    Kia E Soul 64kWh

    March 2023

    "From the start Simon was a great help to teach us some of the details of EV ownership and find out what we should be looking at. Very knowledgeable on the technology and car models. New Kia eSoul going great on big and small roads, great features in car are a big hit with all of us. We are also enjoying more relaxed driving pace (but with option to zoom!) and have found it fun also exploring different charging options (we are engineers!). We have done some decent trips now e.g. Cork and back easy peasy so all in all great experience. Very satisfied. Would highly recommend going full electric for short but also for big trips with this car. And would also highly recommend Simon and next eco car."

    "Bought a Nissan Leaf from Next Eco Car in 2022. The car was in fantastic nick and Simon was incredibly accommodating and so easy to deal with. Definitely felt well looked after and valued. The car has been perfect for our needs and was a really good first step into the EV world. Would highly recommend Next Eco Car for anyone looking for a good quality second hand EV."

    "Simon is not a typical car salesman. I found him to be both knowledgeable and extremely professional. I was also very pleasantly surprised by how competitively the car was priced in comparison to a similar one in Northern Ireland (€800 cheaper). He delivered the car to my house and provided a good after sales service which reassured me as a first time electric car driver. I recommend Simon highly to anyone thinking of purchasing an electric vehicle for the first time."

    "Simon at Next Eco Car could not have been more helpful both throughout the sale process and beyond. The customer service and care taken to ensure that we were totally satisfied with both the car and the transition to our first electric vehicle was second to none. We would thoroughly recommend Next Eco Car to anybody considering making the switch, or upgrading their current EV."

We are delighted to refer Next Eco car to anyone that is looking to switch to EV cars, not only will they provide you a great car to suit your needs but the knowledge and support to help you on your transition from petrol/diesel vehicles."

    "Simon has been so helpful throughout my electric car experience. He was really easy to talk to and never put any pressure on me to buy anything. I told him my budget and what I wanted and he was very supportive. Delivered the car in excellent condition and even got some minor damage sorted before he delivered it which was great. He has also been very helpful for post sales support and not a classic sales person who tries to get rid of you afterwards. Couldn't recommend their service enough!"

    ‘I would highly recommend Simon and Next Eco Car. Everything from sales process, quality of information and reliability as well as excellent delivery of car are all five star.

    Will certainly use Simon again and would encourage anyone looking to purchase their first EV car to talk to Simon as he will give you honest information.’

    "The car sold was in excellent condition and with a highly competitive pricing. For someone with no experience in buying a car, Simon made me feel completely safe and comfortable in deciding for it. The transaction was smooth and I would definitely do business with him and Next Eco Car again. Highly recommended!"

    "After a few months going further and further down the electric vehicle rabbit hole I was ready to take the plunge. I had initially planned on importing a car from the UK myself but a friend suggested that I speak to Simon first.
    Simon was friendly, efficient and transparent in sharp contrast to the main dealer salesmen I had met while test driving cars. In the end of the day the extra cost of going with Simon was completely worth the reduced risk and hassle so I went for it.
    The process was seamless, we agreed everything by phone and email and 2 weeks later the car was delivered to my house. Simon went through every little detail that I needed to know and even dropped the logbook over a week later when he received it. It's the little things like which apps to use for checking chargers and managing the vehicle.
    His knowledge of electric vehicles and customer services is second to none and I would highly recommend him."

    "Next Eco Car took the time to answer a myriad of questions without ever putting me under pressure to buy. They took my own personal circumstances into account in order to recommend the right car for my lifestyle and driving habits. They gave me the extra confidence I needed to buy an EV, and I have never looked back! My next car will definitely be an EV and Next Eco Car will be the first place I look for it."

    “Simon was a consummate professional and was only too happy to help... He even offered to deliver the vehicle to my house so I wouldn’t have to drive over in another car! His knowledge of the industry and car makes and models was impeccable. Cannot recommend highly enough.

