Volvo are replacing my XC40 due to seemingly permeant computer and electrical faults, not taking orders at moment until 2020 model ready. Hopefully early March delivery. Currently got a Mercedes courtesy of Volvo as mine is in the garage yet again.

Maybe less than 8 months, but it will be definitely be over 8 months (about 8 months and a half exactly).

Mine should arrive mid February and I could have had £500 of accessories to have it before March But declined the offer as I would prefer to have it on a 19 plate..

In Italy lead time is improving quickly. Looks like Volvo has suspended the production of the V40 to increase the production of the XC40.

Hi all

First time poster...

Bought my XC40 (T4 R-Design) at the end of September with delivery due mid to late December.

I had a call from my dealer reasonably soon after I bought the car that the delivery date had slipped to March. I wonder if the dealer was a little loose with the timings they gave me.

Anyway, I eventually got the "order recevied" email from Volvo late November, a full 2 months after I'd ordered.

I haven't had the "your car is in production email" yet but the dealer still say's we're on track for the March delivery.

Can I ask, when you were notified your XC40 was in production, was it a fairly quick turnaround time from there on as at the moment, I cannot see the keys being in my hands withing the next two weeks!

Thanks

Hello,
I didn't get any notification when the car entered production, just when the cars was delivered to the dealer.
As i lived in Belgium, it was really fast though, around 10 days from production to collection.
