Lotus has been known to make lightweight sportscars in the past but it is now entering the hotly contested performance SUV space with its all-electric Eletre. The headline stats includes a huge 112kWh battery pack and twin motors which pack in an absurd 905hp in its top-spec ‘R’ trim. Saner variants with 602hp are also available.
With a 0-60-mph time of just 2.9 seconds- it is the fastest electric SUV by a mile. A slightly less glamorous but important figure is the 373-mile range estimate on a full charge. Amongst other details, the “active grille” that breathes is a cool touch and so is the floating OLED touchscreen. Prices start at $84,500 for the base model while the R brings the price to well above $100,000.
