KUALA LUMPUR: Lotus Cars Malaysia, the sole franchise holder for Lotus in Malaysia, has updated the pricing of the fully-electric Eletre Hyper-SUV and the premium Emira sports car with immediate effect.

The revised pricing is due to developments of the ringgit against all major foreign currencies in recent months.

Following the initial price indication announced during its Malaysian launch in April, the suggested retail price for the mid-range Eletre S is now RM698,000 (up from RM648,000), while the range-topping Eletre R now costs RM838,000 (up from RM798,000).

Prices listed for the Eletre are applicable in both Peninsular Malaysia and Langkawi.

Limited units are still available at the introductory price of RM998,800 on a first-come, first-served basis.
