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!
T4 Inscription: Pine Grey, Blond interior + Intellisafe Surround + 360 camera + rear tinted windows mid-Sep. Estimated delivery early Feb 2019.

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 T5 R-Design Pro with most of the bells and whistles in early May ‘18 and expected delivery is end of Jan ‘19.
Here’s hoping that doesn’t slip as I can’t wait!!

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.

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!
