An Audi Q7 e-tron of the right-hand side of the unit conversion problem has left British buyers waiting for their cars months after the expected delivery date.
A number of prospective owners have contacted the Coach who claim to be aware of when your car arrives, despite having received the notification that it had been built and sent to great Britain, until four months ago.
One of the disgruntled reader said: “My car has been on order since June and was scheduled for delivery in mid-September. I can’t even get a copy of the order”.
Another reader explained how their car was confirmed as built and released by the factory for shipment in August, but was then “put on hold”, along with 34 other Q7 e-trons.
“That was almost two months ago,” they said. “I’ve been in contact with the dealer regularly, but there is seemingly no information from the factory, why all these vehicles are on standby.”
Readers said they had received courtesy cars free of charge, but you still have not said why your Q7 e-trons had been retained.
Audi has already told Autocar that the delay in delivery has been caused by a supply problem of the modifications of the components that are specific to the right Q7 e-trons.
“Unfortunately, this has disrupted the order and delivery process for the car,” said a spokesman. “We are doing everything possible to get these processes off the track and will write to the affected customers very soon to confirm the next steps. In the meantime, we offer our most sincere apologies for this very irregular interruption of the supply.”
The Q7 e-tron is a hybrid model that uses a 3.0 TDI V6 mated to an electric motor. Order books opened its doors in the month of July with prices for the all-wheel-drive SUV from £64,950.
