Anyone ordered an e-Niro?

Anyone ordered the Niro EV? Not the PHEV, the fully electric one.

Deliveries to start next month in the UK. Test drives available soon, cars are already at many dealers.

Same thing for Canada.. alot of pre-orders made from dealers to Kia Canada and the last message sent to dealers say's deliveries by the end of March... Except, no BEV's has arrived yet to the port of Vancouver.! As we speak, the only Test drive demo car is presently at the Vancouver Auto Show + the 2 (white and blue) "pre-production" demo model displayed at auto show across Canada.
For the rest, will beleive it when i will see them.!

There is much speculation about where the cars for the UK are, and if they will arrive before brexit to dodge the tariffs.

How is the spec for Canada? In the UK we got a mid range spec. 8" screen and some luxuries including autopilot, but no blue trump or ventilated seats. Also no app so far, but Hyundai do sell a dongle for the Kona so hopefully the Niro will be served too.

Since day 1, there is speculation's all over the world for this car.!



For Canada, only 1 trim model. The big 64 kwh battery SX (full load) and... no price out yet.!

The images on the Kia Canada site show the plain interior without the blue accepts or two tone colour scheme too. But at least you get the app and connectivity included!

UK prices are okay, finance deals are poor, accessories are a joke as ever. £60 for some mats... Nah.

Interesting. How do the prices compare with Tesla M3? Here in the US, we donít have firm price or spec yet, but rumors on both plus availability (limited to the ZEV states plus Texas and Georgia), make it a very poor choice compared with a M3.
BTW, I heard that production volumes on the Kona EV are WAY down with no official reason given.

The Model 3 at the same price (at least the expected UK price) is poor value compared to the Niro.

No autopilot, less range, no leather seats, less tech, less space, the leaky boot...

The only real issue is availability, mainly because LG can't make batteries fast enough to satisfy demand. They increased production over their initial plans but demand is still massively exceeding capacity.

The real issue is: like @comadose said: AVAILABILITY... Hyundai will produce less BEV Kona and give some of their "in stock" LG battery to Kia so it can produce the Niro BEV..
** Got come good news from my Vancouver contact. As we speak, some BEV Niro's are already off the boat and on Canadian soil and will be delivered beginning of April.!

Just talked to a dealership in Maryland. They have one, and 12 more coming. List EX for $40,000 and EX Premium for $47,000. Not ready to purchase personally. Maybe in a few months.

It is not clear that sales have begun. The EV is still not listed on kia.com.
