"This is a car that many people are waiting for," said Kia Bil Norge CEO Irene Solstad, who introduced Kia e-Niro, the first electric car in Norway.
She is right. As of today, they have 6250 which paid 7777 kroner to be on the reservation list.
Solstad will also be able to unveil the Norwegian prize, which will be 377,400 kronor for the top-rated version, which will be the 1000th first edition of the car.
E-Niro has 451 liters of baggage larger than golf, and Kia's representative is much larger than Kona, Hyundai's electric car with the same technology. This will also keep the price higher.
However, e-Niro faces the same problems as Kona, and earlier electric cars, the demand and delivery speed of Norway.
"Before the New Year, 100 cars will be offered to dealers as Demobilists, and they will begin shipping customers in the new year," says Solstad.
It will take time.
Importers expect to collect a total of 2,000 cars next year.
"If you're on the list now, you can get a car by 2020," she says.
The 64kWh battery provides a distance of 48.5 miles in a relatively realistic WLTP cycle.
Solstad did not hide the fact that the factory wanted to receive more information, but it proved difficult. At the same time, she said Norway is an important country on the Indian side.
"We are one of the four priority countries with France, Sweden and the Netherlands, and they are also the only countries that have launched models this year.
Currently e-Niro is not supplied with hangar attachments. This will be tested in the winter and may come in a few moments.
