Hi Rexleroy and terry3dy welcome to the forum. I have a 2016 Ecosport I bought new and it took just 8 weeks if I remember from the Indian factory to make and ship it over to the UK, but now the new facelift Ecosports for the UK are made in Europe so no idea how long the waiting list is. Sorry about that terry3fy, maybe someone else waiting will tell you the average number of weeks to deliver, but over 10 weeks seems a lot.
Every time i go into a Ford dealership now. they have plenty new Ecosports there in the showroom, all trim levels. So if anyone is willing to buy an already made one on the spot, there will be no waiting list. My own local dealership had about four new ones, and two demonstrators. I would not want to wait long for a car.
Recleroy, I intend to do what you have done when going for another Ecosport soon, I will get one with low mileage, as there are plenty demonstrators available, to save thousands on the list price, and pay what I would think of as a more realistic price. The new Ecosport is well overpriced now.(my own opinion)
When I bought mine in 2016 they were around £16k to 17k new, I bought the base Ecotec trim model at just over £16k, but now they want over the £20k mark for what is a small SUV and I am not willing to pay that. Going by internet websites like Autotrader, Ebay, and Ford 'nearly new' website, there are plenty pre-reg Ecosports available, some with no mileage or very low mileage available, and I will go for that. Another option if you are willing to travel is car discount websites like CarWow, where usually the cheapest discount offer is at the other end of the country, but I have bought many previous cars a long distance away, if the price is right, as you can get service and repairs at your local dealership, no matter where you buy the car
