In a momentous event that took place in the heart of New York City, Lotus unveiled Emeya, its first four-door hyper-GT. This groundbreaking debut signals Lotus’ entrance into the luxury electric vehicle market, combining its illustrious 75-year history of engineering and design expertise with cutting-edge technologies. The result? A luxury electric vehicle that not only embodies the spirit of Lotus but also pushes the boundaries of what an electric car can be.
What makes Emeya stand out from the electric vehicle crowd is its seamless integration of advanced technology and design, emphasizing an exhilarating driving experience. The car showcases a blend of active aerodynamic features, including the pioneering active front grille, rear diffuser, and rear spoiler. These innovations, combined with Lotus’ ‘hyperstance’ concept, ensure superior stability and handling, setting a new standard for excellence in the GT segment.
Emeya’s electronically controlled air suspension system is no less than cutting-edge wizardry. With onboard sensors that “feel” the road a thousand times a second, the vehicle automatically adjusts itself to provide an unrivaled smooth ride. This is driving comfort redefined.
The top-spec Emeya boasts Lotus’ high-power dual motor setup, delivering blistering speed with a top speed of over 155 mph (250 km/h) and acceleration from 0 to 62 mph (0-100 km/h) in under 2.8 seconds. It’s safe to say that Emeya is one of the fastest electric GTs globally, making it a true performance powerhouse.
Lotus understands that the future of electric vehicles hinges on efficient charging. Emeya does not disappoint, as it can add up to 93 miles (150 km) of range with just five minutes of charging using a 350 kW DC fast charger. Furthermore, it can boost its range up to 80% in just 18 minutes. With Emeya, you won’t be left waiting for hours at a charging station.
Emeya is not just about speed and performance; it’s also about sustainability. The vehicle incorporates advanced sustainable materials, sourced responsibly to minimize its carbon footprint. These materials include a luxury thread made from repurposed fashion industry fibers, PVD aluminum, Alcantara, Nappa leather, and Ultrafabrics PU.
To ensure that every occupant enjoys an unparalleled music experience, Emeya is equipped with a state-of-the-art audio system developed in collaboration with KEF. This system features KEF’s award-winning Uni-Q speaker design, a Uni-Core space-saving subwoofer enclosure, and Dolby Atmos-enabled 3D surround sound. It’s an auditory experience like no other, enhancing the pleasure of driving. Production is slated to begin in 2024, and it marks a bold step into the future of electric driving.
To showcase Emeya and its rich heritage, Lotus hosted a three-day immersive brand experience at Studio Emeya, occupying four stories of a Manhattan parking lot. Attendees had an exclusive look at Emeya’s creation process, the driving experience it offers, and the emotion it evokes. The event culminated with an immersive car reveal and a rooftop party featuring DJ and radio presenter Benji B. For those eager to experience the event for themselves, Studio Emeya will be open to the public for one day only tomorrow, September 9th.
