Rav4 Estimated Delivery, etc

Recommended Posts

I ordered a Rav4 15th October and I was told It would arrive 25th of April. My dealer called me couple of weeks ago and told me It would arrive in March and he called me again last week  and said it's arriving in February now. He can't  even tell me whether it will be updated MY22 or not...  Has anyone ordered Rav4 in recent months , if they have, what's your estimated delivery time ?  Thanks.

Depends on too many variables and the HEV seems to take longer than a PHEV. My guess is improving supplies of semi conductors and possibly reduced demand due to waning consumer confidence are improving delivery times.

Ordered mine on 4th October and as far as I'm aware it's still arriving mid March but then again I it's an Excel with Premium Pack so whether that makes any difference  I am unsure 

I ordered Excel as well.. without the Premium pack  though.

My PHEV was ordered on 28th September and arrived at Portbury yesterday. Due at dealers 20th December however will be registered for January collection. 

I think PHEV arrives faster, no idea why. I would think It should take longer because of more electronic parts but that  doesn't seem to be the case.

Hello! I ordered mine the same time, a week later and the dealer said It comes in March. I live in Estonia, but don't think there is a big difference in terms of delivery time. The app still shows that the order is processed, your too?

The PHEV’s have lower CO2 ratings so the more thry sell, the more it helps with meeting the legal corporate average figures set by the EU.

Do RAVs for Estonia come from Japan or Russia?

As I understand (so could be wrong) PHEVs and HEVs come from different factories (in Japan) so there's no particular reason why their delivery times should be similar - Toyota can't simply switch from the production of one to the other along the line according to demand.

Total time is made up from:

  • The order waiting for a production slot - could be hours; could be months
  • Factory build - about two days
  • Waiting for a berth on a boat - could be days; could be weeks
  • The voyage - anything from around six weeks upwards depending on the route, number of stops en route (and possible the location of the Ever Given)
  • Time at Portbury waiting for transport to Burnaston
  • Time a Burnaston doing whatever Toyota do there for UK cars and waiting for transport to your dealer
  • Time at the dealer for prep and fitting of dealer fitted accessories

BUT ... when we order a car, Toyota will tend to supply the next available vehicle that meets the order spec - they won't go and build one specially if one is already available. So for mine (a HEV) the time from 'order' to delivery was around 5 weeks - one of which was spent at the dealer's. The car in question was already in Portbury when I 'ordered' it - they had lots of cancelled orders through 2020 due to Covid concerns ...

And delivery times last week/month/year are irrelevant. It is the situation when YOUR order is placed. Not what someone else experienced. If we had ordered our PHEV on the day the price dropped we could have had one from stock. However we were on holiday and took a few days to sort ourselves out by which time the Dynamic Premiums available in the UK had all sold

Yes, MyT app stills shows "processing order"

I ordered my HEV Dynamic right at the end of September and was given a mid March delivery (no change as yet). Posts on the comparison with PHEV and HEV delivery seem to indicate the higher demand for HEV models. I would probably have gone for a PHEV model, but sadly at present, I have no facility for home charging, as we live in a complex of flats. The HEV for me is the best option. I have been told by my dealer that my vehicle will be a MY2022 build.

I’m in a similar situation, ordered a RAV 4 Excel on the 18th October expected date for delivery was April 2022 but I have nothing showing in the My T app.

Chased my dealer again today but they say they cannot do anything until they get the VIN number.

If anyone can find from their dealer how they get the info needed so quickly please let me know.

Thanks

I ordered my white Rav4 excel on 22nd September and the order is still not yet been allocated a build date although the dealer database shows a forecast delivery of mid february 22! I am told that ordering it with the white leather interior may delay the build ho hum.

Currently the MyT app acknowledges me and has allocated me a toyota id but that is my lot, nothing about the order at all. I have been told by my dealer that the App will self populate when the order gets a definite build date. 

Whilst I would be very happy to see the car available to me in mid Feb I am not taking any bets on whether it will be available then, as I have also been told it could take up to 2 months from build completion to its arrival in the UK and with no allocated build date I have serious doubts about the mid Feb date.

If the dealer adds your email address to your order, you should see the order in MyT app.

My dealer said all kinds of excuses for not adding  my email address to order. I contacted Toyota over their web chat and email their customer relations. Toyota called the dealer and all sorted. I guess the sales person needed a phone call from directly Toyota.... He wasn't very happy about me contacting Toyota directly.

Thanks for your posts, I'll give it a try.

To be fair the salesman I'm dealing with is new but he tells me he as asked others and they say Toyota will update when they have an assigned VIN number.

Which is, I think, mostly 'tosh' ... 😉

The MyT app will track an order based on the order number until that order is fulfilled.

It will then 'talk' to your car based on VIN / Registration number and tell you details about your vehicle - once it is satisfied that the vehicle is in your possession.

But not all dealers are equal to the task it would appear! 🙂

Yes I suspect (know) you are correct, I've just email the sales person again, his response was he will past it on to his manager, we will see.

I’ve now found out why My T app is not showing any details, I am a member of an association which has a deal with Toyota and as such I get the car at a reduced price and it is classed as a fleet sale.

From what I have been told you will not be able to get the information directly as it outside the retail system but the dealer who is taking delivery should get some updates but if Lex will not give you the dealer name I don't know what you can do.

I ordered  an HEV Excel on the same date and was told delivery in April. Dealer update this week said delivery in February, maybe 😲

Trade in value on Autotrader,  of current car has risen though so it will be interesting to see if the variable valuation clause in the contract works in my favour ho hum!

You don’t have to trade it in. Just because you have agreed that doesn’t stop you selling elsewhere and negotiating a discount. I effectively reduced my cost to change by £3000 by selling privately and negotiating rather than trade in my previous car.
