I have a V2 E-Boost reserved, subject to taking a local test drive this Saturday and wanting to upgrade my ID3 204ps Life. It'll be available next weekend to pick up if I don't back out.

The ID3 in sports mode annoyingly behaves like it is in B mode (regen as soon as you lift off the accelerator, even if you're in D mode) - can anyone in an E-Boost confirm that when running Cupra mode, the car behaves like it's in B mode even when its in D mode? I think that would annoy me a lot.

Only speaking from my short test drive of an e-Boost, and haven't driven the ID3, but using Cupra mode didn't apply the same regen as B mode. B mode is a very noticeable slow-down when you lift off the accelerator, whereas I don't remember much (certainly not significant) braking being applied when lifting off in the Cupra/Sport modes

That's good to know, and i'll confirm on my Saturday test drive that isn't too far away! I am hoping that it doesn't do as the ID3 in Sport mode - It makes no sense at all to have B type regen forced upon you when you're in D mode, but for whatever reason, the ID3 does exactly that.
