Hi, if I've got the emissions figure correct then the RFL costs are as per the below. For I4 (AMG) this means £555 in year one (a chunk less than the V6) and £490 in years 2-6 (£155 plus £335) then £155 thereafter, subject to any increases in the interim. Please feel free to correct if I've got any of that wrong!

I read that the i4 emissions will start from 180g/km, but perhaps I'm wrong too
That's what i was struggling to find so I based it on Mercedes AMG emissions - but not certain I got the right one! Someone out there knows the answer I'm sure....
 
See the bottom of this page, which is where I saw the 180g/km figure:


By comparison the V6 is "from 234g/km"
 
I'd now make the same assumption and figures, but from a previous thread there is the strong suggestion that the i4 FE could have an OTR price approaching 75k, putting it very close to the v6 FE, which could make another £1500 not that important if you're going to spend that kind of money in the first place. If you're going for a £60k base then correct, nice chunk of money saved for perhaps another option box to tick. (y)

The applicable emissions bands are:

151 - 170 - £555 in year one
171 - 190 - £895 in year one.

Both are then £490 in years two - six.
 
It's on the Lotus press release from the Emira launch - target is under 180g/km
