The waiting time also depends on the variant selected. The Standard variant will be delivered a little sooner, perhaps around 3 months, give or take.

Higher rung variants like Premium and Flagship will take around 6 months. This suggests a high percentage of buyers opting for Premium and Flagship variants.
