Not sure how this car is being marketed in the US. In Europe it is known as the e-Niro with no less than Robert D. Niro being used for the initial publicity. They may have wasted their money on the great man as they had no trouble selling these cars. I ordered mine from my dealer in Niort on December 31st. I am a Brit living in France and took delivery on 15th March. I am having a go at V-logging my experiences on YouTube...I am not so good with cameras and all that stuff but readers of Inside EV’s are welcome to take a look, make comments and offer advice. We are very much on a learning curve here, its a lot of fun and last weekend we did a 1,430 km round trip to Lausanne in Switzerland...first experience of rapid charging and destination charging. So far this is a great car, perfect for our needs but my goodness they are expensive to buy. As an owner of a Gen 2 Prius my intention was to look at the Niro Hybrid..a fine car but the demo of the e-Niro had just arrived and it sold itself..despite the fact that even in France I could have bought 150,000 km worth of petrol/gas (see I am bilingual)!!...If I were ordering one now it would be a Gallic shrug of shoulders and ‘sometime next year’..Really sad that they can’t make more of them as yet.
