Re: Build date

Post by morini » Tue Oct 23, 2018 9:36 am

Arrived in work at 8:45 this morning after my usual Tuesday long commute (Mon / Fri WFH, Tuesday - Thursday on client site many miles away) and there was an email from dealer saying my car will be arriving with them this afternoon. Six weeks to the day since ordering. Very pleased with that, waited 16 weeks for the wife's car to get built / delivered.

Current New Order build Dates

Post by pauljobr » Wed Oct 24, 2018 3:57 pm

I have been speaking with a dealer in regards to replacing my current XE with a new one and he mentioned that the information passed to him is that currently the next load date for XE builds is January.
I am presuming in discussion with him that the 0% offer is popular and with the current working restrictions in place by JLR it has pushed all the dates back. I have been assured though that upon ordering now even if the build/delivery and registration date is next year the 0% will be honored.
New MY20 builds are still planned for April so I will still get an MY19 car which is no problem to me as long as I get the 0%. But it is quite a wait now then for a new car build.

I was quoted 10-12 weeks, from 4/9/18, meaning end of November, i picked up the XE 300 sport (factory build), yesterday, a whole month earlier than expected. So Jan 19 may become dec 18.

Ordered mine today and earlier this week when discussing it I was told I would be looking at early Jan, same thing another dealer told me, but on ordering the date I have been given for now is end of Feb.

I'm guessing this is the dealer managing expectations, but prepared for anything.

Hi, after speaking to the dealer he says his branch have 20+ orders waiting in the queue for a build slot and without actually confirming it looks like February his advice is wait and reg it in march ,get my deposit back or look for a nearly new xe. 😭

Hold out Davey. You never know what will happen as it makes sense for JLR to plan orders all in one go so that they can make efficiencies in production rather than planning order by order. So when they do draw in the new batch, you don't know you won't be eying it earlier.

Also, if it's the car/spec you want, it still will be even after you settle for something else.

Update from my dealer is that he reckons the order call may take place next week. From my understanding, this takes place once per month where all the orders are drawn from the dealer's pools and put into build slots. I believe that usually they plan a month ahead, so November's call would usually be to populate build slots in December, enabling them to plan their production and update the EDIs to the supplier base.

Of course this would depend on how many build slots they have versus how many orders are in the pool as to whether or not it would be the following month or later.

Fingers crossed for all of us who have an order pending that it's an early December build. :D
