Lotus has some big plans over the next few years, starting with the introduction of its first SUV this spring. The electric SUV will be followed by an electric four-door coupe, codenamed Type 133 and another smaller electric SUV, codenamed Type 134. Lotus is also not forgetting about a sports car, since a fully electric sports car, codenamed Type 135, which is slated to arrive by 2026.
While 2026 is quite a few years away, Lotus has released a teaser of the Type 135. We don’t have a lot of details yet, but it will be based on a new E-Sports platform and slot in below the Evija hypercar in the lineup. Single and dual-motor versions are expected with two different battery pack options: 66.4 kWh and 99.6 kWh battery packs. It could have a driving range up to 450 miles on a single charge.
“Last year we committed Lotus to a pure electric future, and in the first month of this year we announce another significant step on that journey. In the coming months we will be unveiling the Type 132, an all-new and all-electric Lotus SUV and we’ve confirmed three more EVs are on the way,” stated Matt Windle, Managing Director, Lotus Cars.
