And a hike of the price to take the nice ones over £40k so you pay loads more tax.

I own a 2022 Ultimate Hybrid with Tech Pack - in Red (best colour).
Also have two motorcycles. Honda CB1300 and Honda CBF1000 (also red, of course).

Worth a check Alan and I certainly haven't, but If you wanted an Ultimate HEV in red, retail is £39640. On the road its £40k plus. I believe Luxury car tax is based on list price not OTR so you might just get under the 40k threshold. You certainly wouldn't if you wanted a metallic paint finish. Dealers via Carwow are already offering £4400 off the facelift model so discounts are going in the right direction already. Are there any actual cars in showrooms yet, as I would like to see one in the flesh and take it out for a drive.

I think the spec sheet shows metallic paint as a no cost option unless i misread it which could be the case.

Why oh why do manufactures list these cars over the £40k and then discount it below. Just reduce the list price below the £40k from the get go and I'm sure they'd sell more.

Scroll down to the bottom of the spec sheet. Non metallic 'Engine red' paint is the standard no cost option (see last line of 'Exterior' section of spec sheet).
<<Update>>
I've just revisited the spec sheet and indeed there is a contradiction. The page below would intimate that metallic is a no cost option. On the other pages it would suggest otherwise as its even stating the prices. I'm confused .....

I am only interested in the HEV with all the gadgets - so that is over £40K now.

When I got mine in dark teal I expected to pay a premium for the colour -website said there should have been- but it didn’t come up and when I asked the answer came back that they weren’t, at the time, charging extra for any of the colours….🤷🏻‍♂️

What extra gadgets Alan? Tech Pack no longer exists as far as I can see at least from the spec list. The Ultimate HEV is pretty well Spec'd by default including surround view etc. You can have metallic paint and a different interior colour but I'm not seeing any extra gadgets you can add as extras. Have you seen something I've missed?

Result..... its not unusual for manufacturers and/or dealers to offer extras towards the end of a models life cycle or when they need to sell more cars. Metallic paint seems to be a favourite extra to entice buyers. Out of interest, did Metallic paint show up as a line item on your invoice for the car?
