Terms & Exclusions

Terms & Exclusions - 48-hour Electric Vehicle Test Drive Campaign


In these Terms and Conditions, when we refer to "Kia” or "our", we mean Kia Motors (UK) Limited trading as Kia Ireland (Irish company number 905006) with registered office address at Unit A8, Calmount Park, Calmount Road Dublin 12, Ireland; and when we refer to “the driver”, "you" or "your" we mean you, the person participating in a test drive of a Kia demonstration electronic vehicle (the “Test Drive”). Subject to vehicle availability, the demonstration vehicle will be the Kia EV6 (a “Demonstration Vehicle”). 


These Terms and Conditions, along with the below Courtesy Car Agreement, are basis on which you are permitted to undertake the Test Drive of the Demonstration Vehicle.


1.     Kia does not make any representations regarding the Demonstration Vehicle or the specific functions or specifications of the Demonstration Vehicle. The Demonstration Vehicle is provided to the driver for the purpose of the Test Drive on an “as is” and as available basis.


2.     The Kia EV6 can travel up to 528km per full charge, based on the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP). The driver agrees and acknowledges that actual range may vary due to driving style, road condition, air conditioning and other factors outside Kia’s control.


3.     If you are planning on driving beyond the range of the Demonstration Vehicle during your Test Drive, it is important to plan a charging solution to enable you to do this. Please be advised that each Demonstration Vehicle comes equipped with a "Kia Charge" public charging card, powered by EasyGo. This card will work at ESB, EasyGo and Ionity charging stations across the Island of Ireland. Kia Ireland do not accept any costs incurred by the user for charging the vehicle with alternative suppliers from the ones listed above. The card provided is already preconfigured. You do not need to sign up for any charging account, in order to charge the vehicle at ESB, EasyGo, or Ionity charging stations. Kia Ireland do not accept any liability for any costs incurred should you register for a charging account directly with any provider.


a)    Home charging cables: the Demonstration Vehicle will come equipped with two home charging cables; you must not use any other charging cables for home charging. The Demonstration Vehicle will come with;

 i.    An AC Type 2 cable which can be connected to home charge point

ii.    A portable charger ‘Granny Cable’ for a domestic three pin connection


b)    If it is your intention to charge this Demonstration Vehicle during the Test Drive using a domestic socket, and the electrical wiring has not been inspected recently, it is recommended that the wiring and socket are inspected by a qualified technician before charging. A ring main circuit, usually fitted within a house, may become overloaded from other electrical devices which are operating at the same time as the Demonstration Vehicle is charging. Therefore, Kia recommends that where a Demonstration Vehicle is charged domestically using a 3-pin domestic socket, this should be done on a dedicated circuit, installed and tested by a fully qualified electrician.


c)     Extension leads must not be used when charging as most extension leads cannot carry the required current and may become hot.


d)    Public charge cables: There are different types of public charge points:

i.    Standard / slow charge points are generally located on-street, in car parks, at hotels, and at other locations. Charging speeds range from 3.7kW to 24kW. These charge points are generally untethered meaning that you will need to use your type 2 charging cable to commence charging.

ii.    Fast / high power charge points are generally located in service stations and motorway services. Charging speeds range from 50kW to 350kW and these charge points use tethered cables connected to the charging point so no additional cable is required for fast charging.


e)    Do not touch the metal contact points of the charging port, charge connector or electrical plug.


4.     The relevant Kia dealership may prevent participants from taking part in a Test Drive if they believe that the participant is not fit to drive. The relevant Kia dealership may also decline or withdraw/terminate the Test Drive and its use at any time without prior notice to the driver. For example, this may occur in the event of dangerous driving or a failure to meet the Driver Eligibility Criteria comes to light.


5.     These Terms and Conditions and any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with these Terms and Conditions shall be governed by or construed in accordance with Irish law and subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Irish courts.
