Waiting at least four months

According to the CEO of Toyota CR Martin Peleška, most stock cars have sold out in Europe and new orders are going to production, which means a waiting period of four to eight months for the Japanese manufacturer, but for some brands they may exceed one year.

At the same time, the carmakers have started to catch up with the shortages caused by the lack of chips and are driving at full speed.
