  4. Has anyone had rodent issues?

    Kia Niro
    We live in the woods and have had problems in our old cars with rodents building nests and chewing wiring. Has anyone had any problems with this on a Niro or other EV? We are about to go on a 2 1/2 week trip and I am worried when we get back they will have done some damage. Does anyone have...

  6. Should I go for it? Is it worth it?

    Kia Niro
    Hey all, we test drove the e-niro on Sunday, and I must admit I'm in love. It is quite pricey for us though. Does anyone have advice on whether or not it is worth it? Someone on a leasing forum said my love affair with the car would be over in a week, but I don't think that's true. How are your...
  7. Tyre choice and efficiency

    Kia Niro
    So the Niro looks like it ships with Michelin Primacy 215/55/17. Looking at the tyre retailer sites, this doesn’t look to have a desperately low rolling resistance. Anyone any idea how much difference this makes in reality to the efficiency of an EV?
  8. OLEV grant for installation of power point?

    Kia Niro
    Has anyone used their Niro "order" to get the grant to have a charging/power point installed, ready for when their Niro is delivered? Do OLEV know about the e-Niro yet in the UK? I recall people who ordered the Kona had to wait until the OLEV people were made officially aware of the Kona's...
  9. Moved from BEV to PHEV

    Kia Niro
    I have moved to a Niro PHEV from a Leaf 40kwh and I am glad I have done it! I have found the Leaf to be a great car but the worry about the range or lack thereof when I take a longer trip has become tiresome. With my daily commute being 30ish miles I will be driving as an EV 5 days a week but...
  10. UK pre-orders for the Niro

    Kia Niro
    I've not been able to find when Kia are going to start taking orders. I figure if we watch this thread, when someone discovers when and how to place orders, we'll hopefully be early in the queue.
