Hey all,

I came to the party very late :cry: and only paid my initial deposit at the end of last month, via the Lotus website. As I could not configure an i4, I just configured a V6, and paid the requested £4k deposit online. I subsequently emailed Lotus to advise that my deposit was for an i4.

So my question is directed at early i4 deposit holders. Have you just paid your initial £2k deposit, or have you had to pay Lotus a further deposit? From what I understand, early v6 deposit holders have paid a further £3k deposit (£5k total) in the lead up to confirming their spec, but I’ve not seen any posts from i4 deposit holders confirming an additional £3k deposit payment, presumably as they are not due to start i4 production anytime soon.

Thanks
Michael

More info about i4 FE pricing and spec due sometime in March, earliest likely UK delivery for i4 FE cars is fourth quarter this year, maybe a bit later, hopefully still in 2022 though!

Thanks…my question though isn’t about pricing or spec. It’s whether early i4 deposit holders have just paid the initial £2k deposit, or have they been asked to pay more? In my instance, I’ve paid £4k.

I have just paid the initial £2k, nothing else so far for my i4. I had the first phone call to pick V6 or i4 and nothing since

Ah yes sorry, I should have said, I can't help regarding the deposit as I originally paid the £2K + £3K for a V6 and then changed to an i4, so I'm not much help ;)

Thanks mate. IMO, it’s probably a good thing that Lotus are asking new deposit holders like me, £4k, as it might eliminate some buyers who aren‘t entirely serious.

As another data point, I put down the 2K initially, have had the phone call early this year to find out which spec I wanted to be in the queue for (i4 FE), and have not been asked for the second deposity yet.

Same - £2k deposit am 7th July just a confirmation it’s i4 required not v6 FE. Advised likely late 2022 or early 2023 delivery i4 FE by B&C but that was around November last year so hoping things brought forward a touch guess will find out more in March

For people who paid first deposit in 2022 and didn’t opt for V6 First Edition, Lotus aren’t due to start the second stage calls until March.

So no one has paid a second deposit on an i4 yet (unless they went to step 2 on a V6 FE and then switched to i4).
