      BMW i4 35 sport on order myself, had to cancel, found it scrapped underside when going down our slopping drive when borrowing one!

      Test drove a few more EV’s before ordering the KIA EV6, was only 2 wks delivery end of Jan at the time. Did phone Motobility to cancel previous order, explained why and was done straight away.

        Converted to our 1st EV car, love the cheap running costs. Bonus is that KIA has raised the AP now to £7995 from £4995 that we paid, due to retail demand probably.

          Our Kia EV6 AWD’s AP has gone up to £7999 from £4999! Would be out of our reach now.

              My dealer used Diamond Brite nano ceramic finish to our car before collection, twisted his arm to do it before placing order. Would recommend it.

                      I’m obtaining around 285 miles on a 91% charge at the moment.  Am not concerned about the EV6’s range as a charge last over a week driving it normally. Just enjoy the car.

                        The charger & standard instalation is provided by Motability free. (subject to survey) We got our 1st EV car end of January, wouldn’t go back to anything else.

                          We eat whole foods, but in small amounts. Very little processed. Butter, Full fat Milk, Cheese etc. Cook from scratch, made Lemon Chicken with Asparagus, fine beans, Tasty Salad, few boiled potatoes last night – Lovely

                          Soft boiled egg with solders for breakfast. Slowly losing weight, lost 21lbs in last year. No diet, tasty food, small portions works for us.

                            It is sad to read of the stress these eratic build times are. Wish the manufactures would stick to build dates and the customer dealers would look after the customers better.

                            I got my EV6 in 2 weeks from placing order, well worth the slightly higher AP for a class leading car, no stress to mar our experience.

                              The EV6 AP is higher, but if it is affordable to you I would not change it for anything else. After 3 mths the car still rates as the best car for us. Quality is outstanding, range 260 miles plus now. Worth a test drive for sure.

                                Took delivery of our Pearl White Kia EV6 AWD end of January. Dealer applied Diamond Brite inside and out to swing the deal FOC. Would recommend but would not pay extra for it. Does make a difference, rain peels off.

                                    Being able to charge at home with an EV that is long range is so economical on running costs. We are enjoying much more trips out enjoying the car, being silent is so relaxing. For us Charging Stations will only be used a couple of times a year.

                                      Been driving my 1st EV (Kia EV6 GT Line AWD) and have been impressed with its range of 260 cold weather to now 280+ miles at the moment. Normal driving and not been too bothered about it as Charge up overnight once a week. Very pleased with the quality of this car.

                                        My EV6 AWD has 5 settings from fully off, 1, 2, 3 and full re gen  for one pedal driving. Use that around town and use 2 or 3 when on open roads depending on traffic. Controls are paddles so it is easy to switch on the move. I switch off lane assist, cannot trust it not to drive the car onto the verge/pavement. Fine on Motorways though.

                                          It can be done, it is only a quick adjustment of re submiting for Mobility to update. Doesn’t effect the allocated build slot. Interestingly some dealers are more accomodating than others.

                                            Re Driving style, personally drive just the same as in my previous BMW X1 X Drive. As quickly as road condition and speed limits allow. Found the adjustments needed was to take account of the instant power response and be much lighter on the throttle! Battery efficiency is even better when added the regen figures to it. Have been getting around 4.4kwh showing in the cars software EV screen. My EV6 appears to have greater returns than the Ioniq 5 for some reason. Not come near to its road holding limits as yet.

                                              Have a Kia EV6 GT Line in Pearl White, lovely car. Would have had the S model in a heartbeat but can’t see it coming onto the scheme, so E from me.

                                              Doubts I had on door handles find them easy to use. Rear windows slippery angle keeps clean, no need for wiper. Ceramic paint finish recommend, rain peels off it. (Extra thrown in to get my business) Performance, range, comfort, loaded with everything you need, even drives itself, BUT prefer to be in control. Kia have limited production on these, to comply with targets I have read. Produce same numbers as Ferrari worldwide, hope it remains on the scheme.

                                                We switched onto the Octopus Intelligent Go tariff from the 12mth fixed 9 weeks ago. Last overnight charge costs – 131 miles (37.2kwh) was £2.79.

                                                Not had to increase our DD yet and have covered over 1000 miles. Savings on running the house on cheap rate (2 fridge freezers, + stand by appliances) have helped costs. Integrates well with the Ohme app so plug in and approve on phone set for cheap rates. Our 1st EV happy with how things are going.

                                                  Had a Nextbase 312GW installed by Halfords fitted to my last car. They re installed and provided a plug in to fuse box fixing kit into the Kia EV6 for £50. Would recommend Nextbase as the ones to buy from Halfords. Better value than dealer ones.

                                                    The Ioniq 5 is one of the stand out cars on the scheme. Roomy, comfortable, loaded with tech. Spaceship styling makes it stand out, if you like it. Very good range. Low AP makes it affordable to many.

                                                    The rear window gets dirty quicker due to it’s less aero angle, nice to see they are putting a rear wiper on it on future factory orders.

                                                      My Ohme A/C links to the Octopus Intelligent Go so it sets automatically to the cheap night time tariff. Just need to confirm on iphone when plugging in. Didn’t find it too difficult setting up when I got my car.
