Next year, Lotus will begin selling its first SUV, the all-electric “Eletre”. Designed as a high-performance luxury crossover, the Eletre will be the first of four new EVs made by British sports car makers.
Eletre comes with high quality technology: 15.1-inch OLED landscape touchscreen, electric reverse mirror display with integrated camera, 21-inch wheel (optional 23-inch wheel), 15-speaker KEF Surround Sound system (). Four drive settings: sports, travel, range, off-road. Approximately 7-inch ground clearance means it is an actual off-roader.
Range: 372 miles
Maximum speed: 160 mph
Base: 600 horsepower AWD dual-motor
Power version: 900 horsepower 3 motors
Charging time: 248 miles in 18 minutes with a 350kW charger.
The price will determine which EV it intends to compete with: the base version can be targeted to the Tesla Model X; The power model seems to be a serious challenger for the Porsche Tycoon Turbo S or even the Lambo Urus. I guess the price for the base model will be $ 85k to $ 100k, and the upgrade 3 motor 900HP power will be more like $ 130k-150k.
I really like the design – and its supercar glasses at a fraction of the price of a supercar.
