Assuming this is not an April Fool, is this what some of the grumblers have been waiting for?

at least the ones that don't mind stopping half an hour to fill up and having to plan a route that may take them London to Glasgow via Bristol to make sure there are sufficient charging points....

Hardly a replacement for the PHEV - totally different concept. Nice car though.

I also made my reservation.

I have the Outi only for its AWD, not for its size.

The TM3 will quench all my needs in size, range and drivetrain I'll ever need.

I'll be putting an order in at some point. I have to make the PHEV last 6 years, so it's due for replacement in July 2020. I estimate that if I put my 'reservation' in in the next week or so, I should be roughly on course for a July 2020 RHD delivery date :lol:

Looks pretty awesome in my view.

Undecided as to whether to slap down £1,000 on a reservation at this stage - will probably hold fire and see what the final price is, and what else is out there, by the time (no doubt a number of years) that they're actually being delivered in significant numbers to the UK.

Incidentally, if you haven't read it before and have any interest in electric vehicles (and what are you doing on a forum like this if you don't?) I highly recommend devoting around half an hour of your life to this fascinating long blog post / short book:

I want a Tesla 3, I really do. However I suspect the UK will not get them till 2018-2019.

Tesla does have "form" when it comes to late deliveries.

Will have to get by with my PHEV for a few years 8-)

And the whole set-up depends on one man's enthusiasm (and pockets) to keep it going. Auto history is littered with similar failures to break into the mass market before the money ran out - e.g. Cord :?
