2019 AWD - delivery times

Recommended Posts

Good evening all,

My Excel  AWD model was ordered  by the supplying dealer last week with a delivery date of July although they said they expected it to arrive sooner.

Just wondered what delivery times others have been quoted for the AWD models ?

A new member has been quoted 12 weeks for their Rav4 - though they haven't said whether it is FWD or AWD.

Kenth, 

That’s interesting, I will have to give my dealer a chase. Are you based in the UK though ?

Maybe they're later on the launch schedule than UK, I'm hoping to get mine in June/early July (or preferably sooner), but my dealer has been unable to confirm a build date as of a couple of days ago.

I ordered a new Excel AWD RAV4 when the dealers received their initial trade briefing, that was way back, last December.  The Toyota system accepted the order and the delivery date was then shown as 1st May and this has not changed.  My dealer has had delivery dates change on other more recent orders but mine is still showing as 1st May and that is what I am working on. I have got a registration number and insurance ready to go.  I guess that it should be on the water by now but I have failed to find any useful information as to the shipping method and timescales for these cars.  The only thing I did find is that these cars arrive at a facility at Portbury, Bristol.  Time will tell if it arrives on time. I understand from the dealer that the Toyota logistics advice is unreliable and often not updated. The first indication that they often have is when a car turns up on site.

When I test drove it on 17th of Feb the system showed a delivery date of beginning of May, and when I ordered (AWD version) on 19th of Feb the order "est del date" was set to 23rd of May. I asked the dealer if there is any change/update a few times already, they always say the dates haven't changed and there is no further information they can provide, currently the system says "may-june" 2019.

Thank you for all your replies, looks like 12 weeks on average then which might mean early July for me as our finance dept sat on the order for nearly 4 weeks !!

I'm located in Sweden and we seems to have the same conditions as ChrisJohn describes abowe.

If You where among the first ones that ordered in mid december ( in Sweden. dont know if both FWD and AWD though) Youll probably got your car in the beginning of May as I can understand.

The RAV 2019 seems very popular in Sweden and this will probably affect delivering time.

There is even a higher price now, compared to if you ordered earlier, cause of a higher/increased YEN value compared to Swedish KRONA

The cars did still have plastic on wheels and doors and no register plate yet
