The first batch of AU cars have already been built and shipped from UK. NA cars don’t start build until Q1-23.


Tom did you hear some info about cars to Middle East (EUA, Kuwait , bahrein…)

I haven’t heard anything recently.

Moving this to a new thread so others can add any info they’ve got about deliveries for GCC states and other Middle East countries.

I was told a month or so ago that GCC cars went through Lotus QC and were shipping out (China was the first big batch, then AUS, GCC, and then North America). My Dubai contacts said they were told their cars were completed on Jan 18th, arriving in UAE late February, then go through their own QC at the dealers, and finally customer deliveries in early March.

I think the ship is due to dock 27/28 Feb and then hand over on or around 9thMarch. Mine is also on the same ship

Next delivery is about 3 weeks later and then first automatic cars are due in May. If you order today the car will be built May for a June/July delivery

Sorry I was wrong. Ship is running about 4/5 days late so should dock around the 5th.

This lines up with what I've heard as well. Would be an interesting car to see on the roads here

hello
did anyone order i4? they said it might be delivered at Aug/Sept but the funny thing the dealer said they might charge me extra 10% of the car price because it will be 2024 model even tho im waiting 18 months and i shouldn't handle the shortage with all this delay
can I know how much did they charge u in GCC because the price is much higher than UK
and what is after the sell any free service and the warranty how many years
