I ordered an Inscription in early May and have consistently seen increasing lead times since then with 'December/January as best guess' the latest. Hard to understand the large variances shown in these results and also why lead times for orders already in are getting longer. Surely increased demand should only be reflected in longer lead times at order stage unless Volvo are actually disorganised in terms of, for example, their supply of components?

Is anyone aware of any official comment from Volvo Head Office in explanation?

Just had a delivery date from my dealer for a Inscription Pro T4 ordered July 13th - Jan 2019 :(.

They did offer to cancel without loss but no chance. They did also try to say they would not be able to meet the offer at the time of purchase for the part ex on my V40 but a few strong words changed their minds.

From Belgium, too - Tervuren
Which dealer did you order from Gloubi? I ordered same time as you with Volvo ACB Schaerbeek just after the January motor show (T4 R-Design, bursting blue, many options). Delivery estimate was first by end June now dealer won't even give me an estimate! I've asked him to chase the order with the factory and even e-mailed him letter sent out by Dutch dealers found here https://www.volvo-forum.nl/topic.php?t=77975&page=12 entry #343 but still no feedback... In fact he seems to have stopped returning calls, full stop. Really satisfactory customer experience. Is your dealer any better?

Amazing! Finally heard from my salesman. Belgian dealers hadn't heard about latest developments explained in the letter sent in the Netherlands. He's been in touch with Volvo Cars who say my xc40 will now arrive at dealership by mid-September. Good start to the weekend.

Not happy.
Ordered in April 2018
Said delivery mid December 2018
Revised to 1st week October
Now being told the build week is November and possibly 12 weeks to deliver here from then.
That will make my order 10 months plus -- now thinking of cancelling order.
It is a contract hire vehicle.

EDIT PANIC OVER
Delivery confirmed as October '18 and maybe even a little sooner.
When they did the revision update on the order they altered the delivery date but didn't remove the old build date.
Good news.
