Lotus Eletre | First Drive Review

Does The Impressive Numeric Data Translate Into An Equally Impressive Experience?






At first glance, the Lotus Eletre R exhibits a striking resemblance to the Lamborghini Urus, especially in its signature Lamborghini yellow color. Despite this, they are as different as sunshine and rain. The car boasts a sporty look, turning heads with eight air curtains within its electric Premium architecture. The materials used include a combination of high-strength steel, aluminum, and carbon fiber, complemented by Alcantara and Napa leather inside the cabin. The bonnet resembles that of a raised sports car, angular headlights, bulging fenders, and a sporty rear that is visually appealing. The interior features plenty of air curtains for stability and downforce, along with a premium sound system and ambient lighting. The rear seats can accommodate four to five passengers but may not be as comfortable despite sufficient legroom.
