2010 Lotus Elise Concept

The Lotus Elise Concept was introduced at the 2010 Paris Auto Show, where it was joined by several other concepts from the Lotus marque. Powering the Elise is a 2-liter supercharged four-cylinder engine delivering 320 horsepower. It has a six-speed manual gearbox with an optional paddle-shifted automatic setup. Zero-to-sixty takes just 4.3 seconds.

Dany Bahar, Chief Executive Officer of Group Lotus, said: 'We worked very hard on getting the Elise 2015 exactly right, it's our entry level car so it needs to give a proper introduction to the Lotus driving experience.'

'The Lotus Elise you can buy now is still a fantastic car, make no mistake, Lotus remain very proud of it, but this is a natural progression for us moving forward. The Elise 2015 will also be class-leading in terms of performance and efficiency but it will do more than that it will take the Lotus Elise model to the forefront of its class across the board.'

'The design of the Lotus Elise 2015 is perfect for the target market, it's young, strong, confident, verging on ruthless, it mirrors the engineering and technology. It's the next generation Elise for a new generation of Lotus drivers.'
