I also read due to the diesel scandal a lot more petrol engines are sold.
For example in Belgium this year 10% more petrol engines sold than in 2017.

Here the press release translated from Dutch :o

The rapid shift from diesel to petrol leads in many countries to the fact that the delivery times for new cars with a petrol engine continue to increase.

In Belgium, for example, it is reported that a T-Roc ordered today, the new small SUV from Volkswagen, will in the worst case only be delivered early 2019. Renault Belgium also states that the average delivery time for a petrol car, especially for larger models, has risen to three months. "If the trend continues, that average period can be longer," says a spokesman for Renault Belgium against De Tijd.

Negative publicity

In January, only 37 percent of the new passenger cars sold in Belgium were diesel. That share has therefore fallen by 10 percentage points in half a year. Last month, 11,000 more petrol cars were registered than diesel cars, according to figures from Febiac. Since some time, that trend is also clearly noticeable on the market for cars of the business where diesel was still as good as sole ruler in Belgium. In other European countries too, diesel is rapidly losing ground due to negative publicity.

I just read that in Germany thy will dicide today if there will be a total bann of diesel in a part of a (big)city .
That would be a first in europe ,
so others will follow. We already have zones in Belgium and France and Germany where u cannot drive old diesels. Some zones/country s are more strict than others.euro 4 banned some euro 3 and so on . So if you like it or not . The change will come . So i don't understand that a German Company that is in a country where there are zones that rule out diesels and old petrol for over 10 years cant antissipate the demand for petrol . Same can be said for electric VW will have to make a move to compensate the slow rollout of electric Cars and so forth

Hello, like the previous poster I am also new to the forum.

I ordered my T-Roc yesterday and was given a provisional delivery date of mid-November.

I was expecting a long wait, but it would be nice to have it earlier!

Also the dealer has given me the VW Order (tracking) Number today, which is not active yet, but from what I've read elsewhere on this forum it could take a couple of days to appear on the 'My Volkswagen' app.

1.5 TSI EVO SEL (Manual), Deep Black Pearl Paint.
