Lotus Type 132 Electric Crossover To Debut On March 29th

The crossover era is quickly approaching for Lotus as the company has announced the Type 132 will be unveiled on March 29th.

Besides confirming the date, Lotus released a slew of new teasers that show the exterior, interior, and powertrain.

Starting outside, we can see the Type 132 will have slender LED lighting units and aerodynamically optimized wheels with carbon fiber accents. The model also appears to have digital side mirrors and Lotus-branded brake calipers.

Moving inside the cabin, there’s a digital instrument cluster and a sport steering wheel with contrast stitching. We can also see illuminated switchgear and paddles that apparently change the selected drive mode. Previous teasers have also shown a floating infotainment system and an “immersive start-up sequence of multiple screens, sounds and lights.”

Last but not least, the video gives us a look at the crossover’s electric powertrain. Lotus has been coy on specifics, but previously confirmed their upcoming electric vehicles will feature 800-volt technology and battery packs with capacities ranging from 92-120 kWh. They’ll also offer impressive performance as some models will be able to accelerate from 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in less than three seconds.

We’ll learn more next month, but the Type 132 will ride on Lotus’ Premium architecture which supports C- to E-segment vehicles with wheelbases spanning 113.7 to 122 inches (2,889 to 3,100 mm). The platform will be used to underpin a variety of different models including a four-door coupe in 2023, a smaller crossover in 2025, and a sports car in 2026.
