Nothing. But then I'm not expecting any more comms. re: delivery dates until mid-June at the earliest.

For reasons too complicated to explain I've cancelled our Model 3 SR+ order frown. Got the £2k order deposit back surprisingly quickly though.

Still looking fowards to see what UK think of the car.

Do tell. It can’t be that complicated.

Cold feet?

I'm out for now too. Got my deposit back in about 48 hours. One click on the website, so no worries there.

I'm going to wait for price cuts and save some BIK and probably buy in the autumn.

There is a thread for EvEzy in this forum and the cars are on their website now

I recommend them

July/August I was quoted. I think there might be quite a few nearly new i3s on the fleet at that point, (certainly one)

Indeed. I will say though I'm a little nervous about handing over the £3k or so 'deposit' required to get on the list for the M3 LR after being messed about so much around iPace availability (which is the car I really want at the end of the day).

There are now 150 iPaces for sale on AutoTrader, nearly 10% discounts on all versions S up to First Addition, and virtually appear to be low millage ex-demo/pre-reg cars, so if you really want an iPace I would say your spoilt for choice.

The Model 3 deposit was only £2K for us, and also it got refunded within 10 days of us cancelling the order.

If you haven't ordered, just wait for the first boat road to arrive, and pick up a cut price inventory car (probably with free for life SuperCharging) when end of Q2 push really starts.

SWOL is talking about the EVEZY cars not buying outright.

Is there still no news on the iPace? I moved myself off that wait list onto the Model 3 LR as soon as the list for that went up. Deposit on card so if all goes pear shaped I should be OK.

No, nothing forthcoming. Been told a number of reasons for the delay including issues getting cars from Jaguar and challenges integrating the EVEzy systems with the car but still no details on a confirmed date.

My concern is they will drop it and just go with the Model 3 as it's all been a bit vague. I like the Tesla but my personal requirements are far better met by the iPace so would rather not commit to an M3 to find the iPace will be available in a similar timescale.

Need to offload the wife's car shortly though so still planning on signing up for another i3 via her account or possibly a Zoe as a second car until we can get into something a bit bigger and more suited to our longer term needs.

I also worry if they may have issues integrating their software with the M3, especially every time there is an OTA update!

Have to say my order is also cancelled.
Took a good look around the 3 in Milton Keynes showroom and wasn't very impressed with it for the money plus after getting a few updates on my Model S which seems to be making things worse with the cruise control system and things starting to look tired (2016 P90D) as well as the ups and downs of pricing I took the hit and sold this too.

Decided to drop the cash into a rather nice SL500 for a year and see where the EV market goes. Still have the i3 which is excellent to home charge and use locally.

I'm not sure your forecast is accurate. If you order now (without holding a reservation), chances are your Model 3 would arrive late Q4 (according to Tesla staff in the UK), plus the contract hire prices indicate that future residuals will be very strong.

This is a bit lazy, but in real £ how much is the long range model 3.

The actual site contain lots of numbers... How much hard cash do I have to fork out.....

You'd think that was obvious...

But my guess is

£47,900 Car including doc fees etc are included in that
£ -3500 grant

making £44,400
Plus any options

Source? Staff are telling me July/August for most orders including SR+. Though SR+ is still not on sale in most of Europe so I'm a little sceptical of that. But Septemberish seems likely. I originally ordered on release and had early July estimate then, so can't imagine it's much different now.

I'm closer to reodering after cancelling after finding out most of the EVs advertised for sale near me in dealers, don't actually exist. Unless you want a Leaf or a Zoe lease, it does seem like Tesla is the way to go for a sub 40k car.
It was staff in Tesla Canary Wharf store. The trouble with Tesla is that you get a number of different answers depending upon whom you speak to.
