Does anyone here have any inside info on what kind of PCP deals Kia is likely to offer on the Soul EV?

I believe it's on the 4.9% deal. The dealer I spoke to wasn't sure on the GFV yet, but interestingly, there is a £1300 discount on them already!

I don't recall the exact numbers, but it was someone like £3200 down and around £475 per month for 12000 miles per annum.

I was passing Beadles Kia Coulsdon after an e-Tron test drive next door, and as it was parked outside on impulse I went to take a look at the Soul. I was greeted by their very congenial and helpful EV specialist Mark McKaig who took me through the car in great detail and, because he had an appointment with another customer, kindly let me take an unaccompanied test drive.

It's too bad that I really dislike the design of the car both inside and outside, as it has so much going for it otherwise. Amongst the previously inexperienced delights I encountered were its heated seats and steering wheel!

The most interesting thing I learned, however, was an explanation for the outlandish PCP rates on launch. Apparently whoever did the calculations forgot to take the government plug-in grant out of the reckoning! Now I gather they're down to between about £299 and £450 pcm depending upon deposit.

If you're in the area I recommend you check out Beadles - I'm sure Mark will make you feel very welcome.

We've got those goodies on our LEAF Tekna. Heated back seat too.

i3 has optional heated seats but it is one of the very few BMWs that doesn't have an optional heated steering wheel. One of the reasons we got the Leaf instead of the i3.

Does keeping the temperature lower make a real difference to the range in a Gen 2 Leaf?
