Hi, today the UK government announced its plans in the event of "no deal" including a 10% duty on new cars being imported to the UK after 29th March.

Can you clarify what happens to UK customers who have already placed orders and are expecting delivery after 29th March?

I note that Porsche, for one, have said any such duty will have to paid by customers

So, will JLR absorb the cost, or pass it to customers?

My guess is that for any orders currently placed and accepted they will have to absorb the cost and only charge the additional tariff for new orders, imagine the amount of orders cancelled over having to pay an additional 10% they'd lose even more money, my car is due for delivery next Friday the 22nd but if it was delayed and then they tried to charge me another 10% I would cancel the car 100% and I'm sure many of you will agree there's no way I'm waiting 4 months for a car and having to pay 10% more a couple of weeks before receiving the vehicle

The list of UK manufactured premium small SUV alternatives is quite short... Evoque... Qashqai (?) uh...

Good Morning Jneill

Thank you for your post.

As I am sure you can appreciate, that due to the uncertainty of the UK Governments plans for Brexit, we are currently not in a position to comment on the future effects of leaving the EU.

As a result I am unfortunately unable to comment further.

I am sorry that I could not offer more information at this time.

Many Thanks

Dan - Jaguar UK

Hi Dan, Porsche made their position clear some week ago. Why can't JLR?

If customers will be asked to pay an extra 10% on a £30k-£40k+ vehicle on 30th March we need to know now.

My dealer gave me a reply that I doubt will hold much water. "As Jaguar is a British-registered company, no import duties will apply to the E-Pace, even although it is assembled in Austria."
