Lotus Cars have been on a roll of late with a host of all-new models that not only look the part, but they all make use of the latest electric car technologies and the resulting overall package is amazing. On the SUV front, the new Lotus Eletre is one of those cars that has it all - the looks, the onboard technology and the power. The SUV has been released with three trim options with a choice of two powertrains: Eletre, Eletre S and Eletre R, and the latter is the top dog that we’re most interested in. When news of the Eletre broke news, the listed specs looked very interesting because the claimed power outputs were some of the highest we’ve seen for an all-electric car. In fact, the specs and details were so good that customers around the world have not only expressed proper interest in buying one, but thousands have put down physical deposits to make sure they secure a car before they’re in even more demand. And they definitely will be after seeing Mat Watson do an in-depth review along with the usual Carwow real-world testing. In the UK, the Eletre is priced from £89,500 (just over R2 000 000) which is fair for this kind of tech and spec, and if you want the range-topping Eletre R the price rises to £120 000 (R2 800 000), which is high but when you consider that it offers up so much performance that it can be classes as a Hyper SUV.
Take a look at the YouTube video from our man Mat Watson at Carwow as he takes a proper close look at the amazing new Lotus Eletre, the all-electric offering that looks like it may just be the fastest of it's kind to date, which is why you may want to fast forward the review part of the video to the testing part, although watching the full thing is way better, of course: New 900hp Lotus Eletre review with 0-60mph & 1/4-mile TEST! | carwow
