Seems waiting times are shortening for those ordering now (in the UK?)- I ordered my T4 Inscription mid-Sept and just called the dealer to have them confirm 2nd Feb delivery. Final stretch!

Lead times do seem a bit random. Mine was ordered mid August 2018 with estimated delivery 1 June 2019. Settled in for a long wait, then in late November 2018 got a call to say arriving in a few days! It may be that some trim level/engine combinations are quicker than others. My dealer had no specific explanation other than Volvo were catching up with demand.

I’ve been waiting patiently since early May and my estimated build date is still a week away 😕
Hopefully I’ll have it in early February.
I guess there must be something in my order that’s slowing it down as 9 months looks to be at the longer end according to the poll.
Anyhoo... I’ve got my fingers crossed!!

Ordered this week. R Design D4 and told end of March. Is this realistic?
I was in a dealership haggling over a D3 R Design and was told it would be March/April if I placed an order this week. Stressed I was in no real rush for it so he didn't need to put an overly optimistic slant on it.

It has already been put back to mid late April after three days!

I ordered my XC40 in the beginning of August and given a estimated delivery date of the end of March 2019, I had a call a couple of months ago to say that the delivery date had been brought forward to the 29th January, this was good news and just had confirmation that the target delivery was still on.
Just a few weeks away from getting my new toy!

Ordered mine at a similar time to you - predicted date was feb/march but might come forward a bit. Currently on track for late Feb so will get the 19 plate in March. Not many weeks to go now hurrah.

Finally got an update from my dealer after unanswered emails and several unreturned calls: build date 28th Jan with delivery to the dealer 6th Feb. Should be ready to pick up that weekend. Ordered 2nd week of Sept, so on track pending last min delays.

Interestingly dealer said if we ordered now the waiting times indicate May as soonest delivery date. Apparently there's another recent surge of interest in the car.

Ordered my XC40 T4 r-design in August 18 and expecting it to be registered in March 19, I was offered by the dealer to take delivery in late February and have £500 off accessories but declined to get it on a 19 plate, 7 month wait so hope it will be worth it..
