I ordered in November an Enyaq 60kwh and almost 6 months later the dealer told me Skoda are stopping production (due to changes in government subsidy policy and shortage of components - all production shifted to the 80kwh model) and I will not get the Enyaq in 2022 and no idea when beyond that it could materialise. They therefore want to back out of the trade in price for my car. Altogether it would not be the end of the world, except I will now lose the government subsidy. The dealer is offering to keep the deal open (perhaps the government will extend the subsidy beyond 9 months, to ??? how long) but cannot commit to what they would offer me as a trade in. Anybody else got the same issue? I realise the world is in chaos and car manufacturers are suffering, but the only party to suffer a loss here will be the final customer, when I thought we had a contract in place. Obviously there are some clauses in the terms and conditions that allow Skoda to discontinue 'making goods of that type' and others that allow the dealer to pay less if delivery extends beyond the original estimate. For anybody out there thinking of ordering the 60kwh model - do not, keep your money in the bank.
WE HAVE THE SAME ISSUE BUT THEY HAVE OUR VEHICLE WE ORDERED INNOVEMBER 21 BUT THEY SAY WE ARE NO LONGER ELIGIBLE FOR THE GOVERNMENT GRANT IS THIS CORRECT CAN ANYONE TELL ME?

According to the gov.uk web site the car must be delivered within 9 months of the time the dealer registered for the grant or it will be rejected. We are in the same position and have just been told that our Enyaq EV 60 Is in transit to UK so hopefully have it some time in June.
Have you spoken to the dealership ? Are they confirming the grant still stands for that vehicle?
