Land Rover sees 4-month wait for new models, running plant 24-hours a day
As a result of these moves, the brand's UK factory is reportedly running 24 hours a day, five days a week, with would-be buyers of the most luxurious and expensive models, the Range Rover and Range Rover Sport, are waiting up to four months to get their SUVs. "Depending on where you are in the country, I would say the average is about a four-month wait right now for those products," Kim McCullough, the brand's vice president, told Edmunds.
The wait times should go down, though, according to McCullough. Production is "getting up to a point where we are producing enough vehicles to meet demand," after an unknown production issue.
Range Rover sales in 2013 saw a 56-percent increase, with 12,221 SUVs finding homes with US buyers, while the brand's overall US sales jumped 15 percent, to over 50,000 units. "It is amazing how many people have owned five, six, seven Range Rovers," McCullough told Edmunds. "That is a vehicle they consistently have in their household fleet. We have a lot of loyalty."
