The new Lotus Emeya is “one of the fastest electric GT cars in the world,” the automaker said during its unveiling Thursday.
The large sedan is the second full-electric Lotus after the Eletre SUV to be launched as part of its so-called Lifestyle range. The sedan will build the car alongside the Eletre at parent Geely's factory in Wuhan, China.
Lotus describes the Emeya as its flagship car, saying it will sit above Eletre.
Lotus said the top-of-the-line, 905-hp Emeya with dual electric motors will accelerate from 0 to 100 kph (62mph) in 2.8 seconds. The performance matches the Porsche Taycan Turbo S. It also puts the Emeya close to the Tesla Model S Plaid, which the U.S. EV maker claims can reach that speed in 2 seconds.
