Has anyone in the UK or Europe pre-ordered their EcoSport since Ford made 500 available last week? Let us know here we'd love to hear from you;

Hi Dan,Thought about it but I am not keen on black cars and would prefer the Diesel engine, it only appeared to be the 1.0 L petrol engine in black that was available.It would be interesting to hear from anybody that has pre-ordered one though to find out when the delivery will be.Cheers

Hi Red and welcome along!How did the pre-ordering process work then? Did you get to pick your local dealer? Any word on when you'll likely receive it?

Hi Dan

Yes, I got to choose my local dealer - I nominated them when I did the reservation. The dealer have said that the expected delivery date is toward the end of October for a 1 November registration. Can't wait !

Hi Dan,That's a good delivery, you will be driving about in it for quite a long time before anybody gets a dealer ordered one.Did you have the option of trading in your old car ?Cheers

Hi Andy

Well delivery date isn't confirmed yet - that's the expected date - we'll see!All that's happened so far is that I've had confirmation of the order and that I've been allocated one of limited editions. In terms of trading in the car - yes I am part-exchanging. The purchase/finance arrangements seem to be the same as any other purchase.

Wow that's great. You're going to be in a very exclusive club for a few months I think

Unfortunately this means you're going to have to keep filling us in on all the details and taking lots of pictures! haha

I got a voucher on Saturday. Have a week to make my mind up. The dealermade it clear the Special Edition carwill not be available until April next year.This morning there were 6 each available for the petrol or diesel, which is more than whenI got my voucher. The numbers go up and down as the order time lapses.Are they reasonable value? Not sure.

Wonder what is going on then - Red (above) was told they would have theirs next month. I thought the Ecosport would be on general sale in April...
I suppose value wise it would depend on any discounts Ford would be likely to offer on non-limited models.. The Fiesta Titanium X model costs £15,995 so it's a grand more.

HiI've just had an email from my dealer confirming my car is now showing on their dealer system and saying that they'll be in touch again when it's built and on its way. There was never any suggestion I'd have to wait until April as that's the planned general release. I'll be surprised if I get it for 1 November which is what was put on the paperwork, but I expect to have it before the end of the year. The price seems good value - when you price up the same model with the x pack and sync and metallic paint ( the only non-metallic paint is a bright yellow)you'll be saving about £1500 on list and with demand the dealer isn't expecting any lavish discounts - but as with anything it is a risk - for me it's worth taking for not having to wait until April.

That's good then. I like you wouldn't expect much in the way of discounts on a brand new car and at less than £1000 over the price of a Fiesta I think it's well worth it.

Order placed. Deposit paid. Confirmation received.
6 MONTH WAIT!!!!!
Well I cant complain that loudly as I fell in love with this car at first sight. I was a little disappointing that they haven't even started building the UK cars yet.
APRIL isn't that far away... right?!?!?!?

Hi Marc

Does your confirmation actually state that you have to wait until April? Mine didn't. My dealer said something completely different - they're talking November as this was a special early release - admittedly they haven't confirmed it yet.

Thanks
Red

Hi Red,
Yeah at the top right of the form I have it says: Delivery date 30/04/2014
I have ordered my car through Lookers Ford though.I have also got an Email from them saying that the cars haven't been scheduled a date to be built yet.

Hi Marc

That's useful - thanks. Have contacted my dealer now for clarification. Interestingly now on the ford.co.uk site you can configure the ecosport and there is a finance promotion on for ecosports ordered up to 31 Dec 13 and registerd by 31 March 2014 - that sounds like they expect some of the normal release cars to be on the road before April. I've put the link below. Am still hopeful to have mine before April but we will see - I'm not holding my breath!

I've asked Ford press office (who originally told me of their Facebook promotion) for clarification on delivery dates so we'll see what they come back with.

Ford have replied back to me and confirmed what has been mentioned above - The EcoSport Limited Editions will arrive around April time.
