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.
