Has UK price been pubilsed ref luxury car VED
Not yet, but looking at the German figure of "less than 46,000EUR for the Plus" and depending how the exchange rate changes over the next couple of months I fear it's going to be a close run thing to get it for £39,999 or less!

If price were to be at par for a Model 3, I guess that might sway a few on the list too.
Yep, if I have to pay 'luxury VED', I will go for M3. Either car will do the job I need a car for, but the M3 for me looks better (subjective), is sportier, and has better charging network.

With all these cancellations will they build less of the “1st” cars and start the production of the normal basic car early, or will they make the cancelled cars available to others?

Another thing, now they have started production and will be stockpiling the cars being built now (my understanding) to release they in six months time all items like brake fluid will be six months old.

Something to think about.

I believe VW UK have said they have a waiting list of people to fill the cancelled build slots.

Exactly, you could order one today and still get one I recon.

"Already more than 35,000 customers reserved an ID.3 and paid a pre-booking deposit, but only 30,000 of the 1ST launch edition will be made."

The discrepancy is because VW opened "regular edition" orders in Austria (and maybe a couple other countries) when their allocation ran out.

Still waiting for an update from VW here. The last email I received from them was confirmation of the pre-booking payment (June/July).
I called my "designated dealer" to see if they had any news. They said they would call back but nobody has.
I'll give them a few more days but seven months with no update is really taking the piss.

I assume you have your pre-bookers ID number and should have received several emails with the last on about the 26th Nov. advising of the release of uk specs and pricing in the New Year. If not then you need to contact VW uk direct as the dealer will have no information on you at this stage.

The email from vw UK such was sent to prebookers, on or around 26th Nov' stated that your designated dealer we had noted back in May does not know that you have nominated them and will not have your details. I think it's related to use of your details as 'data under GDPR n that they have not passed those on to dealerships. I've attached the 2,3 of the email I received, on a post yesterday\day before if you want to see what vs UK have said to us prebookers.
