Lotus has a long and rich automaker’s history as well as other brands of its kind moving towards electric vehicles while trying to integrate its distinctive style as a brand – both present and past – into contemporary offerings. While Lotus’ Eletre hyper-SUV is the mainstay within its range The most recent offering falls roughly in the middle.
In 2025 Lotus Emeya will be the brand’s first hyper-GT that is electric and will be stepping into the role of a flagship model once it is launched. The Emeya name signifies the desire to achieve and a commitment to success and is a clear reference to Lotus its goal of becoming an international performance brand in 2028. If it can successfully blend the DNA of sports cars (courtesy of the 905 horsepower) with the four-door luxury and ease of use in the Emeya is yet to be determined.
2025 Lotus Emeya Redesign
The distinctive design of the brand new 2025 Lotus Emeya four-door hyper-GT has different opinions within CarBuzz. CarBuzz office. While some believe it’s uninteresting some appreciate the sleek lines. It’s not an arousing look, however. The front of the car borrows heavily from the Eletre SUV, however, the headlight clusters are completely different. Two parallel lines above the grille mark that it is the Emeya in a distance and the grille is a grille that is active as found in the Eletre. This assists in reducing drag and improving efficiency, while also cooling the braking system and batteries. It is the Lotus Emeya also sports an active air dam, which provides the downforce of high speed for great stability in the front.
The rear of the Emeya is sloping in its roofline, giving the appearance of a crossover that isn’t too far too expensive, given that the Emeya has a platform that is shared with its SUV counterpart and the Eletre. The tail has an active dual-layer rear spoiler that is 11.7 inches in size – which is almost four inches larger than the spoiler used on the Eletre. The automaker claims this will ensure an overall downforce of more than 470 lbs.
An active rear diffuser is also included, which helps to direct airflow under the car. With a total of eight vents that surround the Emeya car, it’s obvious Lotus focused on aerodynamics, whereas the aesthetics were a distant second. The design isn’t a complete mess. The wheel sizes are expected to vary from 20 to 223 inches which is the same as is the case with Eletre. We don’t have any confirmation of color options for the exteriors of the 2025 Lotus Emeya, although its similarity to the Eletre could make it easier for Lotus to keep modifications to the colors available. The colors include Natron red, Galloway Green, Stellar Black, Kaimu Grey, Blossom Grey, and that legendary Solar Yellow we know so well.
Lotus hasn’t shared the dimensions of the Emeya However, we do know that it’s built upon similar platforms as Eletre twhichwmeansthat it’s similar in certain measurements. Its wheelbase measures 118.9 inches, and the overall length is well over 200 inches. The Emeya is expected to be slightly less than the Eletre in terms of width, but the Ength is expected to be 85 inches, which is a bit smaller than the Eletre. It’s going to be much further from the ground, and the Eletre’s height, which is around 65 inches won’t remain the same. In terms of curbweight the hyper-GT’s electric motor isn’t going to be light but it’ll not be as heavy as its SUV counterpart, which could weigh as much as 5,800 pounds.
Powertrain and Performance
Lotus clearly states that the primary goal of this Emeya is to be fast, achieve high speeds, and meet the acceleration figures, it comes with the same configuration that is used in the Eletre. The engine that powers this Lotus Emeya is a high-power dual-motor system that produces power up to 905 HP (675 horsepower or kW) and 726 lbs-ft in force (985 Nm). This can take you from 62 mph 0-62 in 2.8 seconds. The power of passing is incredible and the Emeya will go from 50-75 speed in less than two seconds.
The Lotus Emeya comes with an all-wheel drive that is full-time with a dual-speed transmission as well as the company’s sophisticated transmission with a torque-distribution system. Racing-like brakes can bring this hyper-GT down in pursuit of the top speed of 159 mph. Lotus does mention”the “top-spec model” getting this set-up, but the likelihood of an inferior model at the beginning of the range is probable.
Of course, every aerodynamic device that is found on the outside of the Emeya is going to be utilized on the inside, with the front grille rear diffuser, and rear spoiler all playing their roles to keep the car fixed on the road. Lotus describes”the lowest center of gravity”. Emeya is equipped with the “hyperspace” that is said to increase stability and enhance performance and handling when driving at speeds. The entire technology utilized here is proof of the automaker’s efforts to bring together the principles of electric motors with the desire to drive and performance that results as the top of the cake. The bits and pieces used are the latest versions of the cutting-edge technology that helped Lotus achieve success on the track.
