The British company, Lotus Cars Limited is well known for producing vehicles with refined designs, luxury materials, and high-end technology. The most recent model revealed is the new electro-car – Lotus Eletre. It is also famous for producing racing and sports cars known for their minimal weight and excellent handling qualities. Thanks to its increadible team, Lotus has historically competed in Formula One racing and won the World Championship seven times.
What we love most about this new model is that in order to contribute positively to the environment, the company created an electric car with outstanding and thoughtful design, advanced technology, high end materials, and incredible shape. This car can be found in three different models which are the Eletre, Eletre S, and Eletre R.
Even before you start the engine, Lotus Eletre experience can amaze you. Giving a unique moment with the button on the key or smartphone app to start the car; the active front grille which ‘breathes’, the outside lights of the automobile cycle through a brief sequence, and consequently, the illuminated flush door handles open.
The design of the car is the first thing that has to be mentioned while describing the vehicle, given that it is probably the first thing that catches your attention. The Eletre car has a very refined and thoughtful design, starting with the fact that ‘porosity’ of the design, which refers to the aerodynamic idea of air flowing through the car as well as beneath, over, and around it. This is a distinguishing feature determined to provide superiority to the customer. Porosity has definite positive advantages for the driver, including less resistance when cutting through the air and a more efficient voyage with increased range, speed, and performance. Giving a big emphasis on speed and performance.
Using the inventive and ground-breaking usage of smart technology, this model can be highly ranked on the innovation scale. An easy-to-use and seamless connected experience is the end product and was indeed well achieved. The Warwickshire design team and the Lotus team in China, who have extensive experience in the fields of user interface and user experience, worked together on this project to create the best product possible, joining ideas, opinions, and profound knowledge in the matter in order to create a groundbreaking product in terms of technological assets.
Vehicle architecture is one of the most important features in any car, and in the Lotus Eletre, it is one of the best features. The Eletre car is constructed using a brand-new, integrated high-voltage power distribution system and 800v dedicated to the electric vehicle architecture.
Several thought-through ideas were applied to provide the best experience ever to the architecture of the vehicle, as the following; to be able to achieve the highest level of structural rigidity, this outstanding architecture combines high tensile steel and aluminum, in order to achieve a low center of gravity and uphold the basic Lotus commitment of exceptional dynamic performance, the flat “skateboard-style” battery pack and electric motors are placed near to the ground. The battery pack’s high energy density offers the ideal blend of driving range and performance. Finally, two electric motors are present, one driving the front wheels and the second one the other the back wheels. A three-in-one electric drive system, a very Lotus solution, combines each motor with a controller and reducer. This effective design makes the device smaller and lighter, which we know is a real plus conformity while driving.
Overall, it is easy to say there is not a single detail of this car that wasn’t properly analyzed and thought of. Having a unique design regarding car features and accommodation features, high-end thought-through technology innovatively applied to the vehicle, and incredible shape. The Lotus Eletre is for sure, your new dream car.
