Interesting question! I’m guessing it just goes to the next person in line but would love to know if you can.
I do wonder how many people are thinking the same as you though. I have one on order too as a business lease but only because there is no deposit to pay so I might as well keep the option open. The quote is more than I wan to pay really so when it comes time to switch next Aug-Oct I’m very likely to go Model 3 unless prices come down on the Niro.
So begs the question- how real is the Niro wait and will we suddenly see the wait reduce drastically as punters go elsewhere?
I have no idea what the actual numbers are, but from anecdotal evidence from the dealers we spoke to when ordering ours, and doing some quick man-maths to extrapolate, my guess is that there are in the region of 4-5000 orders on the waiting list in the UK alone.
We got the sense from the dealers that there had been cancellations, and it would be great if the wait time came down dramatically, but it would take a big drop out rate to make a significant difference. The wait time looks like it will still mostly be dependent on battery supply and production decisions in Korea.
On the bright side, the dealer we chose was confident that it would be "9 months at the very longest" when we signed up in early October, so there are obviously some production increases planned....
Nope, it's not transferable, if it's the same as it was for the Kona. Best option if you have the cash is to pay for the e-Niro and then sell it, either privately or to someone like Just EVs and split the profit.
Unless things have changed, in the U.K., dealers cannot transfer a cancelled order to anyone else. If they do there’s a substantial financial penalty. Kia usually allocate them to others on the waiting list.
The dealer i spoke to when i bought err ordered my Soul said that they do not receive cancelled orders to sell on locally, they go back into the general queue.
An order cancelled after delivery would be very rare Id have thought
I'm due to take my first medium length (60ish miles and then roundabout that area) journey to a holiday park next week. I have Thule wingbars, appropriate clamps for the rails and a Ranger 90 collapsable roof bag I'm planning to take. I'll report back on the hit to efficiency next...
Has anyone else experienced a flat 12v battery in their eNiro?
On Friday last week I came out to a dead car. I removed the 12v and recharged with a smart charger, replaced the battery and made a few short journeys on Saturday, Sunday and Monday.
This morning, dead again.
Are there any known...
