Chris’ Cool Cars: Lotus Eletre SUV
Well, it’s well known by now that Ferrari is coming out with its first SUV, and the only thing that is more controversial than that would be a Lotus SUV. Well, here comes the controversy. Lotus has revealed the all new Eletre, a fully-electric crossover.
“Simplify, then add lightness” was once an important guiding principle for Lotus, and though that may be hard to implement into a crossover, Lotus promises performance with the new Eletre. 600 horsepower to all four wheels with a range of about 373 miles and the company’s legendary handling sounds promising.
The new SUV will be Chinese-built by the Geely Group which also builds the impressive Volvo Polestar models. The Eletre is on sale now in China, Europe the UK, with the US introduction coming in 2024.
