Lotus is increasingly focusing on its electric future, which will see the arrival of a 100% electric version of the Elise.
If the Lotus Eletre is primarily intended to attract more customers, the British brand will quickly return to its habits with the Type 134. Behind this code name hides the next 100% electric two-seater sports car, which will replace the Emira . From now on, the calendar and the price list are becoming clearer.
This is what our English colleagues from Autocar indicate, following an interview with Mike Johnstone: “At the very center of the brand must always be this lightweight sports car. This gives the credibility needed to create other products with sporty features”specifies the sales director of Lotus.
A Lotus Elise which will not necessarily be light
Ready to see the project through to the end even in the absence of Alpine, with which Lotus was initially to develop this sports car, the English brand has indicated that this electric Elise will be based on the e-Sports platform. Lighter than the structure of an Emira, it will save precious kilos.
Because even if the sports car promises to be one of the lightest electric vehicles, it will not be a featherweight. And for good reason, the smallest battery would be 66.4 kWh. It will allow the car to reach an approved range of 480 km. Price-wise, the Lotus Elise of the future will also change size, and would require a check for nearly £75,000.
