Unrivalled in the million-dollar class? The real Lutz EMEYA R+.


Speaking of Lotus, who do you think of first? Is it the light and agile Elise or the more supercar-like Evora? With the advent of the electrification era, the roar of the engine has gone, and now we have Lotus’ new electric supercar——EMEYA, according to the information currently available, the new car will be put into production next year. EMEYA R+ is a high-performance version of this car. Not long ago, it achieved good lap times in the Zhejiang competition. Let’s take a look at this car next.

As a brand new model of Lotus in the new era, EMEYA adopts the latest appearance design concept of the Lotus family, and the overall shape is also relatively sharp. Although the acceleration performance of this car has entered the 2-second club, its appearance is not particularly exaggerated compared with many supercars, as it accelerates from 0-100km/h in only 2.8 seconds. However, the double L-shaped daytime running lights in front of the car are quite recognizable. This is a relatively unique design of EMEYA. The front grille of the new car is still equipped with the same deformable hexagonal active grille as ELETRE. In addition, the lower surround of this car is also equipped with an active air dam to further improve aerodynamic performance. At the same time, this car is the same as ELETRE. The liftable front lidar is also located above the roof.

Coming to the side, EMEYA adopts a fastback coupe body shape. In terms of body size, the length, width and height of the new car are 5139/2005/1464mm respectively, and the wheelbase is 3069mm. Such dimensions allow EMEYA to successfully join the ranks of Hyper GT electric supercars.

Coming to the rear of the car, EMEYA adopts a through-type taillight shape, which looks more recognizable. It also has an active rear spoiler and diffuser. When the spoiler is raised, it can provide the vehicle with a maximum of 215 kilograms of downforce. At the same time, EMEYA can also be equipped with optional accessories such as a carbon fiber roof and carbon ceramic brake discs to further enhance the sporty feel of the vehicle. In the details, we can also see that the car is equipped with electronic rearview mirrors, a new technology that was just allowed to be used on production cars in July this year.

In terms of interior, Lotus EMEYA (Panoramic car viewing) uses a lot of carbon fiber elements to embellish it, which looks more like a fighting atmosphere. At the same time, the interior of the car is also covered with materials including Alcantara, Nappa leather, and microfiber, showing a strong texture. In terms of audio, the car is equipped with an audio system created by the British audio brand KEF, with high configuration.

The steering wheel of the new car has a sportier shape, but the materials and feel are more luxurious. As the R+ model with the highest performance in the series, the editor believes that replacing the steering wheel with a more friction-resistant leather or microfiber material coupled with a carbon fiber trim will create a more combat atmosphere. In addition, the shift paddles behind the steering wheel of traditional fuel vehicles are replaced by energy recovery intensity settings on the left and driving mode switching paddles on the right.

EMEYA's central control screen uses the same screen shape as ELETRE. In addition, EMEYA is equipped with a road noise reduction system (RNC), which can monitor the movement status of tires and suspension systems and generate anti-phase acoustic signals through speakers to offset acoustic interference. Drivers create an in-car environment that is free from external interference.

In terms of seats, the EYEMA R+ model is made of perforated + suede material. The seat shape is mainly sporty, and it looks quite strong in combat atmosphere. Like many GT supercar models, the EYEMA also adopts an independent two-seat configuration in the rear row. The rear row has an independent touch screen and a central armrest, which also provides better care for rear passengers.

In terms of power, Lotus EMEYA will be equipped with dual motors. The front motor has a maximum power of 225 kilowatts and the rear motor has a maximum power of 450 kilowatts. Matched with a two-speed gearbox, the top speed can reach 256km/h and the 0-100km/h acceleration time is only It takes 2.78 seconds. As for the battery life, EMEYA’s battery pack capacity is 102kWh, and the CLTC cruising range is up to 600km. In addition, the new car will also be equipped with an air suspension system. In terms of energy replenishment, EMEYA supports 800V fast charging. Using 350kW fast charging can increase the battery life by 180km in 5 minutes, and can replenish energy from 10% to 80% in 15 minutes.

Editor's comments:

After entering the electric car era, judging from the sale price of Lotus ELETRE, the price of EMEYA should also be around one million. It should be said that this price is not high for a high-performance supercar with explosive performance, especially when compared with many high-performance supercars in the gasoline era. So will a car with outstanding performance like this be your cup of tea?
