So let us in on your negotiation techniques! I would think it would be difficult on a popular new vehicle.
I would love to say I am a master negotiator but I usually just ask for corporate pricing which is typically invoice +2%. If you go to a site like carcostcanada you can "free" invoice data( they are paid by making a referral to a dealer, so expect a sales call). For example invoice for AWD with ultimate package is $57390 +1825(freight) + options, $100 ac tax, tire tax, and whatever other fees that are required in your province. Nonetheless I am expecting to roughly get at least a $1500 off msrp without too much debate, it helps if you already have a previous business relationship with the dealer. Anyways I have bought several cars this way, even in demand popular vehicles. Occasionally a dealer does not want to play but fortunately there are more Hyundai dealers in my town than Starbucks so its not too hard to find a hungrier one.

That's the same approach I have used for multiple purchases over the last 15 years or so. I think the difference this time, however, is that the pre-order seems to be tied to a particular (local) dealer reducing the opportunity to solicit bids from, say, three dealers near me in Ottawa, and a high volume dealer in Toronto.

Yes basically you are SOL as you will have to quickly run out checking other dealers which you do not have a pre order with. So at the end of the day having a pre order and some type of past history with the dealership will assist. I learnt that the dealer I have my pre order with is part of a group and the local Acura dealer lists the same Sales Manager for both locations after I checked carcostcanada. Having purchased 3 past vehicles at Acura I am going to ask for a discount on the Ioniq 5 w the individual I have dealt w in the past.Not a tonne of room on the RWD LR but if I can get 1K off I will be happy, I also have to negotiate best value on my trade so that has to happen first

Q3 for AWD seems way long... I have a dec 2021 production date for AWD version. We shall see when someone with AWD order gets a VIN!
That would be ridiculous Q3 for AWD. Mine is slated for dec 21 build #370
i also placed an order for awd long range tesla model y.I just think the ioniq 5 would be better value and equipment and they gave me feb/march delivery

Oh my gosh its a way better value, no matter how you cut it. My son ordered a Tesla model Y awd long range about same time as I ordered a ioniq 5 awd, Build dates were going to be similar but I am going to guess he will get his sooner. The price difference at current msrp with fed rebate on a similar equipped ioniq 5 is over 23K. The model Y is nice but even with a longer wait for ioniq 5 its not nearly 23K nicer.

I can also say that I am a little worried about the model y for road noise I did try one out and I was a little unhappy as to how much road noise there was. I have to admit I love Tesla's drivetrain and software but there is still more to a vehicle than that as far as I'm concerned. I live in Kelowna and we got all the Heat and sun in the summer and Tesla doesn't even have a rolling sun shade for the roof!

I have always use, unhaggle.com and has been working for me. Just did a comparison and dealer cost using unhaggle is $44,770, compared with $46,945

Dealership just called and said the car should arrive next month (December). Although I also found out they screwed up when changing my order. I changed to the RWD Preferred Long Range with 2 tone grey interior but they entered black interior. We'll see how it looks.

Vancouver, BC for those wondering.

Dealerships can charge whatever they want and the MSRP is exactly that, a suggested price by the manufacturer. Dealerships are licensed resellers (franchises) and they are open to sell their vehicles at any price they want. If they advertise a price, it must include all basic costs, such as destination fees and other fees, and excluding licensing costs. The competition laws exist to protect consumers from Dealerships applying hidden costs, but they can charge whatever you want, and the consumer certainly can and should negotiate for a price even below the MSRP.

It's important to do your research so you don't over pay on your vehicle.

Dealer phoned yesterday. I was initially No. 12, and was advised that I am now No. 8 - RWD LR - and that the car should arrive at the dealership (interior of BC) by the third week of December - assuming that there is road access from the Vancouver port to the interior by that time.

So you are #307, with a RWD model, and it's already been produced? Maybe after all of the delays they went with the "under-promise and pleasantly surprise" customers on the most recent timelines. I suppose AWD cars could be taking some time longer to deliver. I'm looking forward to a test drive now.

Yes that’s correct dealer confirmed it this evening. It would make sense for the Underpromose idea as it ends up making their brand image look good when they deliver cars early. For me it was either this or the EV6 I have a deposit for both and decided whichever came first. So far Hyundai has been much better with communication than KIA has. Still no pricing and my KIA dealer told me that pricing would be announced next year which is kind of useless at this point. I look forward to receiving the car and when I do I will try to answer any questions anyone may have regarding the car!

pretty stocked here going from my 2019 Subaru STI intothe I5!
