Ongoing delays for electric car buyers in Australia

If you are wanting to buy a fully electric cars you could be in for quite a wait.

With sales of electric vehicles in Australia up over 300% last year with sales of over 17,000 EVs they still only count for less than 2% of all new vehicles sold in this country.

Delays for electric cars mirror our new car market and in some cases local buyers are facing even longer wait times as manufacturers are becoming even more careful with their international allocation of production.

BMW offers the widest range of electric cars in Australia, but their wait times for the various models of the new BMW i EV is from six and 12 months.

BMW Australia say their local delivery times from ordering a BMW iX3 is six months, with delivery for the new BMW iX and i4 models is between six to 12 months.

Chinese manufacturer BYD estimates a delivery date of August 2022 if you order one of their electric cars now. Customers that placed orders for the first batch of electric cars from BYD are set to receive their cars in July.

Hyundai now have some stock of the Ioniq Electric in local dealerships with Australia receiving allocations every one to two months of around 100 electric cars.

With the new-generation Kia Niro due in local showrooms in June or July the EV is currently in run-out mode and the company has stopped taking orders. KIA Australia has already taken over 1500 orders for its new EV6 electric SUV but only has 500 cars arriving this year. The result is that orders placed now will not be delivered until 2025 which is a wait most buyers will not tolerate as more and more car manufacturers begin releasing new electric models.

Mazda Australia have a wait time of up to six months for its new MX-30 Electric and Mercedes-Benz buyers now have a three-month wait for their two electric vehicles in Australia.
