I’ll kick it off with three of my favorites:
I would like to thank Prakash, one of my first customers. Although Prakash did not score the lowest price on the Ioniq EV, he trusted me enough to take a chance on my services, and was kind enough to refer me to his friends. When prices got lower, he was tired of his friends gloating that they got a cheaper price from me. When the price hit $92/month and program expiry was looming, Prakash independently garnered interest from his friends and family, and booked a 54-passenger Coach bus from his home area to my partner dealership. The bus was only filled to 30 seats, but it still depleted three truckloads of Ioniqs. It was an exciting moment for all involved!
I have a customer who would choose to remain anonymous, that has personally provided multiple referrals to me in his own community, and also spearheaded the initiative to install a DC Fast-Charging station in his home Zip Code. The existence of affordable fast-charging in that Zip code, in turn, has served as a strong incentive for future customers to lease their EV from me.
A high school friend that I had not spoken to since high school reached out to me for my Ioniq deal. We both had moved on to new phone numbers and had no idea we were talking to old friends. He independently vetted my deal, and we only got to reunite after paperwork was signed. It was a great moment to reconnect, under such strange circumstances. It was also a moment of validation that someone I trusted would blindly trust me because of my content and fair sales practices.
