Since any traffic in this sub-forum, are there any developments for down under?

Other than the email from Richard a few weeks back, nothing at all. I suspect down under deliveries have slipped by ~2-3+ months just like the UK ones.

I know first hand that Lotus Cars Australia 🇦🇺 get zero updates from HQ. They ask but get nothing in return, we will be lucky if we see a car in Aus this year. Unfortunately they may be built in October/November 2022 fron what I’ve been told recently, and it will be Jan/Feb 2023 till we see it. So when we resell it’s effectively a 2022 car.

#Lotus HQ for the ignorant….

Don't feel bad. It's not just Australia. Dealers in the U.S. aren't getting anything either right now. It's all quiet on the western front at the moment.

At this point I really don't care to hear any more promises. Just start delivering customer cars; even if it's just a few so we can get past this dead spot.

When I quizzed my Melbourne dealer he wasn't sure what constituted a "batch" (ref. the email from Richard), so everyone's in the dark about volumes and dates.

It does appear that there will be some Australian cars in the first "batch" run with the UK cars. How many, no one can say...
