Semi conductor factory fire that makes ~70% of global supply had a very large fire. Production halted. This means your car might be delayed by 6 to 12 months.

It was the same with my dealer.
To be honest, I don't think they have any idea.
Ordered the car on-line on 23rd July ( 2019 ) and it arrived at the dealership, two weeks before Xmas.
I rang them about 3 times over that period, never got the same answer on dates from any one of the calls.
They never rang me once, until the day it arrived.
And they openly admitted they had no idea it was coming, until four ZS EV's all turned up at the same time !.
Black / White / Red ( mine ) and one in blue.
They had all been collected when I turned up for mine on the 4th of Jan 2020.
I am STILL waiting for the follow up call from the sales department, to see if we are happy with our purchase.
That was almost two years ago now, so I don't expect they will ring now 🤷‍♂️ .
Poor customer service - once again !.
They must be really rushed off their feet in the first week in January - NOT !.

The car insurance is not that bad, just a bit more "Faff" you could do without.
But the MOT is a real pain !.
If it throws up any issues, you are knackered.
Spending money on a car you should not even own by now.
What about people tied into a lease or PCP deal that is coming to an end ?.
Maybe they would let you extended the lease, but with a PCP it has to go back I think.
I sold my car privately in the October and we used my wife's car until the ZS EV arrived in late December.
But of course not everybody can do this !.
It is my understanding that the cars are not allocated to there respected dealers, until they have left the boat.
If this is so, this would explain why they do not have any of delivery dates ???.

I'm sure there are other dealers with stock if you can travel. Look on Autotrader, Luscombes MG in Leeds is advertising so there must be others with stock.

Luckily White is by far the best color. It shows the very nice shapes of the car. With the colors you can’t see the curves

Like with washing machines etc. :LOL:
Another advantage though is it's also the cheapest to buy (y)

Thing is i've paid a deposit they definately said we would have the car the middle of September nothing about they were getting shipped in on a boat , we were under the impression the cars they had as it was supposedly limited numbers were already here ..... Thank you
