Lotus Envya electric saloon caught winter testing in Mongolia

The next Lotus electric car has been spotted alongside the Lotus Eletre in a remote location.

Lotus has it clear at this point in the automotive sector and its commitment under the tutelage of Chinese group Geely is to offer 100% electric premium vehicles.

The first car to be launched under this paradigm will be the Lotus Eletre, a stunning 100 per cent electric SUV with excellent performance and a striking design. Expectations for the Lotus Eletre are very high following its official unveiling.

The next one will be the Lotus Envya, in this case we are in front of a representative sedan, again a new segment for Lotus which we are seeing in this electric era how it is monopolising segments never before “touched” by the brand, leaving more aside its sports car DNA.

We have very little information about the Lotus Envya, as the vehicle is in an early stage of development, with a launch planned for sometime in 2025.

However, thanks to some photos taken in a remote part of the world (Mongolia), we have been able to access the first pictures of the car probably performing the demanding winter tests.

Of course, it was fully camouflaged to prevent the final design from being revealed prematurely. The Envya was accompanied by the camouflaged Lotus Eletre, although we already know a lot about the latter after its unveiling.

One of the spy photos of the Lotus Envya shows the interior, which gives us an important piece of information, and that is that it will be a 2 + 2-seater saloon, meaning that the fifth central seat in the rear seats will not exist, thus giving more prominence to the side seats.

In the same way that Lotus did with the Eletre, the Lotus Envya, despite being a large saloon, will be a vehicle with pure sports performance. Rumours point to three electric motors and a power output in excess of 1,000 hp. The range is estimated to be around 500 kilometres.
