Lotus Emeya Arrives As The Brand’s First Fully Electric Hyper GT
The Lotus Emeya is expected to begin production in 2024 and release in 2025
British supercar manufacturer, Lotus, has just unveiled its newest product, the Emeya, the brand’s first four-door hyper-GT, in New York City. Feng Qingfeng, CEO, Lotus Group also stated, “Bringing together our rich heritage with intelligent performance and the latest cutting-edge technologies, we’re pushing the boundaries for how a luxury electric vehicle should look and handle- making it truly for the drivers.”
The Lotus Emeya is setting a new benchmark for how a Lotus drives and feels by combining the company’s 75-year expertise in engineering and design, with the latest advanced innovations, bringing drivers an electric car that is exciting to drive and performs exceptionally.
Moreover, this includes advanced and active aerodynamic features such as the pioneering active front grille, rear diffuser and rear spoiler. All this, combined with a low centre of gravity which Lotus calls ‘hyperstance,’ enhances stability when driving, and sets a new standard in the GT segment for ride and handling excellence.
The Lotus Emeya also has an electronically controlled air suspension system as well as advanced onboard sensors that feel the road 1,000 times a second and automatically adjust the vehicle to ensure the smoothest ride making it not only powerful but also extremely comfortable.
The top spec Lotus Emeya model will reportedly feature the brand’s high-power dual motor set-up giving the Hyper GT a top speed of more than 250km/h and a century sprint time of under 2.8 seconds, making it one of the fastest electric GTs in the world.
To alleviate some range anxiety while travelling, the Lotus Emeya is capable of adding about 150km of range with approximately five minutes of charge using a 350kW DC fast charger, as well as boost range up to 80 percent within 18 minutes.
On top of that, the Lotus Emeya has been consciously designed with advanced sustainable materials that are also sustainably sourced, to reduce its carbon footprint including a new luxury thread made from repurposed fibres from the fashion industry, as well as PVD aluminium, Alcantara, Nappa leather, and Ultrafabrics PU.
The Lotus Emeya will also offer a truly immersive audio system developed with KEF, featuring KEF’s award-winning Uni-Q speaker design and Uni-Core space-saving subwoofer enclosure, as well as Dolby Atmos-enabled 3D surround sound, first seen on the Lotus Eletre Hyper SUV.
Lotus Emeya brings together emotion and logic, power, and precision, and connects the strength of Lotus sports car DNA with four-door luxury and comfort. The name Emeya was also chosen to embody the ambition and commitment as part of the brand’s vision to become a global performance brand by 2028.
