Dual fuel is so old hat, but Tri-Fuel? Now that's something to get excited about. Apparently we weren't the only ones who took great interest in the Lotus Exige 270E Tri-Fuel when it was first unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show last year.

Lotus Enthusiast is reporting that strong interest from Youngman Auto (Lotus' Chinese partner) could see the Tri-Fuel Exige make production with the Chinese market likely to be amongst the first recipients.

At this stage the 270E is only a concept, but a little fine tuning here and there could see it ready for production in no time.

The Exige 270E can run on any one of three fuels, petrol, bio-ethanol or methanol, with power from the 1.8 litre supercharged engine maxing at 201kW (270hp) and 260Nm (190lb-ft).

When running on either of the alcohol based fuels, the 270E is the fastest Exige model ever, with a 0-100km/h time of just 3.8 seconds. Enough to ensure the little Lotus could play rough with some of the world's faster supercars.
