Anyone had a kona delivered lately to the UK?

How long did it take? What Spec? Lease or Purchase?

Ordered a ultimate on 11th November. Heard nothing. Chased up 3 times with Hyundai UK but they've had no reply from the factory. Not sure how long I'll be waiting now.

Thanks for that... quite sad news. That would be 7 months :eek: (30 weeks!) Hyundai UK told me last week that 'today' orders were currently 35-37 weeks so it all seems confusing. My dealer is nice enough but I get the feeling Hyundai tell them nothing.

If it was in January production, would it not be ready to ship by mid Feb, and arrive latest the end of March? Or is that too optimistic.

If it's helpful to anybody: Ultimates [and highlanders for the aussie market] ordered between November 6th and sometime in December went into production this week so for those orders we're looking at 10 weeks. (Assuming 2 weeks from Tilbury to dealership)

Sounds good, have you had that confirmed from the dealer regarding delivery times?

Still sounds completely optimistic given the info from dealer bulletins they have fed to me, but I hope you are right👍
Nope, this [Production info] was directly from Hyundai in South Korea. They don't even bother to inform Hyundai UK or the dealers, which seems to be why people have a lot of hate for the dealers and Hyundai right now.

Once we had the production timetable, we were able to confirm with Hyundai UK the lead times at Tilbury etc. Can't be more specific as I haven't bothered to look into shipping timetables, but I suspect arrival will be between 16th and 30th April. I should probably email my dealer and give him the info, but I guess he'll know when it arrives in Tilbury anyway.

Where are you finding that out? I think my Premium should probably be in Tilbury by now but all I have is a w/c 21st feb estimate to me
If it's at Tilbury, Hyundai UK should know. You can call them on 0800 6920825 and ask with your order number. (The possibly even know once it's en route TO tilbury, but not sure about that. Maybe another member can clear it up?)

If it's not on a ship yet, it's rather more complicated.

@owly Just to add to the conversation. We ordered a 64kWh Premium in Dive Blue on 11th December. Based on the comments here I chased the dealer today and they sent me the Order to Delivery screen shot that shows it shipped on 19th Jan, and due in to UK 3rd March and with the dealer on 16th. Might be worth hassling the dealer for the Hyundai 10 digit order number and Direct Tweet Hyundai UK if the dealer won't provide the info.
Excellent news for you. Hope you love it. Worth noting that Hyundai UK can find the order number directly for you if the dealer is being a pain in the ass. Also fits in the 10 week window for 'production to delivery' timings.
