Unfortunately, my Jun22 ordered V2 has now had the delivery date pushed back again, from end Jun23 to end of Aug23.

This is now the 5th time the date has been pushed and I’m on the verge of cancelling! 😡

Unbelievable. Sorry to hear this, very frustrating.

Our 77kw V3 finally built. This is the second one, as first one recalled before shipping. Any idea what is the current time to ship to the UK once leaving the VW factory?

My first company car order was an id3 but I gave up on that and took a cancelled order for a Born. Total wait time is 20 months and 9 days from order to delivery. Everything’s crossed that nothing goes wrong between now and next Thursday 🤞
Well it arrived on wagon all nice and polished with a 96% charge, and it’s bloody lovely. It’s an absolute dream drive, so smooth and quiet. I couldn’t get any charge in it until last night as we couldn’t use the new driveway until Sunday. Finally got things set up in the pod point app, last night’s charge failed so fingers crossed for tonight as I’m back to work on Tuesday 🤞

For anyone looking to order at the moment I've been told 6 months lead time. That's with no options other than metallic paint.

Just found out that the expected arrival of my Jun-22 order which was planned to be end of Aug-23 has just moved forward to mid Jun-23!

Hopefully some good news at last!

Our end of July 2022 77kw V3 plus Beats, DCC Heat Pump and Michelin Pilot EV tyres now at the dealer. Would have been 2 months earlier but original car recalled before arriving in the UK. Our dealer SMC Woking provided a loan Born as original car was recalled. I'll update next week on feedback.

Count yourself lucky. I had a nightmare with Cupra Slough. My original car went AWOL. Got a call from them to say it was completed and waiting for transit to UK. Sold my car ready for the cupra and 3 Months later still no car and nothing from Slough. Got Cupra UK involved. In the end Slough offered me a different car, which ironically was faulty at collection. God knows what they do in PDI nowadays...
Such bad luck. think Cupra are in a queue with ID3's and ID4's etc. I took a pre ordered car in June 2022. In 2022 I wanted to order a 77kwh V2 in Vapor Grey with beats audio but took a 58kwh with Tech pack with self parking (option bought be people who can't reverse so I don't use it LOL) and was told it could take 6 months to 9 months. If you order a car I would expect to wait 12 months as lease companies seem to pre order lots of cars in blocks. My dealer had to spec 15 cars on pre order or lose the slot and not receive any cars. .
