  3. I received an email today from mail@lotuscars.com about my 7th July deposit  "We’re pleased to confirm that your Emira is still scheduled for production in 2022". Last I heard was that my car was a December build January delivery.😄

  4. Checked Lotus customer care's delivery numbers today and was given the scheduled deliveries for December and January.

    End of December 130 cars

    End of January another 170 cars

    Total 300 cars by end of January. Knowing that we should be able to keep an eye as to how on target they are. You would assume these schedules would have made up our estimated delivery emails recently received. 

  5. I'm surprised the dealerships who took the deposits for the pre revealers haven't stuck their necks out to sort this out. Surely they have some pull on this, it's pretty embarrassing for them ultimately and jeopardizes very long serving customer relationships. If I was at B&C for Tom I'd be livid. I think this is the single most telling thing about the ethos at the head office now. Busy and complicated or not, that only needed a conversation between senior management to fix, and there is no way they aren't aware of the problem to their most loyal customers.

  6. It’s a complete shambles, the fact the dealer cars have consistently been 2 weeks away every 2 weeks… how can you not even accurately advise this whilst also delivering customer cars to Czech republic to people who put a deposit down in December.

  7. I jumped onto customer care chat and the news is that my Oct build/Nov delivery is now December build/January delivery 😂 They're doing a good job of getting my hopes up for a delivery to then drop a 2 month delay

    Two emails in one day, it's hotting up...

    As an important Emira customer I wanted to let you know that our dedicated team will be calling you in the coming days to discuss the status of your order. Please keep an eye out for a call from +441753 941775.

    Thank you for being a valued Lotus customer and for your patience.

    They even managed to spell my name correctly in this one!

    I got both of these emails today too, 7th July deposit. Wondering if it means checkout soon or delay again

  10. Same email for me, I have always been batch 1 and my email reads production October which to mean means November delivery based on what they're said previously. First feeling is that I would delay if not cancel at this point unfortunately. Timings are out for me now

  11. I asked Antonia at B&C and sounds like their demo won't arrive until late August/early September in line with customer deliveries starting. She said "we" will be in touch when they are able to organise test drives, so sounds like the dealer will contact you

  12. Has there been any news from dealerships like bell and colvill as to when their demonstrator car turns up? And any news as to the order of who test drives them or the arrangement of this. You'd hope it's offered in order of deposits and we are going to be contacted

  13. Called this yesterday, I can only imagine this is a case of out of touch old boys behind the business who just don't understand today's world. It's not hard, you leave social media and your customers to do your advertisement for you. Not having dark verdant here was a mistake.

  14. Hi Everyone,

    I thought perhaps this could have it's own topic for everyone to share their own experiences and photographs. 

    Customer services latest update on test drives:

    "The latest information we have received advised test drives will be available at Lotus Centres coinciding with first deliveries and that all customers will have an opportunity to test drive prior to committing. We have been chasing for further updates as we approach July and have been informed all customers will be contacted within the next week."

    Looking forward to hearing about your test drives!

  15. oh for sure I don't disagree, I'm using the test drive as an example. I am aware of being a first delivery, I've been through it before and the test drive isn't crucial for me. I'm not touching on new ground here, we all know the customer engagement has been terrible, they've had time to sort this out. Don't tell me you're desperate to find a way to provide a test drive to those in July that want one then sell 40 minute test drives for £720 to people at the back at the queue. Offering the first customers the 20 minute drive would have resolved the problem of it being a lacklustre experience and would have given something back to those who were first whilst providing a test drive. It's not rocket science and just another mistake which was obvious to me

    Lotus are still looking at how to do test drives for the July delivery batch people, as dealer demo cars won't be delivered until July with the first customer cars.

    Thanks for being the middle man still Tom. Do we have any idea what this could be, how or when they will announce it?

    I can let the absence of any communication to us actual customers (not shmee etc) slip since at the end of the day I would still have the car at the end of it and that will no longer matter. But what I can't stand is feeling rubbed up the wrong way. 

    We are theoretically 5 weeks before a first delivery and 1 week away from commitment to purchase and they can't offer me a test drive before my delivery for less than £720 for 40 minutes!😂Where was our email offering the July people the 20 minute test drive as a priority? It's not rocket science to have offered this. There wasn't one and now it's fully booked before my delivery date. When I phone to ask what the crack is surrounding a test drive for July they read from a script saying "we're desperate to give the early deposit holders a test drive, we can't figure out how to but we will let you know soon" When I pressed more and asked whether that was going to be this week, next week, 3 weeks? She said she had no idea. Well how can you say soon then if you have no idea. As above they have less than 1 week to offer the first deposit holder a test drive, when you look at it like that It is just hilariously appalling.

    There is not a lot more frustrating than feeling helpless and unable to communicate with a company when you have a problem and the only person you can talk to is a minor employee who has no authority or ability to provide a solution, If this is the way it's going to be when trying to get hold of Lotus after they've had my £80,000 it is seriously worrying and I don't want to be involved with Lotus at all.

    Seems quite a lot of people were undecided i4 or v6 on the list. Have many firmed up their decision?

    I’m still very uncertain about going for an Emira at all. Not because I worry about the car but because it would have to replace the Exige..

    99% of the order dates on that list will have had to have confirmed which engine they were having by now
