Lotus at Goodwood Festival of Speed 2023: Eletre, Emira and Evija on Show and in Action

  • Biggest-ever stand hosts full Lotus road car range – Eletre, Emira and Evija
  • Debut of the Emira with new 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine
  • A hub of activity on all four days, including live Q&A with Jenson Button, The Smoking Tire podcast recording and expert presentations of the Lotus Eletre’s driver-focused tech
  • Daily ‘Lotus Moment’ – unique parade of Lotus cars past and present is fitting tribute to brand’s 75th anniversary


Hethel, UK – 7 July 2023  Lotus lands at next week’s Goodwood Festival of Speed with its biggest-ever stand at the event, and a huge range of activities that will appeal to the tens of thousands of performance car fans attending. Alternatively follow the action on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, TikTok, Twitter, Pinterest and LinkedIn.

For 2023 the Lotus stand is in a new position, closer to the start of the iconic Hill Climb. It’s the perfect spot to witness the ‘Lotus Moment’, a unique parade of Lotus cars past and present, taking place every day and a fitting tribute to celebrate the brand’s 75th anniversary year. Check daily schedules for exact timings.

Taking centre stage for Lotus is the Eletre, making its dynamic debut at the Festival. With customer deliveries starting soon in the UK and across Europe, Goodwood is the perfect time to discover its unique design, advanced all-electric powertrain and intuitive driver-focused technology.

The Eletre is aimed at a new generation of Lotus customers. A true Lotus, it blends the core DNA of the Emira and Evija, reinterpreting them as a practical, versatile and spacious family-oriented hyper-SUV. Twice a day members of the Lotus Customer Experience team will be demonstrating its capabilities on the Lotus stand, including the active aerodynamics and immersive 23-speaker audio system created in partnership with British brand KEF and sound processing pioneer Dolby.

Goodwood Festival of Speed also marks the eagerly anticipated expansion of the Emira range, with the public debut of the 2.0-litre four-cylinder version. Customer deliveries of the Emira four-cylinder will start later this year

For Lotus fans who love the live action thrills of Goodwood, all four current cars – Eletre, Emira, Emira V6 (Thursday only) and the pure electric hypercar, the Evija – will be taking part in Hill Climb activity throughout the Festival. Examples will also be on the Lotus stand, and an Eletre and Emira 2.0-litre will be in the First Glance Paddock.

Mike Johnstone, Group Vice-President and Chief Commercial Officer, Lotus, commented: “In our 75th year we’ve got an amazing Goodwood Festival of Speed line-up. The current range is a fitting tribute to everything that’s come before, and this is such a great venue for enthusiasts to see our cars and learn about the transformation of Lotus from our knowledgeable product experts.”

The Lotus stand will be a hub of activity all weekend. Plans include a live Q&A with F1 World Champion Jenson Button (Saturday), who will also be driving a Lotus Evija in the Hill Climb on Saturday, two live recordings of the hugely popular US-based motoring podcast The Smoking Tire (Friday and Saturday), and daily presentations of the Eletre’s audio system by experts from KEF.

  • S1 Elise Refresh

    And so the winter refresh of my S1 Elise started today. Hoping to take front clam of tomorrow. However of the 4 lower bolts that hold the lower rear to the chassis, 2 are spinning and 2 won't budge despite copious amounts of penetrative oil over the last few months. The Eagle eyed will spot my Dremel tool which I'm not looking forward to using to remove 4 bolt heads that have limited access. Currently on my list are replacing the driving lights brackets, shot blast and paint the tow post, n

    I've previously had my 2002 S2 (K-Series) serviced by Steve Guglielmi in Daventry - but believe he's now moved to Lotus dealership at Silverstone.  Does anyone know a good reliable independent Lotus specialist in the Daventry / Northampton region???  Many thanks!!!

    LED bulb kit upgrade Elise S2

    I have bought LED bulb kits to replace the existing poor halogen H1 and H7 bulbs. These are somewhat bigger beyond the lens due to inbuilt cooling fans. The H1’s dipped headlight have gone in nice and easy, but the main beam H7’s will not go in with the light fitting in situ. Has anyone had to remove the fitting and how easy is it to do? I think that the bulb kit will fit by removing the fitting, it just will not go in due to the angle needed to locate through back of the lens. Due to the bulkin

    MOT Garage recommendations (Shropshire)

    Afternoon all, Newbie to the forum but not to Lotus ownership and soon to join MLOC. I've invested heavily over the last 12 months in having work done to bring my 23-year old Elise up to scratch with the excellent PJS Sportscars. My MOT is due in November and I cannot really afford to annually service my car this year (especially as my mileage is only around 1,000 miles per year. I'll probably service it with PJS when I've done 2-3,000 miles. In the meantime I cannot avoid an MOT

    November Challenge!!!

    I’m so close to upgrading my Elise S2 to an Exige Sport 350. I’ve been offered £15k p/ex against a £43k Exige!!  This is a cash deal so I guess the dealership isn’t interested as there is no finance commission etc….. to be earned. Apparently, £15k is the going price!!!  I fully appreciate and understand how p/ex works but this is a bloody insult.    So come on, show me an Elise S2 (08MY) with 43,000 miles on the clock for £15k. I can’t find one.  Packet of Hobnobs for the winner
