    Car maker Volkswagen has announced that it has increased its stockpiles of cars in the UK to prepare for a no-deal Brexit.

    “We have optimised inventory levels upwards to delay the impact of potential import tariffs for a while, but there are limits to what can be done,” said Juergen Stackmann, a VW board member responsible for sales and marketing.

    “If there are tariffs, we will not be able to absorb them or compensate the cost. We need to be realistic about the fact that cars would get more expensive for customers.”

    Judging by the waiting times for Tiguan’s they’re obviously not stockpiling the right models, for forum members at least.

    And yet I ended up cancelling a SEAT order because it was going to take 5-6 months to fulfil it.
