The Lotus Evija (pronounced Ev-eye-a) is an electric supercar manufactured by British automobile manufacturer Lotus.
Introduced in July 2019, it is the first electric vehicle to be introduced and manufactured by the company. Codenamed "Type 130", production of the Evija will be limited to 130 units. The name 'Evija' is derived from Eve of the Abrahamic religions, a name whose etymology can be traced back to the Biblical Hebrew חי, meaning 'alive', or 'living'.
The Evija is powered by a 70 kWh battery pack developed in conjunction with Williams Advanced Engineering, with electric motors supplied by Integral Powertrain. Each of the four individual motors are placed at the wheels and are rated at 368 kW (500 PS; 493 hp), for a combined total output of 1,470 kW (2,000 PS; 1,970 hp) and 1,700 N⋅m (1,254 lb⋅ft) of torque. The Evija is equipped with magnesium wheels with diameters of 20 inches at the front and 21 inches at the rear. The car uses Pirelli Trofeo R tyres and AP Racing carbon ceramic disc brakes.
The Evija prototype underwent high-speed testing in November 2019, with a video released on November 21, 2019 ahead of its debut later that day at the Guangzhou Auto Show. Lotus said it was still planning thousands of miles of road testing for the car, with it to be brought to circuits in Europe as well as tested on Lotus' own Hethel, England-based test track. Production is set to begin in 2021.
Lotus claims that the Evija will be able to accelerate from 0– 100 km/h (62 mph) in under 3 seconds, from 0–299 km/h (186 mph) in under 9 seconds, and on to a top speed of over 320 km/h (200 mph).

The Lotus Evija was added in the 2020 Lunar New Year Update as a high-end Class A car with the following statistics:

- Hidden MAX rank: ? (+?)
- PRO rank: 1772 (+?)

At stock, the Evija has average acceleration, average handling, and decent drift radius. At PRO, the Evija has a total top speed of 483.8 km/h / 300.4 mph with a Tuning Kit.
The Evija is excellent for Lotus-only TLEs as it is the fastest Lotus in the game.
The Lotus Evija is obtained by reaching Tier 8 of its Festival. If viewed in the Tag Racing car selection menu, it will show a price of 10,000, however, the option to buy the car is unavailable.
The Evija could be obtained during its Festival Special between March 5-11, 2020 as a reward for claiming 10 spins. Players who already own the car would receive 3 Kit cards instead.
