Award given to Lotus for having “revolutionised and disrupted its sector” during the last year

Ongoing enhancements to the brand, including new corporate identity and ‘For the Drivers’ tagline, singled out for praise

Lotus CEO Phil Popham paid tribute to employees working tirelessly to take the brand to new levels of success

(Hethel, UK – 29 October 2019) – Lotus has won the prestigious ‘Luxury Brand of the Year’ award at the annual Luxury Briefing Awards 2019. The car maker was honoured at a gala ceremony staged at The Savoy, London in front of more than 350 VIP guests.

 

Founded in 1996, Luxury Briefing provides industry reports, analysis and expert opinion across all sectors of the luxury industry. ‘Luxury Brand of the Year’ is one of the top awards and chosen by the organisation’s board of directors. In selecting Lotus, Sir Eric Peacock, Chairman of Luxury Briefing, said Lotus has “revolutionised and disrupted its sector by blowing away all boundaries and limitations with an energetic burst of innovation and repositioning”.

 

Praise was given for ongoing enhancements to the Lotus brand, which to date have included a new corporate identity, new ‘For the Drivers’ brand tag line, and a complete overhaul of its digital presence. Sir Eric acknowledged Lotus’ commitment to top-level motorsport through the Evora GT4 Concept, the Premier League football partnership with Norwich City, and a collaboration on elite cycling performance through the expanding Lotus Engineering consultancy.

 

However, what excited the Luxury Briefing team most was the launch of the all-electric Lotus Evija hypercar. Sir Eric called it “a game-changer of a new car” which had raised the brand’s global profile massively. It marks the start of an ambitious and exciting new product plan that will grow the brand over the next decade.

 

Phil Popham, CEO, Lotus cars, collected the award and commented: “We are a performance car company with bold ambitions for the future, so to be recognised and honoured as a luxury brand at this stage of our journey is a fantastic achievement. This award is for everyone in the Lotus family around the world who is working tirelessly to grow our brand and achieve new levels of success. I’m confident it will the first of many from outside the automotive sector.”

 

Other brands recognised at the awards include Princess Yachts, Hennessey XO, Selfridges, Fortnum & Mason, Timothy Oulton, Creed Boutique, Aston Martin and Bentley.

  • Sticking Accelerator on K Series Elise

    Having a free evening and looking through my Elise paperwork I found my notes on sorting out a sticky accelerator for my K series Elise.   So thought I’d post this after spending the better part of a year trying to resolve it, and boy it was horrendous.  I’d gently press the accelerator and… nothing.  A little more pressure and still nothing.  A little bit…OMG the accelerator would drop 10-15mm and I’d be 10meters down the road or stalled.  This would happen all the way through the travel but wa

    Thanks to PJS

    People are very quick nowadays to take to social media when they have some sort of gripe, but people often forget to report good service, so I would just like to to say thank you very much to PJS for being very helpful today when I needed a couple of items urgently. I have not been there before but I found Paul to be extremely helpful and a pleasure to deal with. Thank you. Graham

    The Mustard Yellow Elise S1 Refresh Thread

    So last September I purchased my 5th Elise S1, almost 20 years since I bought my first one back in the day.   It's a high mileage example, but had recently had a part restoration done by the previous owner, including a full suspension refurb with new Nitrons, Ally Radiator and all new brakes with Ultimax Turbo discs, amongst several other things.  However I knew when I bought it that I’d need to spend some time (and money) getting it right, but the “no brainer” price I paid and taking into accou

    Lotus Dealerships

    Hey all. I've recently decided to look into fulfiling my childhood dream of owning a Lotus Elise. I'm based in Shropshire and will be going up to Oakmere for a test drive - are they the best/closest choice?
