It's not that uncommon for new cars to need an aligment, espcially cars being shipped all the way from across the world. I'm not sure if dealers check alignments, or even if all of them can, but typically the alignment is set at the factory. BUT, jossels and bumps from shipment, espically if teh car is tied down too tight/loose, or imporperly, can throw the alignment out. And a car that was just barley 'in spec' at the factory is not out of spec. I'm not sure what the acceptable range is for this car, but usually the 'in-spec' range is quite large, and even a car 'within spec' can have poor tracking, pulling, or tire wear.
