Mat's finally got his hands on the Lotus Eletre!
For starters, let's have a look at the looks. From the front end, there's a sloping bonnet and an entire host of vents, and if anything it advises us a bit of the Lamborghini Urus! However, unlike the Urus, every vent you can see on this cars and truck serves a function – there's no fakery here! Moving down the side you'll keep in mind there are black surrounds around the windows and on the side mirrors, and around the back, there's a set of small spoilers, a bootlip spoiler and a few more vents to assist improve performance.
Step within and the excellent appearances continue! The interior has a sporty feel to it, with high-quality products discovered throughout the cabin. There are a variety of physical switches which feel quite tough, and even the tiniest areas or buttons are made to feel pricey. What's more, there's a choice of 3 screens – a little digital dial screen for the driver, a huge infotainment screen, and after that a little screen for the traveler to use.
The quality continues through to the back seats, too, where there's the alternative to add two sports seats similar to what you'll find in the front! These can also be electrically operated.
There will be 2 versions of the Eletre on sale, and both come with dual motors and a 112kWh battery. The entry-level Eletre & Eletre S can produce 603hp, while the range-topping Eletre R can produce 905hp! What's more, the R should have the ability to hit 60mph in under 3 seconds! When it pertains to price, the Eletre starts from ₤ 89,500, rising up to ₤ 120,000 for the R edition.
But is it worth it? And should you choose it over the similarity a Tesla Design X Plaid? Stick with Mat and see for yourself!
