e-Niro due in just over a week!

Post by jimbojones » Sat Apr 06, 2019 11:32 am

Hi everyone,

I should have my e-Niro shortly to replace my BMW i3, so I'm already versed in running an EV. I've test driven it and it's a great car.

I've already learnt a lot about the Niro from this forum. Will look forward to learning more and helping where I can!

Well done Jimbo,
How did you mange that?
When did you order it?
Over a years wait now.

I put a deposit down in December - I was the first at the dealer. Car was finally handed over on Saturday. It's a fantastic car!

You will love it. Got mine on 15th and loving it. A nice feature is the regen. braking which I always set at level 3. Hardly use the footbrake at all but beware! When you are at 100% charge there is no regen braking and thus it doesn't slow you down at all. Maybe all evs are like this but it certainly caught me out!

Are you considering ceramic coating and or wrapping at least the front valances, bonnet, wings and mirrors to ease cleaning and reduce stone damage. Some reviews say certain colours of paint are soft and mark easily like the stupid polished black plastic inside the car areas just where hand bags and rings catch!

18 month wait now ! I had test drive yesterday and it’s absolutely amazing, however why do we have the poor spec vehicle here in the uk ? No led headlights, no dual zone climate control and no ventilated seats ? If I'm correct , this is the first edition and therefore should have all the bells and whistles , congratulations on your purchase and delivery and enjoy the sport mode oh my word !!
