Just thinking out loud, I wonder how car companies in general will cope as the deadline approaches for the end of ice new car sales. If they are taking orders up to the deadline, they will still be delivering ice cars a year after the deadline 🤔

ICE cars and vehicles are going to be around for a long time yet even without new car sales. Cars will be sold right up to the deadline and service centers busy for a long long time.

Of course, new cars have a shelf life of, what? 10 years or more, so yes Ice cars will be here for the rest of my life, and beyond, what I’m saying is, with the lead times being a year or so in some cases, and the deadline saying no new cars to be sold after it, I just wonder if they will be able to take orders right up to the deadline, or will they have to stop selling new ice cars as soon as they know they can’t deliver before the deadline 🤔

I see what you mean. I would imagine as long as the order has been placed deliveries up to a certain time frame will be allowed to happen. I thought official deadline was 2030? So would imagine all the vehicles manufacturers will have electric options for the UK.

Another thought? Is it just the UK that is banning the sale of petrol and diesel cars? Can people still buy in Europe or elsewhere and import?

Ordered my very first Evoque (p250, super excited!) on 11/09 and had the call yesterday to say it had been given a build slot for December, delivery expected mid Jan. Just a luck or have some of the delays been secretly sorted?

I somewhat expected to see loads of others like me on this thread this morning.

John (I think) posted a document in this thread a few weeks back showing which models/specs were available to order and which had 12 month lead times, yours might be just the right spec along with the rationing of features across the brand they might have eased the production line stopages.

Did/are you getting all the options you wanted?

From what I've been told it all depends on the model and spec required. Some lower spec cars are available within 6 months but if you want a fully optioned P300e Autobiography then it's a 12 month minimum wait from order to delivery.

Yes, it’s up to individual countries to decide on ice vehicle sales. I don’t know what the rest of Europe, or the world has put in place for ice vehicles. Maybe the regulations will also ban the import of ice ?
As you say, I would have thought all car manufacturers will have alternate propulsion systems in place by then anyway, and may well have phased out the sales of ice themselves.

My dealer gave a 6-9month wait on the higher spec models last month,12+ months for the lower ones. Didn’t expect to hear anything until at least next year (especially as people have said their May orders are only just getting build slots) but I’m also awaiting an update on the confirmed spec so will see if everything is on there. Not too many extras added so it may just be that I haven’t chosen any large delaying features, like you said

I ordered my P200 R Dynamic S Evoque late June this year and is still in the Holding Pool and informed it will not see it this year. The 3 yr PCP on my Jag XE ends in Sept 2022 so I am hanging in there at the moment.

After 3 months of uncertainty and stress and trying to stay in front of curve, i have finally cancelled order for new evoque.
However, managed to obtain Evoque R Dynamic SE 4 months old from Listers in Hereford (Who i can highly recommend. Especially William Mapp).
Car fantastic and a joy to drive. Better than expected.
Definitely worth holding out for if your not bothered about some of the tech.
