When I took delivery of my MG HS on Friday. I spoke with the dealers and they advised 4000 cars arrived this month and they are expecting another 4000 next month, so hopefully they are starting to get things rolling with all the orders.

They also said that MG has just under 40,000 cars on order just now with 16,000 built and awaiting shipping this is including the ones that have just arrived though.

Don't know how true this is but no reason for them to make it up as I already have my new car馃榿

Hi all,
Like most people on here I鈥檓 still waiting delivery of my HS which apparently is going to be delivered in July
after initially being told March.
Yesterday my wife got a phone call from the dealer where the order was placed to be told that July is still the delivery month but the vehicle will not have DAB radio but we can run a cable from the glovebox to the USB slot, we can either accept this or cancel our order does this sound correct????.
thanks for letting me rant.

Sounds like the chip shortages have meant no Dab units are available. So depending on how you view DAB radio could make it a deal breaker for you?

Hi I'm new to this forum
A little bit of my background on my dealings with MG
I ordered a new MG HS Excite Auto in blue early July 2021 and was told delivery would be October 2021 that became November then December now can not get any updates have been told chip shortage then MG are changing the blue and that would be a few weeks hold up until colour update as of 11th January still no delivery date after 7 months, I have found the names of 3 ships MG have used to deliver to UK in the past and have been looking on a ship tracker application but none are near or on way to UK
Can I ask if anyone else is having delivery problems or have heard any news on deliveries from there dealer or any information on ships or shipping routes, it would be nice to find out any information as I'm beginning to forget what a MG HS looks like
We have been waiting since mid August 2021 and Arnold Clark don't bother to call us.....VERY ANNOYING !

We ordered a ZS in July and no sign of a build date yet, let alone delivery. Its true Brixton Blue is no longer available. I read a few days ago, that they had stopped all petrol deliveries towards the end of last year to stay within manufactures CO2 requirements. Epsom MG is suggesting a lot of petrol stock is arriving for March.
Hi I ordered a hs exclusive dynamic red in January 2022 I was told delivery about may, then June, then July today I received a call from mg Epsom saying August.

My original delivery date was Febuary a 2 month delay but that was out of dealership hands may have been Chinese holidays or a very slowboat
I originally placed my order on 30th April 2021 & finally collected my new car on 8th April 2022. It wasn鈥檛 the colour that I ordered, nor the colour that it had been swapped to after MG withdrew the Brixton Blue - I only found out that my new car would be black when the hoist installer sent me photos of the installation, the day before collection. So I really hadn鈥檛 been kept informed.

Anyway, I do now have my new MG HS with which I am very pleased - worked out most of the new tricks and I only see it鈥檚 not a shade of blue when I鈥檓 not driving it, or if I ignore seeing the bonnet. 馃槅

I do have DAB radio though, I saw a post from another forum member that they鈥檇 been told that DAB was not now available on their ordered car.
From what my salesman said, any colour apart from black or white would not be arriving until later in the year. 馃槦

It seems that the microchip shortage continues and after a statement from the CEO of Motability, which arrived the day after I鈥檇 been told that my car was then in the county, that the current war in Ukraine would cause additional delays on delivery dates. 馃

Hope everyone gets their new car very soon. I鈥檓 loving mine, after the long, long wait. 馃槉

It is a legal requirement for cars to be fitted with DAB (assuming a radio is fitted). At least it was a couple of years ago! One of the reasons MG dropped their lowest spec models.

Just to add we ordered our white ZS exclusive at the end of Jan with delivery dates of the end of May. Just called the dealer who says it's now end of August.

We also got told about the DAB and they will provide the cable etc.

Dab radio legality. Google dab car radio legal and all the info is there. As this is a European law I'm not sure if it still applied but it certainly did, from Dec 2020 I believe.
