Delays for new vehicle arrivals

There is currently a worldwide shortage of the key electronic components required in many parts of a new vehicle. Without these components (called “semi-conductors”) the assembly of a new vehicle can be delayed, or in some cases can be impossible. Kia NZ is working closely with Kia Corporation to optimise NZ Kia production however delays are currently being experienced for NZ Kia customers.

Depending on the model and specification, delays can range from six weeks to six months plus. Your Kia dealer can advise you of the expected lead time for your specific vehicle. Kia NZ would also like to remind all new vehicle buyers (regardless of brand) that from the 1st April 2022 a rebate or a fee may apply to your new vehicle purchase - under the NZ Govt Clean Car standard legislation. If you would like to contact us please click here. We would like to thank all of our customers for their support and patience during this time.