It’s not just about comfort but, while performance is certainly the primary consideration, the air suspension that is electronically controlled utilizes on-board sensors to scan the road 1000 times per second, and then adjust the vehicle’s response according This should positively impact the way that the Emeya can feel during relaxed cruises.
Range, Charging, and Battery Life
Actual numbers and specifications are not yet available however Lotus claims that we can expect roughly the same amount of range similar to the Eletre. The most powerful version of the car comes with a capacity of 302 miles per charge, whereas the less powerful models can reach 373 miles. In terms of charging power, the automaker claims that the Emeya will offer the best charging capabilities, including the ability to charge at 10-80% within 18 minutes. Owners will be able to increase their range to 93 miles within five minutes when connected to a 350-watt Fast charger for DC.
The interior of the 2025 Lotus Emeya promises to be both luxurious and tech-forward, and from what we can see in press materials, will be a roomy, ergonomically-oriented space. This Lotus Emeya seats only four passengers, with the rear seat passengers getting their seats instead of an elongated bench. On the front, passengers are likely to have the most space for their legs and head however, the rest of the seats will be covered in premium materials. This is not surprising, Lotus emphasizes the tactile surfaces to give you a luxurious feeling, but buyers must be aware that the company has created the cabin using advanced environmentally friendly materials that minimize emissions. In this regard, the Emeya makes use of a luxurious thread that is made from recycled fibers, cotton, and scraps of fabric from the clothing and fashion industry. This results in a material that is luxurious and lighter – and also more sustainable than conventional leather. Other fabrics that are expected to feature the standard, or optional are PVD aluminum Alcantara Nappa Leather and Ultrafabrics PU.
Tech will be prominently featured in the Lotus Emeya, with an interactive and awe-inspiring infotainment system that does the heavy lifting according to the carmaker. The audio system has been created in conjunction with KEF and the speakers come with the multi-award winning Uni-Q design as well as Uni-Core subwoofers that are space-saving. Similar to Eletre Eletre, Dolby Atmos 3D surround audio quality is standard. Its 15.1-inch HD OLED screen that we have seen on the Eletre is also used here. The images also reveal the front passenger interface on the dashboard. It is unclear if this will be standard, offered on higher trims or an option remains to be determined. We know that a 55-inch projection head-up display that is augmented reality is available, but.
Another piece of technology worth mentioning is an integrated road noise cancellation system that utilizes vibration sensors to detect specific levels of vibration coming from the wheels. It then generates an acoustic signal that is anti-phase through the speakers that block interference. As with the Eletre As with the Eletre, we anticipate the Emeya to be packed – particularly in higher-end trims – including the latest safety equipment and driver’s aids. Lotus confirms that it has real-time road information, navigation advanced driver assistance, danger warning and lane departure alert, forward collision alert, as well as Blind-spot tracking, are included. We’re not certain what we can expect regarding cargo space. In this respect, it appears that the 2025 Lotus Emeya is likely to provide less space than the Eletre can offer which is approximately 22 to 54 cubic feet in the back as well as an additional cubic foot, and a quarter in the front.
2025 Lotus Emeya Release Date & Price
While a date for the release of the 2025 Lotus Emeya hasn’t been specified however, the company has stated that production is planned for 2024. With such a long timeframe the USA will likely be seeing models arrive in 2025. There’s no specific price on the 2024 Lotus Emeya just yet, but it’s likely that it will require an outline that is at minimum six figures.
Utilizing an Eletre as a benchmark the base model could be priced around $120k with more expensive trims costing up to $150k. This places the 2025 Lotus Emeya in a unique place next to competitors like Porsche as its Taycan Turbo S (making less power with a mere 75 horsepower) comes with a price tag of $194,900. Even the Audi RS GT starts at a price of just $150k. its specs are less than impressive with 637 horsepower and an impressive 3.1-second time to reach 60mph. Jaguar is also expected to bring a super-GT with four doors on the market at some point in the future. The only EV that can truly compete on performance with the more modest Tesla Model S Plaid – it retails for less than $90k, produces 1,020 hp, and can reach 60 mph from 0-60 in less than two seconds.
