As the world's first Hyper SUV, the Lotus Eletre delivers exceptional performance: 0 – 60 in under 3 seconds, a top speed of 160mph and a range of over 370 miles. And it’s a Lotus. And it’s electric.
Described by the Managing Director of Lotus Cars as “a momentous point in our history”, the launch of the Eletre required Blueprint to create a global broadcast as hyper as the car itself.
And so “Eletre: Carved By Air” was born: a one-hour live broadcast from the iconic Television Centre in West London. Featuring a cast of 50 people and 20 Lotus models from throughout history, the show revealed 3 Eletres to the world for the very first time.
With a live audience of 300 journalists and influencers, we broadcast around the world onLotuscars.com, YouTube and into China. The show had it all: drama, entertainment, celebrity guests... and lots of cars.
Below are just some of the highlights:

Here is how the Blueprint team pulled the whole production together.
