Re: Lead time/waiting time

My PHEV order through Inchcape our Leasing Supplier has recently been revised to add in another month (to 24th July), so I assume the demand is exceeding the supply since the government taxation of company cars and emissions changed.

Its better to have a separate item for the MPG rather than have it on this 'Lead Time' topic. I'm sure most people look at this topic to know about the lead in and delivery time rather than mpg - which is an interesting separate topic, perhaps.

I have been advised by our lasing company Leaseplan that the Niro PHEV with metallic paint will be a December 2018 delivery !
That seems rather a long wait !

See another parallel thread,

Have not got to the bottom of it but I gather a product announcement on updated models is due. That might explain the delays with the current PHEV?
Last car a Hyundai IX35 diesel. Next car may well be a Niro.

I read an article in a weekend paper that manufacturers have a backlog with getting cars certified through new emissions tests and that is causing a knock-on effect on deliveries. But ironic for a PHEV if its the case.

Hi all, new member here. Unfortunately i’m coming up against the same problem. Ordered a new Hybrid Niro 4 in early April. Initially given an estimated 12 week delivery time. Well I’m now being told “they’re still building it” and they can’t give me any ETA. Am assuming that’s dealer speak for they haven’t got a clue and Kia aren’t telling them anything. All very worrying. For all I know they haven’t even started the build.
Have a sinking feeling we’ll be looking at another 3-4 months allowing for shipping time.
