Lotus taking front-engine hybrids to Paris Motor Show

Lotus is certainly working hard leading up to this year’s Paris Motor Show. The iconic marque will be releasing a new pair of Evoras and it will also be officially unveiling two front-engine hybrid vehicles. The new hybrids are in keeping with the automaker’s promise to offer more gasoline/electric sports cars. Apparently, one of these hybrid cars will be a four-door hatchback and the other will be a two-door coupe.

Lotus first debuted a hybrid concept earlier this year in the form of the Evora 414E Hybrid (pictured). However, unlike most of Lotus’ mid-engine vehicles the two new concepts will be front-engine models utilising a 47-horsepower 1.2-litre three-cylinder engine specifically designed to provide power to electric-drive hybrids.

More details will be revealed nearer to the Paris show later this month, so stay tuned.
