This is what Lotus installs in your car when you order an extinguisher option.

They install 4 nozzles. One for each occupant/seat in the cabin. They are mounted under the dash and pointing about at your crotch. The other 2 nozzles are in the engine compartment. One is forward, up high and on the left side of the car. This one is pointed at the fuel rail/fuel line. The other one is down low, aft of the axle and on the right side of the car. This one is pointed at the catalytic converter and muffler.

Lotus mounts the bottle right in front of the passenger seat. The passenger needs to put is legs over it. I like mounting is on the passenger side, all the way forward in the foot well.

Direct from their brochure;

Smaller and lighter than their Zero 2000 counterparts the Zero 360 stored pressure systems benefit from advanced nozzle design that delivers a significantly more efficient
distribution of 3M™ Novec™ 1230 suppressant producing a faster and increased levels of concentration, ensuring extremely fast fire knock-down.
