Hi Dave,

I have a deposit down, but still feeling a bit meh at the moment, for sure it’s not going to be like my Exige, but a trip to Mendig would go someway to fixing that. The Elan is staying that’s for sure.

We will see, I need to see one and drive one, that’s a definite. Maybe let the better half have it 😆

cheers

Mark

First post (I think), though I've had my account for a few years!

I initially ignored my dealer's invitation to put down an early deposit thinking it wouldn't be of much interest to me, but saw a YouTube video in my feed the following morning and like many was smitten straight away, so put a deposit down that morning. Hopefully I've not pushed myself too far down the list!

I think when I place my orders Bell and Colvil Already had 50 deposits. If this is the case I would guess with the UK dealers there would be at least 150 deposit down prior to my order.

All the Best

Impressively long list now. I wonder how much it reflects the distribution of orders for the UK as a whole? I suspect the list here is skewed heavily towards early deposits.

There are going to be a lot of very excited people on this forum when deliveries start next year 🙂

I think you're right, TLF members are more likely to be in the early adopters.  Many are long term Lotus owners happy to buy without press/own test drives.  Others are newer to Lotus/TLF but signed up here because they've been bitten by the Emira bug and are early depositers looking for and sharing info.

From chats I've had with Lotus folks my rough impression of the total UK deposit numbers is as follows (others may have better info):

  • Pre 6 July reveal: 200ish total
  • Post reveal, pre Goodwood Day 1 (8 July): 500ish total
  • Goodwood (8-11 July): +400ish per day
  • End of Goodwood (11 July): 2000 total
  • 23 July: 2500 total

There are lots of variables impacting the queue, such as how many deposits convert to orders (reasonable to assume 60-70%) and whether people choose Toyota/AMG and First Edition/own spec.  Supply is going to be affected by how quickly Lotus ramp up production (5000/y is 100/w but that's total worldwide), what the UK allocation is (was 800-1000/y but may change), timing of a 2nd shift being added, whether they finish all FEs before starting own spec deliveries etc etc.

My rough guess is based on UK Toyota FEs delivered first for 3 months at a slower rate, with non-UK deliveries starting after a month, then AMG deliveries start from month 4 and it ramps up to full rate including a second shift.  That would mean 200 UK cars in M1, 75-100 UK cars in M2, 75-100 UK in M3, 150-200 per month from M4 onwards.

That would mean pre-Goodwood deposits get delivered April to July 2022, Goodwood deposits July to October.

Lots of guesses on my part - we should get more info in September.
