Did you know that your Lotus Eletre has two charging options available? You can choose to charge it using a conventional wall plug or a dedicated charging station. However, when you're out and about, you can only use a charging station for public charging as a wall plug won't work. The speed at which your electric vehicle charges will depend on the type of charging station or EVSE you use, and the maximum charging capacity of your EV. You can find all the available charging options for your Lotus Eletre and the estimated time it takes to charge your battery fully from empty in the table below.
Charging an electric vehicle (EV) in Europe varies depending on the country you live in. Some European countries use 1-phase connections to the grid as their primary charging method, while others prefer 3-phase connections. The table below lists the available charging options for the Lotus Eletre, but keep in mind that certain charging modes may not be available in some countries. It is recommended that you contact local electric vehicle charging networks to determine which charging options are available in your area.

3-phase 16A (11 kW)
400V / 3x16A
3-phase 32A (22 kW)
400V / 3x32A
22 kW †
† = Limited by on-board charger, vehicle cannot charge faster.
Fast Charging (10 → 80%)
Fast charging is a vital component in maximizing the range of your electric vehicle, as it provides an optimal amount of range in the shortest possible time. However, it is important to note that once your EV reaches 80% state of charge (SoC), the charging speed will gradually decrease, making it rare for a standard fast charge to go beyond 80% SoC. The charging speed of your electric car is dependent on the charging station and the maximum charging power that your EV can handle. For those who own a Lotus Eletre, we have provided a detailed guide in the table below on how to quickly charge your electric vehicle.
Max. Power: maximum power provided by charge point
Avg. Power: average power provided by charge point over a session from 10% to 80%
Time: time needed to charge from 10% to 80%
Rate: average charging speed over a session from 10% to 80%
