Delivery delay?

Post by Joolsdc » Thu Mar 19, 2020 7:15 pm

Given the current Covid-19 crisis, I can’t see how our Honda e’s won’t be delayed beyond June
Honda won’t be able to train the sales and garage teams in April. Or indeed May and June
Manufacturing and parts delivery will be delayed in Japan
Shipping from Japan must be delayed
So ......😕
Thoughts?

Unfortunately, I too have little hope that Honda - under the given circumstances - can deliver as originally planned.
I fear, however, that this should be the least of our worries...

This might work in our favour though. Used prices are through the floor so need to recover a bit so we can sell our old ones.

Agree on the used prices. But lucky I just sold my Mini JCW. Got £2k over the pcp balloon payment. They collected Monday. Phew.
That’s why I was keen to move it on. I fear residuals will fall. I also uncertain whether to pcp the e? Or lease? Bank loan. Or buy outright
