This is everyone. See the first SUV from Lotus. It is also Norfolk’s second EV after Evaya. Patent images submitted by Wuhan Lotus Cars Co., Ltd are published by IP Australia, so trust them to be genuine. The Type 132, which is about the same size as the Porsche Cayenne, shows an interesting design before its official debut on March 29th.

Where should I start? Well, the electric SUV has an air duct on the front hood as part of a comprehensive aero package that also includes an active flap on the lower air intake. The roof-mounted LiDAR above the windshield stands out, and you’ll have to notice that Lotus is replacing traditional side mirrors with cameras. However, these are not legal in every country in the world. In other words, the EV will also be equipped with a conventional glass mirror.

You may have noticed that the charging port is attached to the left front fender and the high riding lotus has an electronic pop outdoor handle. Some design clues, such as the shape of the alloy wheels and headlights, have already been revealed in the teaser. In addition, the full-width LED light bar on the back is previewed, which dares to look like an Audi in these patented images.

As we are behind, we may have found a “floating” two-piece roof spoiler adjacent to something that looks like another LiDAR. The tailgate’s active spoiler was previewed by Lotus, but it doesn’t stick out here. For vehicles on a dedicated EV platform, the rear overhang is large and probably longer than an ICE-equipped SUV of the same size.

Electric vehicles made in China will be mounted on a platform developed to accommodate battery packs up to 120kWh. The 800V technology implementation has been converted to ultra-fast charging, and the interior hosts a tilted touch screen for infotainment. One of the patented images shows the underside of a completely closed vehicle to improve airflow.

Its wheelbase will measure somewhere between 2889 and 3100 millimeters (113.7 to 122 inches), and it’s safe to assume that it’s the heaviest lotus in history. Evaya’s electric hypercar already represents a big starting point in that regard, tilting the scale at about 3,700 pounds (1,680 kilograms).

It should be packed with about 600-700 horsepower, thanks to a dual electric motor that allows for an all-wheel drive setup. In poker, the SUV should reach 62mph at 100km / h in about 3 seconds from a standstill.

You can see what is happening at the end of the month. Sales may begin in late 2022 or early next year. Production will take place at the new Wuhan plant. Yes, That Wuhan …
