Total Sales: 1,710 (GLOBAL)
Vs. 2020: +24.1 %
Best-Selling Model: Elise
During a year when Lotus ended production of the Elise, Exige and Evora, it’s notable that the brand experienced its best sales in more than 10 years. North America — the top market worldwide for Lotus — had impressive results with sales more than doubling since the previous year. Much of this success can be attributed to Lotus fans wanting one of the final copies of the Elise — the Sport 240 and Cup 250 Final Editions. Geoff Dowding, executive director of sales and aftersales at Lotus, said that “Our global retailers have risen to the challenge of giving the Elise, Exige and Evora the send-off they deserved. It means we’re in great shape for 2022 to focus on the all-new Lotus Emira, our last petrol-powered sports car and the best of breed.”
