The brakes included with the 2014 Lotus Esprit go beyond the typical functionality of stopping the sports coupe: they also help regenerate the electric motor (if the hybrid option is chosen). This unique system prevents the need to charge the motor with an external power source. The reuse of this energy also helps reduce the wear on critical braking components.
Eco-boost mode is another option available with the Lotus Esprit. When engaged, this mode will utilize the battery engine to provide extra horsepower to the engine. This is an innovative option that both increases speed and decreases fuel consumption. To save resources (or to recharge the electric motor while driving) the mode can be switched off at any time.
The digital dashboard on the Lotus Esprit presents all of the information drivers need in a modern and stylish manner. Drivers can utilize its navigation system while exploring new locations. If something requires attention, the screen will be able to provide critical details. The speedometer displays the current speed using both a vibrant display and a traditional, yet stylish, dial. Just below the speed, drivers will also find a compass showing their current direction; a perfect addition for the navigation system.
