Check out the review:

As a business that has teetered on the edge of extinction at many points in its history, Lotus understands all about the principle of reinventing itself. Although the brand is in fine monetary fettle nowadays with owner Geely at the wheel, the end of the combustion period suggests that Lotus is as soon as again looking for a new instructions.

The brand name's first all new production design to be funded and established under Geely ownership is the Eletre– a five-seater, all- SUV that will usher in a new generation of battery-powered Lotuses. Big, brash and filled with innovation, it's a world far from the stripped-back two-seaters that made Lotus a household name. However times modification, and as the success of vehicles like the Porsche Cayenne and Lamborghini Urus continues to reveal, big supercar SUVs are big business.

With a 112kWh battery, 350kW charging, 373 miles of variety and supercar efficiency, the Eletre certainly looks the part on paper. Question is, do these extraordinary figures translate to a fantastic vehicle? Join Mike as he puts the new Lotus Eletre through its rates.

    I think that it looks a lot like a Leaf from the side.

    Regarding the camera mirrors, I know that the main reason for them is to reduce drag, which is very important for electric vehicles. But it’s got me thinking, is there a way to do a mechanical version of those? I find myself concerned as to what happens if there’s some kind of an electrical failure while you’re driving. But it seems to me that, periscope and lens and mirror technology want to be able to give you a real world view of what’s going on outside the car. I’m sure I’m being silly, but at the same time it would be very cool.

    Looking at the gear controls, it looks like even Lotis has been subject to these systems that do not retain gear state. I’m halfway through the video, but I would’ve thought that would’ve been demonstrated earlier. But it looks like it’s one of those buttons where you push it up to changed and you push it down to change, etc.

    If I’m wrong, then great, but I really don’t understand why all these vehicles insist on having Shift systems that don’t allow you to put the button or a lever or something else into a fixed position for each gear. It doesn’t need to be mechanically connected, but by having to look at what gear you’re in, you open yourself up for accidentally missing a gear change. That is to say, And driving where you are in a parking lot or other situation, where you’re changing direction from forward to reverse, I would much prefer that the lever is in the Ford position while we’re driving, and then, when I switch to the rear word position, that’s in reverse, so that I can make adjustments and tight maneuvers without having to look at the screen or at the Lover.

    Colin Chapman: “Simplify then add lightness”.

    Lotus 2023: Eletre – 2.5 tonnes, 2.2 metre width.

    That is not a Lotus in my opinion; I suspect Chapman would agree.

    Good review of an interesting car. Lotus Engineering seems to have done a really smart job in adding features that may justify the high price. Your comparisons with the Tesla etc suggests this is what they’ve achieved. And for those quoting Colin Chapman and lightness – it’s an ELECTRIC car. He wouldn’t be upset, he’d embrace the future.
