Re: Delays in deliveries - October 2020

Update (Tuesday, 13th Oct): Finally got an answer from the LR franchise: Yes, my car was built some weeks ago. No PHEVs are being delivered and all are being stored local to the factory. The reason: As some have speculated, it's due to emission regulations. (I assume this means the testing is still ...

Re: Delays in deliveries - October 2020

Oh dear popped on to the forum and wondered if would see a thread like this. I had my DS P300 on order since 1st June and was told delivery would be this week. It’s all gone very quiet from both the lease company as the dealer hasn’t got any updates. I’ve actually spent £700 get a charging point fi...

Re: Delays in deliveries - October 2020

Update on my ordered p300e: Sadly nothing of significance to report. As suggested I contacted the LR order line and spoke to a delightful lady. She was surprised about the delays and told me she'd get back to me once she'd spoken to both my franchise and LR HQ. I received a 'No news' email from her ...

Re: Delays in deliveries - October 2020

Same here Simon, have they even built a production PHEV yet? I personally doubt it, reason being my dealer hasn’t been able to place the order with LR yet! (They told me on the 23/9 that 21MY orders were still not being accepted). As VDS recently posted the WTLP figures are only estimates, this is ...

Re: Delays in deliveries - October 2020

It's strange there's still no 'real' YouTube reviews for DS or Evoque PHEV? I'm reading about delayed P300e orders on the Evoque Owners forum. Normally a long time before customers get their cars YouTube reviewers are given them! The only content is mashed up advertising videos, nothing real? Yes, ...

Re: Delays in deliveries - October 2020

I’d be pushing the dealer for exactly why in your shoes. There is no excuse if complete , unless of course a delivery backlog in these covid times. Either way they need to be up front and open. Agreed. I've emailed them and await a response. For the interest of others, I'll post on here how they re...

Delays in deliveries - October 2020

I ordered a p300e (PHEV) in spring of this year. I was initially told they'd start making them August, for a late August delivery. Then I was told in late September that my vehicle had been made, and delivery expected on or before 2nd October. That shifted to 9th October a week later. Today I've bee...

Re: DS PHEV.....not yet

They are scheduled to go into full production Week 3/September. There is a strong possibility, based on low existing current order banks, that this date may be pulled forward, depending on summer shutdown and union negotiation between now and August. Given recent events, there is talk there that sh...

Re: DS PHEV.....not yet

Ordered my Disco Sport S p300e from Guy Salmon (Sheffield). Currently watching all news from Halewood factory. Hoping it won't be too long.
