Right now they're delivering a lot of LX models, and a few EX models. The EX Premiums don't seem to be making it here, I noticed a couple delivered in Colorado and Texas but they're not making it any further East than that. I'm still waiting for one.It might also depend on where you are and what trim level you are looking for. Here around Washington DC there are ~40 PHEV Niros (mostly LXs with a few EXs thrown in, no Premiums) within 100 miles.
If you are looking specifically for an EX Premium then yeah, those are evidently made of unobtanium. When I found mine it was the only one in the Mid-Atlantic.
Probably best to be patient like Alex said, it seems like the PHEVs are rolling out slowly and a bit unevenly.
Yep, that was my reasoning for wanting the Premium as well. Its a nicer car with more featues including obviously the PHEV part for the same money. I was lucky enough to find one nearby and jumped on it. Even better, we used the Costco car buying service and got additional $2300 off MSRP. >Part of the problem is the math: an EX Premium with the nationwide $4500 tax rebate actually nets out to be cheaper than the regular Hybrid EX model with the Premium package (by about $3000 I think). And you arguably get better equiment (LED headlights, better dash, larger electric motor).
