Lotus Engineering: advanced consultancy services for OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers

Lotus Engineering is an internationally recognised consultancy, providing a comprehensive range of technical services to many of the world’s automotive manufacturers and suppliers.

Committed to driving forward technology with precision and passion, Lotus Engineering is a global high-tech business which continues to spearhead research into areas such as advanced powertrain design and validation, lightweight advanced materials, and ride and handling optimisation.

The DNA of any Lotus car has always been expressed through three core competencies – exceptional chassis and vehicle dynamics, a lightweight design and overall aerodynamic efficiency. Every Lotus must have these. The experience and expertise of Lotus Engineering’s service has always echoed these core competencies, and today its technology portfolio is based around five core engineering services which are on offer to its clients. These fall under five headings – Propulsion, Structures, Dynamics, Design and Controls.

While the automotive industry is the heartland of Lotus Engineering, as a consultancy its innovative approach and problem-solving expertise has been used by clients from many other industries. These have included elite sporting performance, aerospace, boat-building, medical research, furniture, a watch and even a shopping trolley!

“As an engineering consultancy and manufacturer of performance cars designed to excite and perform, our breadth of technical knowledge and understanding is unrivalled,” commented Matt Windle, Executive Director, Engineering.

“Although Lotus cars are created for pure-bred performance, our clients often want our expertise in other areas where our services and technologies are world-leading. We can tackle projects within each individual area or combine them to give us an unmatched ability to deliver anything, from a component or system to a complete powertrain solution or whole vehicle programme.”
