The Australian Government has accidentally leaked design images of the new Lotus SUV and it’s definitely got the internet talking.
The Australian Government’s trademark office (IP Australia) leaked the technical illustrations for the upcoming vehicle – code named Type 132 – and it leaves very little to imagination: the shapes, angles and proportions are clear.
While the leak is definitely a contender for ‘blunder of the year’ award, that’s not what’s on everyone’s mind.
The front end looks vaguely Dodge Challenger-esque but the side profile and especially the rear section overwhelmingly looks like it was designed by someone with the Lamborghini Urus in mind.
We don’t know anything about power and performance yet, but we do know that it’s going to be built in China, and it is going to be powered by electricity, like every other Lotus in the future.
Speaking of which, Lotus will also build another, slightly smaller SUV along with a new sportscar developed in partnership with Alpine.
Now we just have to wait for the Australian Government to leak these two vehicles, too.