    BMW i3 94ah BEV

    February 2019

    "Simon Acton found me a great car in the UK! He knows the Irish EV and UK market inside and out and sourced a pristine second-hand BMW i3 less than three years old across the water, which he checked it out personally and once he was satisfied that it was the right buy, delivered it to me with the VRT and Irish reg numbers, valeted and with all the charging plugs and documentation. He is great to deal with, his attention to detail is exceptional.
    My husband was originally suggesting another make to me, but he has fallen in love with my car and is thinking of getting an electric car himself later on.
    Can't recommend Simon and Next Eco Car highly enough."

    "I recently purchased my very first electric car from Next Eco Car Limited. When I set out to replace my existing petrol car, I knew that I wanted it to be an electric model, but I wasn’t sure which exact type (hybrid/fully electric etc), make or model I wanted to go with. Next Eco Car was highly recommended on a Facebook Group of which I was a member, so I took a look at their website.
    I found that they had a great range of cars in stock, and decided to call to find out more. When I called, I spoke to Simon. He was travelling, and unable to speak in great detail, but he arranged to call me back within the hour. He was as good as his word, and when he called me back, he went into great detail with me and answered the many questions I asked about owning an Electric car. Rather than pushing a particular car, he went into detail to find out my particular needs, and only then did we discuss cars in stock.
    I had read other reviews from his website, and I can confirm that Simon is extremely knowledgable about electric vehicles, and very professional in his approach. He spent a great deal of time speaking with me, so that I knew what was involved in purchasing an electric car, and in getting set up for on-street charging etc. He really helped to put my mind at ease with moving to an electric model.
    I decided on a 162 Renault Zoe. Simon hand-picks the cars himself, and this model offered a great spec, low mileage and fantastic value. It’s basically like a new car! The purchase process itself was super smooth, and the hand-over was very professional, with Simon taking the time to show me the key things I needed to know about the car, as well as how to charge it.
    I’d highly recommend Simon and Next Eco Cars Limited to anyone who is thinking of purchasing an electric car. When people ask me what it’s like, I can only liken it to moving from an old Nokia phone to your first iPhone… the difference in terms of ownership, running costs and sheer joy of driving is that profound. I’ll never go back to a combustion engine, and my when it’s time for my next electric upgrade, I’ll certainly call Simon first to see what he has in stock.”

    "I could not be happier with the service provided by Simon and Next Eco Car. For us it was not just a purchase, but a process, and Simon guided us through each step with his expertise and honest/helpful approach. While I had a fair idea of which car we were looking to buy from the outset, I have no doubt that Simon guided us to the best vehicle and outcome for us. We love our new EV and are comforted by knowing that should we have any issues or questions, Simon will do all that he can to help. I would highly recommend Next Eco Car to all."

    "My experience of buying my car from Next Eco Car (Simon) was a very good experience, particularly for someone not having any experience in the car market in Ireland. Customer service was excellent and Simon accommodated well our schedules and extension for closing the sale. I found the process transparent and comfortable for a first time buyer. We received customer support from start to finish, and even post sale support. I am very happy with the car and I think I had a very good value purchase. I would definitely recommend them to any of my friends. Thanks very much Simon!"

    "When I contacted Next Eco Car initially, it was about a specific car but unfortunately some lucky person got there before me. However, Simon offered to source a similar car and gave me options along with detailed pictures and information. He handled the import, registration, and paperwork involved including additional paperwork for the battery. Throughout the process, the communication and response from him were second to none. After we received our car this continued. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Simon & Next Eco Car for anyone interested in purchasing an EV. It really took all the stress and hassle out of it."

    "I would highly recommend Next Eco Car to anybody considering purchasing a hybrid or electric car. Simon’s knowledge of the sector is excellent. He couldn't have done any more for me when I was looking for my BMW i3. He is one the most genuine people I have ever dealt with in the motor industry with a superb emphasis on customer service. I couldn't recommend him highly enough and would happily use his services in the future."

