What We Know So Far



Sports car specialist Lotus is branching out into the luxury electric sedan segment with the upcoming 2025 Envya four-door. Expected to challenge other sporty EV sedans such as the Audi e-tron GT and the Porsche Taycan, the Envya is expected to offer an electric powertrain with enough thrust to hit 60 mph in the 3.0-second range . We’re confident that Lotus can leverage its pedigree to deliver phenomenal chassis tuning and handling that will make the Envya very fun to drive. To be competitive, the slinky sedan would have to offer a driving range of at least 250 miles per charge. Our spy photos suggest that the upcoming four-door EV will have a stylish look, but we haven’t seen a glimpse of its interior yet. When we finally find out more about the 2025 Lotus Envya, we’ll update this story with details.

What’s new for 2025?

The Envya will be an all-new model for Lotus when it reaches production, likely as a 2025 model. It will sit alongside the electric Eletre crossover in what will be a new range for Lotus, a brand known for going many years without a new product.

Prices and which one to buy


$80,000 (estimated)


$90,000 (estimated)


$100,000 (estimated)

We assume the Envya will be offered in a similar range of trims to the Eletre SUV, with an entry-level base model, a sportier S variant, and then a performance-oriented R version. If the Envya has the same powerplant as the Eletre, the R model could come with as much as 906 horsepower.
