Lotus made its presence felt at Auto Shanghai 2019 in the cheekiest of ways, revealing a teaser sketch of the Type 130, the automakers first-ever fully electric hypercar. You would have thought that Lotus would drop a bombshell in Shanghai by revealing the actual Type 130, but the British automaker is saving that for a rainy day. The actual date of the Type 130s unveiling has yet to be finalized, but Lotus has indicated that it will take place in London later this year. It seems like a waste of a good auto show reveal, but we trust that Lotus has something special planned for the dbut of its first-ever hypercar. Expect that debut to be a spectacle, not only because of the Type 130s stature as an EV hypercar but, just as important, its place as the first all-new Lotus model since 2008.
