Interesting comments by the reviewer there:
06:48

I already mentioned it, we're not allowed to show the dashboard. Only describe it. And I've done that, but when the camera's were installed,


06:55

people of Volkswagen tipped me. They asked me if I was in the Geneva, which I was. They asked me if I saw Seat's El Born Concept, which I saw.

07:05

According to the people of Volkswagen, the dashboard in that Seat looks exactly like the dashboard in this car. I checked, and they were right.

Had an email earlier from VW with a questionnaire at the bottom, made it plain that i’m only interested in the ‘Max’ 1st edition.

I suggest those that also do not want the ‘Plus’ do the same, I doubt if it will make a difference but if you don't ask...

Got a funny feeling that if we had of been offered the MAX in the UK it would have been over the £40k "Luxury" VED level.

Maybe VW are more up to speed with VED than, say, Tesla, and didn't want to start off their push to electric on the wrong foot!😐

Over £40k for the iD3. A long-range Tesla Model 3 would be in seriously consideration.

It won't make any difference. Even Norway is only getting the Plus edition, and they are a massive market.

It's only the UK that is limited to the mid range spec. All 1st edition cars are mid sized battery but LHD markets have a choice of trim levels, or they did when the order books opened.
Neither hear nor there, but i believe Austria only get the MAX!

MAX would breach the £40k VED, that's the probable reason.

Ok, I have ambivalent feelings re my cancellation (don't like the front end, will probably be too expensive, going to wait for the El-Born I think)

(11 out of 55 cancelled = 20%, with another 11 wanting the Max only so potentially will cancel later, not a great start if 40% of pre bookers cancel)
