  1. FORD TAKES ACTION TO ADDRESS EFFECTS OF CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC

    The price of fuel in Europe is mainly tax of some sort or another so I’m not expecting a bit drop in view of the oil price. I think the stock market crash is going to have a much greater impact on peoples’ buying decisions. It’s too early to assess the affect of Covid-19 yet as it hasn’t...

    Yes, it looks like the whole world is shutting down. I’ll be surprised if there are any deliveries in 2020.
  3. UK Customers

    Kia are just as bad regarding the UK market. For example, the e-Niro EV is only available in the UK in the highest spec version. As if electric cars aren’t expensive enough without piling on every option under the sun.
  4. UK Customers

    Thanks, but I have feeling a lot of the numbers, e.g. range haven’t been finalised yet.
  5. UK Customers

    Thanks for the update, that’s useful.. I‘m still happy with my spec but I’d like an update from Ford over final numbers (price, grant eligibility, range, performance). I was also hoping for some reviews before having to commit to a firm order but this doesn’t look like it’s going to happen...
  6. Is the Mach-E really 7 years behind Tesla?

    Country lanes in the UK are an example of continuous odd ball situations and I don't believe we'll see autonomous driving on those sort of roads for a very, very long time. There are some You Tube clips by 'Tesla Driver' which illustrate this. Tesla Driver
  7. EPA Range for Porsche Taycan is 201 Miles

    But if I had the money, I‘d buy the Porsche, then the Tesla and probably not the rest 😀
  8. UK Tax Incentives to continue on EVs to 2022/23

    So hopefully Ford can manage £191. In fact, they don’t have to lose it, just move it to the delivery charge so we can qualify for the grant on the LR RWD model.
  9. UK Tax Incentives to continue on EVs to 2022/23

    I'm definitely not begging! But, I do want the best bang for my pound\buck (delete as appropriate). Last week, the Mach-E extended, RWD was about the same price as a Tesla LR AWD M3. After the recent UK budget, the M3 is now more than £3000 cheaper for me because of a slight quirk in the...

  11. UK Tax Incentives to continue on EVs to 2022/23

    From the Tesla website: "The plug-in grant is a purchase subsidy of up to £3,000 which is deducted from the purchase price of eligible new Tesla vehicles. Vehicles with a list price under £50,000 before application of optional extras, delivery and registration charges are eligible." I assume...
  12. Coronavirus impact

    I thought this at first, then along came the small print specifying a 50k cap. The luxury tax has been scrapped but no grant for >50k list price cars
  13. Coronavirus impact

    I'm of a similar mindset, especially if Ford doesn't reduce the UK price of the extended range model to qualify for the £3000 grant (as Tesla appear to have done)
  14. You asked the questions ... now get the answers (well some)

    Tesla have reduced the UK price of their long range M3 such that it qualifies for the grant. (At least Tesla thinks it does). I wonder if Ford will follow suit?
  15. UK Tax Incentives to continue on EVs to 2022/23

    If they don't, I may well cancel my order. It will interesting to see if there is any response from Tesla on their long range models.
  16. UK Tax Incentives to continue on EVs to 2022/23

    But not for cars >£50k list price. :(
  17. You asked the questions ... now get the answers (well some)

    I've ordered the same spec as you and the panoramic roof is listed under additional features. I paid a £1000 deposit as well. Great news from the UK Budget today, the £1,600 luxury tax on cars >£40,000 has now been scrapped for EVs :):)
  18. UK Tax Incentives to continue on EVs to 2022/23

    Good new for us UK buyers. The continuation of the tax relief was in doubt From the Budget Statement (my bold) "Consumer incentives support the development of markets for new transport technology. The government is considering the long-term future of incentives for zero emission vehicles...

    Well if it does this is one order that will bite the dust. At that time most of us won’t have had the opportunity to even sit in the car let alone drive it.
