With an electric soul generating 907 HP and 985 Nm of torque, the Lotus Eletre R promises an exhilarating driving experience. Despite its 2650 Kg weight, it feels nimble at the steering wheel. The WLTP range is 490 km from a 112 kW battery, which weighs 650 kg. However, aggressive driving modes can deplete the range quickly. The car maintains a drag coefficient of 0.26, making it environmentally conscious, and it is equipped with a full suite of ADAS using 34 sensors. The suspension features twin-chambered air, aluminum multi-link with various driving modes, including a dedicated Track mode for an exciting driving experience.
