Since taking Lotus into its pocket, Geely has quickly started the research and development of new cars. After nearly two years of pre-development preparations, foreign media have officially exposed the chassis test vehicle of the Lotus SUV. Judging from the attitude of the test car, it is clear that this time after the return of Lotus, it will form its first product with a high-performance Coupe SUV.
The Lotus SUV test vehicle currently being tested is modified based on the body of the Lynk & Co 01. Compared with the Lynk & Co 01, it can be seen that the test vehicle has significantly increased the wheelbase and the size of the wheel mouth. At the same time, the body The width and wheelbase of the car have also been revised accordingly. The ground clearance of the whole vehicle has also become lower, and the low-lying high-performance range is undoubtedly revealed.
It is worth noting that the front windshield of the test car is clearly pasted with the words “high voltage danger”, and at the same time, there are no corresponding items such as exhaust pipes at the rear of the vehicle. Instead, you can vaguely see the battery pack hanging under the chassis. It can be inferred that the high-performance SUV of Lotus is likely to be an electric vehicle. The possibility of a plug-in hybrid version is not ruled out in the future.
According to previous reports, the brand-new Lotus SUV will use the Porsche Cayenne as the performance benchmark, and meet and exceed the standards of the Cayenne as much as possible in terms of craftsmanship and performance. In terms of the market, it is expected that the new car will officially debut in 2a020.
