Why the Lotus Eletre Is Uniquely Innovative

Were Lotus engineers thinking clearly when they designed the new Eletre?

The Lotus Eletre is probably the most un-Lotus ever, with a massive curb weight, lots of digital screens, and SUV body style. It does, however, offer the performance you’d expect from a Lotus, but there are some interesting quirks to it. From its aerodynamic features to some interesting design queues, and for better or worse, this is the Lotus Eletre.

2023 Lotus Eletre vs 2022 Tesla Model X

Is the new Lotus electric SUV much more capable than Tesla’s big boy?

Disguised as Type 132, the Eletre (pronounced as El-etra), is the British luxury sports car manufacturer’s newest and first take on the SUV market. It is a “hyper-SUV” that is destined to take down the “ludicrous” Tesla Model X, but can it really? Although the Lotus is yet to provide complete information about the Eletre, we are going to compare them side-by-side, so you can be the judge.

The Lotus Eletre Will Be the Heaviest Vehicle in Company History

As it turns out the Eletre is quite the porker, but that doesn’t mean it won’t be light for its segment

Lotus recently launched the all-new Eletre SUV, a model that’s been criticized for looking a bit too much like the Lamborghini Urus – or an evolution of it. There’s also some criticism around its billing as the “world’s first hyper SUV” when it doesn’t exactly post hypercar-like power or top speed, the latter of which comes in at 161 mph, by the way. 100 km/h or 62.1 mph is said to come in less than three seconds, but as of today, power output has only been disclosed at “from 600 horsepower.” Hyper SUV? Doesn’t seem like it, but that could just be consequential as a pair of new reports expose not only the Eletre’s weight but what else Lotus has planned for its future.

The 2023 Lotus Eletre – All Fluff And No Substance?

Was the Lotus Eletre hyped more than what it could deliver?

29th March 2022. This date was supposed to go down in the books as one of the most important milestones in Lotus’ modern history. It was the day the company embraced the two evolving aspects – SUVs and electrification – of the auto industry and took its first step towards the same by debuting its first all-electric production SUV, the Eletre. Now, the company built up the hype for a very long time and revealed the product with fairly decent specs. But, given the competition, the time it took to roll out an SUV, and the fact that it called a 600-HP vehicle a “hyper SUV”, was the Eletre a disappointment?
