UK EV6 Orders in progress

35433 Views 182 Replies 54 Participants Last post by  GMC92
For UK only members (sorry!) - Has anyone seen any delays from the quoted 30 weeks from KIA on deliveries in the UK?
I ordered my EV6 GT Line S in Glacier White with additional Heat Pump and Puddle Lamps on 03 March 2022 with the delivery quoted as last week of September or Early October 2022 from KIA in Southampton.
I was in the dealership this week and they just said there no updates on progress!
Thank you and happy driving

Every day that passes is just another day of frustration with Kia 馃挬 and their car production lottery.
I'm assuming that the "early" delivery mentioned in one of the previous posts was due to colour and I keep hoping that the blue team will receive some positive news before long.

Heard just before Xmas that my car had a VIN - turned out it had already been built by the time I was given that info.
Have now confirmed that it is on a ship heading my way.

Well, this gets more of a farce everyday. Yacht Blue, GTLS, RWD, ordered October 鈥21 with original quote of April 鈥22, moving out to Dec 鈥22, then end of December told March 鈥23, latest information is end of May 鈥23. I really couldn鈥檛 care less now 馃檮
Do you have an HP too? Otherwise your order is the same as mine and my car was built in Dec and is on a ship slowly making its way to me.
Long time lurker here! Just registered to post my order of GTLS yacht blue AWD ordered in Jan 22 is built and due to be ready for collection on 6th march.
There are going to be a few happy team Blue members in Feb & Mar. :)
My yacht blue GT Ls AWD ordered 11 Feb 22 is apparently built and due in uk early March.
Congrats to you.
Might be on the same ship as mine (blue team all together) which departed Pyeongtaek 24th Dec and is taking the very long way around and being passed by 3 or 4 ships on its way. No, I'm not annoyed at all about the 9 to 10 week "cruise" to the UK. :(
This is where ordering the EXACT same spec in October 2021 and still not having the car and with no firm date other than May starts to get a bit of a piss take.
Thats ridiculous and by far the longest wait of any EV6 ordered in the UK on forums. GTL look to be going on a 9 month lead time. I'd be asking serious questions, not that any1 can give useful answers, but asking questions nonetheless !
Totally agree. At the very least I would be sitting at the dealer's desk asking to see the orders list to confirm that my order had been submitted to Kia 馃挬 and acknowledged by them.
I have finally got a chassis number and estimation of delivery early June. I was getting to the point of cancelling after ordering the thing in October 2021!

Yacht Blue GTL-S, no HP, RWD
Oof! I鈥檓 glad you have your VIN now, but it doesn鈥檛 bode too well for me as my order for the exact same colour/spec was put in 11 months after yours. Guess I might still have a very long wait鈥
Oof indeed. Feeling guilty ( :rolleyes: ) that, somehow, my December 2021 order was met before Beagle's October 2021 order. Kia :poop: certainly know how to win friends.
