Hi guy's,

Has anyone got a 145 PS ID.3 and want want to share any comments ?

My dealer is telling me that only way to get a ID.3 using the government £2.5k grant is to go for either the Life with 207 PS or the Family with 145 PS.

The car I test drove was a Business 207 PS, and I loved that, but just a tad concerned the 145 PS won't be as good.

Would appreciate any comments.

If the original list price (doesn't include extras like alloy wheels) is above £35K then there is no eligibility for the EV grant of £2.5K

Yes the wife has just ordered a family performance pro in blue met, derry wheels and mats and we were told it qualifies for the grant, as does the configurator on the vw site

Why cannot you get the 150kW Family Pro Performance?

The 107kW Family Pro is quicker from 0-60 than most ICE cars anyway.

Change dealer as he does not know what he is talking about!

Your dealer is plain wrong. All currently orderable ID.3’s except the Max and Tour are currently eligible for the £2500 grant.

I say currently because who knows what Rishi is going to do with EV grants later this month…
ID.3 Tour 77kWh Pro S 204PS Tour in Manganese Grey
Ordered 12-Jul-2021 (wk28)
Order no 31384xxx received 26-Jul (wk30)
Confirmed build wk40 received 18-Sep (wk37)
Delivery expectation … nobody knows, not even VW!

We have two Family Pro Performance 204 PS and both qualified for the grant.

Perhaps your dealer has a Life 204 and a Family 145 to sell?
ID3 Family, Glacier White, Loen alloys.

That's a very valid statement. In my limited experience of VW dealers, none of them know much about anything. They could quite easily be selling ice creams and not hi-tech cars.

My Dealer was totally confused between engine power and battery size. Thank goodness I'd done my homework!

And I got the Grant
Life Pro-Performance, Stonewashed Blue, East Derry Alloys, 54KWh battery

Fun fact, according to the many minutes of youtube watched, the 145ps has the same electric motor and torque as the 204ps version. It's just limited by software apparently.
