Lotus Eletre Specs and Pricing Revealed

The Lotus Eletre R Hits 60 MPH In Under 3 Seconds, Costs $135,000

Lotus has revealed the Eletre, their first-ever, all-electric SUV, complete with detailed performance specifications and pricing that are nothing short of impressive!

The “base” Lotus Eletre has 603 HP and 523 lb-ft of torque, and claims 373 miles of range on a full charge. The price for the base model starts at £89,500 (about $108,200).

The Lotus Eletre S uses the same drivetrain as the base model but offers more niceties like privacy glass, soft-closing doors, configurable ambient lighting, an air purification system, auto-dimming side mirrors, and a 2,160-watt, 23-speaker KEF Reference audio setup. The S trim costs £104,500 (just over $125,000).

Then there’s the top-tier Eletre R, which offers way more power at 905 HP and 726 lb-ft of torque. Lotus says that this trim can go 0-60 in 2.95 seconds — not the world’s fastest SUV, but it’s still super-quick. The R trim also comes with Track Mode that provides a lowered ride height and performance-oriented settings for the dampers. This beast is priced at £120,000 (about $145,000).

“Confirmation of the pricing and specs of the Lotus Eletre is a key moment in the transformation of Lotus through our Vision80 strategy. We know from media and customer feedback that they’re hugely excited by the arrival of this car – indeed, the Eletre has already won awards as 2023’s ‘most excited to see’ new model. Customer deliveries start during the first half of next year,” says Matt Windle, Group Vice-President and Managing Director, Lotus Cars. “The launch of the Eletre is the natural next step for Lotus. Two-seater sports cars are not for everyone, and we want to offer a Lotus for every stage of your life. The Eletre is the start of that.”

Lotus also claims that the Eletre R can drive the Nürburgring autonomously, so that riders could, “experience the thrilling driving performance and dynamic capability of a (905 HP) Lotus from the driving seat.” Honestly, that whole concept sounds pants-s***tingly terrifying.
