Lotus has embarked on an ambitious journey aiming to sell 150,000 cars annually by 2028, revealing a range of state-of-the-art EVs to achieve this goal. Among them is the Emeya electric saloon, leveraging the same core technology as the Eletre SUV.

Positioned as a competitor to upscale four-door EVs from renowned brands like Porsche, Mercedes-AMG, and Tesla, the Emeya is priced at £94,950 and is currently open for orders.

Built on the 800V Electric Premium Architecture (EPA) platform shared with its SUV counterpart, the Emeya boasts a dual-motor setup, generating up to 893bhp in the range-topping Emeya R variant, priced at £129,950. This formidable power output surpasses even the Taycan Turbo by 21bhp.

Notably, the rear motor features a two-speed transmission for enhanced power delivery across various speed ranges, resulting in impressive acceleration figures. The Emeya R dashes from 0 to 62mph in just 2.78 seconds and achieves a top speed of 159mph, showcasing its remarkable performance capabilities.

The Emeya lineup also includes the base Emeya and Emeya S variants, which are anticipated to employ a 595bhp dual-motor configuration akin to the Eletre. Equipped with a 102kWh battery, the Emeya offers a range of up to 379 miles and supports rapid charging, allowing for 10-80% charging in 18 minutes using 350kW chargers.

Promising class-leading dynamics, the Emeya features electronically controlled air suspension and a suite of chassis electronics inherited from the Eletre, including rear-wheel steering and active anti-roll bars.

Its exterior design embraces the ‘porous’ theme introduced by the Evija hypercar, enhancing aerodynamic efficiency while providing ample cooling for the battery and brakes.

Inside, the Emeya boasts a tech-forward cabin adorned with sustainable materials and advanced features, including a massive 15.1-inch touchscreen display, motorized doors, and a premium sound system.

Order books are now open, with deliveries expected to commence in the third quarter of this year, setting the stage for an intriguing showdown with competitors like the new Porsche Taycan.
