After a new Toyota, but not sure how long you'll have to wait?

Issues such as semiconductor chip shortages and shipping problems have affected the ability of manufacturers like Toyota to keep cars flowing into Australia.

As such, the Japanese brand's models are experiencing some delays.

It's worth noting that some models are in greater supply than others, with flexibility around powertrains, specification and vehicle colour likely to see a vehicle in your driveway sooner.

May 2023: The latest on Toyota delays

Overall, according to Price My Car, the average wait time in April for a Toyota was 230 days – compared to 172 days in January 2022.

The quickest to get hold of is the Fortuner SUV at 82 days, followed by the HiLux with a 190-day average wait and Camry sedan/hatch with a 211-day delay.

The worst affected is the Yaris – which buyers have to wait, on average, 319 days for.

According to Toyota, supply in particular of the Camry and RAV4 hybrids is currently constrained, and wait times remain long for the LandCruiser models – with a stop sale continuing on the LandCruiser 70 Series ute.

A spokesperson for Toyota Australia previously told us: "Demand for new vehicles is at unprecedented levels. In Australia, to support the strong demand, Toyota has been continuing to work closely with our global production teams to secure as many vehicles for our market as possible, and minimise any impact.

"Wait times will vary depending on the model, variant and specification requirements of each customer. Due to the ever-evolving nature of this situation, Toyota dealers are best placed to continue to provide updates to our customers on delivery timeframes for individual orders."

With all of the above in mind, it is important to consider this article a guide only.
