Automotive Lotus Eletre

Lotus Eletre Launch In Malaysia Just Weeks Away


The all-new and all-electric Lotus Eletre is a striking and progressive Hyper-SUV which will be arriving in Malaysia officially with full warranty and after sales in a few short weeks and its asking price will have many premium luxury petrol powered SUV brand guardians a little worried.

Why worried? Well, this Lotus SUV is large, quick and luxurious making a direct rival to the Lamborghini Urus and Aston Martin DBX which is priced more than triple with Malaysian duties added.

The Eletre is 4WD SUV and has a battery capacity that is over 100kWh and with power from 600hp. A 350kW charger will deliver a 400km (248 miles) range in just 20 minutes.

The Eletre’s target maximum WLTP driving range is 600km (373 miles). It also comes with the ability as standard to accept 22kW AC charging which, where available, reduces the time plugged in.

This all electric Lotus will be sold duty free until the end of 2025 (thanks to the EV duty free status accorded by our government) to encourage electric vehicle ownership. We guess a selling price of around RM688,888.00 or so.
