The Brexit agreement between Britian and the EU was voted down. However, the UK still it planning on leaving the EU on March 31st. They are hoping for an agreement with the EU so trade/borders/etc. are all ironed out before leaving the EU. If not, they do not know if the EU will impose a tarriffs on import/export from the EU. The EU can vote to request and extension to the March 31st deadline, but the EU would then have to approve the deadline. It is a mess. JLR and Aston Martin separately this week made a request to the government not to leave without an agreement in place.Why are you concerned about Brexit? The Brexit plan was voted down by Parliment in the biggest defeat of all time. Theresa May faced a "no confidence" vote over this entire Brexit mess that has been dragging out over 2 years.
The spec RR would be for 2019. You got me curious on what is new for MY2020. I can't imagine they would change a whole lot. I know they are working on the new redesign schedule to arrive in 2021. I always add and extra year due to delays so maybe 2021 or 2022. LOLAre you building a MY2020 on Feb 2? I was at the dealer today picking up DEF fluid for my Range and I asked if there are any spec updates and still nothing. My rep also mentioned that there was a training in Las Vegas recently with executives from Land Rover UK and they kept the lid tight on MY2020 specs.
It's definitely a different era now, that for many a car order depends so much on international politics.
Anyway, back on topic, we usually hear about the upcoming MY specs in April/May. '18 and '19 were highly unusual model years.
Wow, that sounds early. I would love to get a 2020. However, I am concerned about Brexit so I asked my dealer to get the earliest custom order. I asked him in Dec and he got me a build date of Feb 2 and should be here by April 2nd. Brexit is suppose to happen on March 31st unless they extend the deadline. My lease is up in Sept/Oct so I will try to sell the car and get some $ back. Probably not much, but hopefully a min of 5K.
I'm not sure about Brexit, but it is affecting speculation, especially in china. That is Land Rover's largest market and it is down about 50% right now. Coupled with the slowdown of the world economy at large, and multiple car companies, including JLR are laying off people. JLR is laying off close to 5000 employees. They are also moving Discovery production out of the UK to freaking Slovakia...yikes. Tata developed the worlds cheapest automobile and it looks like they are doing everything to save a buck.
JLR has also stated that they are transitioning away from petrol/diesel into electric. Every line will have an electric option (what I read said 2020/2021) and they will be moving to all electric/hybrid.
I can't wait to see what their reliability looks like after these moves in the next few years. All I can say is Yikes.
Not to hijack the thread, but I cannot resist any further. That was like the single most ignorant comment, ever. To put the Slovakian car industry in context: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Automotive_industry_in_SlovakiaThey are also moving Discovery production out of the UK to freaking Slovakia...yikes. Tata developed the worlds cheapest automobile and it looks like they are doing everything to save a buck.
