NIO, Lotus to co-develop battery standards, charging, and swaps

NIO, Lotus to co-develop battery standards, charging, and swaps

Two big names in EVs announced a new strategic cooperation during the 2024 Beijing International Auto Show. Lotus Technology and NIO detailed plans to co-develop EV charging and battery swap technologies alongside wishes to create a unified battery standard system. NIO Inc. ($NIO) may be best known for its premium EVs and its recent venture into smartphones, but it’s important to note that the Chinese automaker is the global leader in EV battery swap stations. As of October 2023, NIO has successfully completed over 30 million battery swaps around the world, proving the technology is a viable alternative to standard plug-in and charge EV practices. Like NIO, Wuhan Lotus Technology Co., Ltd., better known as Lotus ($LOT), is another name with deep ties to China. It has been majority-owned by Geely Holding since 2017. As a result, Lotus has vowed to go all-electric and is off to an impressive start. To date, the supercar developer has delivered three BEV models: The Emeya, Evija, and Eletre SUV, which just opened up sales in North America. In …

Lotus opens Eletre orders in North America and shares pricing

Lotus opens Eletre orders in North America and shares pricing

Beginning today, customers in North America can customize and order the Eletre, a new hyper SUV from Lotus long promised as part of the sports car developer’s journey to go 100% electric. We’ve also learned when those initial Eletre customers can expect to take delivery and how much Lotus is charging in pricing the SUV’s two variants. In April 2021, Geely-owned hypercar developer Lotus laid out a strategic plan to strictly produce electric vehicles by 2028, beginning with an E-segment SUV called “Type 132” in 2022. Its most recent financial report detailed steady growth, but there’s still plenty of ceiling left in its segment, In March 2022, we learned that the type 132 was officially called the Eletre alongside several of the hyper SUV’s targeted specs, including range, top speed, and charging times, but no pricing yet. With BEV production now underway at a new $1.2 billion factory in China, Lotus has continued to tout the performance of the Eletre alongside two additional models—the Evija and the Emeya. All three models are now making their way to …

Lotus SPAC merger to list under ‘LOT’ stock ticker this week

Lotus SPAC merger to list under ‘LOT’ stock ticker this week

Lotus Technology is closing on an approved merger with Special Purpose Acquisition Company (SPAC) L Catterton Asia Acquisition Corp, setting the stage for a debut on the Nasdaq this week under the stock ticker symbol “LOT.” It’s just over a year since we first caught wind of Lotus’ plans to go public on the US stock market via a SPAC merger – a once popular method that has since cooled down. SPAC mergers enable a publicly traded company to be created to merge with an existing company. In the case of Lotus Technology, its SPAC is L Catterton Asia Acquisition Corp ($LCAA) – a blank check company explicitly incorporated for the merger to enable high-growth consumer tech across Asia. Lotus is currently owned by Zhejiang Geely Holding Group in China, where its electric hypercars are also built. During the January 2023 announcement, we learned Lotus expected to continue operations under its “Lotus Technology” moniker, with the intention to eventually trade on the Nasdaq exchange under the stock ticker “LOT.” This week, Lotus shared a progress update on …

Still, as the two continue to make more and more public appearances together, the actress has made her biggest declaration of love yet: an Instagram hard launch of course. TRAILER: The White Lotus season two On Tuesday, Meghann took to Instagram and shared a sweet photo alongside Leo, in which they are walking side by side with their arms around each other, strolling through Boston’s North End neighborhood, which is considered the city’s Little Italy, and its oldest residential community. She kept her caption simple, just the emojis for a smile, pizza, and blue heart, but that didn’t stop fans from swiftly taking …
