Lotus doesn’t just offer high-performance cars. Its charging stations are also in the category of the fastest on the market: up to 480 kW.
Lotus’ arrival on the electric car market will not only be with its different cars. Lotus, which is also a major automotive engineering company, intends to become a player in fast charging. But be careful, the British manufacturer does not intend to follow Tesla, Porsche or Mercedes on the path of deploying its own network.
Lotus more soberly offers fast charging terminals for sale. Terminals that can therefore possibly be found later in different charging networks. Lotus thus wants to participate in the deployment of very fast charging solutions, which will take advantage of the characteristics of its own vehicles. Remember that the Eletre can absorb up to 430 kW in direct current.
Mercedes has opened its first high-power charging station in Europe
Its offer therefore consists of an electrical cabinet intended to power up to four associated terminals, as well as an independent terminal. The whole thing uses liquid cooling technology to optimize its performance. The electrical cabinet can reach a power of 480 kW, and the independent terminal maxes out at 450 kW. On the latter, Lotus announces that an Eletre recovers 142 km of autonomy (WLTP) in five minutes of charging.
These different pieces of equipment have already started their deployment in China. Lotus is now targeting Europe and the Middle East.
Note that at the Shanghai Motor Show last April, Lotus also presented a charging robot associated with its fast charger.
