Lotus Cars builds world class, high performance and lightweight sports cars that are sold all around the world. The current range – which is 100% ‘For The Drivers’ – includes the Evora coupe, the critically acclaimed Exige and the iconic Elise.

Over the last seven decades, Lotus has remained true to this ethos. Our core values, our pioneering approach to automotive engineering and our rich heritage – both in road and race cars – are guiding our future.

The ongoing transformation of Lotus is laid out in the company’s Vision80 strategy, which states what Lotus will be in 2028 when we celebrate our 80th anniversary. We welcome talented, creative and motivated people to join us on our journey.
