KIA NIRO Wrap UP and Surprise Clip

KIA NIRO Wrap up discussion with Sandy Munro

In this wrap up video, Sandy and Cory discuss their final thoughts regarding what they have found in the KIA NIRO.

The discussion starts off talking about how Munro received the vehicle which was given by the people at KIA through their press relations people but in a way where we can still be impartial about our observations and therefore uphold our unbiased integrity. This opportunity is afforded to us simply by the fact that our notoriety has increased and we no longer have to rent the cars ourselves.

Sandy starts off by pointing out how the general feel and build of the KIA NIRO has a 90’s feel, but that is not a detraction from it – it’s just not what we expected to find on an electric vehicle.

Sandy however does like several things, like it’s intuitive interface for the infotainment, shifter and IP controls in general. Sandy especially likes the fact that the charging port is located at the front of the car which makes it easy to pull in to a parking spot for charging.

The one major detraction that we have for the KIA NIRO is that it was clearly made to be all things to all people – an EV, ICE, and Hybrid body design. While this makes it versatile from the manufacturing perspective and is a “safe” move from the OEM’s side, it doesn’t allow for a lot of innovation because you have to keep the broad strokes of the design to meet all criteria. That being said, Sandy was still impressed with the AC pump integration with the front motor.

There is some funny dialogue between the Sandy and Cory in the episode, but you should definitely stayed tuned to the end for something really different. We can honestly say that we have never had someone write a song about us, but Mark Frohnmayer CEO of Arcimoto has sent us in a wonderful song that we then put a montage to. We can’t thank you enough and we are blessed to have such great customers and awesome viewers such as yourselves!

We also want to remind our readers that we are looking to hire more electronics, electrical and battery engineers. If you are interested please send your resume to HR@leandesign.com. Visit this link to view job openings: https://munrolive.com/opportunities

2021 Volkswagen ID.4: E6 – Wrap Up with Alex Guberman

In this episode of Munro Live, Sandy turns the tables and interviews Alex Guberman from E for Electric on his thoughts and experiences with the ID.4 which he will be receiving soon.

This video starts off with Alex explaining he just slept on the floor of his newly purchased house in Las Vegas which doesn’t have any furniture yet.

Alex has just recently moved on from driving a Tesla for many years, but admits that owning a luxury Tesla is expensive.  This is the main reason he bought the Volkswagen ID.4 which comes in at about $30,000 USD and he feels that the ID.4 is best for that price range.
