Texas,
Heh, and the funny part is that the glass actually started out full, but has a leak in the bottom. 😄
Soon this will be US.

just wondering, since CARB is a California state entity, is it for the entire US? or is it just for california?

This has already been discussed at great length in this thread. CARB is CA + 14 other states (and D.C.).

Your correct but even so all cars imported to US have to have CARB certification.
It not and you wanted to sell a car from a non CARB to a CARB state you would not theoretically be able to do so.
Therefore all cars have to have CARB certification.
This what I understand

Correct. It's like if Scotland had its own emissions standards that were more stringent than those in England, but auto companies could only import cars on a general basis to the UK. In order for those cars to be legal across the whole UK market, they must conform to all standards applicable anywhere within it.

Do we know what day the EPA passed the Emira? I thought I heard someone say that typically CARB follows after EPA about 6 weeks in a lag.

EPA document release is a few weeks behind. There is nothing there yet. Also no NHTSA VIN registration document or even the Emira being registered as a model of Lotus.

Yup, and that’s what worries me a little. We should have seen it in there by now

Im not worried by either of those. Just because it’s not posted doesn’t mean it’s not happening. These are just public record sites, which can be delayed by a lot.

It’s every one at this point. The days of “California Emissions” are long gone
No, not yet. EPA is working towards that, but it has not yet occurred and will not for 5+ years if you read the EPA website. Plus EPA emission standards may change with shifting political winds.

Your car probably has not been built yet, so you will need more patience. In the mean time this thread will wonder aimlessly until some verifiable evidence that Emiras for the North American market are here.

If it goes past 2024 Im out. When i placed m deposit they said 18months to 2 years max. Then about 6months ago said probably spring or summer of 2023.
Maybe to place an order Summer 2023 once the base configurator goes live - if it was for a delivered car next year, you most likely would have gotten an allocation and submit the final build. (exception is if you want an i4)

This is only a guess, but it looks like Lotus will be releasing the base edition sometime early next year and will probably fulfill UK/EU/ROW build slots for the last half of 2024. (after AUG - Q1 & Q2 seems to be slated for i4 F/E's and N/A V6 F/E's) US/CAN base editions would come after. (begin delivery in Q1 2025) Of course this is an assumption, but based on the trajectory of the V6 F/E's it would seem likely.

Only caveat I see is that North American i4's and UK/ROW i4's maybe in production at the same time. So there is a possibility that base V6's get produced all together and Q4 2024 delivery is best case scenario if that happens. I guess it depends on how much demand they have left for the Base V6 Emira.

When does Toyota stop V6 production?! Did Lotus order enough for production continuation?! The drama!
