490 kilometers is the official range of the Lotus Eletre S. But what is the real range? So how far will you get if you drive down the highway at 100 km/h (or 130 km/h)? We test that!
Of Lotus Eletre has a whopper of a battery: 109 kWh. The Eletre is certainly a car with impressive numbers. We tested the Eletre S with 603 hp and 710 Nm. It sprints to 100 km/h in 4.5 seconds and dominates the left lane of the autobahn with a top speed of 258 km/h.
For the consumption test, it is good to know that the Eletre S weighs no less than 2595 kilos and has winter tires. Those tires are also impressive: 275/40 R22 at the front and 315/35 R22 at the rear. You read that correctly: 22-inch winter tires!
The weather is quite nice for a winter test: 11 degrees during the day and 8 degrees Celsius in the evening. It is dry and the windsock next to the highway says there is quite a wind, but in the massive Lotus Eletre you hardly notice it. In the photos below you can read the average power consumption. The Eletre even makes a nice graph of it.
At 100 km/h, the Lotus Eletre S has an average power consumption of 26,2 kWh/100 km. If you drive a full battery with a usable capacity of 109 kWh completely empty, you will arrive 416 kilometer ver.
That is a downright high power consumption. The 544 hp Mercedes EQS SUV settles for in winter 22,4 kWh/100 km. Of Volvo XC40 Recharge is known for its great thirst and scores 23,0 kWh/100 km. But let's be honest: the Eletre is the superlative in all areas. Economy is not the top priority with a hyper SUV.
At 130 km/h, power consumption increases further. The Lotus Eletre consumes its large battery 35,9 kWh/100 km. The result is a range of 130 km/h 303 kilometer.
The EQS SUV produces 33.7 kWh/100 km and the electric XC40 scores 32.9 kWh/100 km. Once again, the Lotus Eletre is certainly not economical with energy.
Save on your car insurance with AutoBewust from Interpolis
You make your own choices regarding coverage.
This way you can put together the car insurance that suits you.
And you keep the premium low.
The Lotus Eletre S has a gigantic battery and that's a good thing, because it consumes more power than we're used to from other large SUVs. The result is a range of approximately 400 kilometers for those who can keep their right foot under control.
And that's easier said than done, because the Eletre is such a powerful and massive machine that you barely notice whether you're driving at 100 or 130 km/h - it's both peanuts. The on-board computer does notice the difference, because if you drive with the rest of the traffic after 7 p.m. in the evening, the cake is gone after 300 kilometers.
