Lotus Eletre, the brand's first mass-produced electric car and SUV, is expected to enter production only in 2023. The first production car reportedly rolled off the assembly line a few weeks ago. The electric vehicle has been assembled at a new $1.2 billion factory in Wuhan, marking the start of a new era for the British sports car maker.
This first off-road vehicle from Lotus is equipped with two 591hp engines. More powerful variants with over 900hp are reported but not yet confirmed and it has also been suggested that the battery capacity could be up to 120 kWh.
Following the launch of Eletre in 2023, Lotus plans to introduce two more high-riding crossovers and then its first all-electric sports car, all of which will hit the market in five years.
