I think the best hypothesis was the gradual loss of battery capacity and the longer guaranty car manufactures have to give on HV batteries in the US.

There is quite a long thread on this subject. But no conclusion why it is lower.
I read that thread when I was wondering the same thing and was a little annoyed that there isn't a clear answer. However, at the end of the day and maybe like a number of others, I really only bought the 45e model this year for the tax credit. Getting great gas mileage and having that extra electric torque is just an added bonus.

Has anyone's actual production week moved versus the dealer slot? I am slotted for week 5, but my dealership told me it could move up, so wanted to see if anyone has experienced that. Thank you

Mine was scheduled for week 49 and was completed in week 48.

As far as less capacity of the battery being made available in US spec vehicles, I think the warranty theory makes sense. In any event, I would actually prefer a larger retained buffer at the expense of less range if it means improved battery longevity. Based on reading I've done on optimizing battery health since purchasing a Jaguar I-Pace early this year, lithium batteries are happiest between 20-80% SOC and running them down to a very low, or charging and keeping them very high, SOC degrades them faster. The usable capacity of batteries in BEVs are almost never completely exhausted because drivers don't want to be stranded, and they are not charged to full as often because for many people they have long enough range for several days of around town driving. Whereas, PHEVs like the X5 45e are likely to be exhausted and charged to full every day, so it seems very prudent for BMW to retain larger buffers at the top and bottom to maintain battery health.

Think of your order as being a reservation...you might book now for a cruise next summer, or a flight tomorrow. It all depends on what order slots your dealer has, and when he is willing to assign your order to it. Then, throw in holidays, and shipping time, whether that's by truck, ship, or rail...that has to get reserved, too, and they don't always run every day. Pop a snow storm or flood into the equation, and it can be hard to give an exact time, let alone supplier issues. The factory makes the body in house, but most other things come from suppliers spread out all over the world. A hiccup in any one of those, and it can throw things off.

Yesterday, mine changed to 'At the Port', which is odd because it is backwards one step. BMW Genius said that they expect it to be on a truck today. Oddly, they have an ETA of next week for dealer arrival even though the Renton, WA VPC is located only 30 minutes from the dealer. The CA also called and said that they expected the vehicle to arrive this week.

Here is an updated timeline:

• Ordered 10/20
• Sched for Prod 10/30, week 49
• Prod began 11/13
• Estimated completion changed 11/21. Was Dec 2, now Nov 25 per automated 800#
• Entered assembly line 11/25 beginning of the day
• Awaiting carrier assignment 11/25 end of day
• Dispatched from factory 11/30
• In Transit 12/6 (scheduled to arrive at Renton, WA VPC on 12/22)
• At the Port 12/28 (this is a step backwards in the timeline)

Mine was scheduled to arrive in Renton on 12/22. 6 days after that the status changed to 'At the Port'. If yours follows that pattern, maybe it will show up tomorrow...?

Kind of.

My first delivery date was November 2019. It was delayed until jan 2020.

Beginning of December met colleague collected his (ordered 2 months before me). And the sales rep told him mine arrived too. I wasn't expecting it all and was really happy offcourse with delivery one month earlier.

Called the dealer and they said the car wasn't at the dealership but arrived in Zeebrugge. Big deception. Finally got a call Friday 20/12 at 16h that it arrived at the dealership. To late to arrange papers and a weekend to send mails to the insurance etc. Picked it up 24/12 as a Christmas present.

Apparently some cars are just standing on the dock waiting for pick up. The dealership told me they can't change the order.

I would try to find out if it arrived in Ireland because if it hasn't they won't be able to deliver earlier. It takes a lot of spamming by phone and mail to speed the process.

Is anyone able to order 45e's recently or is everyone else on stop sale as well? I've had 2 dealers tell me they can give me an allocation but can't guarantee when it will be built if ever.

Hey everyone,

I placed an order with my dealer last week but my salesperson has not yet put the order into BMW's system(there's no place for me to track the order). Is this normal?

It sounds like they do not have a current allocation to place the order against. You will be waiting until they get an allocation for a 45e. Then they can put in the order and give you a number to track it by.
