MY18 build date

Post by Splang » Sat Aug 12, 2017 9:43 pm

Hi folks
Anyone know when this is please? I have ordered a 2 with adap and it was built 2 weeks ago. I think the only difference between my17 and 18 is the battery in the back moves to below the rear seat and is a lithium?
Many thanks
S

Do you mean the 12v battery? The EV battery is already under the rear seat (in the non plug-in Niro) and is a lithium polymer battery.

I wonder if the relocation is only for the U.S. market?

I think this will be across the globe , strange they are replacing the 12v battery so soon , perhaps they know something we don't and not telling us . I suspect they are doing it because of weight , and more room in the boot , and no doubt there will be a lot more changes in the future . And i wouldn't be surprised they will make the Lithium battery bigger too.
