Kona 64kWh

Postby Adrian » Mon Nov 12, 2018 9:31 pm

So - thinking of trading the Leaf in for a 64kWH Kona but....

Does not seem like any UK Hyundai dealers are supplying this model yet. The Hyundai web site says you can order but with a 42 week wait. Hyundai UK says there are no cars to test drive in the UK.

Definitely a case of demand outstripping supply. With all the good press its been getting you had to be quick off the mark to get it.

I've been lucky and managed to get mine ordered to arrive early 2019.

If I can just get the energy saving trust loan application sorted out I will be laughing. :lol:

Same here: Ordered Sept 29th for 19th March 2019 delivery, by a EST loan (hopefully)
Really glad we got the order in before the price went up by £2500, and the Government grant went down by £1,000.
Not a replacement for the Leaf, but for our old 2010 Note (which is a trade in).
We'll keep the 2016 Leaf Tekna when the PCP expires, far too precious to dispose of, and a brilliant 2nd car.

I would have liked to have kept my leaf. But the EST required that you didn't already own an EV to qualify for the government interest free loan. Wasn't sure if transferring it to my wife would have been splitting hairs and they might have called foul and rejected my application. Besides, her quashqai is only two years old with 15k on it where the leaf was four and a half years old. I think she may have been huffed if I asked her to get rid of her nice new car, even if it did save her money. Loan is approved now so its finger drumming time and learning how to get by with one car. Forgot just how bad public transport is in Aberdeen.

I was really lucky too, one of the guys at work bought a new house which had a mennekes charger in the garage. He took it out and I Gave him £100 for it . So My Type 1 (Leaf) to Mennekes adapter isn't really needed except when I visit my folks.

So much for campaigning for all new houses to be fitted with EV charging as a way to encourage uptake.....

My wife runs the 2010 Note with 100k on the clock, so she is the buyer, on the face of it. Hence she is eligible for the loan, I would not be.

Actually, technically, does having a leased Leaf count as owning a Leaf, vis a vis the EST loan, I wonder?
