Lotus’ foray into electric vehicles, the Lotus Eletre, is an all-electric, hyper-SUV that takes inspiration from the automaker’s latest sports car, the Emira and its existing, all-electric Evija hypercar.
The Eletre is also Lotus’ first five-door production car and non-sports car. Take a look at some of its specs:
- 0-62 mph in less than three seconds
- Battery capacity of over 100kWh combined with 600 hp (20 minutes on a 350kW charger for 248 miles of driving)
- Target driving range of 373 miles
- Constructed with carbon fiber and aluminum for quicker and smoother driving experience
The Eletre is the first of three new lifestyle EVs for the company, all to be manufactured in a brand-new production facility in Wuhan, China. The vehicles will roll out throughout the next four years.
