Here's an update. We have 49 entries so far. This represents about 25 dealers, so too much data for a chart. Here's the summary though. You can find this in the Summary tab of the sheet (link in my signature).

This tracker is in the spirt of the Emira reservation tracker that was posted on LotusTalk a few years back. That tracker ended up garnering about 240 entries and though that is a fraction of all Emira reservations, the data was very interesting (to me at least) and helped me finalize the configuration of my own Emira. Here is a comparison of exterior colors from the older reservation tracker and newer delivery tracker (currently at 77 entries). The %s don't match up, but they still show trends and perhaps how choices changed once people got to see examples in person.

Automatic Emira of any sort has not passed CARB emissions, they will also all be 2025MY cars. To date I am not aware of any production automatic Emiras being shipped to the US.

That’s what I thought as well but the post above shows 1 en route to Denver?? Maybe an old EuroSpec demo?

Yea, if there's one floating out there, it's probably a EU model demo.

I test drove an automatic last year at Lotus Cape Fear. So that was an EU spec vs. an early U.S. spec even though not approved? Is there a way to know this definitively?

The headlights of the US spec cars would have the amber strip. I believe some other differences relate to the passenger airbag sensor size (US is larger, 'Murica!) and the logic of how the automatic person detection works. Either the US or the EU also either lacks or has a passenger airbag switch in the glovebox - I don't recall which was which.

But the amber strip is the easiest way to tell.

Thanks! You're right...the automatic I test drove (left) did not have the amber strip on the headlight, but the car on the right (my Emira!!!) has it.
