I know the 1500 first edition reservations were quickly taken. However, is there a way to be put in a waiting list or begin my reservation for a US delivery? The link I saw was not through KIA and I’m reluctant to give my credit card info to some third party. Anyone have a legitimate link to get on a list. I want to purchase an EV6 in the US as soon as practical. Thanks. Yup

The reservations are just that and does't guarantee it will be sold to the person that reserved it. One could get lucky and find one that was refused by the person that reserved it and is available for sale. Just have to talk to dealers to find our who has some coming in and ask them to alert you if someone declines on purchasing the car reserved.

hey there 777Darren, happy Thursday and welcome to the group!

I am a 20 year Kia sales consultant and would love to help you get an order placed for your EV6 when you're ready.

I was at my local KIA dealer today as my wife wanted to see the Sportage. I asked the dealer if he had any EV6´s coming in. Said he had one that was supposed to come in but the customer didn’t want it anymore. So I said I’ll take it. Unfortunately it doesn’t work this way I was told. Apparently that car now goes to the next person in the queue for Canada. I was very surprised to hear that.

In the US, the FE reservation was really just directing an FE car to your chosen dealership and then having first chance to strike a deal with that dealership for that car. It's the dealership's though to sell.

In Canada though they took purchase deposits and - to curtail any bad behaviour by dealerships - they're treating all orders as a queue, and vehicles can only be sold and registered to the name on the queue. Kia Canada has also been doing this same thing with non-EV6 cars in high demand, preventing dealers from ordering one for "Joe Canuck" and then having a car to demo or sell off the lot. They actually charge dealers for re-shipping if a customer doesn't buy a vehicle custom ordered through the dealership. Hyundai Canada is doing something similar with the Ioniq 5 but are starting to be a bit more flexible with re-allocations.

FYI there's a Canada sub-forum you might be interested in.
