The ongoing transformation of Lotus to a truly global performance car brand has reached its most significant milestone yet.
The all-new and all-electric Lotus Eletre is a striking and progressive Hyper-SUV – the first of a new breed of pure electric SUVs. It takes the core principles and Lotus DNA from more than 70 years of sports car design and engineering, evolving them into a desirable all-new lifestyle car for the next generation of Lotus customers.
Every Eletre comes with exceptional dynamics, outstanding comfort, and true Lotus performance. The car has a five-link suspension at the rear for optimized ride and handling, while standard equipment includes air suspension and Continuous Damping Control (CDC). Active ride height, active rear-axle steering, an active anti-roll bar, and torque vectoring via braking are all available.
The car comes with four drive modes, which adjust the steering, damper settings, powertrain, and accelerator pedal response. The modes are Range, Tour, Sport, Off-Road, and Individual, and are standard on all versions of the car.
