Additional factory capacity impacting yet?

Post by Blastpipe » Sun Sep 16, 2018 11:55 am

Are the lead times beginning to shorten yet on the XC40? Sounded like factory capacity was going to be increased which ought to have had a knock on effect...but then demand might have risen to counterract it.

Anyone noticed any change?

Thanks BP

I see your delivery date has slipped by a week, when did Alan give you this update?
I spoke to him only last week and I was told it's currently 2nd October, and he was hoping it may come forward.

1st sept was when I spoke to him last. We better get some discounts off some extras or freebies for our wait.

I would expect you to get your car first as you did order 2 weeks before me
