Build Times

Post by Ks2 » Mon Aug 03, 2020 1:23 am

Does anyone know the current build times . I have a T5 Recharge PHEV Inscription Pro on order sine mid May and was told early September, however many delays seem to be happening from other posts.

Hi there,
It’s three months.
I ordered my B4P right at the beginning of July and was given end of September for delivery. Whether that will happen though, is anyone’s guess. I’ve a friend who’s been given the same lead time at a different dealer.
With your being the Recharge though, perhaps they’ve got a bigger backlog.
TBH, I was surprised when I was given September as the delivery. I’d have thought longer. Well we all know how truthful car dealers can be.
Waiting for:-
Engine - B4P
Trim - Inscription Pro
Paint - Glacier Silver
Interior - Red oxide leather
Delivery due - End Sept.
**Weekly countdown. - 5, 4, 3, 2, :roll: 6, 5

I ordered mine (B4P Inscription Pro) on 25th July. The dealer has told me the car should arrive with them by 12th September, with delivery to me by 18th September.

Build times must have been improved, our B4P ordered on 1st March is due at the dealers early September. Obviously delays due to the factory closure and model year switch over. May also have been some delays on this updated drivetrain. Sounds like they are catching up on the backlog now.

I ordered my T5 phev inscription early march. Slipped to 4 Sep delivery to the dealer. Blame Covid, MY 21 switch and allegedly some delays in parts to factory. Still, the price was frozen as quoted on the order so can't complain too much.

I called my dealer yesterday to get an update. Ordered PHEV Inscription Pro on 15th June and they said it is still on track to be with them on 4th September and then to me the following week.

So close and yet so far. At the dealers for 10th Sept but they want 10-14 days to PDI it :roll:
