Toyota confirms buyer’s greatest fear, a four-year wait list for all-new Land Cruiser 300 Series SUV.
The demand for the all-new 300 Series has been exceptionally high since it was unveiled last year.
Toyota notes that delivery date may be shortened, depending on the production situation in the future.
Last September, there were rumors across automotive websites that buyers may have to wait for up to four years to take delivery of the all-new 300 Series due to the exceptionally high demand for the SUV.
Now, Toyota has confirmed buyers biggest fears – a four-year delay – after posting an update and an apology to customers on its official Japanese language website.
Below is the translation of the message :
“Thank you very much for considering and ordering our vehicles. The Land Cruiser has been very well received in Japan and around the world.
“We sincerely apologize that it will take a long time to deliver the Land Cruiser to you after you place an order. We sincerely apologize for this.
“If you place an order now, the delivery time may be up to 4 years. We will do our utmost to shorten the delivery time for our customers. We appreciate your understanding in this matter.”
According to Toyota, the delivery date of the Land Cruiser 300 may change depending on the production situation in the future.
Toyota biggest challenge since the launch of the new-generation 300 Series last year was keeping up with demand, forcing it to work day and night to fulfill orders.
The Middle East, being the biggest buyers of the Toyota Land Cruiser SUV, was the first market for the latest generation of the LC 300 Series which made it debut back in June.
