The launch of the Lotus Eletre has sent the motoring world into a frenzy, with many being unable to comprehend the fact that Lotus have built an SUV – so much for ‘Simplify and add lightness’.
In the aftermath of its reveal, many have been drawing comparisons between it and other cars. Normally, if a motoring journalist points out a similarity between cars I rarely see it, I cannot make the connections, but with the Eletre I feel I am making up for it.
Here’s some of the comparisons I’ve made, going from the blatantly obvious to the nuanced to the ‘you need to get your eyes tested’ (which I probably do).
Front – Lamborghini Urus
Wheels – Hyundai IONIQ 5
Side Profile – Jaguar I-Pace
Rear – Renault Megane E-Tech
This is the most tentative prediction as the more I think about it, the less certain I am. I think the rear has some similarities with the Renault, despite the large logo on the rear and the lack of cutouts. But the numberplate area is quite similar and as it’s so tenuous I don’t think it will have an impact.
What cars do you see in other cars (not just the Eletre)?
