TVR Griffith Production Pushed Back to 2020*
TVR has confirmed it'll be 2020 before the hotly-anticipated Griffith enters production, as European Union rules around factory construction take their toll.
After targeting a 2017 on-sale date, the car's delivery date was pushed back to 2019. TVR Heritage Director, Paul Thompson, has confirmed to AutoRAI a market launch during 2020 is now on the cards.
"It takes more time than we expected to start production, thanks to the rules of the European Union," Thompson said.
Demand is there for the car though. Thompson was very clear the initial allocation of 500 vehicles has already been snapped up.
"We already have buyers for all these cars," he explained.
"We expect to be able to build the first 500 copies in twelve to fourteen months. That comes down to about ten cars a week. The production rate is later increased," he went on.
"That is quite possible because there is a lot of stretch in the production capacity. We can even build up to 1,500 to 2,000 cars on an annual basis."
