Status Update: So the original delivery estimate for a "pre-ordered" Ioniq 5 config "April to June" on the day I ordered from Octopus EV but magically became Late august after signing everything! Not a good start. Octopus claimed this was a discrepancy between availability used by the website and that from the dealer. We had been told over the phone that there were "plenty" of Ioniq 5s available on a delivery so April was likely. Not sure if incompetence or intentionally mislead but not off to a great start. In the interim our second car broke down (somewhat spectacularly) and is stuck at the garage with no obvious fix date. Stuck hiring a car from Enterprise to tide us over (expensive!) but not a great deal of choice. They, by coincidence, have giving us a Renault Zoe (Electric). This is quite fun to drive being peppy and has enough range for the daily run about. Unfortunately it's still a french car and some design decisions are weird. Notably the rear door handle is very high and a finger trap - not exactly sensible for the seats most likely to be used by children. Also the front drivers seat appears to only go forwards and backwards with no height adjustment. The default position is okay but what a weird choice. An electric equivalent of a Corsa - small and cheap 'n' cheerful. Octopus reached out today and claim they might have "something" that I can have sooner than August/Sept but not sure if this is an interim car (mentioned by their CEO in a blog post) or just a different model of an Ioniq 5. Half expecting it to be a more expensive trim which might be okay if it is available asap. Watch this space!
