Be interesting!
Obviously Emira pricing has been set for some time now, so any positive adjustment to account for a reduction in VAT for Lotus benefit would be very obvious

It's funny, while UK gets a nice 5% discount - Canada receives a 10% luxury tax on top of our normal HST(VAT) for all cars over 100K CAD started sept 1st.

Glad you guys get some reprieve. I suppose we are not being as negatively affected by the Ukraine-russia conflict as everyone else, and having the 3rd largest oil supplies on the planet helps.

"The price you pay will be the price you ordered at". If there's a 5% reduction in VAT, the price would go down. I doubt even if the VAT cut happens it'd be passed on, we'd just be paying more for the car and less in VAT. I wouldn't actually mind this as the "extra" might go to actually making the car.

Depending if this happens and when the early adopters, like myself, may be incurring an initial 5% depreciation if the VAT cut comes after purchase or we may actually obtain the saving if its before purchase. With my luck it will will be the former and not the latter.

I now don't want the 30 day call at least until Liz has been in the role 2-3 weeks..

There is no guarantee of any discount

Truss is a politician, Who will say whatever crap she needs to say to get elected

I'd happily take a 5% increase in price if it meant that dunce was not about to be running the country...

EDIT: yes, I have violated the "no politics" rule, which I take very seriously... but she really is that useless.
