    I've had a new e350e on order through my company car scheme since around April. I have recently been told that there is still no build slot allocated and an expected delivery date is now 30 January 2018 (originally estimated at 10.October 2017). I am told there is a 'heavy restriction on the e350e engine' The factory has not advised the reason for this and I wonder whether anyone knows more or has had a similar experience.

    wasn't there issues with the hybrid vehicles? something about them catching fire, from memory, so possibly restricted due to needing parts for the recall that was around for the ones that weren't burnt out?
