Shakespeare gave Juliet the famous question: What’s in a name? That which we call a rose, by any other name would smell as sweet.
So, what is in the name Lotus? Arguably Lotus is a brand – but any marketing guru worth their salt will tell you that a brand is only in part about a name or a logo, equally important (if not more so) is the experience that becomes synonymous with the name.
And that’s what the Lotus magazine is all about – it’s not a car magazine (even if Esprit, Elite, Elan, Elise and Eterne feature prominently in issue 1), it’s the translation of the new Lotus experience onto paper. It isn’t a glorified sales pitch, it’s the gateway to the new Lotus world, it’s an insight into our game plan.
We’ve brought together some exceptional people from the magazine industry to bring you a work of reading glory spanning 160 gorgeous pages. Lotus is a lifestyle choice and in our magazine you’ll find a collection of intriguing articles highlighting the very best of British culture accompanied by fashion and sublime photography.
Lotus CEO Dany Bahar said: “The concept behind the magazine is to showcase the world of Lotus in a smart, stylish and tongue-in-cheek format. The magazine provides the perfect platform to communicate our new DNA – sexy, upbeat, unique, energetic and bursting at the seams with creativity and joie de vivre. I’m confident that, as with our new cars, the magazine can compete with the world’s best and do our special brand justice.”
Published three times a year, with a cover price of £20 (€25/$30), issue one of the magazine was launched at the Paris Motor Show and is available now via online subscription (http://www.lotuscars.com/en/lotus-magazine).
