Re: E-Niro test drive

Well, knowing the old duffer that I am and being the first time in a pure EV, I had a Mitsu PHEV a few years ago, I probably mis-read the dashboard. I was trying to look where I was going most of the time and only glanced at the figures.
If so.....Mea Culpa for confusing the situation! :oops:

E-Niro test drive

This is a copy of an email (because I feel lazy! :lol: ) that I wrote to my motorhead friends. Therefore some of the information...

Re: KIA UK E-mailed me a Niro brochure !

My Kodiaq, 17 reg, and my Karoq, 68 reg both have LED headlights as do many other modern cars. So why should Kia have a problem? LED headlights are available in other markets on the E Niro so why does the U.K get the hind t*t? I can't help thinking Kia have made a 'blooper' using headlights from the...
