Kia cuts e-Niro waiting times, promises September 2020 delivery

Kia has significantly cut waiting lists for its popular e-Niro – promising those who order now delivery in time for the new 70-plate registration in September.

The firm has achieved this by securing extra supplies of the e-Niro from its South Korean factory.

“Intense demand” helped the UK importer make the case to its parent company for extra cars: already, in July, it delivered more e-Niro than in the whole of 2019.

The e-Niro has proven popular thanks to its combination of 282-mile driving range (382 miles for those who stick to the city) and good value prices starting from under £30,000 once the Plug-in Car Grant is taken off.

Kia Motors UK president and CEO Paul Philpott said: “The Niro family has brought increased variance, style and eco credentials to our UK product offering.

“With the additional e-Niro availability coming to our shores, it places our dealer partners in a better position to satisfy the huge demand we have received for the vehicle.”

Kia adds that those who have already placed an order for an e-Niro will also get their cars more quickly than expected – meaning the firm’s dealers will be able to give customers a welcome surprise.

Extra supplies of the Soul EV have also been secured, cutting waiting lists for that car, too.
