MG contacted me today, my ev is number 94 of the first 700 to be delivered at the end of November.
Hi @rogerdee So, just to clarify my understanding please.Yes it was dealer who said they had been notified by MG. Placed order 1st July.
Thank you, please keep us updated !.Hi Carty, the call I had from dealer only confirmed model/colour and delivery to me would be before the end of November and would I require finance. I don't know if I'm in the first 700 or second 700 but hope to find out more on Monday.
I really do hope that people are aware that the VERY popular dark "Lazer" blue colour on the ICE cars, is NOT available on the SZ EV model !.I've heard over 50% off people have chosen blue.
If MG haven't taken this into account IT COULD really push you back if you have blue.
How and when did you get to find out your number may I ask ?.So the wife has popped in and given it the thumbs up. (the kids are out growing the Ampera)
She likes red but already a few grand over budget. So white it is.
Dealer was utterly packed, but I guess if its new plate week that explains it.
Got my ev number now. Its in the 700s, if I choose white sounds like I may get mine this delivery?
Hi @StEVG Please don’t think I am having a direct “Pop” at posting the info that you have been given !.Carty- I can only report what I have been told. The car is definitely in the first 1,000 (but one of the last few orders) and the dealer has said it is expected at the beginning of Feb 2020, although could be earlier.
Yes it does put you in the same position with MG as Kia, Hyundai, Tesla etc where there are long periods between ordering and receiving the car. And yes it makes planning a nightmare.
I am picking up my Kia e-Niro today having waited since January for it; had my home charger fitted a month or so ago and sold my current car just over a week ago.
It would be great to turn up at a dealer, order a car and part exchange and complete within a matter of days or weeks. But that is not going to happen for for some time as manufacturers for whatever reason struggle to meet demand.
In the case of MG there may be more cancellations from the first 1,000 once people test drive or don’t get satisfactory answers about the car (not going to list them as various threads set them out). Alternatively, demand might increase as people get to see and drive the car.
To quote Rumsfeld stated: Reports that say that something hasn't happened are always interesting to me, because as we know, there are known knowns; there are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there are some things we do not know.
The above famous quote just about sums up most comments on this site or from dealers or manufacturers “I know nothing”!
