Lotus bought by Geely

Chinese vehicle maker Geely has announced its purchase of Proton Cars - including a 51% stake in Lotus Cars.

This underpins the development of future Lotus models - including the planned 'new Elise' (concept impression below), due in 2010.

All current Lotus models use a varient of Lotus' aluminium 'tub' chassis, made mainly from extrusions. The new 2020 model is believed  to use similar construction.
