    I believe the premium se has a heat pump and the newer model doesn’t. Heat pump will help with efficiency in colder weather.

    But overall the ultimate is a bargain 🙂

    The kona ultimate retail price has in reality increased by £3k after the axing of the government grant and is now nearly £8k dearer than the premium ( the premium se not available on the configurator now ). It’s a huge difference in price so they may be experiencing ( or anticipating )low sales on the ultimate trim so they are trying to drum up some business by getting the ultimate on the road through motability.Seems like one of those too good to be true prices to me. I would pile in now if I could but have another 2 months to wait and don’t expect this deal to be around by then.

    The two cars with pics on the motability search engine are the Model Year 20.5, the two introduced today are the Model Year 21 cars, I doubt you’d be able to find a Premium SE now anyway, I struggled to and that was about 6 weeks ago.

    The Ultimate trim has actually had its price cut by nearly £6k, my Premium SE invoice was over £42k, the replacement after they removed the grant had its price cut to around £37k

    Main difference between the Premium SE and the ultimate is you lose the battery heater, but gain an electric tilt/slide sunroof and Apple CarPlay is now cordless.

    I suspect the price shown might be wrong, wouldn’t be at all surprised to see it changing to £1499, still a bargain for a car that has just about everything included as standard.

    Ok thanks Intranicity I just took the figures straight from their configuration site which says  premium from £29300 and ultimate from £37200. The ultimate would be an absolute steal for £499.

    Does anyone know if this revised Hyundai Kona comes with rear led lights? It looked really tacky having front led lights but then using halogen lamps at the back for the signal lights. So wondering if they’ve gone full led?

    I’ve got the Premium SE and that’s full LED all round so doubt it’s changed

    Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace 3 cars removed. Production is full and cars are stock only. It says so on the VW website: https://www.volkswagen.co.uk/new/tiguan-allspace.html

    Presumably the next time we see it, will be in a facelifted form.

    I’m sure the facelift will bring with it another plus thousand on the AP and again can’t help feeling that manufactures are using Motability as a dumping ground for old models.

    Back to the drawing board for me with time running out on my ordering date in July with the pool of seven seats cars or at least those capable of carrying a fully assembled pavement scooter getting smaller and smaller as the days go by.

    Would the Seat Tarraco FR TSi DSG 4drive not interest you, ChrisK? I’m looking at that myself but 4K ap is putting me off.

    HI Moreton5

    I have the Tarraco in my list too but I’m beginning to wonder exactly how many of these WAG cars are available through Motability.

    They may well be in the Motability search engine as indeed the Allspace is still there today but I’ve been having a look around this morning and configured a Skoda Kodiaq and after inputting all the guff it said at the end “Orders from stock only for this model” so it sort of gives me the feeling the Tarraco would be the same although it says nothing on the Seat site.

    I picked up a new Ford yesterday. Chatting to the dealer, he expects a fair few Fords to drop off in the coming week due to the chip shortage.

    Mini and Jaguar Land Rover closed at the moment as well, more Manufacturers will unfortunatly follow,lead times will get much longer until 2022 thats what they are saying,and could lead to car increases due to semiconductor price rises

    At least there not using the Covid excuse but odd they should remove cars just because of shortages of parts as all that does is leave us in suspense whether or not that it will return and when it does return adds to the many, many, many months we already have to wait. All we need is honesty from the manufactures and the dealer and if they say the wait is this long or that long at least we can make up our minds if its worth waiting for.

    My take is they got loads of orders to fill and again Motability including us are second class customers and are first to the back of the queue and instead of getting it in the neck for late deliveries, take the cars of the scheme and at least their happy.

    Our local Volvo dealer told me last week that Volvo UK had instructed dealers not to take any new orders from Motability customers due to semiconductor supply issues. Other Volvo dealerships are not saying this, so I have raised a complaint with Volvo UK as this looks like anti-Motability dealer BS. Our local BMW dealer (who, by contrast, have been superb) have had their X1 orders pushed back by 5 weeks due to the shortage of a component. Dealer not sure if this is semiconductor related but is going to try to find out next week after the Bank Holiday.
