Lotus has recorded a 55% increase in car sales compared to the last financial year, with sales of 2015 cars since March 2014.
Releasing its financial results for the year to the end of March 2015, Lotus announced that it has recorded its best sales result since the financial crisis in 2008/2009 and seen a marked increase from the 1296 units sold from March 2013 to March 2014.
UK sales more than doubled to 346 units in the last financial year, representing an increase of 102%, while key markets in China, France and Germany recorded impressive sales increases of 186%, 177% and 130% respectively.
Globally, the number of Lotus dealers increased by 36 to 174, while the Elise was Lotus's best seller in the year with an 80% boost in sales to 729 units. All cars in the range saw improved sales figures, with the Exige S selling 724 units - an increase of 53% on last year - and the Evora selling 562 models, up 35%.
This substantial sales and product push has been orchestrated by new boss Jean-Marc Gales, who is hoping to boost sales volumes to 3500 in the next three years.
