I'm all confused now.

So, last week I've got a call from the import company because of my complaint to the CEO of Seat at LinkedIn. They've told me expected production Q4.
I've sent a mail to my dealer with the question to cancel my order since production Q4 will be delivery in 2023 and that will give problems for me.
My dealer replied they've checked everything with the import company again. My order has no options which are subject of extra delay and the factory in Spain will prioritize my order.

So, they are doing everything to keep my order for the Cupra Leon ST PHEV.

In the same time, customers from Seat Leon PHEV's are getting the message their order will not be produced this year and they get the choice:
1. Waiting and hoping it will be delivered before summer 2023
2. Changing the order to a petrol
3. Cancel the order.

Why are they so difficult to cancel my order while others get to hear it is better to cancel? Even to the point they say my order is getting prioritized, which is actually impossible. I can not believe they will build a car sooner for just one insignificant customer.

Hi there, new to these forums and first comment here but have been following along as I have a Seat Leon PHEV on order since nov 21.

Just curious where you have heard about people with Seat Leon PHEV orders getting the message their order wont be produced this year?

Multiple dutch forums. My dealer told me cupra is getting prioritized and since the import company said production in Q4 for my order (september 2021) I believe them.

From what I have read in Spanish forums, they have cancelled PHEV orders because they are not producing them anymore. In 2023 they will start again, but the price won't be the same. They are offering two options, giving the money back or buying a Cupra PHEV (but they don't guarantee you anything). Also, some people have been told that Cupra Formentor PHEV has priority.

In my case, I have a FR GO XL eTSI that was produced during the first week of June, but I'm still waiting because there aren't dynamic rear lights available.

I know the dynamic indicators have been removed but does anyone know if the coast to coast light bar has been removed as well on the new Leon builds?

This is exactly what my dealership told me.

They proposed to change my Seat Leon to a Cupra Leon (both hybrid), or I could cancel my order and get my money back.

I asked if there was any possibility for me to get the actual car I ordered within a reasonable time frame, but they told me that I would probably have to wait for a whole more year or so, and even I might still not get the car (I ordered in Dec 2021).

The thing is, if they persuade all Seat orders to be switched to Cupras, they waiting times will become huge for the Cupras as well..

They also said that MY23 has started, so even if the order was made last year, I still won’t get dynamic indicators..

How would this work with orders for leased cars though?
