Won't mess up the poll stats with mine as I had taken a pre-booked slot but, should be able to collect mine this Saturday (30/3).

FWIW, I think the original order date for my slot was 6/11/2018 so, delays seem a bit less than they once were.

I was consistently told, from placing order in December, that my car should arrive in UK by late March, with collection possible from early April.

Incidentally, no emails from Volvo, just regular calls from dealer - though I now see that the Volvo website was updated with the VIN on 21/3

I ordered mine on 3rd April, and got an email from my salesperson telling me it's due next Monday (presumably 3rd June, as Monday coming is a bank holiday). That's much quicker than I thought - I wonder if they got a cancelled slot or something? I was originally planning to take delivery in September, but I'll (hopefully) have the car next month instead.

Just saw your update on the introduction thread. The early arrival of your car is great news to me. I ordered mine on 4 May and was quoted end of June delivery and for pick up first couple of weeks in July. Planning to hand back the X1 end of June so hoping it arrives a couple of weeks early!

Could be down to particular engine or options which is causing the delay.

Possibly or maybe a BS'ing salesman who knew we had a deadline and wanted a sale?

I ordered 10th April. Popped into dealership last Sunday (‘just passing’).... Date on order form stated delivery 31/7.... Forward planning showed build date of 2nd Sept with delivery on 12th.... 5 months... OMG... Hoping that date comes forward substantially! (Date should come forward anyway as FP always does a worst case build date...)

Part of the issue may turn out to be that it’s a MY20 car

Had it confirmed that ours has slipped by 2 weeks, not best pleased. 10th July it’s now due to the dealer. 😒
