For any of you out there who have ordered a Niro EV through a leasing company after Kia opened up their ordering system to fleet car buyers in early July, you might be interested to know that the first cars are now well on their way to the UK. We ordered ours as soon as we could, through the salary sacrifice scheme operated by my partner's employer through Leaseplan. Our order was approved by Leaseplan around 18th July, and confirmed by the supplying Kia dealer on 29th July. The supplying Kia dealer contacted us last week to confirm that they expect to have the car for us in mid- to late-November. I asked them to provide the screenshot of the shipping details, and they came back with the following. It's great to see that it already shipped on 31st August. I'm not sure which ship it's on. But with an estimated Arrival Date in the UK of 31st October (ie. 8 weeks shipping time), I assume it must be one of the slower Glovis ships which stops off in lots of places on the way. The Niro EV model which we ordered is the 4 spec, in interstellar grey, and including the optional heat pump.
