Lotus presents the 905 hp electric hyper GT Emeya

After the Evija hypercar and the Eletre SUV, Lotus has presented the third electric model in its range: the Emeya, a four-door grand tourer conceived as a rival to the Porsche Taycan. Seated on the well-known EPA platform, this high-flying sedan promises to combine the driving dynamics and performance typical of the British brand with a level of luxury and refinement beyond any doubt.

Its suggestive design language leaves no one indifferent. The daytime running lights are made up of two superimposed L-shaped modules (the main focus is integrated into a false air intake in the bumper), while the continuous lights are strongly reminiscent of those on the Eletre. The roof is painted black, allowing the shark fin-shaped C-pillar to stand out.

The Emeya body boasts numerous active aerodynamic elements: the front grille, front splitter, spoiler, and diffuser combine to provide the car with greater downforce at high speed. Nor can we fail to mention the use of cameras to replace mirrors and built-in door handles.

The cabin accommodates four individual seats in a 2+2 configuration, as is usually the norm in sports sedans. Lotus is committed to sustainability through the use of ecological materials such as upholstery made from cotton waste from the fashion industry, as well as Nappa leather and Alcantara.

The 55-inch Head-up Display with augmented reality complements the three displays on the dashboard (digital instrumentation, touch screen of the infotainment system, and dashboard for the co-pilot). There is also an advanced 3D surround sound system with noise cancellation, designed to offer the best possible onboard experience.

Its two-motor powertrain gives it all-wheel drive, 905 HP (675 kW) of power, and 985 Nm of torque, which translates into a 0-62 mph time of 2.78 seconds and a top speed of 159 mph. It is interesting to note that, like the Taycan, it is equipped with a two-speed automatic transmission on the rear axle.

Although it has been confirmed that its battery has 102 kWh capacity, its official range is still unknown, although it most likely exceeds 373 miles WLTP. Connected to a 350 kW station, it goes from 10 to 80% charge in 18 minutes, recovering 100 miles of range in just 5 minutes.
