If it’s a SUV, the name is Eew.

Most of the articles that come up if you search "Geely Lotus" are really the same article with the words thrown into a blender, but this one from The Times seems a bit more definitive. It's The Times, after all.

Hopefully the new small-car platform isn't too far behind.

Looks like it's going to be their hybrid supercar. - It had better be alot more than just a hybrid Evora (See 414E) if it's going to be 1M Euros.
