The 2024 Lotus Eletre, an all-electric hyper-SUV, marks a significant shift in Lotus's design philosophy, combining 75 years of sports car heritage with the innovative possibilities of EV technology. Its exterior, characterized by a cab-forward stance, long wheelbase, and short overhangs, imbues it with the appearance of a high-riding sports car rather than a traditional SUV. The Eletre's design is further enhanced by its aerodynamic 'porosity', allowing air to flow through, under, over, and around the vehicle, thereby reducing drag and improving performance and range.

Under the hood, the Eletre offers powerful dual electric motors, providing all-wheel drive and high torque, essential for its lightning-fast acceleration and control. This SUV can accelerate 0-62 mph in as little as 2.95 seconds, with a top speed of 165 mph in the Eletre R trim. Aerodynamically, it features curved blades and a deployable spoiler, enhancing its high-speed stability and road handling.

Inside, the Eletre showcases a luxurious and tech-savvy interior, equipped with cutting-edge features like a slimline central touchscreen, advanced navigation functionality, and a comprehensive Lotus Hyper OS. The digital cockpit includes a high-definition OLED instrument cluster and an interactive head-up display, enhancing both the driving experience and safety.

In terms of range, the Eletre excels with a maximum of 373 miles, supported by its 112 kWh lithium-ion battery. Charging is both fast and convenient, with a 20-minute charge on a 350kW DC rapid charger providing significant mileage, and a full charge achievable overnight using a 22kW AC wallbox.

The Eletre's dimensions and weight reflect its robust build and electric SUV character, starting at a kerb weight of 5,489.5 Ibs and offering substantial luggage capacity. The pricing for the Eletre begins at around $115,000, varying up to $155,000 depending on the trim and options chosen, making it a competitive entrant in the luxury electric SUV market.

The 2024 Lotus Eletre features an exterior that is both daring and dramatic, highlighting the brand's evolution into electric vehicle design. This all-electric hyper-SUV combines Lotus's 75-year sports car design heritage with a new design language suitable for an EV. Its exterior is marked by a cab-forward stance, a long wheelbase, and minimal overhangs at both ends, giving it a visually light appearance akin to a high-riding sports car rather than a traditional SUV.

A key design feature is its 'porosity', an aerodynamic principle allowing air to flow through, under, over, and around the vehicle. This principle, previously seen in the Lotus Evija and Emira, is evident in the Eletre, especially where air channels under the vehicle and exits through vents in the bonnet. Porosity reduces aerodynamic drag, enhancing both performance and range.

The front of the Eletre showcases a sharp and crisp leading edge, with design cues from the Emira and Evija. This includes layered surfaces and a streamlined performance focus. The vehicle features super-slim, technical light clusters with full LED headlights using Matrix technology and a unique High Beam Spot Module with active cornering light. The front also includes an active grille, contributing to the vehicle's porosity.

The Eletre's profile is dominated by muscular haunches, with air outlets behind the front wheels shaping the doors. The vehicle also features deployable door handles for smoother surfacing. The windscreen has a sports car-like rake of 27 degrees, leading to a tapering roofline and a floating D-pillar with an 'air blade' for drag reduction, a concept taken from the Emira.

At the rear, a full-width ribbon light strip includes a scrolling directional indicator and changes color for different functions. The Eletre also boasts a unique carbon fiber 'floating' split roof spoiler with a central section removed for weight reduction and LIDAR sensor integration.

In terms of dimensions, the Eletre is 5,103mm long, 2,135mm wide (with Electric Reverse Mirror Displays), and has a wheelbase of 3,019mm. The drag coefficient starts from 0.26, and the kerb weight ranges from 5,489.5 lbs to 5,820.2 lbs depending on the configuration. The SUV offers substantial luggage capacity, with up to 1,532 litres available when rear seats are folded.
