When I bought my Volt in early November I was told to expect the car in early December. I found out today that my car won't even begin assembly until Jan 14. Has anyone else experienced such a delay? How long once the assembly begins will it take to get the car? Is a fully loaded black on black Volt that rare they had to build one?

I am in Calgary, not sure if that changes anything.

Don't know about shipping to your area but, mine took a month to arrive. Others further west got theirs sooner. My dealer was left scratching his head over that one.

Ours was special ordered because of the wheels - incl./black inserts.
2013MY, Black w/Pebble Beige interior, all options except visor and California emissions.

Hope it happens sooner than you're expecting!

Cheers,

Inventory is so low in the United States, it is not surprising that export sales are being delayed (just a guess). They have been operating for 7 weeks now, and we've only seen inventory tick up by about 500. We are down about 2,000 from our highs, and the California area is about 1/3 full.

Any notion of Ampera and Holden cars...Some time back they were scheduled for a fall production run?

I am a little miffed it is going to take so long, November to almost March? That is almost four months.

I showed up at the dealer that had 6 or more in stock and drove home in a new 2013 4 hours later. Might be better to look for who has them right now, and just go there. I know that doesn't apply to Canada but for the US it's nice to be able to just go get one.
Bought and taken home oct 27th.
