Why don't I have a delivery date for my Hyundai?

I ordered my Hyundai ix35 in March 2010 and still no delivery date.

The car uses Hyundai/Kia's new R-Type chain cam diesel engine and because the companies are switching over engine production from the old belt cam 2.0 and 2.5 to the R-Type 2.0 and 2.2 there has been a temporary shortage of engines.
