Spy Shots of New Lotus Electric Sedan TYPE 133 Released
Recently, overseas media obtained a group of spy shots of the upcoming new Lotus all-electric sedan for road testing. The new car, codenamed TYPE 133, is positioned as a mid-size to full-size sedan and will continue the brand’s new design language with the letter “E” as the prefix for naming. It is reported that the new car will make its debut at the end of 2023 and be on the market within 2024.
The exterior design of the new Lotus electric sedan will maintain the brand’s family design concept. The front of the car has split-dual headlights, with the upper section featuring narrow LED daytime running lights and the lower section integrating with the grille. The front bumper also has a variable hexagon active aerodynamic device, which continues from ELETRE, the brand’s previous electric vehicle.
The side of the car features a sleek coupe-style body with a slender overall design. The front and rear sides of the car have large fenders that are paired with large size spoke wheels and multi-piston brake calipers.
At the rear of the car, the tail lights in the test shots are stand-ins, but based on the overall design of the car, the production version will have a unified tail light design, which will give it unique recognition. Furthermore, the rear bumper design is more aggressive, with a multi-layered structure and a large size rear diffuser, which enhances the three-dimensional sense of the car’s tail.
In terms of the power system, based on the previous model ELETRE’s configuration, it is expected that TYPE 133 will have the same power system.There will be a dual-motor four-wheel drive version with a maximum power of up to 900 horsepower and an acceleration time of less than 3 seconds from 0 to 100 km/h. In the future, it is expected that the new car will compete with sports cars such as Porsche Taycan and Audi e-tron GT.
