The powertrain of the EV battery packs with capacities ranging from 92 to 120 kWh. It is being guessed that some models may come as performance-oriented cars with an ability to touch the speed of 100 kmph under 3 seconds. The British automaker has not revealed the range that the new electric crossover will offer. 

Lotus has also revealed the sketch of its first electric sports car after it got into a partnership with battery cell company Britishvolt. Both the companies will co-develop a new battery package that will power the next-generation electric sports car from Lotus. 

Last year, the company ended the production of its internal combustion engine vehicles namely Elise, Exige and Evora with a goal to focus on electrification. These three models combined represented almost half of the total production of the company in its 73-year history.
