demo car have usually a tag on..... people like you is waiting since 7 months now..... the waiting is over, they have to deliver because customers have legitimate expectations due to the fact that production started officially almost one month ago

UK deliveries were supposed to start by middle May, there is no sense to pile up cars in the factory parking lot.....

I can only hope you're right. In March my dealer showed me the order confirmation with a dealer date of May 29th....

Ciao!

As Ryan said "rest of world" deliveries imply customs, harbors and ships and the related official passages

UK deliveries are simple "put the bloody car on a truck and leave it where I tell you"

UK folks could probably watch their XE making its way out of the facility to the dealer

They should use the helicopter delivery method from the Launch event :-)

Great to see the XEs making it out of the factory, and I completely agree that they should use helicopters for delivery. It would be much more dramatic.

There isn't much time to wait now for those of you in the UK.
