Production Delays

This is the gift that keeps on giving it seems, there are severe delays in the manufacture of all marques, the global semiconductor shortage is seeing delivery times measured in months rather than weeks. The option to choose a stock vehicle to bypass the delays is becoming more and more difficult as stocks deplete and are not able to be replenished, the gaps between vehicles on the forecourt are increasing as stocks are scarse. We ordered a new vehicle six weeks ago and were given an estimate of 9 months, we still have no information over a build slot but at least the honesty of the dealership did not give us false hope.

 

New Vehicles for Q3

We already have it confirmed that that the new Nssan Qashqai will be joining, priced from £699 AP in Nconnecta GR trim as a manual or £1099 as an auto. Tekna trim is £1599/£1999 and Tekna + is £1999/£2399.

There is talk of the Mercedes EQA, best that remains to be seen,. There will be reductions in the cost of Plugin Hybrids, SEAT have already announced the Leon PHEV will be reduced to Nil Advance Payment for Q3.

 

New Cars through Q2

As is the way, there have been a number of new additions to the Scheme throughout Q2:

 

Volkswagen Caddy Maxi Life (7 seater)

The new for 2021 Caddy Maxi life is a van based people carrier that has the luxury of rear sliding doors. Powered by a detuned 2.0 litre diesel engine offering 120 bhp, the Caddy is now an option for under 25’s on the Scheme. Economy is a claimed 55.9 mpg as a six speed manual or 52.8 mpg as a 7 speed DSG Automatic. The Life trim is the top of the range and comes complete with an 8.25 inch touchscreen, roof rails, 17 inch alloy wheels, cruise control, app connect (screen mirroring for phones), front and rear parking sensors. Priced at a competitive Advance Payment of £949 manual, £1449 automatic.

 

 

Golf GTE (PHEV)

The GTE is the Plugin Hybrid version of the fast VW Golf, sister to the GTi and the diesel powered GTD, the GTD is also in the Scheme. The Plugin Hybrid GTE pairs a turbocharged 1.4-litre four-cylinder petrol engine and gearbox-mounted electric motor working through a six-speed DSG gearbox. The Battery has a 13.0kWh capacity offering an electric only range of 38 miles. The GTE is a fast car, the combined power is 242 brake horse power, 94bhp coming from the electric motor, 0-62 miles per hour can be reached in 6.7 seconds and the top speed is 140 mph. Charging the battery takes 3hrs 40mins using a 3.6kW wallbox, or 5hrs from a traditional 3 pin mains socket. The Advance Payment is £3295 (£2172 wpms) as at Q2 2021.

 

 

Hyundai Kona Electric

The Hyundai Kona has a 64kWh battery, a range of 300 miles and fast charging from 10% – 80% in as little as 47 minutes on a 100kW DC rapid charger, charging from empty to full on a standard 7kW charger takes 9 hours 15 minutes. Progress is quick, if not Tesla sipped, 0-62 mph in 7.9 seconds and a top speed of 104 mph. The Kona is not a large car, similar in size to a Fiat 500x, Renault Captur of Ford Puma and the position of the batteries eats into the boot capacity leaving only 332 litres of space, by comparison the Ford Fiesta has a 311 litre boot. The top trim, Ultimate with electric seats, heated and cooled in the front and a glass roof, is astonishingly good value at £499 Advance Payment which includes the instillation of a home charger or should you not have room you can opt to have membership to BP Pulse (usually £7.85 per month) with reduced rates from 12p per kW of charge.
