I’ve ordered a phev in May, which was the nil cost basic colour. Was offererd a stock white at an extra £500 which I refused. Was told it would be 12 - 14 weeks delivery. Reading other comments 12 weeks seems to be the norm.

It takes around six weeks just to get cars from Korea to Europe by sea.

I ordered my Niro 4 delivered in 7 days, but I had to take the 18inch alloy version, otherwise 3 month wait.
Really enjoying this car

Ordered my Niro 4, with 16" wheels, back in Feb. After some four months, picked it up last week.

Car feels solid, and everything works as advertised. Enjoying driving my first hybrid car. Its very quiet when running on battery, and the mpg readouts on the display always bring me a smile.

The first drive from dealership to home, showed 67 mpg, and that was a 12 mile trip.

After 200 miles of mostly in-town driving, as per the car, its averaging 55 mpg. If that continues, the car should do 540+ miles per tank.

What's everyone else getting?

I drive 10 miles a day, mostly city traffic, getting 53.4 mpg, not bad at all.

Not sure how relevant mpg discussion is under the OP's original post but .... Just completed an approx 2000 mile round trip from UK to Denmark, mostly motorway, and observed the following:
cruising at 70mph the consumption (indicated) was mid 50's mpg.
Cruising at 65mph the consumption improved to low to mid 60's mpg. At one stage I cruised at 60mph for about 4 hours after a fill up - I was pleased with an indicated mid to high 70's mpg. At one point it was showing over 80mpg.

I realise these are only indicated figures but they appear to be approx +2mpg of actual consumption.

In day to day driving at home I'm getting mid 60's mpg. Last winter it was averaging mid 50's mpg. I'm not unhappy with these figures.

Notes: not sure that cruise control gives the best consumption because it always seems to rev the engine into the power band to maintain selected speed.
Tyre pressures set at 38psi on Michelin energysavers (instead of 36psi).
