Well the naysayers will hate the car - but this looks like it’s going to secure a very bright future for Lotus. Can’t wait to see some cars in the flesh.

Well it needs to do well for Lotus for the next couple of years or so. And much will depend on the actual launch price. 

Also, unlike the launch of the Emira (looked to be 1 blue car that all reviewers got to see), there seem to be a range of colours of Eletre's to pick from at the moment?

Did I read that the Wuhan factory can be geared up to produce 150000 cars a year? That’s 30 years in Emira production numbers 👴🏻If so, not really surprised they already have a few out there.

Yes I read that as well, although there was also mention of 100,000 per year from the total capacity of 150,000 but that may cover other Lotus models when they are announced etc, also don't know what else the factory could be used to build. eg other Geely products.

With say 100,000 per year, it will have to be considered a good value product, don't  expect Lambo make that many Urus pa....

Looks good with conventional door mirrors.

Agree the small ones look like the little things I bought for the quad bike. and very expensive when they get broken.

I think the target volume is 50,000 per year for Eletre.  The other capacity is for Type 133 and Type 134, which I think will be similar numbers.  I guess they may be using it to build other Geely stuff before Type 133/134 start, or the capacity ramp up may be adding shifts rather than physical expansion.

Green and yellow look the best colours on it for me. I think every Lotus car is going to make a splash in this launch cycle. They are looking like strong sellers.

I suspect the 'Lotus wave' will become a classic car only situation from this generation. The same thing happened to Alfa in the 00's. A shame because it's near guaranteed in the Lotus world to get a friendly response.

At launch, there was a white (or silver) Eletre with a red leather interior (see 9:59-10:03 on the vid above). Has anyone found/seen pics of that interior? I'd love to see what it looks like with some coloured leather in there!

There is still something that does not look right about the rear view look on the yellow one. I am not sure if the light bar should have been slightly bowed? Maybe it’s just me. 

All we know is that when they stop making this, we will be properly, properly sad.Jeremy Clarkson on the Esprit.
