Lotus is recalling its Emira sports car for three separate issues.

    The first sees 76 examples of the 2022-2023 Lotus Emira being recalled to fix an issue with the windscreen wipers.

    “Due to a software issue, the windscreen wipers may operate at half the required speed,” said the company in its recall notice.

    “In the event of heavy rain this may lead to poor visibility for the driver.”

    Lotus is recalling 101 examples of the 2022-2023 Emira because the side curtain airbags may cause the A-pillar covers to detach in a crash.

    “Due to a manufacturing defect, the driver and passenger side A-pillar trims may have been fitted incorrectly,” said the company in its recall notice.

    “As a result, in an event of the side curtain airbags deployment the force from the airbag could cause the A-pillars cover to detach.”

    Lotus is recalling 26 examples of the 2022 Emira due to an issue with the seatbelt locking mechanism.

    “Due to a defect during assembly, the driver and passenger’s seatbelt locking mechanism may engage at the incorrect point,” said the company in its recall notice.

    “As a result, the seatbelt could engage tightly across the chest and waist and limit movements which may lead to restricted visibility.

    “Additionally, the seatbelt could require increased effort to unbuckle.”
