I ordered on 10th September. The dealer tells me every week that the car is on track to be with them by the end of October. I hope it turns out to be correct because the wife and I are sharing one car at the moment and it is bl**dy inconvenient! But I think 6 - 7 weeks from order to handover seems a little wishfull thinking to me. I was never given a "build date" as such.

It's odd that JLR are still quoting at least 7 to 8 week delivery times for orders, and yet they have just put Castle Bromwich on a 3 day week because of lack of customers. Still 8 weeks is a lot better than my XE order, which I placed in mid March and had to wait until mid August to get it.

I imagine the unexpectedly slow delivery time results from the need to have all the ordered options available at the at right moment. Perhaps a simple set of options would mean a quick delivery. The Jag Options System ( to give it a title) is very complex, and these days manufacturers operate the "Just in Time" method to keep stocking costs as low as possible, Jaguar no doubt included.

I'm just about to order a new XE which will have a slightly unusual mix of options - we'll see if it's a quick or a slow job! In my case, Christmas and the New Year may well get in the way, too. If that means that the car is 2019 Reg, then I'm not too bothered.

I ordered on 21st Aug. I was told end Nov/start Dec. On hearing of Jaguar going on 3 day week I asked for update as delivery delay meant winter and made putting off to 1 March a sensible way forward. On checking they told me 2nd Nov. I got a call circa 12th Oct that build had moved up with delevery to showroom on 26th Oct. A week later I got a call telling me that had moved to 22nd Oct. I pick it up on Wednesday. So for me it has been a 9 week wait.

I am pretty sure Lookers sat on the order while they worked the 1st Aug delivery rush. Not an issue as the salesman had said it would take time to place the order as everyone was busy.

Hope this helps you Davey.

I'm going to use the words "on the whole" and then "generally" as I know there are always exceptions........ :D
But generally most people have a wait of up to 10 weeks, on the whole.
Both mine were about 9-10 weeks and often dates actually come forward which is nice.
The exceptions seem to be when the cars are leased and the dealer/and/or lease company let things slip or with private sales sometimes when the dealer cocks things up and then tries to cover up mistakes they have made by telling lies.
Big fat ones!
