September 18, 2023 Andrew Cheng

Lotus Cars Malaysia is revising the prices for two of its models on our shores. Both the Lotus Eletre EV and the Lotus Emira sports car see a price hike in Malaysia, which is attributed to “developments of the ringgit against all major foreign currencies in recent months.”

Let’s start with the Eletre. The Eletre S is now priced at RM698,000 (up by RM50,000), while the range-topping Eletre R is going for RM838,000 (up by RM40,000). As for the base Eletre, its new pricing will only be revealed at a later date, given that it won’t be available “until at least 2025,” as Lotus puts it.

As for the Emira, the two-seat sports car sees an even bigger price hike, given that it’s also a more costly model. The Emira V6 with a 3.5 litre supercharged V6 engine now retails at RM1,289,000 and RM1,309,000 for the six-speed manual and automatic variants respectively. Both models now cost RM83,200 more.

For Langkawi, the price increase is quite a bit different. The Emira V6 with a manual transmission goes for RM529,000 (up by RM50,200) on the island, while the automatic model is now priced at RM539,000 – that is a RM45,200 price increase.

As for the Emira i4 with a 2.0L inline-four engine, it sees no price difference; it’s still going for RM1,095,000 or RM509,000 duty-free for Langkawi. It’s worth noting that limited units of the Emira i4 are still available at the introductory price (RM998,000) on a first-come, first-served basis.
