The laws of demand and supply have had an unusual effect on the prices of the e-Niro. Because there’s a waiting list and drivers are anxious to get one, they will pay extra to jump the queue. So, here is a Kia SUV which actually increases in value once it hits the used market. We found a couple of cheeky dealers who were offering up their demo cars and ‘cancelled orders’ for more than the list price, despite one having more than 11,000 miles on the clock. A delivery mileage car was advertised at £5,000 above the list price – crazy money which would buy you a Tesla Model 3!
This situation won’t last forever though. Supply of the e-Niro will soon loosen up and rivals will appear which make it seem less special. When that happens, the prices will return to normal and used e-Niros will start to offer better value.
