Lotus Slashes Servicing Costs on Elise, Exige and Evora: Now Starts From Just £270

Sign in to follow this  
  • New lower price on 9,000-mile first service
  • Average maintenance cost reduction of 37% on entire sports car range
  • Price cuts on Lotus consumables including filters, plugs, drive belts and fluids
  • Servicing schedules and job times also realigned for further running cost reductions

(Hethel, UK – 23 March 2020) – Lotus has slashed the price of servicing an Elise, Exige or Evora, with annual maintenance work now starting from just £270 depending on the model.

The initiative is now live at every one of the UK’s 27 Lotus retailers and service centres, and applies to all versions of the Elise, Exige and Evora. Coupled with improved residual values, it means lower running costs and improved value for money for current and future Lotus customers.

It means the price of the first service (9,000 miles or one year) on a Lotus Elise Sport 220 – the best-selling version – has been cut from £554 to just £270. Across all three current models the average first service cost has been reduced by 37%.

Almost 50 regular servicing components have had their prices reduced, including filters, plugs, drive belts and fluids. In addition, Lotus has also simplified the servicing schedules and realigned servicing job times for each car. Together these initiatives mean lower running costs during the entire ownership period.

Lotus’ whole life running costs are already among the best in the sports car sector, as data from industry analyst CAP proves. Residual values on a three-year-old Lotus Elise Cup 220 jumped up 8%, to 56%, between Q2 and Q4 2019. Figures for a Lotus Evora GT410 Sport rose by a staggering 15%, also to 56%, during the same period.

Chris Hinks, Director of Aftersales, Lotus, commented: “This change is fantastic news for our customers, who can now benefit from the servicing expertise of a Lotus retailer for even less money. We’re driving down the cost of ownership and saving people money.”

The initiative could be rolled out in other global markets in due course.

  • Saturday drive out and swim

    Great drive out to Hathersage this morning for a swim in the open air pool which is fab, heated to 28deg all year. First proper drive out on quiet roads after changing squealing 2 piece disks for EBC turbos so I could properly enjoy the car. What a machine 😍💨

    One off track day insurance Donington 21st Sept

    Evening all . i am doing a track day at Donington on Monday and have discovered I dropped track insurance off my policy in 2018 as I hadn’t done 1 the previous year . My annual policy is £296 this year so I was a little shocked to find Adrian  flux could only offer me a 1 day policy at £213 for 1 DAY !. can anyone recommend a better priced company to cover me ?? And almost as importantly is anyone else here booked for Monday, would be nice to see some familiar faces.

    The Wait is Excruciating...

    I posted here back in July - placed a factory order for an Elise 220 (first time Lotus owner, dream car!) which was originally due this week, but it got delayed back to mid-October! Oakmere updated me with the chassis number a couple of weeks ago and it was in "paint" at that stage. Based on another member's reply to my other thread I had asked if they could get some photo's of it being built, but Lotus haven't sent any over yet. What's 5 more weeks right?.... 😩

    Bye for now

    My last Lotus went at the weekend and it feels like the end of an era. Ten years ish continuous ownership and probably 15 years since I bought my first. They have been very good to me over the years but strangely I haven’t missed one of them yet. I’m sure I’ll be back at some point down the line but I have other priorities in my life at the mo. All the best to you all and I’m sure our paths will cross sooner or later.
