I ordered my MG HS from Arnold Clark today in Glasgow to be told the waiting list is 6months and only available in black, pearl white and solid white
Choices are getting bad.

Seems very strange that there should be such limited paint choice. Is there now a world shortage of coloured pigment? Are we heading for a monochrome world?September 3, 2021 at 8:24 am #163380wmcforumWhich Mobility Car

Ordered my HS in black at end of July. Was told October at the time. I’m now being told I can expect January 2022!November 16, 2021 at 12:52 pm #169217Ben
Ordered mine from Fiat(MG) in Diss Norfolk. This was Mid-June. Just been on the phone to them and they have now said that its Feb 2022. It a HS Black. Understand the delays but more than likely going to cancel the order. 8 month wait and to be honest im not being kept in the loop im doing the chasing so nothing proactive happening on that side either. ShameNovember 28, 2021 at 10:32 pm #170253Jal22
I’ve just ordered my MG HS exclusive DCT and have been told March/April but could be sooner. And they also said I’d be unlucky to be waiting longer than April but reading these I won’t hold my breath lolNovember 29, 2021 at 12:48 am #170258EdParticipant
Just ordered an hs from chapelhouse in Southport only to be told retail sales are being given priority. I was originally told April then in less than a week I’ve been told possibly June/July or longer! Feels very much like they don’t want or need motabilitys custom.December 19, 2021 at 4:13 pm #172056David Forsyth

Ordered a hs excite auto Sept 4th was told defiantly have it by Christmas – phones just before Christmas to be told and I quote “you’ll be lucky to have it by April 22”January 1, 2022 at 5:38 pm #172861HarbParticipant
The dealers/manufacturers are clearly lying about wait times.
I only ordered in November but I think I’ll cancel and go for the newly re-added RAV4 insteadJanuary 1, 2022 at 11:41 pm #172885Dante
The online MG HS forums are full of similar stories – dealers ability differ as do their access to orders / stock – so
aorth phoning around . But MG, like many manufacturers , seem to have lost the ability to perform their logistics. MG U.K. is dire as is their ‘customer service’ in essence it’s just a glorified import office tbh
Despite some issues and niggles my MG HS is the most comfy / ideal for my access needs suv I’ve had on the scheme and the most tech laden for the AP (even the increase. AP today, is a bargain compared to most mid size suv AP’s on the scheme)January 4, 2022 at 6:20 am #173172barry goddard

When is next hs exclusive delivery expected ordered Dec 2021February 8, 2022 at 9:21 am #176581Chris M
We picked my wifes up Last week.
Ordered end of June 21, so pretty much 7 months to the day.
Dealer was informed 2 weeks prior to the car arriving at the showroom, they were expecting delivery end of Feb
They had over 30 HS’s in and all went out over 4 days.February 8, 2022 at 10:22 am #176593Martin Shaw
order my motability MG HS in November and was told delivery would be march. I changed my mind on the colour 6 weeks after I ordered as I didn’t like the pearl white and decided to change to black rang today for an update only to be told that it would be June because I made a colour change. I did check when I made the change that it wouldn’t affect anything and the sales guy said it wouldn’t. Very disappointed but nothing we can do about it I suppose. Sales teams need to stop using covid as an excuse because I can guarantee that covid has no impact on the production it’s more to do with the shortage of materials involved with micro chip manufacturingFebruary 8, 2022 at 10:33 am #176597ChrisKParticipant
Trouble is Martin when your sat at the showroom desk ordering a car (from any dealer) the sales folk will rattle off anything to you to give you the answer you want to hear and just expect you would not change your mind.
Changing anything to a cars spec in the best of times can delay an order but in today’s market it can mean even longer delays.
When I order my VW Tiguan back last October the sales woman, in an off hand way, said “I think we got one out the back ready to go” and I knew already I would be lucky to see the car within 6 months at the least and that’s why I say to take what they say with a pinch of salt.
