I ordered my PHEV directly on the Hyundai Canada web site on Aug 08 2021 and chose Brossard Hyundai, QC for my dealer at the moment of order for a delivery location.
I got my delivery on Mar 04, 2022.

Yes, I understand you, this waiting time is sooooooooo long and dealers are just so bad at giving proactive feedback.

To help you, Hyundai Canada sent me the following updates by emails, just to give you an estimate of my delays :

Aug 8, 2021 : My Order with 500$ deposit;
Nov 18, 2021 : Email that my PHEV was in the waiting list for factory built;
Jan 10, 2022 : My PHEV was built and ready for shipment to canada from Korea;
Feb 7, 2022 : My PHEV was in Canada in transit to the Hyundai Depot (I don't know where this is, I guess in BC ?);
Feb 22, 2022 : My PHEV was delivered at my dealer (Brossard Hyundai, QC);
Mar 04, 2022 : My dealer finally got time for my delivery !.

Hope it helps

Thanks for the timeline update. All we can hope is they play some catch up and it arrives sooner than this fall. Really wanted it for the summer. With the way the gas prices have gone (175.9/litre) here in Edmonton this morning, the PHEV would really help out!

Cant' rely on miles/gallon for happiness anymore...
It's all about the smiles/gallon
Oh yes ! This thing is sure a MPG wonder compared to my 2018 Mitsubishi PHEV (n).

If you have a short commute...like I do (60km daily), you can get crazy low consumption... That makes me smile ;)

Welcome to the forum. I got my PHEV in Nov 2021 and have about 10,000 km on it. Enjoying it greater and with these current gas prices, enjoying it even more. Now that the weather is getting a bit milder, I rarely turn heat on and run EV in city driving entirely. Last tankful I had including highway travel to Ottawa and back (approx 300 km ) I got 700 km on the tank. I'm sure that will improve when snow tires come off.

Ohh yeah, I can't wait to remove the snow tires and get better range as well. Up to now, I'm very impressed since even with my jumbp Thule ski box and snow tires, I was able to get up to 1,300 on the same fuel tank and I still have 35% fuel left on the tank filled by the dealer. I use the ICE once in a while just to justify the first oil change !

Thanks for the welcome :)

I didn't realize that you could order directly on www.hyundaicanada.com, were there any benefits to doing it this way? I have a $500 deposit in at a dealership in Edmonton but I would much rather deal directly with Hyundai if that's an option. Don't trust these dealerships at all

I don't think it will change anything in your case.

Even I ordered directly from Hyundai Canada's web site, I had to select a dealer for my delivery at the moment of order. A couple days after clicking "order now" and paying 500$, I got a call from the dealer and had to go to the dealer a couple days after to complete the order.

Ordering from the web gave me more confidence than the dealer.

In my case, I ordered from the Hyundai Canada website because I had more trust.
ah so basically the online order was a middle step and you still had to complete everything through the dealership. That's too bad, I have had nothing but issues with dealerships already with some wanting $800 "admin fees". The one that I decided to go with repeated multiple times that they would be charging msrp with no additional fees, then sent me an invoice with random anti theft fees (on top of etching etc) and vastly inflated tire and other taxes. They then said that these are optional but I am very suspicious that these "optional" charges might become not optional when the Hyundai ordering portal opens and I essentially have the choice to pay what they want or wait another year.

My dealer was super clean, have nothing to say. I payed 0$ extra. and what you mentions sounds a bit like my experience.

This might no be a fact, but I was under the impression that having a logged transaction via Hyundai Canada's web site for my order was securing my order position and price.
So did the online order really gave me added pricing security by freezing the price to the online order agreement amount? i don't know.
I can confirm that my dealer was super fair and did not changed me a penny more than the price displayed on my screen when I clicked "Order now" that was MSRP in Aug 2021.

They tried to upsell me crap as well (etching, insurance, bla bla bla). Theses are optional, but the dealer tried and insisted. I told the financing person upfront I would say NO to everything, so I suggested to sign the papers and we could both save an hour of our lives. She said okay right away and it was a perfect and pleasant experience from my side.

I think that dealers will try upsell their stuff, they are in business after all, but if they see that the customer is informed and ready to fight for it, they chill out and let got.
Hope your transaction goes well, I know mine did and the PHEV is well worth the wait.

Here in QC, illegal fees are a hot subject, there is a 4th lawsuit against theses added fees practices from the dealers.
Buyers here are simply fed up of the crapulous practices :
