Lotus is making waves not only with their new electric vehicles, like the Eletre SUV and Emeya sedan but also by rolling out their charging solutions. The aim? To be an all-electric brand by 2028.

In the mix is their supercharged 450 kW DC fast charger, already up and running in China and heading to Europe and the Middle East by Q2 2024. This power-packed charger is part of Lotus’ plan to ease range concerns and boost confidence in charging networks.

The star of the show is the Liquid-Cooled All-in-One DC Charger, zapping up to 450 kW for lightning-fast charging. Picture this: in just five minutes, the Eletre R can gain a solid 88.5 miles or 142 kilometers. Need a quick top-up? A 10% to 80% charge takes only 20 minutes.

Designed with “charge point operators, fleet providers, and dealerships” in mind, this system is a game-changer, especially for EVs rocking 800V charging hardware, like the Lotus Eletre. Get ready for a smoother ride into the electric future.

Lotus is making waves in the charging game with their cutting-edge solutions. One standout is the Liquid-Cooled Power Cabinet, a modular powerhouse tailored for spots like highway rest stops, ensuring swift charging and heightened efficiency. Boasting an impressive power output of up to 480 kW, it’s a game-changer.

But that’s not all. Enter the Liquid-Cooled Charging Unit, a nifty terminal that can juice up four vehicles simultaneously when paired with the Liquid-Cooled Power Cabinet. Pumping out a maximum current of 600 Amp, it’s a perfect fit for all types of electric vehicles, making the charging process a breeze.

Why the liquid-cool vibe? Lotus aims for simplicity and speed in their commercial charging solutions. They’re futureproofing with a 450 kW solution, taking a step beyond the competition like Electrify America’s 350 kW Hyper Fast Chargers and Tesla’s V4 Superchargers. Lotus plans to roll out this powerhouse once the infrastructure catches up, offering a seamless upgrade for customers without added hardware expenses.

Speaking of customers, Lotus has been making strides in the electric vehicle arena. From the 2019 Evija hypercar to the 2022 Eletre electric SUV, with deliveries already in motion in the UK, Europe, and China in 2023. The Lotus Emeya, unveiled in China earlier this year, adds to the roster as an electric hyper-GT set to challenge the likes of the Porsche Taycan.

While the road ahead for Lotus is far from their iconic Elises and Esprits, not to mention their racing legacy, the brand’s transition into a modern, electrified high-performance player looks promising under Geely’s wing. Let’s hope the legacy continues to thrive in this new era.
