No Velar production in Q1 2019... Production halted

Post by TheChallinor » Wed Dec 19, 2018 5:36 pm

Should have known when Land Rover called me it would not be good news. Turns out they are not building ANY Range Rover Velar’s in Q1 2019 and are temporarily halting production so it’s going be June 2019 or later...

Does that explain the 52 week delivery timescale that came up when I started a Rockar order?!

What reason did they give? I was told on Sunday I was still down for March. I questioned if the delays where the engine size and they said there were no problems??

If true, I'll be cancelling my order and I doubt I will be alone. Can they really afford to lose customers given the hard times they are going through?

They said no exact reason from Land Rover, I asked about spec change, engine etc but would make no difference as it effects all Velar’s.

So either supply chain or production line.
