The British automaker known for producing small and lightweight sports cars will soon launch its largest model to date. The sleekly shaped full-size Eletre, which will be built in China, is expected to go on sale globally in 2023 as a 2024 model. It will offer plenty of luxury accoutrements for up to five passengers, or four if the available second-row bucket seats are selected. The powertrain consists of front and rear electric motors producing a net 600 horses. They’re supported by a 100-kilowatt battery pack that allows the Eletre to travel up to 300-plus miles on a full charge. A zero-to-60-mph acceleration time of less than 3.0 seconds is also claimed by Lotus. Drive-mode settings include Range, Tour, Sport and Off-road that adjust the adjustable active air suspension, four-wheel steering and throttle functions.
