Why is there an eight month wait on the Mercedes-Benz C-Class hybrid?

I ordered a new Mercedes-Benz C-Class Estate plug-in hybrid over two months ago. I've now been told by the dealer that delivery will not be until March 2018 due to a shortage of engines. Do you think that this is a serious technical issue that Mercedes-Benz is trying to deal with, in which case should I cancel my order whilst I still can?

Fantastic depth of quality. Lovely cabin ambience and improved interior space. Very refined, quiet and composed – even the four-cylinder diesels.
