Yup it’s a killer now for the 64kWh Eniros. I’m so glad I got my '4' 6 months ago, for ~£35K. With the '4+' version being already more expensive and now coupled with the zero subsidy, I don’t think I would have bought it now. I would imagine Eniro 64kWh sales in the UK will drop like a proverbial brick now.
That depends. If the Kia EV6 ends up being £40k+ for the basic model then they won't have any incentive to shift e-Niros because they will effectively continue for a bit as a cheaper option. I would hope that the EV6 would be the in the same price range as the e-Niros or cheaper, which means you're right they'll need to shift e-Niros in the transition. However, despite all the promises that doesn't seem to be the direction EV pricing is going right now.If this impacts sales, I'm hoping that they'll drop the price by £2.1k to get an effective drop of £5.1k
They're going to want to get rid of these once the Ioniq 5/Kia EV6 are out
Don’t worry, they’re still coming. 0% BIK, a sensible range, improved lead times and good lease rates make these very attractive company cars. They’ll sell all they can (or, want to) make.Just checked with my leasing company what the cost would be for a e-Niro 4+ post PiCG change.
On a 4 year lease (3+47) it is now £50pm more expensive than mine was 2 months ago.
So they're heaping almost the whole lot onto the lease.
I thought that a possible increase in second hand values might have softened this a bit more.
Feel a bit bad for new customers.
I think you're good actually as I think it'll help keep prices up because of the bigger gap to new.Spare a thought for those of us who buy their own cars! Fortunately, took delivery of my 4+ three weeks ago. But this is going to hit second hand/trade in prices. Just have to keep it for the whole 7 years, then 😲 Still, at my age, that 7 year warranty could mean it's the last car I buy.
Having said that, I can't see the sense in taking away the grant when the government is supposedly trying to push everyone towards electric vehicles.🤔
Perhaps that's why I'm not in politics.
Almost £32k and still has things like Adaptive cruise. Isn't this offering a decent EV at even lower prices than before the grant changes?Hyundai, Nissan, BMW, Peugeot, Kia, Vauxhall, MG, Tesla and Citroen have all adjusted their electric-car pricing to ensure models remain eligible for plug-in grantwww.drivingelectric.com
