Just heard from my dealership..... well- it isn't any substantial news but at least it is a heads up: " there will be a corporate announcement within a week or so to clarify and to outline ETAs." So, we will see what the scoop is- hopefully!!

I just received an update that the production date has been delayed until October for the 2018 model year A3 Sportback e-tron.

All of the existing sold orders that are already allocated will be scheduled into production, but, they do not expect to allocate additional production spaces for arrival this calendar year.

It sounds like the car will not arrive in Canada until November/December

Had the same update "Distribution is unable to give us an exact production date as they are prioritizing sold units over stock units for production slots. There are currently over 100 sold units that are affected. They are telling us that they will be able to give us an eta in September."

Soooo... We put the deposit in on for the 2018 May 11th according to the dealer its about 3 months from manufacture day to get to Canada.
I'm inclined to think that it will be closer to end of January for me to have the keys in my hand.

If this is true, then they are crazy. I ordered my e-tron in March (then a 2017 model) and have been patiently waiting for an August delivery, but now have no confidence that my car will arrive this year (if at all). I'll wait and see what my dealership says, but this does not sound good at all.

FWIW I ordered my 2017 in June 2016. We rolled off the lot together Dec 2016, 6 months and a day later. This is in Canada.
Don't buy this car if you have a tight timeline, unless you are lucky enough to find a cancelled order that fits your needs.

My Canadian dealership confirmed that production is delayed until October for the first orders made in 2017. Any new orders will only be produced in early 2018.
