Canadian *confirmed* pre-order status updates?

10958 Views 98 Replies 16 Participants Last post by  -Strike-
Figured I'd start this thread for those of us 馃嚚馃嚘 with confirmed pre-orders to commiserate over the timing of getting delivery of our Zs.

I've been periodically checking in with my GTA dealership to get a status update. I continue to do this despite the fact that I figured out that I probably know more than the dealer does about the Z :giggle:. I checked in with the dealership this week and was told that they still have no updates as to timing -- and that their computer system isn't showing any progress either in terms of my vehicle (no VIN yet). I've kind of resigned myself to the fact that the Z may not arrive until mid-late August. Let's just hope it isn't that much later than August.

Anyone else heard anything?

. . . Meaning, Canada won't get any protos but our first Z's (ie the ones ordered in Jan/Feb) will arrive in the fall/winter . . .

They should really give us Canadians a set of free winter tires for our troubles...
If the cars don't arrive until October or later I'll be asking for free, indoor winter storage, not snowtires. Very disappointing.

Well....I decided to send Nissan Canada a DM. This is what I got back. Looks like we Canadians are going to have to wait even longer than "summer". I get the sense that our Zs will follow the phase 2 US launch process. Meaning, Canada won't get any protos but our first Z's (ie the ones ordered in Jan/Feb) will arrive in the fall/winter just like the US is expecting to see the base/performance spec Zs arrive after the protos.

During the Z pre-order in January and February, you could also order the Z Proto, but I don't like canary yellow.

Yep thought so. Probably one of the worst releases up to date. I get it if its a whole new car and parts need to be coming in but 370 chassis q60 motor? Interior looks so much similar and the trunk? Nissan needs some new faces honestly. Lack of communication and trying to release this garbage during winter IN CANADA?

If it's in October, or early Nov when I get the call for delivery. I am going to ask for a discount to keep it displayed in their showroom, over the winter or it comes home, and straight into the garage for storage mode until spring. What a shame. :( 70 thousand dollar garage ornament for the next 6-7 months until the salt is washed off the roads lmao

yup so it鈥檚 probably true, and this isn鈥檛 talking about performance/sport either so it could just be protos allocated first this year. Worst release yet, wish i had explored options earlier during the year. Wasted a whole spring/summer, now im guessing we wont see them until january

Any updates guys? I ordered during the online reservation campaign, it's being silence forever. I went to nissan toronto downtown and they told me there should be some cars on the boat... But no idea about how the online reservation will go.

I don't have any further updates. The comments you heard from Nissan Toronto are consistent with what my dealer told me in early August -- namely, that there may be some Proto's arriving in September that are independent/separate from the online orders. It's too bad we don't have any spies at the Vancouver port/terminal.....

Basically, Nissan has dropped the ball. You might get the car you ordered or offered what shows up is what I鈥檓 told. I鈥檝e also been told a pipe dream for a proto by Nissan canada executive鈥 was actually laughed at. I鈥檝e cancelled my pre-order
I wrote to Nissan Canada and here is their response:
Hello Donald, thank you for your interest in the 2023 Nissan Z. Due to supply issues affecting the entire automotive industry, there are delays that bring us to the fall of 2022.

Talked to some Nissan guys at Drive Festival up at Mopark, they said delays are becuase of metal shortage due to Russia exports being banned.
I was called in last week to spec out my car and send it out to the factory, no VIN and ETA sadly.
why Vin Not mention did you know the Vin was so important factor of the car because through the vin all the previous factor show
So, I decided to DM NissanCanada about the latest status of Canadian deliveries. Ummm... this is their reply:

Due to ongoing industry-wide supply-chain shortages, the delivery of vehicles has been delayed. Our team is monitoring the global situation closely. At this time, Nissan is currently not accepting new orders for the Nissan Z. As a pre-order Nissan Z customer, we appreciate your passion for the Z and your patience. Rest assured that once your vehicle is in transit, you will start receiving personalized information and next steps about your order. As a reminder, if you would like to cancel your order and obtain a full refund of your deposit, please contact us at [email protected].​
I am not really going to comment on this, except to say that there's no way in hell I'm cancelling my order. I will wait until my dying day for this car to arrive 馃コ

I feel bad, because this is still just an automated message. I've seen them copy-paste this on quite a few replies throughout social media platforms in the last month or more.

They have stopped taking orders until the spring, as per their website. However, they said expect delivery in the spring. But, what about those pre-orders? I'm a little sus.

Canada still hasn't seen a single car hit the roads. Meanwhile in the US, there's Proto's and Performance models driving around. Mind you, at crazy markups most times. Japan has had a ton of deliveries. AU is basically just dealership demos, maybe a car or two to the lucky set of hands. A NZ guy took delivery of a beautiful Gun Metallic. Most of the small islands have seen cars land on their shores. All small quantities, but.. at least there's some?

We're totally the last to market. If it's taken almost 10 months now with zero word from Pre-order status to today.. I have a really hard time thinking they're going to be delivering "New" spring orders.. in the spring.

I agree. It's also odd because when you look the VIN numbers that are out there, there seem to be a lot of cars that were produced but there's no sign of them on the actual roads except for the few that you mentioned above.

I get that they are probably being inundated with inquiries but this stock reply is also strange -- I wouldn't have included the phrasing about cancelling a pre-order unless I had suggested that's what I wanted. I think they could have just put in the language about supply chain issues and just left it at that.

Now it's November... Checked with my dealer couple days ago, at least my order is in their system. Sadly, no updates on the production and delivery date.
dont u just love automated responses?? we been getting automated ones ever since preorders. I鈥檓 not expecting any news until January, and even then im not optimistic about it. Here we go again, spring of 2023 this time.

I know it's sad, but at least this means the Z will be unobtanium rare in Canada for a while, which bodes well for the equity this car would hold.

Of course I'd rather keep it forever, but if I don't, it's good knowing I'll make most or all of my money back. That's not something I can say for most used cars out there right now, making the annoying wait ever so slightly more palatable. It's a shame this car has 0 direct new car competitors in Canada. You know what they say,

It eez what it eez
