The only thing more controversial than a Ferrari SUV would be a Lotus SUV — which has been revealed as the Electre, a fully-electric crossover from the name that defined lightweight British sports cars for nearly 75 years. While "simplify, then add lightness" might not be Lotus' guiding principle anymore, the Electre promises performance. Lotus claims 600 horsepower driving all four wheels, with a maximum range of 373 miles and fast-charging capability, along with the company's legendary road-holding ability. The Chinese-built SUV will feature slightly ironic LIDAR self-driving tech, a world-first for a production car, and rides on a platform developed exclusively for Lotus — nothing is shared with Geely Group stablemates Volvo or Polestar. The Electre is on sale now for China, Europe, and UK markets, with the US introduction coming in 2024.
