New Order

Hi, I ordered a new E-Pace on the 14th of December and have a couple of questions for you all. First is average delivery time. My salesperson gave me a tentative date of 13 March, which I suppose is the standard three month estimate for build from order. What has been your experience with wait time for delivery?

Second is build location. Are they currently building E-Paces in China and if so are the Chinese builds destined solely for the Asian market and the Austrian built E-Paces are for the rest of the world?

Many thanks,

Ray

Mine was ordered on the 7th of October as a company vehicle through Arnold Clark Vehicle Management, poverty spec base model 150d manual with the only option being Borasco grey paint. Update this morning is that delivery is imminent as the car should arrive in the UK shortly. Assuming next week at the earliest that would be around 15 weeks. Admittedly, Arnold Clark may have sat on the order for a week or so before submitting so 3 months is probably about right.
As to build location, my understanding is China built for Asian market and Austria built for everywhere else.

OK, many thanks for your reply. That gives me a good yardstick for mine.

Another good data point, thanks for that. I’d be very interested to know when it actually arrives at your dealer. I was really hoping to get mine before mid March, but from what I’ve seen here, more like the end of March.

That's very helpful and encouraging. If yours was ordered on the 18th of October and was in the UK on the 17th of December, that's just over 8 weeks from order to arrival in the UK and then just over 3 weeks to delivery with the xmas holidays in between, I'm more hopeful for mid-March for mine.

How are you liking it and what did it replace?
