Just got call from dealership (Melbourne), my October allocation has been moved to early 2023. Ordered in April 2022. Apparently nationwide issue. Anyone else been notified? Not happy Jan!
I ordered early May 2022 and haven’t got an allocation yet, so no call this week. Hopefully not too many behind you @cel . Have been working to a mid year 2023 timeline based on dealer advice so hopefully this is consistent news.Just got call from dealership (Melbourne), my October allocation has been moved to early 2023.

That's interesting. I just checked my contract and it has this in it:I placed my order in March '22 for an eDrive40 through a dealer in Brisbane. I signed the contract and paid a deposit, with the delivery date on the contract stating 30 March '23.
Pushing 7 months and there's still no certainty. I followed up with the dealer recently and was told that I'll need to wait until January '23 for confirmation of a production date. According to the dealer, the delivery date is now somewhere in the "first half of the year". I've lost all confidence that it will be delivered in March (or even the first half of the year).
I've got to the point where I'm reconsidering my options and looking to cancel my order, which would be a costly decision. I don't have any special clause that would allow a full refund of the deposit. On top of this, the dealer advised against cancelling now as I would also incur a penalty fee equivalent to 10% of the total price of the car.
