four new models to come!

Lotus details its future electric plan, with four future models!

Lotus’ grand plan is apparently well underway. The small British manufacturer, carried by the Chinese group Geely, recently unveiled its latest thermal car, the Emira. At the same time, the brand announced its future launch in China, backed by investments of more than 2 billion euros. Moreover, the brand will establish itself over the long term in the region, via a new division called Lotus Technology.

Lotus Technology will be entitled to its own seat, in the now famous city of Wuhan. Then a huge factory of more than one million m2 will emerge in the same city, with a production capacity of 150,000 vehicles per year, or about 15 times the current production of the brand.

Type 132 to 135: four electric Lotus

To meet these sales targets, Lotus will launch more mainstream cars. In 2022, a large SUV, for the moment named Type 132. The Type 132 will of course be electric, like all Lotus news to come. It should take the size of an Audi Q7 for example, and therefore should probably greatly exceed two tonnes. The purists will cringe …

Then, a large electric four-door coupe, the Type 133, will arrive for 2023. In 2025, Lotus will launch another SUV, smaller (Audi Q5 format), logically nicknamed Type 134. The Type 135 will finally sign the return of Lotus to sports cars , and will be the famous electric berlinetta

jointly developed with Alpine. It should land in 2026.

Large batteries and great autonomy

These first three models, the two SUVs and the four-door coupe, will be part of the “lifestyle” range for Lotus, which is supposed to bring the bulk of sales. This range will be developed and produced by Lotus Technology, therefore in China. These three models, the Type 132, 133 and 134, will be based on a brand new platform developed for the occasion, called Premium architecture. She will be able to accommodate wheelbases between 2.89 m and 3.10 m (very large, therefore), and accommodate batteries between 92 and 120 kWh. With an 800V charging system, charging times should be reduced as much as possible, while Lotus announces 0 to 100 km / h in less than 3 seconds for these three models.

The sportswoman will remain a pure product of the workshops in Hethel, England. It should stay closer to the DNA of Lotus, since designed with Alpine, the other big name in ultra-light sports.
