Lotus has confirmed the name of its long-anticipated electric sedan, the Emeya. This comes as part of the company's announcement that the battery-powered four-door will make its world debut on September 7, following the Eletre SUV as the company's second EV.




Not much has been revealed about the Emeya, though it's expected to share a large amount of its components with the existing Eletre crossover. This means most trim levels will be powered by a dual-motor AWD setup, powered by a 112 kWh battery pack to create 603 hp and 524 lb-ft of torque. In the Eletre, this powertrain allows for up to 373 miles of range. The Emeya could also gain a high-performance model called the Emeya R, which is rumored to have as much as 905 hp and 726 lb-ft of torque, along with a 0-60 mph time of just under 3 seconds.


Much like the Eletre, the Emeya sacrifices Lotus's lightweight sports car image in favor of the booming electric luxury segment. In fact, this is the company's first sedan since it partnered with Opel and Vauxhall in the 1990s to create the blisteringly fast Lotus Carlton. The company's return to the sedan body style will see it compete with the Tesla Model S, Porsche Taycan, and Mercedes EQS when it goes on sale sometime in 2024.
