The production of the Land Cruiser 300 Series is the worst affected, as its production facility will remain closed for an entire month.
According to a media report, the waiting period for the new (2022) Toyota Land Cruiser 300 Series SUV could extend up to 4 years.
The extended waiting period is said to be a result of the 40% reduction in production capacity, forced by the global chip shortage. Reports also suggested that the production of the Land Cruiser 300 Series is the worst affected, as its production facility will remain closed for an entire month.
The Toyota Land Cruiser 300 Series was unveiled globally earlier this year. Pre-bookings for the LC300 opened on 2 August 2021, and since then, Toyota is said to have received an overwhelming response. The company is already said to have garnered over 20,000 orders for the flagship SUV, with 90 per cent of these bookings are for the ‘ZX’ and ‘GR Sport’ trims.
Reports suggest that while the waiting period of some variants will be 2 to 3 years, customers who have booked the ZX and GR Sport, could end up waiting for the longest; with an expected period of up to 4 years.
