Introduction

Post by Wombleyaq » Sun Feb 28, 2021 3:19 pm

I've just placed an order for a Enyaq 80 Loft. I placed a deposit back in December, and finalised the order in the UK pre-order window this week.

We currently have an Audi Q3, but the e-tron is crazy expensive, so revisiting the Skoda marque (previous Octavia owner).

No idea on delivery time yet, but apparently main dealers can log orders with the factory from 10/03/2021, so I'll find out then...

Welcome to the forum!

Will this be your first electric car then?

Yup... enjoying looking at all the options currently for home chargers, energy tarrifs etc. With all the in-car tech, it's basically a massive gadget.

I'll probably find out in a week that it'll be September or later before I get it!

It'll be interesting to know how long delivery will be - I'm looking at possibly ordering around Q2 2022 for a delivery in Jan 23. Does that sound realistic?

I'll let you know my experience as soon as they confirm date - order has gone in!

Got my build week: 22. So I should be looking at taking delivery late June / early July apparently.

Also got my order done in time to get the full EV grant, which is a bonus!

Nice one! You were lucky. I'm not in a position to get anything done until next month at the earliest and that means no Sportline for me! :cry:

I'll have to have a re-think but, at the moment, the only cars that still qualify for the (reduced) EV Grant, that I like, are the iV60 or Kia EV6 :?

Still, I am genuinely happy for you and the others, who have scraped through before the shutters came down! :lol:

Cheers

It was pure luck, but I'll happily take it.

The grant changes seem purely cost-driven. If they mean practical EVs are now out of reach for people who were considering them, that's a step backwards for cleaner cars.
