In same boat then... You are a month ahead of me in theory... I ordered mid March.
Does not seem they do the factory orders in strict rotation though,from other threads and feedback on other forums seems to suggest certain colours are done in batches so some customers end up getting lucky.Shame they are closing factory for whole of August as it has only just reopened..hoping i may get it by end of September but already told my local dealer i am trying to source the model elsewhere on the very slim chance one turns up at another dealer.

Do you know why the factory is closing for August? I remember seeing that mentioned before but can't find any info.

Our dealer told us a couple of weeks ago that ours (orange gt-line, ordered 1st March) is estimated to arrive to UK the week of 7-13 of September, not sure where they got that info though.

I think the 2008 is being manufactured in Spain in the PSA Vigo plant, do you know if Spain do the same?

Hi,my dealer told me plus i think a lot of the car factories normally close in August( Hyundai close in August ) I was hoping they would not close this august as they have only just reopened the factories but the french have their own ways.I can only go by what the dealer told me about peugeot closing in August, perhaps they will have a re-think and stay open :)

Same situation for me ordered GT-line Elixir red early march and have no build date but guestimate of end Sept. You might be right regarding Vigo plant as I had heard that also so maybe production will continue there.

"The 2008 will be built in Vigo, Spain, with both EV and combustion models made on the same production line. Cars destined for the Chinese market will be manufactured locally. "
Google seems to agree with both of you so perhaps there is some light at the end of the tunnel.

Hope production does continue at Vigo during August, as I would have thought it maybe difficult to meet the expectations of mid to late deliveries in September. 🤞🤞Plus it would be nice to have some chance of some decent weather left when the car finally does arrive. I am away on holiday for 2 weeks in September, what's the bets.... 🤔🙄

Don't think I could have that option as mines through work salary sacrifice scheme. Let us know how it goes and how you find the car, can't wait for mine to finally arrive

Great result! 👍 Don't forget to post some pics when you pick it up.

I might chase my dealership up again next week for any updates.

We ordered our GT Line in Orange Fusion on the 1st March. Only just been given an estimated delivery date of September 13th
Chased the dealer again and they now say we have a build date of 31st August which means estimated delivery 23rd September. Hopefully that's the last time it's pushed back!
