new car delivery dates

In 2022, Australian new car delays have hit historic highs largely due to COVID-related factors. Like other industries, vehicle production as been hit by factory closures and logistics problems but in addition a global supply shortage of semiconductor computer chips has caused huge production delays around the world. At the same time, COVID uncertainty has done anything but dampen consumer demand as Australians pour their disposable income into new vehicles.

This summary of waiting times and new car delivery dates has been put together using real data from 50,946 new car quotes and orders since January 2019. Note that the data is based on the date/month that the quote/order was written and so figures may change as ETAs are updated by dealers and manufacturers. These delivery date estimations should be considered as a guide only!
