Just letting everyone know I ordered my fe on august the 7th and have just had a email saying I won’t get mine until spring 2023.
Shame as I was hoping for a Christmas present but will be worth the wait u less I get bored and impatient 🤣👌🏽

I had the email too. Ordered first week of Jan 2022, and have a 'scheduled to be completed by summer 2023' date.

Yep, received the same email - Reservation Deposit the paid on 8th Nov (FE V6 manual) 2021, delivery Spring 2023.

Interesting to see that someone who paid their deposit on 26th July have theirs delivered nest spring, which is quite the wait.

Looks like the i4 FE builds could be being dovetailed into the overall schedule now, based on first deposit date.

8th July (Goodwood Thursday) first deposit. 2nd deposit made and config link completed 12th April.

Just had an email from Lotus confirming that my specification will be locked on 1st July for November build and December delivery 🙂

It looks like first i4 FE deliveries are starting in December and hence post Goodwood V6 FE deposits are getting spread out into 2023.

I placed my 1st deposit on July 12th. Paid my 2nd deposit mid April. I have opted for the I4. I received an email today saying, they hope to confirm a delivery date in the early months of 2023. I'm feeling really disappointed at this time. Not sure I'm willing to wait 'forever' 🙁

12 July was after Goodwood so unfortunately there are a lot of people ahead of you in the queue. I agree they could have done a better job of managing people’s expectations on timing.

Imagine this year when Lotus rock up at Goodwood with the Evija Emira and Eletre 😲 Once again the dominant stand.

And an Emira GT4 hopefully going up the hill

July 10th, 2021 - US deposit V6 FE
March 5th, 2022 - Order

I'll be happy if I get it in 2022Q4 or even 2023Q1.

I've received near zero communication from Lotus.

Discouraging seeing all these. Aug 2 deposit in the US, pretty much been told I'm SOL for a FE, should be in the first round of bases but that's looking like further and further into 2023 as days go by

If the August guys in UK are getting their cars in Spring of 2023, that means late September guys like me in the US are not going to get to receive our non-FE cars until... what, late 2023?

I put my deposit down on the 7th July with the latest expectation of putting the 2nd deposit on the 8th April for the I4FE. Haven't had any other email or comms regarding the configurator🤷‍♂️.

That's awful. I'm sure customer care will forward you a link to configure your car and pay your second deposit if you contact them. However that won't ensure any improvement in communication from Lotus or speed up delivery. Maybe worth a try 🤞It worked for me
