Lotus to enter the Indian market with Emira & Eletre EV

Lotus will offer the Emira and Eletre electric SUV through Exclusive Motors in New Delhi.

British sports car maker Lotus plans to foray into the Indian market. According to a media report, Lotus will offer the Emira and Eletre electric SUV through Exclusive Motors in New Delhi.

The Lotus Emira was introduced in 2021. The 2-door coupe borrows design cues from the all-electric Evija hypercar. It has an all-new interior featuring a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and a 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay connectivity, and a 10-speaker audio system.

The Lotus Emira is available with a choice of two engines - a Toyota-sourced 3.5-litre supercharged V6 petrol engine with either manual or automatic transmission and a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-petrol unit from Mercedes-AMG paired with a dual-clutch automatic transmission.

The Eletre is the brand's first all-electric SUV. It is based on the Electric Premium Architecture and features a dual-motor setup producing over 600 BHP. Lotus claims that the Eletre can sprint from 0 - 100 km/h in under 3 seconds and can reach a top speed of 260 km/h. The electric motor is paired with a battery pack of over 100 kWh, offering a range of 600 km on a single charge (WLTP cycle).
