Anyone else waiting for a new car?

Post by Walter23Y » Fri Jun 25, 2021 3:11 pm

Ordered a R Dynamic S Plus beginning of May. Was originally told build date July 2nd delivery July 16th. Order was then cancelled end of May and changed to a Urban edition (no extra costs to us thankfully.

Spoke with dealer yesterday who informed me that they have 2 cars on order for me to see what comes first. They are still building MY21 for next couple of weeks.

He thinks we will have a car end of September.

I know it can’t be helped but I’m so impatient.

When I was waiting for an oil change a couple of weeks ago, the sales chap I had a brief chat with told me that they weren’t building MY22 until September?!

I've read that Halewood is closed for another 8 weeks.

People on here and the DS Facebook group have reported that their cars are now available, or the status has changed in the last few days to ‘in build’ so I doubt it’s on a shutdown.

Placed my order in Apr with original delivery estimate of end of July. Moved to end of September after MY21 changed to MY22. Now informed by dealer that petrol engine variants are to be discontinued so I need to go back and change my order! Looks like I may need to go back to Mercedes Benz at this rate.

You can still build to order a P250 R-Dynamic.

Just checked with my dealer… P200 and P250 are still available on SE model and above. He said the configurator on the website has been updated to reflect the change so if you are not sure whether your order is affected try building up the spec on the website.

It appears that JLR are trying to limit the lower end of the range.

Make sense as they are still having semiconductor supply issues so want to prioritise higher margin orders.

Unless I’m missing something it looks like the P200 has disappeared altogether from the configurator?

Surprising, quite a few people on here seemed to be ordering the P200.
