Lotus Eletre Exterior
This is one of the sportiest Electric SUVs, the cuts and stance would remind you of the Lamborghini Urus. The active vents around the front bumper open up to cool your battery pack & motor also giving better aerodynamics to your vehicle and improving efficiency. The wheel size starts at 20 inches and goes up to 23 inches. The pop-out door handles also add to the aerodynamics. The sloping roof gives this car a coupe look with more vents around the rear pillar. The vents continue at the back bumper with a wing spoiler on the top and a deployable spoiler above the rear lights. The drag coefficient is 0.26 cd.
