I was here at 7am so managed to get pics before it got too busy. On stand is Evija (silver), Eletre (silver), Emira (Nimbus), Emira GT4 (yellow/grey). Opposite in First Glance are two more Emiras (Magma, Hethel) and a Seneca one is coming later. There’s another Eletre (yellow) in Electric Avenue. No Dark Verdant or Shadow Grey sadly.

I’ve sat in all the Emiras, had a good look around inside and out and had long chats with Lotus folks.

Customer Care are here and can give a rough indication of your revised delivery date based on latest supply chain info.

Dealer demo cars are due late July. They might get a handful of customer cars delivered in July but most of the previous June batch are into Aug. Mine (#20 deposit) is delayed +6 weeks from June into August. Some cars are delayed a bit less, some a bit more. Autos are delayed “a lot” but they can’t say by how much yet.

If Silver wheels are an issue, would you be so kind as to ask if there is a possibility to swap to another colour. I imagine that's a no as they don't have excess wheels in any colour, but be good to know what the main delay components are and if there is possibility to swap spec for earlier delivery or its a case of you just have to wait

Thanks for the pics Tom, looking forward to seeing them tomorrow! Just caught the blue car & a GT4 Emira going up the hill on the livestream.

I would guess the Magma, Yellow and Seneca cars might be the same ones journalists drove a few weeks ago now? So may not be final spec still.

@TomE - could you possibly ask them when they "finally" intend to send out the email about the planned Factory PPF etc - with all the delays surely they now have more time to offer things like this, but if they don't then we need to know sooner rather than later to make alternative arrangements. I had emailed them several times, but got fed up with the same stock answer of we don't know yet. Thank you, and thanks for all the updates so far.

Scott says they are going to offer PPF for factory collection. They’ve just found a local supplier who can handle the volume, so it will be done by a specialist rather than in-house by Lotus.

Dealer and home delivery people will have to make own arrangements. Most dealers have a local specialist they use.

Thanks Tom, much appreciated - perfect for me, as will be factory collection, as only just down the road - do we know who the local supplier is?
