Lotus Emeya Electric Sedan Debuts: 905 Horsepower, Active Aerodynamics

Lotus today unveiled the Emeya, its new flagship, at a glamorous ceremony in New York City. The electric four-door sedan, previously known as the Type 133, will present a brand-new competition to vehicles like the Tesla Model S and the Porsche Taycan Turbo. It has cutting-edge technology and is the company’s first four-door sedan since the 1990s’ Carlton, which was based on the Opel Omega. The sedan has a strong emphasis on aerodynamics. The Eletre SUV introduced an active grille that is used on the new Lotus to cool the brakes and batteries when it is open and to minimize drag and increase efficiency when it is closed. To increase downforce for canyon carving and track driving, there is also an active front spoiler, an active diffuser with motorsport inspiration, and an active rear spoiler.The active rear spoiler is 11.0 inches wide, 3.9 inches wider than the one on the Eletre, generating a net downforce of 474 pounds at an unspecified speed.

The interior of the Emeya emphasizes the use of sustainable materials. The first automaker to employ a novel type of yarn is Lotus. The manufacturer employs yarn made from cotton waste from the fashion and apparel sectors for the interior upholstery. In addition to being a sustainable kind of luxury, it is lighter than leather.
Additionally, Lotus uses techniques like physical vapour deposition (PVD) to apply metallic treatments to several interior surfaces. Other places have Alcantara, ultra-fabric polyurethane, and Nappa leather.

The interior is composed of more than just eco-friendly elements. Noise cancellation is integrated into a KEF 3D surround sound system, and outside vibration sensors monitor tire and suspension movement. The speakers are then used by algorithms to produce “anti-phasing acoustic signals” to reduce

“This is a completely new Lotus, something never seen before. Building on what Lotus has accomplished to this day, we have created a luxury car that delivers outstanding performance for the driving enthusiast, designed to inspire confidence and excitement,” said Ben Payne, Lotus Group’s vice president of design.

The company will reveal more details in the fourth quarter of 2023, and production is scheduled to start in 2024 at the brand’s Geely-owned plant in Wuhan, China, where the Eletre is already being manufactured. The Emeya will arrive in the US by Q4 2024, Lotus vice president and chief of commercial Mike Johnstone told InsideEVs.

Once production of the Emeya and the Eletre is in full swing, probably by 2025, the brand expects 30 percent of its total sales to be in the US, said Johnstone.
