P400e - Production Delay

Post by Jk89 » Tue Apr 13, 2021 10:32 pm

Hey - I ordered a velar p400e in Jan - was told it would be ready early April - then Mid May & now Mid June - due to production delays. (I’m guessing it will be moved along again) - Is anyone else having issues? What’s the general wait time for a new build?

I’ll contact my dealer and check. I ordered in Feb with a May delivery, then all dates disappeared for a week (after a letter from JLR about COVID delays) and then they returned confirming 21st May. There was a post on here from someone with a new P400e with a major battery problem and he was told that JLR knew they had a problem but didn’t know how to solve it !

Hi

Oedered a P400e january 8. Was told approx 12 weeks delivery time. Then it was end of April. Then it was "unslotted" production date. Then it was August. Now i don't know. I'm not impressed with this at all.

Reimagine unfortunately seems now to mean JLR is slowly going down the tubes. Will be interesting to see who can bail them out ( hopefully not me the tax payer) or will it go the same way as Rover in 2005?

The issue is I believe is due to battery supply issues from LG Chem’s Poland plant.
Which is also affecting other manufacturers.

Due to the pandemic, there is a severe shortage of battery components - specifically capacitors and semiconductor chips for energy management.
Elsewhere there are also shortages on chips across ECU modules.
This is why there are production delays across all JLR products (and AMG/BMW/Audi/...)

There have also been shortages of parts due to backlogs in ports.

I am not sure any dealer will be able to offer specific dates realistically. Expect delays.
As an example, JLR has just announced two of its biggest plants will suspend production due to semiconductor shortages.
This will almost certainly have impacts on any dates you were quoted.

JLR were reporting today that the Range Rover plant in Solihull wasn’t effected - I am keeping my fingers crossed as my car is supposed to go into production late next week. The dealer checked earlier in the week and the dates were unaltered.

Some may say a RR without microchips may be an improvement !
