Lotus to hire 200 engineers as part of expansion

With the backing of Chinese automaker Geely, Lotus is no longer happy to tread water. Instead, it has aggressive expansion plans. Phil Popham, CEO of Lotus Cars, has confirmed details about the company's ambitious plan with The Telegraph. The automaker will hire around 200 engineers to help it triple sales to 5000 vehicles per year. In addition to this, the company will also open a new engineering centre in the UK Midlands, the company's first facility outside its Norfolk headquarters.
