Lotus North American Elise/Exige production to end later this year
Kind of sucks, no more Elise or Exige in the USA:
Lotus will have to pull the two models from the U.S. because of the expiration of a "smart" airbag exemption that will leave the models on the wrong side of government regulations. That, coupled with the fact that Toyota spit out the last 2ZZ-GE four-cylinder engine in the spring, means that Lotus will wind down production on the U.S. Elise and Exige models by August.
