However, I would encourage all who are interested in the new car to watch tonight, as we'll be going over the confirmed specifications, and clearing up any confusion that may still be around. Any questions we can't answer today will be collated and answered as soon as the press day arrives!
Looking forward to the podcast later...a couple of questions if you happen to know and could answer now (or in the podcast)?...
  1. When is the press day going to be?
  2. Is the new model likely to be available to order from 1st November or is this just when dealers are expecting demo cars and prices to be announced?
Thanks.

The first batch of face lifted models are already on there way.
Prices should be released in November and orders can be made straight away.
The first cars SHOULD get to the dealers in December.
Colours available are, white / black / red / silver and a new shade of blue.
The larger HV battery pack of 71.2 kw's will be the only available size at first.
