Lotus Exige 270E TriFuel Will Try AnythingMatt Hardigree3/03/08 4:45pmFiled to: geneva motor show2008 geneva motor showLotus EngineeringLotus ExigeLotus Exige 270ELotus Exige 270E TriFuelTriFuel13EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkLotus is one of those companies that, in addition to making world class sports cars, also spends a significant amount of time in developing technological solutions for other manufacturers. In this case, Lotus Engineering has taken on the task of designing an environmentally friendly vehicle that can run on three different fuels (gas, bioethanol and methanol). And because they're Lotus, said car isn't a boring sedan but rather the wicked Lotus Exige. While the gas and bioethanol Exige aren't news, this methanol thing is interesting. The fuel purports to take the CO2 out of the atmosphere and combine it with hydrogen to create a carbon-neutral fuel, in theory. The concept application sports a 270 horsepower 1.8-Liter engine good for a 0-62 mph run in just 3.88 seconds. If methanol performance cars are the future, just consider us meth addicts.
