    Any official word on postponement due to Covid? I can’t imagine the delivery of vehicles not being delayed...
    Awful financial impact for JLR...

    I am sure there will be some delays:

    Nitra-based carmaker Jaguar Land Rover plans to resume its production on May 18. It was suspended on March 20.

    The Audi plant in Slovakia resumes production on that same day. I know someone that ordered a 2020 SQ7 and they just got notice that they will receive a 2021 SQ7 instead, sometime later this year.

    Definitely a strong competitor to the RRS:

    My 110 was supposed to be built on 4/3, but of course that date came and went since the Nitra plant shut down 2 weeks earlier. Dealer is now hoping for late July delivery (it was originally scheduled for late May arrival to Los Angeles.) We'll see. I hear from the dealer quite a few orders are being cancelled, as the financial situation of some buyers has, well, dramatically changed in the past couple of months.

    Well if there are a lot of cancellations, you may get your 110 sooner!

    Wonder about the price point on that one:
    Probably isn’t a more expensive engine to make than the others....

    Finally saw one in person. Was driving by the LR dealer yesterday and there was a green 110 sitting outside. Did a u-turn and came back to check it out. Was really dirty (covered in tree pollen) and locked since the dealer sales department is still closed. My first impression was that it is bigger and taller than I expected. Interior looks more "minimalist" and less luxury. Hope the seats are as comfortable as the LR4 seats. Wish the side windows were a little taller. Nice to see that the hood is below the front cowl. (Unlike the D5 view forward where you look under the rear edge of the hood) Finally, there is a lot of black plastic on the sides of a 110. They should include a large bottle of 303 Protectant with each sale.
