Just a quick update, dealer is now telling me August/September which is 9/10 months and is only an estimate, and you can see form other forums there are shortages of delivery drivers to transport the cars from Tilbury to dealerships once the ships have docked. I have put the car to the back of my mind for now. Digressing slightly, I see that KIA have pulled a lot of cars, so I do expect long delivery times to be the new norm. Also asked the dealer if there are any unsold stock cars of differing trims, and basically nowt.May 12, 2022 at 3:34 pm #185100BigDaveParticipant

I have resigned myself to a September delivery at the earliest, so will put all car thoughts on the back burner for the summer.May 14, 2022 at 1:33 pm #185247Tim
Hi all, first time poster here!
We ordered a Hyundai Kona ultimate 64kwh in February. Our dealer rang up on Thursday saying that they have now received a schedule that says it will be built next month, dispatched end of July and available end of September which all sounds promising. However, friends of ours who ordered the ioniq 5 and Kona ultimate (not motability) in November last year (from the same dealer) have now been told not to expect delivery before Christmas. Little bit confused but hey ho, will just have to wait I guess!May 16, 2022 at 5:30 am #185358Chub
Guys anyone who hasn’t heard from your dealership should call them and chase it up apparently there is ship at sea. It seems like a lottery though as to who will have their cars on there. Maybe it’s a colour situ.
Jope that people will start to be receiving hood at news soon. 🙏🏼May 16, 2022 at 10:54 am #185378
Grand Pavo just left Ulsan allegedly bound for Tilbury – place your bets 😂👍May 17, 2022 at 11:18 am #185457Chris
Takes two months to arrive right?May 17, 2022 at 11:43 am #185459
Shipping takes about 5 weeks and 2 weeks to dealership, but at present add another 4-6 weeks delay at tilbury docks due to driver shortage. the pattern is we all seem to be told is our cars are 3 months away.May 17, 2022 at 12:04 pm #185460
From viewing posts on this forum – I was under the impression we received our VIN when ship sailed – so I was assuming it would be another 2-3 mths after getting VIN.May 17, 2022 at 1:31 pm #185480Garry p

Going off of the posts here and on Facebook and forums, the ultimates ordered between jan/April are being delivered in September. Although that seems mostly for the jungle greens, which have a different name in other countries.
Hopefully there’s no problems with delivery. Fuel just went up 6p overnight everywhere near me. The anticipation of cutting my fuel bill by nearly 2000 a year is a very exiting thought 🙂May 18, 2022 at 11:40 am #185524Chris
I had a email to say
It is still showing the Middle of July for deliveryMay 18, 2022 at 2:16 pm #185540Sigma
fwippers it looks like we are in a very similar situation to you. We ordered our Kona Electric Ultimate in Pulse Red on 11 Nov 21 with a forecasted delivery date of Apr 22.
I contacted the dealer in Mar and was told delivery has slipped to early Jul, went in again today to find out that it has slipped by a further 6 weeks to mid Aug.
The dealer did say that it was due to be in a ship from Usan in mid Jun so fingers crossed.May 18, 2022 at 2:16 pm #185538Justme
Chris, is that for an Ultimate or Premium?May 18, 2022 at 2:35 pm #185548
I am waiting for a reply from Motability dealer as to my latest delivery estimate.
I ordered late October – ultimate – misty jungle – light interior.
I was originally told March but took it with a large dollop of salt.
It then slipped to May – tho I was told it had been built in February – but I think waiting for finishing chips.
However if it had been built in February you would think the reason for delay wouldn’t be down to external or internal colour – more the fact it was an ultimate with an increased demand for chips. I suppose it is possible they are putting finishing chips in the cars grouped by colour.
I will let you know if and when I have an update.May 18, 2022 at 3:52 pm #185549Garry p
We had a update today from supply ( two weeks ago I asked for it ) and they said car would be out off production on the 02/06/22 and on boat 15/06/22 to arrive at dealership 16/08/22 so will see . We ordered a kona ultimate electric first week of January 22 .so I went it to dealership and they told me the same. Maybe they are getting better.????May 18, 2022 at 4:23 pm #185551Chris
@justme ultimate trim 🙂May 18, 2022 at 8:04 pm #185561Garry p
Dose anyone know the name of the car carrier ship which is setting off with our kona on 15/06/22 I tried looking into it but drawn a blank so far , and it might be fun to track it on its Journey to tilburyMay 18, 2022 at 10:02 pm #185580
<p style=”text-align: left;”>Grand Pavo could fit the bill – I think it is scheduled to leave Ulsan on the 13th – but they all seem subject to a change of a day or so – especially for arrival at Tilbury.</p>
