For those of you who've placed an order, what is the current lead time on the 5? I am looking for a March delivery which is way off, but concerned that if demand is taking off the leads times mat extend

My Long Range Ultimate is due in December 2021.

was that the RWD version? I have ordered a RWD ultimate with delivery beginning September
Yes it is the RWD model, I found it hard to justify the cost of AWD when I don't really need it!

Just heard back from a dealer sho said delivery was normal expected in the next quarter after ordering. So, an early Q4 order can be delivered late Q1 2022.

I remember when Konas we're on a lengthily waiting list but I think that was a battery shortage issue?

They now have a massive chip shortage which is causing issues for every car manufacture and electronic goods companies.
DO NOT believe dealers they will tell you anything to get a deposit/order. Don't forget cars are just rolling out and countries such as USA/Canada/Australia haven't got cars yet so I would not expect anything until spring 2022. My dealer told me Hyundai made them lease their demo car for a year (10k mile limit) so they can't even sell that.

Fortune has a headline this month that there is now more likely to be a glut of chips than a shortage. The factory taken out by a fire is back in production, US factories hit by last winter's bad weather are back in production. Hyundai is increasing production and stocking up on chips for the future.
