Here's what is learnt about the Lotus crossover so far: it will be integrated in China, its name will begin with "E" (Perhaps the Elope? Who knows?) and it will have emphasis on efficiency by being the lightest and fastest in its segment. Initially, the CUV will launch in China before ultimately expanding to Europe and Japan, but there is still no word regarding whether clients in the U.S. will ever have access to this vehicle. It would be tough to think of Lotus not bringing a crossover to among the largest markets for crossovers and SUVs, but it would require additional engineering (read: weight) to fulfill U.S. vehicle guidelines.
