Pre-Delivery Storage Conditions

If a car arrives at the dealer and sits outside in sub zero temperatures for a few weeks, maybe a month without the engine being turned over would this be detrimental? My dealer has no covered parking and I fear this may happen to my vehicle. Concerned.

No it should be fine. The cars are made to with stand much colder climates than the UK.

I would have thought that the dealership would want to get the motor to the customer as soon as possible, therfore no need to be out in the elements for long.
Do you mean, if the motor was getting some work done on it in the garage, it would be outside for up to a month ?
I'm not sure to be honest, but i would think it would be undercover somewhere.
