Lotus electric sedan will compete with Porsche Taycan

Let’s be honest and admit that few people would have thought that we would be careless talking about an electric car from Lotus, which will follow the SUV, as well as without an internal combustion engine.

Some of us have the impression that Norfolk PR people will simply continue to sell Elise / Exige and Evora forever, regularly releasing special performances. However, everything changed when Geely bought the company, placing it under the same corporate dome as Volvo.

In the yard of 2022, Eletre is officially released, and next year will be an electric sedan. In fact, the rival Porsche Taycan, now codenamed Type 133, is set to appear in 2023 as the second Chinese-made model after the SUV. The British magazine Autocar received preliminary information about the new showroom.

It is believed that the design of the sedan is about to be agreed upon, and Lotus notes that it will be something more than just Eletre in the garden body. According to Peter Horberry, senior vice president of design, “every member of the family can have a character.” However, the company must have a cohesive design, so “there must be some continuity and family identity.”

Expect an aerodynamic exterior design and a high-tech minimalist interior that will be Lotus’s answer to the Taycan GTS. Given that the Elite has two engines with a total output of 592 horsepower, the sedan should have the same power as the SUV and the competitive model. However, Lotus has already announced that there will be more powerful versions, so Type 133 may eventually compete with Turbo and/or Turbo S.

According to the managing director of the company Matt Windle, the SUV in the initial specification with a capacity of 592 hp. – This is where we start – that’s not all. In fact, there are already rumors of a three-engine Eletre with a whopping 900 hp. power, which will still be less than the Tesla Model S Plaid and Lucid Air Dream Edition Performance.

The expansion of the Lotus family will continue in 2024 with the Type 134 as a smaller electric crossover built-in Wuhan that will compete with the next-generation Porsche Macan. In 2026, the result of the cooperation with Alpine will be an electric sports car, which will be assembled at home in the Hotel. Renault will receive its own version, which will replace the A110 coupe with a medium engine location.
