- Goes to dealership to get oil changed on Optima PHEV
- Gets email on the way there from Kia reminding of upcoming lease end on said Optima PHEV, and to consider end of lease options
- Wanders over to sales lot to look at what might possibly make me not just buy the Optima at the end of the lease
- Drives off the lot in this instead:
My wife and I had talked about going fully electric for a while, since we really loved how the Optima drove on battery, and the whole “not buying gas” thing. I figured the only thing that would make me not buy out the Optima at lease-end would be a Niro EV, but it would also have to be a really good bargain.
Well, my local dealer had 3 leftover 2019 EX Premiums (fully loaded) left in stock, partially thanks to COVID shutting down dealerships for several months. And the bargain they had on it, well… Irresistible.
