Your correct but even so all cars imported to US have to have CARB certification.This has already been discussed at great length in this thread. CARB is CA + 14 other states (and D.C.).
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.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
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.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.
Schroedinger's Emira, it is simultaneously in every spot at any instant, including the factory, on a ship, at the dealership, and even in your garage. But if you look at any one place, it's not there.Currently in pieces in China....I mean maybe on a boat coming over?
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.It’s every one at this point. The days of “California Emissions” are long gone
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.
Please don’t panic the prisoners of this thread like this LOL.All 700 Emiras are said to be on a ship called the Galaxy Leader…
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)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.
