Re: been and bought one

Thanks Jim, I will ask them to confirm the delivery date next week. I wonder if they have had a 'run' on them? The expected number sold for 2016 was said to be 1000. Hope they DO NOT use Hanjin for transport - they have gone bust according to the press! Yours Peter Not sure, I think it's probably b...

Re: Battery Life??

I guess it's hard to say what the life will be on these, but I'd say it's a good sign that they are covering it for the full 7 years. I was told that they will replace the battery if the performance drops below 75%, was also told cost of battery is £1600 ish. Until the car is in the wild for a few y...

Re: Bought one :-)

We have just ordered a First Edition in Ocean Blue Today. Unfortunately we won't get it till mid- October, but we really liked the car after a 30 minute test-drive. Got 47 mpg without trying very hard that was a lot of stop start traffic too! Very smooth and quiet. :D Nice one! I think the bigger t...

Re: Bought one :-)

Sounds like safety pack can't be retrofitted so have to be factory order. But for an extra £350 it was hard not to justify getting in my opinon. .....actually for the cost, I think they should have put them on the entire range as standard.
