Goes to show they are not trying to profiteer. If the bulk of the parts are already paid for and available for the performance models why increase the price?
Far fewer people are buying the Performance compared to the Dual Motor so lower price increase.

Profiteering like mofos but they need to as there may be leaner times ahead as supply increases and disposable incomes drop.

As a business though don't you get that's money down the drain when the business could have pcp/outright purchased and then at 3yrs sold it to bring down the TCO over the period?
Say it's £500pcm, that's £18k over 3yrs so even if you sold the m3 for £20k at the end you'd be break even on the balloon payment almost but let's be brutally honest, they are selling at 3yr old for the price they cost when originally purchased if not a bit more due to demand...
So it's entirely possible the company could have ended up spending nothing on the term once the car is sold.
Due to the mental market conditions my ZS EV has depreciated by £91 per month over the past 31mths/35k miles (cash purchase).

Pretty sure leasing was about £300/mth when I bought it.

Leasing works best when supply is fat and manufacturers throw in hidden discounts (like the 2018 deal for 225xe at £229/mth 1+17 & 1+23)
