Lotus partners with Bosch and Mobilize to expand charging access for customers in Europe

LONDON: Lotus is expanding its electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure through partnerships with Bosch and Mobilize Power Solutions, aiming to enhance the charging experience for owners of its electric hyper-SUV, Eletre, and upcoming hyper-GT, Emeya.

Lotus owners will have access to over 600,000 public charging stations across 30 European countries, including the UK, Germany, and France, via the Bosch charging network.

Lotus plans to further expand its charging network by collaborating with additional network operators.

The charging process is made easy for Lotus drivers, who can access the network using the Lotus Charging Card and manage their charging history, costs, and vehicle battery status through the Lotus Cars smartphone app.


Lotus vehicles offer rapid charge times, with a 350kW DC fast-charger allowing for a 120km range increase in just five minutes of charging, and an 80% battery charge in 20 minutes.

The Geely-owned sports car maker is also teaming up with Mobilize Power Solutions to promote home charging as the primary option for owners.

An all-inclusive package, priced from £1,199 including VAT, includes the supply and installation of a charging point, with the option to use solar energy.

The move aims to address the challenge of insufficient charging infrastructure, a significant barrier to EV adoption.


In addition to the charging partnerships, Lotus recently unveiled its own EV charging solutions, including a 450kW DC charger, a power cabinet, and a modular unit capable of charging up to four vehicles at the same time.

Lotus delivered its Eletre hyper-SUV to customers in 2023 and plans to introduce the Emeya hyper-GT to European customers in the second half of 2024.
