Given that Renault make it technologically easy for you to “buy out” a battery lease for free, I can’t imagine it being a big job to “unlock” the extra 10kWh!

The estimated delivery on the website seems to have changed again, from beginning of August to 4 weeks for the ZE50s. Hopefully it doesn't mean the delivery has been delayed again.

Maybe just setting expectations for new subscribers, rather than those already on waitlist.

If I have to wait until September I will expect a 70 plate (maybe that’s what they want, could be better for future resale)

I'm starting to lose my patience with them now. Expected in March, then May, then 'we'll let you know by the end of June'. End of July became 'end of July/ beginning of August' and it now seems to be more the latter than the former, and perhaps not even that. My last contact with them was 'we'll call you in the next couple of weeks to book a delivery date', and that couple of weeks has now expired.

I can cut them a lot of slack for the difficulties of COVID, but their communication has been woeful.

On the community forum I’ve asked if these revised delivery dates apply to those on the 250 odd waitlist, or and hopefully, new customers signing up today.

Just found an email from ONTO that was sent yesterday. It explains a few differences between the Iconic and GT Line trim levels. It clearly states that deliveries are starting in August, although not whether it’s at the end or the beginning.

Just rang them and got straight through. ‘Ironing our some last minute logistics’ was the gist of it. Phone calls to arrange delivery expected toStart Wednesday 29th and deliveries commencing the following week.

i tried to get a firmer date, but it was like nailing treacle to the wall.

I just wish they would be a bit more proactive and give people a heads-up when dates are not going to be met. I’m renting at the moment and it’s a right PITA, extending or re-renting a week or two at a time with no clue if I’m going to be stuck with 2 cars or none

Welcome back! Someone else recently got a Leaf. And yet they have been very difficult to get hold of. Are these new ones, or returns?

I went for the blue as well. It was black/ white/ grey/ blue/ red, IIRC.

Forgot to ask if they come with a granny cable. I'm assuming not?

ONTO provide a granny cable with all their vehicles!

You should maintain your position and end up top of the list. That will mean you will get the first available car when you tell them that you’re ready.
