What are the order lead times on these down there?Canceled my ID.4 reservation just now, informed by my drive today. I'd rather have an Ioniq 5. Less busy interior, quieter, and my gripe about the speedometer layout would be obviated by the HUD on the Premium.
The Ioniq 5 is a bit more expensive than the ID.4 when in the nice, glass-roof Premium trim. This, in turn, shall inspire the creation of… A Spreadsheet. In this I shall map out options at and within financial spitting distance of the $55k Ioniq 5 AWD Premium.
Things I must have:
- EV, or at least a PHEV with 30+ miles of range
- at least equivalent interior width to the Ioniq 5
- heated seats and wheel
- glass roof
- 2" hitch
- not associated with Elon Musk
- good front headroom
- plausibly available this year
Things I would like:
- unencumbered knee room
- ventilated seats
- good rear headroom
- 3rd row
I got laughed out of the local Kia dealership when I asked about the Niro.
Toyota next door was similar, with no new cars on the lot. 9-12 month wait for anything hybrid. I think I'm leaning more and more towards that silly Corolla Cross hybrid.
Also sucks about Musk and Tesla. Even if Tesla was a great company, it's disappointing that they have that dark cloud hanging above the top of it.
