How do I place an order?
Kindred vehicles can only be purchased online. Place your fully refundable $1,000 pre-order on our website to reserve yours.
What is the payment process after I place a pre-order?
When production is scheduled for a vehicle, pre-order customers will be asked to configure their vehicle and pay a 50% down payment to officially start the build process of their Kindred vehicle. The remaining balance of the invoiced amount is due upon delivery.
What is the cancellation policy?
Kindred allows you to cancel at any time prior to your deposit. You will get your full $1,000 pre-order payment returned to it's original form of payment. If you decide to cancel after your 50% deposit and we are in full production, your deposit is not refundable.

Pre-orders are sold out, can I still reserve a build?
Once pre-orders are sold out, potential customers can join a model specific waitlist. Kindred releases build slots to Kindred waitlist members on a regular basis. Once a build is made available, a waitlist member can either reserve a build slot by placing a pre-order or ask to be removed from the waitlist.
What is the difference between Kindred pre-order and waitlist?
Pre-order customers have paid a fully refundable deposit for a Kindred vehicle and are officially in the queue to receive a vehicle per the Kindred pre-order agreement. Those on the waitlist are not guaranteed a vehicle but will be notified before the general public once a pre-order for their model is available.
