Ordered a new Kamiq back in June 21 just had a message from main dealer saying it could be another 6 months before delivery ? A whole year to deliver a new car ? I know about the semiconductor shortage but come on it's taking the .... Surely.

Have read several similar posts on the forum concerning long delivery for new Kamiq's. I would be tempted to ask for my deposit back and then search for a Kamiq that has been either a "staff" car (as I did ) or demonstrator. Most main dealers seem to allocate a small number of cars for 6 months from new for this purpose , then sell them as "used" with low mileage (1000 mls or so) at considerable discounts. An added bonus is that if there are any "glitches" they come to light during the first 6 months, and are sorted before they are sold - good for their reputation !

Well after a long wait I had a call from my dealer 14th Feb to say my Kamiq is at the port in Germany awaiting delivery , I should receive it within the next two weeks ? He also said out of all the cars transported to the port there were only 40 kamiqs coming into the UK .

Now im worried i just ordered mine a few days ago and was told 13 weeks to collect then they got me to sign a notice saying there was a war on and it may effect delivery times, i just hope im not waiting 12 months as that is a joke.

Has anyone got anymore info on this?

I ordered mine last week (12th July) and was told delivery says 12 weeks but to expect delays but at the moment they are coming in around the 12-16 week mark.

I hope thats the case right now as i originally cancelled my order with kia for this exact reason as i was told 21 weeks and then it turned into delivery by December.
Was more than happy to wait for 12 week wait for the Skoda. Also does anyone know after how long from the moment of placing the order do they start making the car?
I ordered the 1.5 monte carlo.
Thanks
