New to the Volvo XC40 Forum

Post by VolvoFan » Fri May 13, 2016 10:53 am

Hi,
Really looking forward to the new XC40 and I'm hoping for a release next year.

I'm currently an XC60 owner, love the new XC90 but it's too big and expensive for us. Hoping the XC40 will fit the bill quite nicely.

Good to see there is a likely reveal / concept showing this week.

Greetings from Bromley in the southeast.
After kicking myself for not committing in January and then finding out orders for the First Edition were closed, I got a call from a local dealer today informing me that a slot had become available!! Needless to say I've taken the plunge 😊

I work at a dealership in Chelmsford, Essex and we have some left, but only because my Sales Manager is a legend. lol. What colour are you going for?

Hi there fellow Bromlian! I have been speaking to a local dealer too! I was told that there are no FE’s left. He said that Volvo were holding a big meeting last Monday to decide if they were going to produce some more. Perhaps you got one of these. When is your estimated delivery?
Seems to me that Volvo have been overwhelmed with orders.

Ha - I'm in Bromley too - I was the one who got told that I couldn't have my spec that I ordered back in late January and so kicked up a fuss. The dealer has now told me that they will get me a MY19 T5 FE with all the options with no price hike. Delivery late May/June he 'thinks'. I'm still a bit jittery as to whether they are on the ball or not, but we will see...

I can get you a MY18.5, delivery due very beginning of May in First Edition Models, either Petrol or Diesel and you can choose your colour.
MY 19's are looking like July.
I can only get 19" wheels though

Thanks, but no - I specced the 20" and the headlamp cleaning system.
