Lotus City Car Concept Confirmed for Production in 2013

Lotus City Car 
Lotus has stated that its City Car Concept has been given the green lights to enter into production and will be launched in 2013. The Lotus City Car concept was unveiled at the Paris Motor Show in October.
According to Car, Lotus Chief Executive Dany Bahar said, “We are doing this together with Proton and another OEM.”
The company said that it will build three variants namely an Asia model, a Europe model and a sport version.
Nonetheless, Lotus’ Technical Director Wolf Zimmermann affirmed that work on the supermini City Car has yet to commence as they focus their engineering resources on the new sports cars, especially the new 2013 Lotus Esprit.
The Lotus City Car is a hybrid 4-seater with a rear-wheel drive. Coupled to a single-speed transmission, the engine combines a 35 kW electric motor with a range-extending 1.2 litre three-cylinder petrol engine similar to the Lotus Evora 414E Hybrid concept.
