UPDATE:-

Renault might actually win the race. The dealership emailed yesterday to say that they're being allowed to reopen for "safe" showroom handovers & home deliveries.

New Government guidance were released on Wednesday 22nd April which confirms that dealerships can carry out vehicle handovers in a safe environment. Our priority is the health and safety of our employees and customers, but we want to assure you that we are working quickly to put a plan in place to facilitate the handover of your new vehicle, if it’s possible to do so. We will be in touch in due course to arrange either a home delivery or showroom handover.

UPDATE AGAIN:-

Just received & completed the OLEV Annex D document in preparation for BP Chargemaster turning up and install the chargepoint.
I'll have to chip in £50 for a min consumer unit as my main one is full.

Have you asked for a tethered charger?

NEW UPDATE:-

Just took a call from the dealership.
  • Car has been assigned a transport truck and should be with dealer on May 29th.
  • Due to plague storage, they've been ordered by Renault to check/charge the 12V battery.
  • Dealer has agreed to 100% charge the car before I take delivery/collect from June 2nd, due to chargepoint date.

Not long now 👍 Also, I hadn't followed this thread for a while. Did you get clarification if winter pack is now included on GT Line or not?

I haven't asked.
My thought is that salesman was speaking from wrong end. He no longer works there & I have no winter pack (I think).

UPDATE:-

My petrol car has now been signed back over to the finance company 4 months early. It's still on my drive, as the plague means BCA can't collect it.🤷‍♂️

Just had another call from the dealership.

  • My car did not arrive on the 29th as they were told by Renault. It's still in Southampton. :(
  • They have now been told that a pair of Zoes (their usual delivery) is due this Saturday (June 6th) and that mine is one of them. :D
  • Dealer will call me again on the 6th with another update.
  • Collection is now pencilled in for the afternoon of Tuesday June 9th (Charger is being fitted that morning) 🤞

What a palaver, I'm in a similar boat, delays and frustrations, but nothing compared to what some families have gone or are going through.

My car has been at the dealers compound for weeks, had hoped for a 1 June collection, but no, I'm in a queue, and it looks like they have a maximum of two car going out a day.

Won't be long now. (y)

Make sure that you see it work at the full rate and the App is fully connected on your phone before signing off the work.

I bet the wait is killing you, don't worry it will be all worth it.
First drive will be taken in England then ?.
You are free to take an unlimited drive then.
Enjoy !.

Yep. Can't wait! 🤩
The first half mile at least. As you know, the dealership is just across the border.
Depending on how much charge they give me, I may be driving home via the Instavolt at Childer Thornton ( just for practice, obvs! ;) )

Nice plan !.
Going to be a very short charge, the battery will be still pretty full if the dealer has already fully charged the car prior to collection.
Which they should OBTW !.
You may have to extended your route to find space in the battery.
Oh well ....... Things could be worse !.
Enjoy the freedom and the car.

Penultimate update:-

Yesterday, I received the reg number & switched my insurance over to the Zoe. LV only wanted another £50 for the year, this despite the Zoe being almost 3 times what the Up cost new.
This morning, I spent standing in the driveway with a very nice, neat & punctual engineer from BP Chargemaster. All work done to high standards, and final OLEV email sent.

FINAL UPDATE:-

It MINE! :love: Renault included a set of mats and a 100% full battery. Now to hit up EVOneStop for a granny lead and a bag for the type 2 cable.
One downside though, ALL the user manuals provided are in German.
