real-world conditions.

A league of their own – the world's most powerful production cars

Although plenty of us won’t get a chance to plough down the Nürburgring or get behind the wheel of a hypercar in our lifetimes, it’s hard to deny our obsession with all things high-performance. The human race has spent decades perfecting 0-100km/h sprint times and figuring out how to generate maximum outputs with minimal weight. As we embark on a new decade of development, it’s safe to say the quest for perfection is far from over.

Lotus shows off plug-and-play digital dash

A new digital instrument display could give Lotus owners an advantage on weekend track days, or outline to drivers where they went wrong. The digital dash has been developed by Lotus as a plug-and-play system for owners of Elise and Exige V6 models built after 2008. With 4000 race tracks pre-loaded, the digital cluster uses GPS technology to record lap times, providing real-time feedback and allowing drivers to download the data to a laptop for greater scrutiny and analysis.

Is this for real? Chinese car company delivers keys to new cars by drone to combat COVID-19

Chinese car maker Geely claims to have come up with a unique way to hand over new cars while keeping a safe distance during the COVID-19 outbreak – by getting a drone to deliver the keys. While it's unclear whether this is just a PR stunt, the company claims the service will be offered in select locations, using a remotely-controlled drone to deliver keys to front doors and even to the balconies of new-car buyers.
