No special college, military, or partner discount. Only discount outside of haggling with dealer was $2000 bonus cash Kia offered last month and appears to be offering this month.


No need to list the taxes, dealer fees, title, plates etc. as every state is different.
^dealer fees are a part of the price, excluding accessory options. They all try to add junk fees in every state.

The thread is useful but the info incomplete as it doesn’t include finance rates.
Seeing Kia finance rebates is good, but don’t forget interest.
The price “paid” should include all payments until you own the vehicle outright.
Otherwise what you have is the price “financed”.
A poor finance deal can largely cancel hard fought discounts. It’s a psychological trick to make you think you got a great deal because you think you got so much money off the car, but you didn’t necessarily. Don’t fall into that trap.
A smaller discount but a cash purchase may be cheaper overall. (Assuming you can afford to pay it all up front of course which not many can).
The same goes for subtracting your trade in price to come up with what you “paid”. Although it may seem you handed over less cash because you had a trade in you didn’t really u less they gave you more than your used car would have cost you to buy. Assets are currency.

Good to see some big discounts on here,
I’d just love to know what total money the vehicle actually cost when all finance payments have been made as that’s the real price paid. Anything else is just the dealer playing psych tricks with numbers.

Just bought a EX with designer package. Fought pretty hard, but landed at $25k before TTL, @ 0% for 72 months in NYC. I feel like I got ripped a little and should have fought harder. But with all the cash incentives, at 3% you land at the same price. And I did not want to part with full cash upfront as that is better spent on investments or similar.

We bought our 2020 Kia Soul EV Limited in June of 2019. Back then, the British Columbia Provincial government had a $5000 CAD rebate if you bought an EV. It was funded via carbon taxes.

The Canadian Federal Government then announced a similar national program with a $5000 CAD rebate - So it totalled $10,000 CAD in rebates.

Once the Federal Government announced their rebate the British Columbia government slashed their rebate from $5000 CAD to $2500 CAD - So today the max rebate is $7500 CAD.

However, when we bought our car in June of 2019 both rebates were still in place, so we slid under the wire with $10,000 CAD in rebates.

There are some terms - For example, the rebate doesn't apply to "luxury" EVs like the Model X.

The rebates go directly to the dealer.

There are some rebates if you buy used, but I'm not as familiar with those. There is also a program in British Columbia called "Scrap-It" where you get some rebates for an EV when you trade in an ICE car, but it's a confusing program that has few credits available, so I don't know a lot about it. We didn't take advantage of it.

I guess the way to look at it is even $24k is cheap for a brand new car and it should be just as reliable, or more so, than cars costing twice as much.
