Hey all. New here but been around for a while. Been selling Kia's for 20 years, driving them for 18, and a moderator on the KiaStinger.org and KiaTelluride.org forums.

Should be getting some updated details on everything state-side here in the near future that I'll share once I get it!

Thank you for that MurlinatoR.

Do you think that most dealerships will try and mark up the EV6 FE price $3000 to $5000 over the $58,500 price?
I moved my reservation from a larger dealership to a small home town one to hopefully avoid that. I know the GM pretty good at the mega lot and he said that he usually sticks an additional $3000 on top of vehicles that he "knows" that he can move. Also, I changed my color from Glacier White to Steel Gray Matte.

This smaller lot is the same one that my mother in law picked when doing her reservation for a Glacier White FE EV6. Maybe with two coming to this mom and pop lot, I can actually get the $58,500 price on mine.

Hey MailMan13, happy Tuesday.

So, I honestly believe that most dealers will sell the reservations at MSRP. Many of them will have "packages" that they will add to it like door edge guards or pin stripes.

Also, the MSRP of $58,500 is EXCLUDING destination from Kia. I believe I read that on the website. Just wanted you to be aware. Expect the real MSRP to be around $59,900ish with floor mats and destination included.

Thanks for that info. We figured $60,000.
My wife’s a CPA, so she rounds up anyway😁

I'm hoping you are right about the info. I spent 6 hours glued to my pc just refreshing and putting in the info over and over again haha. But, if they try to mark up the cost I'm prepared to just walk out the door. My reservation is in California.

Looking for full list of options on US first edition model

I reserved my EV6 first edition,
But now I am looking to find a list of all options the car will have. It says on Kia’s website ( it features a unique combination of our best features ) .From what I can figure the price of a first edition is going to be very close to the price of the GT line S all-wheel-drive which is almost fully loaded
which has ventilated seats and a few other goodies . It would be nice to be able to compare the first edition to the GT LINE S.
For the same price I would be willing to wait for a vehicle with more options if that was the case.

what do you think the possibilities are that the EV6 will be added to the Costco auto program by 2022 ? You would obviously have to be buying your car through a dealer that participates in the Program to be eligible .

That would be great for me, as I have a membership.

I could see them doing $2000 maybe later on say next year, but in Atl when I was looking at Chevy Bolt’s (for the fun of it) the Costco approved dealerships would honor the $3000 off certificate, but then they’d jack up the price with some bogus charges/items.

One such item was a LoJack type system that they said they could not remove…$2000 extra I think! I told them that I don’t live in high crime Atlanta, so I didn’t need that system. They wouldn’t budge though.

Dealers like that are why many folks has a dislike for the car shopping process. I think the subscription plan that Volvo and other places are putting together, will succeed and kill off the old dealership model. Some of the tactics they pull these days are so ridiculous, folks end up going someplace else. When I was shopping for the e tron, the first place wanted $10K down, plus bumped the money factor a couple of percentage points, to achieve the payment that Audi listed on their site.

The old car sales model needs an overhaul, with EVs not requiring the kind of service as ICE vehicles, they will have to rethink how to make a profit.

I would have to say next to no chance.

The truth is that all of these "buying" programs (costco, truecar, etc...) are nothing more than paid funnels for customer information. Dealers SET their own pricing with these buying services. They use them to steer a customers information to them and away from their competing dealerships. They set a lower price with the service and then raise the price of the car at the dealership. In the mean time, they got you there and 60% of the time their business as well.

This I have found to be true at some dealers, typically the ones that are trying to rip you off. Mega dealers are out to move a lot of cars and typically you can get a better deals there. Smaller shops tends to apply all the tricks, pin stripes, window tint, vin etching, market adjustment, etc.. These folks want to start price negotiation at the "bump sticker" price with the add ons, even when the vehicle you are viewing doesn't have any of those items applied. I have gotten better deals from other dealers that are not on the Costco list for KIA's and scored even better at other brands, without it.

For the First Editions, I seriously doubt there will be a Costco incentive for them. If the cars are slow selling or they want to improve sales, the manufacturer will offer more incentives and you will find other entities, Costo, etc., offering incentives as well. We will have to wait until the car is in the market to know for sure how this will pan out. Plus, how the chip shortage will affect this as well.
