Not to be left out by the luxury auto marques and their SUV alternatives, Lotus has created the stunning four-door Emeya hyper-GT.
Bringing together the British auto baron’s rich heritage with intelligent performance and the latest cutting-edge technologies, Lotus has pushed the boundaries for how a luxury electric vehicle should look and handle.
The new model is packed with seductive sales points, from the pioneering active front grille, rear diffuser and rear spoiler; and an electronically controlled air suspension system whose sensors feel the road 1,000 times a second; to a low centre of gravity that Lotus calls ‘hyperstance’, and which enhances stability when driving.
The top specification model for Emeya features Lotus’ high-power dual motor set-up that delivers a top speed of more than 250km/h and can accelerate from 0-100km/h in under 2.8 seconds, making it one of the fastest electric GTs in the world.
To provide customers with confidence wherever they’re travelling, this neck-snapping performance is complemented by Lotus’ market-leading charging capabilities, which can add 150km of range with approximately five minutes of charge using a 350kW DC fast charger, and boost range up to 80% within 18 minutes.
Emeya has been consciously designed with advanced sustainable materials that are also sustainably sourced, to reduce its carbon footprint. This includes a new luxury thread made from repurposed fibres from the fashion industry as well as PVD aluminium, Alcantara, Nappa leather, and Ultrafabrics PU.
Ensuring that every occupant can enjoy an unrivalled music experience, the Emeya will also offer a truly immersive audio system developed with KEF. Emeya’s speaker system will elevate music listening to new levels thanks to 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 in a Lotus on the Eletre Hyper-SUV.
Emeya joins as a flagship model in Lotus’ line-up of luxury lifestyle electric vehicles, part of the company’s vision to become a global performance brand by 2028. Production is expected to begin in 2024.