    "I would recommend Next Eco Car highly. We were nervous about entering the electric car arena but Simon allayed our fears with his specialist knowledge. He patiently listened to our requirements (and my endless rounds of questions) and sourced a high quality car from the UK from his contacts which he delivered to our door ready to drive. He also guided us through the many options for home charging, helping us choose the best option for us. His enthusiasm is infectious and he is open, honest and very helpful . I would recommend Next Eco car if you want help navigating the many options for going electric and want a high quality second hand car with all documents/service history in order."

    We bought our first EV from Next Eco Car and are so happy that we did.
    Naturally we were nervous about buying an electric car for the 1st time. Simon is one of those people who provide a service that you would be forgiven for thinking "OK, what's the catch" because he goes way above and beyond what "traditional" car sales people do.
    There is no catch, he just delivers a really quality and personal service. His attention to detail was incredible and during the entire car sourcing process he took extra steps to make sure the final car we bought was exactly to our spec, right down to color and mileage. We were never made feel rushed to get things done and another sale notched up.
    If you are considering buying an electric vehicle, I would not look further than Simon. We've already recommended him to a friend who wants an EV after seeing ours.

    "I’ve just taken possession of my new Nissan Leaf Acenta 142D EV - thanks to Simon. I was extremely impressed by his professional and credible approach to the whole process from idea to purchase. He walked me through the benefits of owning an EV and assured me that he only supplied quality cars to his customers. I wasn’t disappointed as the car was delivered in Showroom condition and it’s a delight to drive. Simon also arranged the installation of my home charging port and a 6mth warranty......service over and above the actual sale (inc a full demo of the vehicle, ESB Charge Card application, Carwings Membership etc). I’d highly recommend Simon and Next Eco Car if you’re considering purchasing an EV or Hybrid."

    "Simon was a pleasure to deal with and his knowledge of Electric Vehicles is excellent. Simon's customer service was also excellent. His service didn't finish on completion of the sale, he is still in touch with us post sale to ensure everything is OK. I would highly recommend Simon to deal with."

    "Simon was so professional from the first phone call to enquire about the car. He knew the car very well and explained it fully in every detail. Anyone buying an EV need to talk to Simon @ next eco car, as if he hasn't got it in stock he will get it in for you. In Ireland at present people are a little scared to move to EVs, but I've had the Nissan Leaf just over a month and really enjoy it so far. With a little bit of forward thinking and planning and a little bit of support from Simon, he will plug you in!"

    BMW i3


    "I’d always had diesel large exec estates – Audi A6, BMW 520d and most recently a Mercedes E300 Hybrid, which managed slow speeds on the battery, with a light foot. I had test driven a Tesla Model S, which was amazing and similar total cost to the Mercedes, with a far higher monthly lease, but savings on tax and fuel.
    Out of curiosity I thought I’d have a quick test-drive in a BMW i3 and was hugely impressed, that led to me buying one with the range extender and virtually every option.
    I’ve had the car for about nine months now and wouldn’t consider going back to a petrol or diesel car. I’ve been getting 140 miles on a charge in the summer, and around 110 in the winter, and so far have only needed to use the range extender once on a long journey, as the DC fast chargers at service stations have been great. Half an hour of charge while getting a coffee and it has another 80 miles worth of charge.
    Performance is amazing due to the instant torque, there’s not much else on the road that will stay with it 0-40 and it’s great fun to drive.
    With three children it wouldn’t work as our family car, but for the work commute and when one of us is popping out at the weekend it’s fine. We have a charge point at home, so just plug it in when arriving home and it’s fully charged about three hours later. We also switched to a 100% renewable electricity supplier at home, so know that it’s green at source, as well as during use.
    I certainly wouldn’t go back to a petrol or diesel car now as my daily-driver."
