Lotus confirms Eletre pricing and specs for Australia

Lotus Cars Australia has confirmed pricing and specs for the 2025 version of its all-electric Eletre SUV. It will be available in three trim levels, including a self-named variant, an S and an R. First customer deliveries of the 2024 model will land in the coming weeks.

Kicking off at $189,990 (Eletre), $229,990 (S) and $279,990 (R) – all plus on-roads – the updated range scores a price drop, as well as a raft of changes. 2024 buyers will also benefit from the cut to the cost of the new car.

The Eletre S gains the most from the updated model range, and receives a glass roof, comfort seat pack (5 seat) and Akoya White paint as standard from 2025 cars onwards. LIDAR autonomous driving hardware has also been removed.

It now finds its way into a Highway Assist Pack option, following feedback from Australian consumers who didn’t want to be paying for hardware they can’t use yet. For the base model, dual motor propulsion comes with a 112kW battery pack.

800W architecture is paired with a 22kW on board AC charger and support for up to 350kW DC fast charging. Production of that model will begin in Q3 of this year, with a 2024 delivery a possibility.

All Lotus Eletre variants feature full time all-wheel drive with intelligent torque distribution, with the base model and S variants offering 710Nm of torque via a single speed transmission. Both offer 450kW of power, and a 0-100km/h sprint time of 4.5 seconds.

The R variant has a two speed transmission for 675kW and 905Nm, capable of 0-100km/h in 2.95 seconds. Charging time via a DC fast charger is just 20 minutes, and the range is estimated to be 600km for the Eletre and S, and 490km for the R.

All variants feature multi-link front and rear suspension, dual-chamber air springs, and continuous damping. Kerb weight ranges from 2,490kg to 2,640kg, with a 611-litre boot in 4-seat spec, or 688-litres for the 5-seater.

With the rear seats folded, boot space grows to 1,532-litres, and there’s a 46-litre frunk. The Lotus Eletre has a 5-year or 150,000km warranty, with high voltage parts covered by an 8-year or 200,000km offering.
