Congrats @Tony 154! Welcome to the forum! Is the bZ4X your first EV? What sold you on ordering one?
Had Toyotas for a number of years now. Mainly because of the reliability and our local dealers are quite good. Always on PCP, have it for 2 years and just chop it in.
Had Hybrid Rav4 and currently Corolla Tourer hybrid.

Why did I order one?? Originally I booked an Ioniq 5, but the sales manager dealer was so so rude to me and my wife I cancelled there and then.
EVs are the way to go, most of my journeys are 36 mile round trip to work, taking the dogs out no more than 6 miles round trip and the rare long range trip couple times a year.

Hi also from the UK - ordered a stock Motion last Monday. I'm in the interesting position where I would happily pay for extra, but I prefer "normal" tyres and the panoramic roof mainly is just a range killer and a new way for the sun to get in my eyes while driving.

Ordered in black too - while the US cars look OK with the black wheel arches, in the UK those wheel arches are scratchy plastic like the Solterra, and I can't see that looking anything but weird, especially in dark blue, the only other colour I would have chosen. I guess that's Toyota's loss not mine...

Delivery I was told was September, and in My Toyota says 19th August, but I don't know how much that will be held up by the recall.

No idea how many my dealer has on order, but they're a pretty large company that only has Toyota group garages, so I am assuming quite a few, and I assume my car was already part of their contracted order.

I heard that some people get their panoramic roof tinted, is that something you would do?

I quite like the roof but I would rather have the range, better handling and headroom as I’m 6’5”. You can feel on the RAV4 that it is top heavy and I assume that’s at least partly due to the roof.

I wouldn’t mind it being tinted or the electronic “shade”, but I don’t really trust the flimsy curtain shade so always leave it open.

Thank you for info. You use the website and where do you see it exactly? Is it under my car? I ordered 2 weeks ago but cant see anywhere? :(
On the website it’s in “my vehicles”, and there is a purchased section. If it’s not there, your dealer needs to associate it with your account. I don’t know if they can do this with your email address, or if they did mine via my existing car.

Thank you Bro! I contacted my dealer Inchcape Toyota Sandhurst. It is like a joke they couldnt put my order in process because of the global recall. And they dont even bother to inform! It is a real shame, I was expecting delivery in september because I thought my order is secure 😔 now I dont when I will receive the car. I will definetely complain to Toyota UK I dont know why they waited! Because I had paid the deposit before the global recall!!!
