Beautiful car - too bad the energy consumption is just unacceptable. I've seen several people on forums claim they decided against it for that very reason.
Energy consumption seems to be a bit of a question. It seems Jaguar have released a software update that appears to have increased the range quite significantly (talking 300 miles in for some post update testing).

That means all the range estimates from all the older reviews (using the pre update/pre production models) may well be rather conservative range wise.

So $69k for the base model 200 mile version and $90-100k for the 400 mile version.

Extremely tempting if I could justify $100k on a car. They’re doing the Tesla thing of announcing two years prior to launch however, with the $1,000 refundable deposit.

For what it is it’s relatively cheap, for what it competes against (the TDR Pro and the Ranger) it’s a big uplift in cost.

Hopefully the big guys release some things like this in the future at a more reasonable price.
That thing looks awesome!

How hard is it to set that up?
Fairly easy, no soldering required. They say 15 minutes, if you've done anything similar before.

Does anyone have updates on Niro EV availability in Canada?
Should be offered to order next mth and pick up late spring if things havent changed.

Unfortunately the long range Nissan Leaf has been pushed back due to their CEO Carlos Ghosn being taken to the slammer.

Did anyone else see this posted by Brantford Kia?



He says that they are already taking pre-orders on the Niro EV. Is it really possible?

I will, but I'm in AB, so not sure how much would that help. I was curious if anyone else more local to that dealer has found out more.
