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.
|Lotus Eletre||Old Price||New Price||Price Difference|
|Lotus Emira||Old Price||New Price||Price Difference|
|Emira V6 (manual)||RM1,205,800|
|Emira V6 (automatic)||RM1,225,800|
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.
