EVx 2024: Lotus Eletre now in Akoya White, Cinnabar Red – 905 hp ‘hyper SUV’ EV does 0-100 in 2.95 secs!

The paultan.org Electric Vehicle Expo (EVx) is back, and the 2024 edition will be held from July 20-21 at the Setia City Convention Centre (SCCC). The third edition of the premier consumer EV showcase – co-sponsored by Carro, Gentari, RHB and JuiceUp – is the place to be for all things EV, from cars to charging equipment.

Lotus Cars Malaysia (LCM) will be participating in EVx and you can get up close and personal with the Lotus Eletre at the show. The Eletre is one of the most striking EVs on the road, with its combination of size and bold features. Many of the over 100 examples on Malaysian roads are in the model’s signature Solar Yellow, but there are also some in Stellar Black, Galloway Green, Blossom Grey and Kaimu Grey. Now, LCM is bringing in Akoya White and Cinnabar Red options, and the latter looks great.

There’s more than enough performance to back up the Eletre’s hyper SUV looks. The Eletre S makes 605 hp and 710 Nm of torque from its two motors, getting from 0-100 km/h in 4.5 seconds, while the Eletre R’s 905 hp and 985 Nm propels it to 100 km/h in just 2.95 seconds. An 112 kWh battery offers a WLTP-rated range of 600 km for the RM698,000 S and 490 km for the RM838,000 R. You can experience the performance at EVx.

Besides Lotus, the likes of Mercedes-Benz, BMW, MINI, smart, Hyundai, Kia, BYD, Chery and MG are set to showcase their all-electric offerings at EVx, along with the likes of Kineta and Trapo.
