Almost half of people who have put the deposit down have cancelled, that is a surprise. I think the issue is due to almost no communication from VW, when they promised the 1st pre-bookers would get lots of info and special treatment.
Just under 40% of the list above!

I am still a reservation holder.

The way things are going it may work out perfectly for when our Ioniq lease runs out in December 2021!😂🤣

A range of reasons....mostly that we do love the Kona, and with it only now having about 11k miles, with little growth there, there seems no point rushing to a change.

Wanted the MAX all along, finally given up the ghost.
Only slim chance was that VW UK might have had a change of heart after the £40k barrier went.
Definitely not happening, even Ireland will get the MAX! 😡

Good luck to those who keep the faith, I hope VW do you proud: who knows, maybe we will be back in a couple of years!
Yes, a bit of dismay doing this, but with a heavy heart, (as I know we have all invested a lot of time/effort with the ID3), I've just pulled out of my prebooker for the 1st Edition. Reasons? A combination of things really. Too little comfort from too little communication with us customers,. Uncertainty on price, and finance options, Software concerns, and seeing Battery Life looking more pessimistic since march! And delivery being in the autumn for UK Prebookers when a 2nd wave is likely, and car will sit on the drive - good for getting to know the car, but not for driving about. Which has meant that by looking at other cars has led me astray and leaving a purchase to 2021 spring at the earliest. I wish you Prebookers all the best and I hope the ID3 is a success for VW. For those Prebookers in the frame, I did see on opting out just now, a delivery date of October '20 in the small print blurb. I'll still be around these forums, though, and contributing where I can. Enjoy your EV, whatever car you deside on.

I think you are taking the sensible approach, wait until 2021 then spec the right car for you an ID.3 or something different. VW Portugal have sent me some info and news letter every month, so I am quite happy with them. BTW I did an interview with Chris from Battery Life where we talk about delivery dates, you can check it out here:

That list of pre-bookers is way out of date. I was told by VW that the UK allocation was 1500 cars. I payed my deposit on the first day of ordering but cancelled in October 2019. Reason - having to wait at least 18 months for the car and the cost. Likely cost of £3900 - about £1500 less than a Model 3.
So I'm now driving a Zoe50 GTLine - cost £25000. The ID.3 should be a better car - £15K better - I'm not sure.

GT Line for £25K? Can only find Iconic for that price.

Mmm...GT Line starts from £29,695 after grant, according to the Renault site....even the entry Play starts over £26k. Find it hard to believe anyone is offering discounts on EVs yet!

Check prices on carwow you can get GT Line for just over £25k and not a stretch to get even more discount while dealerships are under pressure to shift units.
Also not really sure why you’re calling him a liar. If he said he paid £25k why claim otherwise when you are not in possession of the facts?
