Dunno about that. Apart from one or two smaller electric cars which are still a match for their equivalents, they are blowing ice away! I am no electric fan but performance is not a problem for them. That new Tesla S 4wd is more than a match for C63 and M3/4I contacted the editor of 'Autocar' who contacted Ford.
Answer was that the auto box had a homologation issue with regard to emissions and that it 'may' be available around the middle of next year. As the ST is the only model to use that 7-speed box I wasn't putting any money on that!
A friend (who was a homologation engineer for Volvo) reckoned this was a valid reason.
According to my dealer (who is a 'mate') there are several model variants which are no longer available due to emissions requirements.
The Leon Cupra that I've ordered is being replaced next year with a lower powered hybrid version...
Never mind - we'll soon be running around in cars powered by AA batteries, with a 0-6- measured in days and a top speed measured in feet per fortnight!!!
Good job I've still got the TVR in the garage (and still (just) young enough to drive it....)
The problem they all have now is next years 95grm whole range limit along with strict individual limits. They cannot afford hardly any high emitters. Its become obvious that the years of fiddling and claiming autos (mostly slush boxes) were more economical has been turned in its head with wltp. They are far dirtier and less economical especially in Fords for some reason.
