  1. General EV Discussion
    In my last video I showed you how you could save money by replacing the rubber portion of the wiper blades on your EV (also applies to ICE vehicles). In this part 2 of 2 video I show you how you can breathe cleaner air in your car by replacing the cabin filter once per year, yourself, and save...
  2. General EV Discussion
    Electric cars require very little maintenance as compared to gas cars, but did you know that you can save money by doing two really simple things yourself, at home, and have less of an impact on the environment? My Kia Niro EV, or e-Niro in Europe, makes it easy for me to show you how to replace...

    About to pull the trigger on a eNiro 4 for £430 a month over 48 months. I also have the option of a Kona Premium 64 for £420 but only 36 months, both on lease. Would you say these are good deals? The eNiro felt like a lot more car for the price but I am not sure if I should go for the lower...
  4. Kia Niro
    If you own a Kia Niro, not just the EV version, but any version, then you will probably be interested in this video. Are you fed up of the backup camera being unusable when dirty, wet, or snow covered? This little device solves the problem.
  5. General Kia EV Discussion
    The Kia Niro EV has a weak point that has bothered me since purchasing the car on May 6th 2019, the reverse lights are useless. I found a solution and created this video to help others. If you have any questions, please let me know.

    Hello. Just got Kia niro EV a few days back. Everything that is fine. Except it seems I could not find a space in the front door number plate.. Any observations?
  8. 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...

The interview will happen by phone and it also involves a 4-days diary with video-selfies about driving, charging and overall satisfaction. There is a...
  10. 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...
  11. 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?
  12. 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...
  13. 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...

    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.
