Lotus has long made lightness and its impact on — among other things — handling a hallmark of its range of sports cars, and to that the Emeya adds the near-instantaneous power that electrification permits. In its most potent form, the Emeya has a pair of electric motors that collectively deliver up to 905 horsepower, the automaker promises.
On the outside, the Emeya sports a sleeker version of the fascia we’ve already seen on the Eletre. There’s also an active front grille for adjustable aero and cooling, together with a rear diffuser and a self-adjusting rear spoiler for controlling downforce. Lotus also claims that the fastback rear and sloping roofline — together with the sculpted side panels — improve efficiency, though so far details on things like battery capacity and estimated range are conspicuous by their absence.
However, it did reveal DC fast-charging capabilities that unlock 93 miles (150 km) of range in five minutes with a reliable 350 kW fast charger. Meanwhile, Emeya has electric air suspension with sensors that “feel the road” up to 1,000 times a second to deliver that trademarked Lotus ride quality.
The all-new Lotus Emeya boasts a four-seat interior with threads and materials derived from repurposed fibers. Unique features include a KEF audio system with Uni-Q speakers, Uni-Core subwoofers, and Dolby Atmos 3D surround sound. Lotus claims Emeya production should begin in 2024, with more details coming soon.
