Toyota New Zealand announces Landcruiser 300 delivery delay

Toyota Motor Corporation has announced further global production adjustments last week due to ongoing COVID-19 disruptions, and the supply of essential parts including microchip shortages.

Toyota New Zealand can confirm that this will delay the delivery of new Land Cruiser 300s for customers till the beginning of 2022 as a result of componentry parts supply shortages.

“With Delta variant cases surging and extended lockdowns globally, a parts supplier in Malaysia has had to shut down for a short period of time,” says Steve Prangnell, Toyota New Zealand General Manager of New Vehicles.

“Unfortunately, this means that our customers who have ordered a Landcruiser 300 will now have their new vehicle delivered early in 2022,” he says.

“We understand this situation is hugely disappointing for our customers who were looking forward to having their new vehicle before the Christmas holiday period. We have reached out to those customers that are affected, either through their local Store or directly from Toyota New Zealand to apologise, and we want to thank them for their continued support and patience.”

However, Toyota is supporting the launch of the legendary Land Cruiser 300 in the coming months, by providing a limited number of vehicles in Toyota Stores as demonstrator vehicles. This will allow customers the opportunity to experience the new Land Cruiser first-hand, through test drives and Store events.

“We are working with customers while they wait for their new Land Cruiser to arrive and we want to reassure them that our team in New Zealand, and globally, are working hard to ensure we can mitigate as many COVID-19 related supply changes as possible,” he says.

All customers that are affected have been contacted individually, for more information please contact your local Toyota Store or 0800 TOYOTA.
