Lotus is delighted to announce that Jean-Charles Lievens has joined

Italy, Spain and Portugal.
Jean-Charles brings with him 37 years of experience in the car industry and distribution having

With Jean-Marc announcing Lotus are growing their dealership in North America this looks like a very big step (forward) for the whole Lotus range and the Evora in particular.

I would like to think Jean Marc has kept a good relationship with Peugeot cars, and that the long awaited new Elise is able to be purchased in the States in road going trim and (posssibly) using the 1.6 engine from the RCZ R; 270bhp low CO2 and 45mpg in a car weighing 1300kgs (the RCZ).
