After its successful debut in the last months and collecting the first enthusiastic feedback from the
international press, Lotus marks the Salon Automobile de Lyon with the new and highly
anticipated Evora 400.
Supported by the Lotus dealer TLA (Technique Loisirs Automobiles), based in Saint-Étienne, the
Elise 20th Anniversary, Elise 220 Cup and Exige S, are exhibited on the Lotus stand in the
Prestige Area alongside the new Evora 400.
Jean-Marc Gales, Chief Executive Officer of Group Lotus plc, said: “France is a very important
market for Lotus and we are delighted to debut the new Evora 400 to the French public at the
Salon Automobile de Lyon. France is an important growth area for Lotus where, last financial
year, we saw a 177% increase in sales. With the launch of the new Evora 400, we expect this
increase to continue.”
The Salon Automobile de Lyon is not only a stage for those who want to view new models but
also to test-drive them. In the four testing areas outside the pavilions, fans of Lotus have the
opportunity to get behind the wheel of the iconic sports cars, the Lotus Elise 20th Anniversary and
the Lotus Exige S to experience for themselves the pure driving experience and benchmark
handling that all Lotus cars possess.
Running over five days inside the Eurexpo exhibition and convention centre and featuring 40
manufacturers with more than 90 new models on display, the Salon Automobile de Lyon provides
the perfect platform to showcase the new critically acclaimed model from Lotus.
The Salon will open every day from 10am to 7pm and until 10pm on Friday 25th of September
