Lotus Type 133, the debut is approaching. New spy photos from the tests at the Nurburgring


After debuting its electric SUV Eletre in 2022, Lotus is working on developing a coupé 4-door electric car currently known as the Type 133. The unveiling of this new model was held at the event. expected during 2023 and the car manufacturer is now concluding the development tests. A Type 133 forklift is a must. was intercepted again during a test session on the Nurburgring track.

Very important tests given that the curves of the German circuit are the ideal place to put the mechanics to the test and fine-tune the set-up of a new model, especially one with high performance like the Type 133. The forklift continues to have a camouflage, with the films hiding the details of the design. In any case, they can already be completed. see different things starting from a front that has some similarities with that of the electric SUV Eletre.

You can also see the LiDAR sensor very wellpresent on the roof which will allow & agrave; the car to have advanced functions; of driving assistance. At the rear, on the other hand, it seems that the Type 133 will be able to take off. count on a LED bar that crosses the entire tailgate. It should also be noted that the car does not have the classic rear-view mirrors. In fact, in their place we find cameras. It's a solution that improves aerodynamics.

The new spy photos don't show the interior, but thanks to past images already available, it's a solution that improves aerodynamics. we know that the passenger compartment will present; a setting very similar to that of the electric SUV. Therefore, we will find a large central display for the infotainment system and a thin horizontal screen for the instrumentation.

As for powertrains, the motors are expected to be shared with the electric SUV. This would mean being able to have powertrains with powers of 450 kW (612 HP) and 675 kW (918 HP). The performances, therefore, will be particularly high. On the Eletre SUV, Lotus uses a 112 kWh battery. To understand if also on the Type 133 it will be used the same battery. If this were the case, thanks to the greater aerodynamic efficiency and lower weight of the Type 133, the range should be even better than that of the SUV.

Therefore, all that remains is to wait for the final range. arrival of more news on the launch of this new electric car. After the Type 133, in 2025 it will be the turn of the; to the Type 134, a segment D SUV. an electric sports car that Lotus calls, for the moment, Type 135.
