Ordered my White XSE on March 16th.

Dealer just called and said that most likely will arrive in August. He mentioned that most of the RAV's made here are being shipped to the USA first. Also mentioned that i can get my deposit back if i don't want to wait.

Yeah the XSEs are hard to get at this time. I'm in Regina, Saskatchewan and apparently the RAVs are coming from USA here, go figure

Ordered XSE mid Feb. Was told delivery mid March. Now was told 7-9 months for delivery. Checked multiple dealerships all over ontario and can't find any XSE inventory. Don't know what's going on with the XSE and might just cancle my order.

The US-manufactured Rav4 HV are supposed to be built at their Kentucky plant (not sure if at any other US-based plants as well?). The small number of rav4 hybrids that have made it to dealers in Southern California where I live appear to have been built in either Japan or Canada. So not sure if this is indicative of slow or delayed startup in Kentucky or other reason...

7-9 months?!?! Won't the 2020's be available then? Why pay top dollar for an old model? Doesn't make sense...

While XSE inventory levels seem to be very low in North America, it is very early in the production of the HV. But to tell a customer they now only have visibility out 7-9 months on this trim seems a little fishy...I would recommend working with another dealer and/or sales person. That or wait a month or more to see if inventory levels (and associated factory production) start to meet demand. In the county I live in (Orange, CA), the three largest Toyota dealers only have 5 hybrid rav4s in stock among them, and this is an area that traditionally buys lots of hybrid vehicles...not to mention gas is now over $4/gallon herel.

7-9 months will probably be the year 2020

Ordered my white XLE hybrid on March 25, picked it up on April 16 (was delivered to the dealer on the 12th), basically same time the local dealers were getting their first deliveries.
