We’ve been given a glimpse of the upcoming Lotus Emira sports car ahead of its full reveal on the 6 July.

Set to replace the Elise, it’s a significant car because Lotus says it will be its final combustion-powered car before going electric. Here’s what you need to know.

Lotus Emira: What we know so far

The pictures don’t give much away, but it’s clear that it follows Lotus’ traditional formula; small, nimble and beautiful.

It was originally thought the Emira might be an EV or hybrid, but it’s now been confirmed it’ll use either a 2.0-litre four cylinder or 3.5-litre six-cylinder.

This makes it a very important car, because the following models are going to use electric architecture instead – with an SUV touted as a potential new model.

Conversely, under the skin the Emira is essentially a modified Evora, so if you’re wondering what it’ll be like to drive, that should give you a decent enough idea.

Aside from the teaser pics and the fact it’s Lotus’ final petrol-powered machine, we don’t know much else yet. But we’ll bring you more details as soon as we get them.
