Update on Toyota extended delivery times

Updated Toyota brand logo

Like many other businesses, Toyota is currently experiencing delays in the global supply chain for some of our components and this has unfortunately led to longer delivery times on some of our more popular new vehicles. In addition we are seeing unprecedented demand for our Hybrid Electric products.

Please be assured that our focus remains on doing everything we can to deliver our cars as quickly as possible and making sure that you have the most up to date information. Toyota’s global strength in production planning means that we have so far managed to minimise the impact of the shortages, but the global issues will result in delivery times longer than we would like.

Our Dealer network partners will have the very latest information and will be able to advise the best options for you, including the earliest available vehicles or sourcing our Approved Used cars.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.


  1. Hi I’ve asked my dealer about the progress of my car and they say that it’s still not been an acknowledged order. Is there any way of chasing it up from head office? It’s a New yaris.

  2. Is there a way of tracking the order once placed by the dealership?

    I have logged into myt and nothing is showing.

      1. Hi, I didn’t ask about delivery times.

        I asked if there is a way of tracking my order using MyT?

      2. Hi there,
        We apologise about that miscommunication.
        However, this is also something your Toyota Centre would be able to help you set up.

  3. My dealership don’t answer any questions. I would also be interested in tracking my order in MyT and I did ask the dealer about this and they never responded. They cant even confirm if the order is placed with Toyota or not. Maybe I didnt make the right choice by choising Toyota as my next car.

    1. James, I have the same issue.

      Placed my order at the end of August. I want to track it on MyT so that I am not emailing the dealership every week for an update.

      @toyota happy to share further details with you.

    2. I would very much like to track my order too. I ordered in March and the only update I get is that there’s no update whenever I call. No VIN/Reg has been provided and on the order form, it was supposed to have been delivered on Oct 1st, 3 months later than the dealer estimated.

      1. Hi Lee,
        We are sorry to hear this.
        Can we please confirm you are referring to tracking your order through the MyT app?

    3. I’m having the same issue, my RAV 4 has been showing as order processing since July. Phoned the dealership to make sure it was still coming on my delivery date and they assured me no other cars had been delayed and the app doesn’t get updated very often. After chasing it up further up the chain it turns out they’ve not even started to build my car in Japan, it might come in February but probably not. Wish I’d never bought a Toyota now.

    4. MyT is hopeless, ordered Yaris Jan 22, got MyT set up but it tells you is order placed and now the order has disappeared from the system. Contacted dealer and to be honest they are totally vague, seem to promise a delivery date when order is placed knowing there is not a hope in hell of it being met.

  4. New Corolla TS GT on order, Lister Toyota inform me 6 November delivery, but nothing showing on my Toyota in new car delivery?

  5. I ordered a new Yaris Dynamic in August and still no further information, the MyT app says they haven’t even started building it yet. If it’s not here by December then I am cancelling my order. I can get a new Suzuki Swift in 4 weeks.

    1. Hi James,
      Thanks for your comment.
      We would recommend contacting your Toyota Centre, they are best placed to assist you in updating your MyT app.
      Please let us know if you have any further questions.

      1. There is no point directing customers to the dealers, they don’t know any more than we do. You need to contact the factories and get us some idea of when the car is coming, not keep extending the delivery times over and over again.

  6. Hi we ordered a rav4 in July and the app says it’s been built (took 7 days ) now it’s showing left the factory in Japan. How long does shipping take.

    1. Hi Kevin,

      Thanks for getting in touch, and for your interest in the Hilux.

      Deliveries are scheduled for September, due to high demand. We know it will be worth it though!


      1. Hello.
        What is the estimated delivery date for a Toyota rav 4 if It was ordered in November 2021.

        Thank you

      2. Hi Alistair, thanks for your comment.

        The current lead time for the RAV4 Hybrid is September 2022, however this will depend upon the grade, powertrain and any accessories chosen.
        Your local Toyota Centre is best placed to advise further on this.


    1. Hi Kevin,

      Thanks for getting in touch. Due to popularity of Hilux, deliveries for new orders are currently scheduled for September.

      We know that’s a long time, but it will be worth the wait!


  7. Information on delivery seems very sparse. I ordered a Corolla in late Sept via a dealer. My Toyota shows “processing order” and has shown the same for weeks. My dealer is unable to get a build date (or even an estimate) and, whilst I expected some long delivery times when I placed the order (Brexit, etc.), I’m currently frustrated that 6 weeks after placing the order, it hasn’t yet been processed and gained a slot in the Toyota build schedule.
    How on earth do I get a reasonable estimate for delivery (and please don’t say “contact the dealer” as they seem to be as much in the dark as I am)?

    1. Hi Ian,
      Toyota, like many other manufacturers are currently experiencing delays in vehicle deliveries due to part shortages.
      Please be assured we are focused on delivering our cars as quickly as possible and making sure that you have the most up to date information.
