nice one Hyundai

I got this from my dealer after responding to one of their "special events" as they were offering good discounts you could bank for a few months


Quote:
Good morning Mr *****,

The release date is in October, however only a few selected Hyundai dealerships will see the Ioniq this year, unfortunately we are not the selected dealership as the charge points and training throughout the dealership will be needed.

We have been told the dealerships that are not selected will see them quarter 2 next year which will be April/May time.

I can keep you in my diary to give you a call when I get any more news.

Your thoughts would be much appreciated.

Kind regards
what a genius move Hyundai, spend a year getting everyone interested in a nice new car, then only release it to about 10% of your dealers and make the rest wait over 6 months


cracking move that one, how to annoy your customers and make them look at the competition


due to my change of job I am now doing 30,000+ miles a year, in march my car will be 2 years old and have about 40,000 miles, with my mileage and PCP I think march will be the best time to change as a balance between partex figure (which will rapidly go south due to the mileage I am doing) and the slower decreasing settlement figure for the PCP


if I have not changed by march I will likely keep my current i20 and run it until it is unreliable (my old skoda Octavia I kept 7 years until it had 235,000 miles on it)


I suspect I will not be the only customer annoyed by this


my response is below
Quote:
This is very disappointing, i was hoping to change my car before the changes in VED next April, if i have not changed it by then i will likely keep it long term rather than change it.

This is so short sighted of Hyundai to restrict access to only 19 dealerships, that is another 6 months Toyota etc will have to establish themselves and make it harder for the Ioniq to enter the market

I do not wish to change Hyundai dealership so likely Hyundai will lose me as a customer, time to look at the competition

regards

I have had some information regarding this issue of my dealer not being able to sell the Ioniq until Q2 2017


I have not been able to confirm the information yet as it was not via an official channel, but what I have been told is plausible


Quote:
they confirm the selective representation strategy for the IONIQ.

  • It applies only to the EV
  • It applies only until the PHEV is launched (Q2 2017)
  • All dealers will sell IONIQ Hybrid from launch
  • All dealers will be fully trained to deal with all variants from the outset.

so the only version affected by this limited number of dealers able to initially supply would seem to be the full EV, which would be wanted by a limited number of customers as currently all EV's as low volume from any manufacturer


this would appear to be a sensible decision


I will talk to my dealer in person on Friday (when my car in in for warranty work) to try and confirm the information above and report back

I have had an email back from my dealer today, Confirming the information about the limited number of dealers only relates to he EV version of the Ioniq


Quote:
Good morning *******


I have been going through the information on our Hyundai system and you are correct the Hybrid will be available to order this year,

I cannot confirm when we are getting one in to drive, they will show on our ordering system in September so hopefully we will have more information then.


As soon as I get any more information I will contact you first thing.

Kind regards


so I continue to wait again, 8 weeks can be so long

But don't you want to wait until Hyundai smooths out all of the bugs? Maybe wait at least a year or two?

my time line is Q1 2017 to change my existing i20, as it is currently only 18 months old and still in negative equity on the finance


from what I have calculated should be at or close to break even jan / feb 2017 depending on the part ex deal I can get


that should give Hyundai nearly 6 months to sort out any bugs and start to get real world feed back from people who have bought the early models to see what people think once they are living with the Ioniq


i do have some concerns about the design, but until i sit in it and take it for a test drive i can't say if i can get comfortable as i drive 500+ miles a week with 400+ of that concentrated in 2 days


it will all come down to money and if the economy is anywhere near the claimed levels, as i currently can get mid / high 50's MPG out of my 2015 i20 1.2 SE which is the "combined" mpg, bearing in mind the Ioniq urban, combined and extra urban are all in the 80+ mpg range for the Ioniq


i plan to do a fair 25-30 mile test drive with a mix of town, A roads and motorway, i will drive the route with my i20 then immediately do the same route with the Ioniq which should give a fair comparison of the to cars
