April 19 ordered spoke to dealership who advised me the car was being delivered 15 may. Home delivery as show rooms are closed.That date is delivery to dealership so checks to be made .Will update when i receive it.Has anyone heard anything since dealers are starting to open now? Loads of rumours of 1000+ stock sitting in the docks with a few ships still to come.
Ordered Nov 19 and still have no idea of delivery.
One way to achieve this would be to get them to deliver to your home and then leave it for at least 3 days. I believe that the virus cannot last longer than that even on hard metal surfaces.Any idea how they plan to ensure it is virus-free? I'm 70 so need to be a bit careful.
Actually, that, also, is not a bad idea. If the sun is out for any length of time the metal part of the car (the part that will have any virus lingering the longest) can get too hot to touch. It still leaves the interior, though, which is where (apart from door handles) any virus will most likely be left; but that could all be wiped down. The biggest problem, though, is finding a part of the country where it is going to be sunny enough to do the job - you might have to wait a lot longer than 3 days for that!According to this research 20 minutes at 55ºC or 5 minutes at 65ºC will do a pretty good job (nearly completely) killing the virus. Longer is better and hotter is far better. I don't know what the summer sun and/or the Niro's heater on recirculate can achieve but perhaps worth a test by someone with a Niro and a garden thermometer who's not in the increased risk category? Sadly I remain Niroless or I'd give it a whirl!
I cancelled both the e-Soul and the Niro. Went for a Kona instead. Local dealer found one, delivered it and did a contactless handover within a week. So I know there are two electric Kias that arrived in Immingham over a month ago looking for a new owner.There may be a few cancellations, I still debating, I’m nearly 70 so classed as vulnerable.
I won’t be able to go anywhere, the lack of spare wheel is a concern, I want memory seats and would prefer the car in red. Had to order Silky Silver.
So about 9 months from order then?I ordered in September and I've been in advised my car will be ready for delivery mid-June.
Yes, originally, before lockdown, I was told it would be May-June(ish) so not too bad considering. I'm currently in the the process of arranging a charger to be installed.So about 9 months from order then?
I have a near neighbour who ordered one about 10.5 months ago and took delivery yesterday. Though the lockdown needs to be factored into that.
