Lotus Electric Car Review :
British automaker Lotus has unveiled their first SUV as an all-electric ‘Eletre’. Luxurious high-performance SUV, built under the codename Type 132, introduces itself to the company as an electric-only performance car brand.
The electric revolution is no longer limited to everyday drivers and eco-passengers. Luxury brands such as Audi, BMW, Mercedes and Porsche have already begun to expand their lineup with EV variants, while Hypercar makers such as Lamborghini and Ferrari expect their first electric to arrive in the next few years. On Tuesday, British automaker Lotus announced that it also has an EV, a 600HP Elater, which will begin delivery next year in China, Europe and the United Kingdom.
Like the legacy of sports cars, Lotus is emphasizing the functionality of its new electric SUV. The Eletre will be able to sprint from 0-100km / h (0-62mph) in less than three seconds, claiming a place in the Lotus “exclusive ‘to the second club'” in which the Tesla Model S Plaid (very low) specified conditions, mind Keep).

Lotus Electric Car Design :
Eletre is designed at the Lotus Technology Creative Center (LTCC) in Coventry, England – the brand’s new design office for its ‘Lifestyle Car’. Its sports cars will still be designed at Lotus headquarters in Heathrow, UK. The design is very attractive and contains elements inspired by Lotus Eviza and Emira.
It has a cab-forward stance, a long wheelbase and a very short front and rear overhang. The compact bonnet echoes styling hints from Lotus’ historic mid-engine layout.Lotus electric car
LTCC boss Ben Payne, who led the electronics design, said: “We’ve tried to push the nose forward and have very short hoods and very sharp noses, all of which help make the product look longer, lower and smoother than it really is. Is. “
Several elements have been inspired by other Lotus cars, such as the sharp edges on the front, which look a lot like the Lotus Eviza and Emera. According to Penn, the glass canopy above the body is reminiscent of Evizar.
According to the car manufacturer, an important aerodynamic feature of the design is ‘porosity’ – how air flows through the car and flows up, down and around it, allowing low resistance while aiding efficiency for range, speed and performance.
Like Emira and Evizar, the air flows down the anterior edge, coming out through the two vents of the bonnet. Other places where it can be seen are behind the front wheel arch, behind the rear wheel and above the D-pillar.
At the back, the SUV has a full-length ribbon light, which bends the wind from the wheel arches to the outlets – another similarity between the Amira and the Eviza. The lights are red when the car is running, but depending on the charge of the battery, it may look orange or green.Lotus electric car
“It’s about using technology, and asking ourselves: ‘Can we create two functions of one light?'” Payne said.
A carbon fiber, three-stage portable, split, roof-mounted spoiler is nicely assembled at the rear for the purpose of waking up race car winglets. The central part of weight loss is missing – Lotus is one of the different ways to lose weight.Lotus electric car
Examples of other weight-saving designs include placing the charging port on the front wing to ensure it is as close as possible to incoming electricity, eliminating unnecessary internal cabling and excess weight.
The only design element that can’t be reached from this near-production car to the road-going version is the door handle line. Lotus will also offer 22-inch wheels along with the 23-inch wheels seen in the picture.

Lotus Electric Car Interior :
The interior will offer a traditional two-bucket-and-one-bench layout or an optional four separate seats, front and rear, under a specific panoramic sunroof. Material choices for the cabin reflect Lotus’ net-zero goals, including “durable man-made microfiber in the initial touchpoints and an improved wool blend fabric in the seats”, while the solid parts are made from the slightest bit of carbon fiber. It is recycled from the edge of the loom instead of being specially made.
Lotus Electric Car Features :
A complete manufacture of infotainment systems. “A panel of light under the instrument panel travels across the cabin, sitting in a ribbed channel that widens at each end to create an air vent,” read Tuesday’s announcement. This light blade acts as part of the car’s HMI and changes color to alert residents to important events, such as an incoming call.
Beneath it is a 30 mm long “technology ribbon.” Next to the driver, that tape acts as a cluster of instruments, displaying vehicle and travel information, which can also be displayed through the AR system, which is standard. On the passenger side, a second tape shows relevant information such as the location of interest in the vicinity or the current music selection that is played with the Uni-QTM KEF Premium 1,380-watt 15-speaker surround sound set-up.
These two ribbons have a 15.1-inch OLED touchscreen infotainment system that folds when not in use. Although most cabin controls are digital and can be accessed through either the touchscreen or voice interface, Lotus considers some functions important enough to be mirrored to physical knobs and switches so that drivers do not have to dig submenus to turn on the windshield. wipers Even those digital controls, Lotus boasts that “users can access up to 95 percent of the car’s functionality with three touches of the main screen.”
Notable exterior design features for the Eletre include a closing grille shutter, a three-position rear spoiler and either a 22 “or 23” wheel. Also, Eletre has future external features, including a “leader sensor that rises from the body’s work and ultimately allows for high-level autonomous operation.” Also, Eletre’s liftgate has a full-width light bar with the ability to switch to green, blue, red and orange.
Advanced driver support features :
Eletre Alphabet Soup comes with advanced driver support features: Intelligent Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC); Conflict Mitigation Support Front (CMSF); Traffic Sign Information (TSI); Door Open Warning (DOW); Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA); Front Cross Traffic Alert (FCTA); Lane Change Assistance (LCA); Child Attendance Detection (CPD); Lane Departure Warning / Prevention (LKA); Parking Emergency Brake (PEB); Collision Mitigation Support Rear (CMSR); And Emergency Rescue Call (E-Call). Still, Eletre may require driver supervision at all times.
By “end-to-end autonomous driving”, Lotus is really referring to self-parking capabilities. The company says that “a customer can use their smartphone app to request their Eletre to drive to them autonomously from a nearby parking space and then autonomously re-park when the ride is over.” More advanced autonomous driving will be added later via the OTA update, the company says. The EV will also have 5G connectivity.
Lotus Electric Car Range :
Like the legacy of sports cars, Lotus is emphasizing the functionality of its new electric SUV. The Eletre will be able to sprint from 0-100km / h (0-62mph) in less than three seconds, with Lotus claiming a place in the “exclusive ‘to the second club'” in which the Tesla Model S Plaid (at the very bottom) is subject to certain conditions. Keep).
However, the fact that it can tear the track does not mean that the elevator is not built like an SUV. With all-wheel drive, the five-door EV will be fairly compact, but it will still pack a lot of power, with more than 100kWh of battery power and 600 horsepower.
But just because it can tear the track doesn’t mean that the electric isn’t built like an SUV.
Lotus says a 350kW charger will deliver 400km (248 miles) range in just 20 minutes. The vehicle’s target maximum WLTP driving range is 600km (373 miles). It comes with a standard capacity for receiving 22kW AC charging, which, where available, reduces plug-in time.
Lotus Electric Car Top Speed :
In addition, the company says that due to its dual front and rear motors, which produce 600 horsepower, the SUV can achieve a maximum speed of about 260 kmph and can sprint from 0 to 100 kmph in less than 3 seconds.
Lotus Electric Car Price :
Lotus has not yet released information about the price and trims / configuration of the 2024 Elector. However, the car and driver estimate that the initial cost of the 2024 Elater will be around $ 120,000. For the more powerful versions of Eletre, the price will be higher.
