Re: Battery Ageing Model

Thanks for your explanation, Now my SOH dropped to 64.7%. I do not know if the warranty covers my KIA, the car is imported from USA-California, I do not think that KIA middle east will accept a warranty claim. The max and min deterioration are 43.8% and 4.4% respectively (big gap !!). I monitored th...

Re: Battery Ageing Model

I already did, it shows 69% !
But I am using the Soul Spy Lite, the free version. Is this figure reliable ?!

and how could that big drop happen in a month ?! I used for a 15 months and it was performing fine.

Re: Bad battery?

I am surprised at the very high cost of battery replacement. Here in Jordan there are few mechanical shops now which will do that for less than 5000$ !. But it is not a new Kia Soul battery. I found a one who sold a battery from a wrecked Soul (with ODO meter of 30,000 km) for 2,900 JD, which equals...

Re: Driving Diary

Yes, there is no resistance to your movement if you are pressing your accelerator in B mode. I meant if the street is straight for example, then you would release the accel. pedal, in that case if you just let your car go forward by its momentum, it is more economic than higher regen braking. I noti...

Re: Driving Diary

Hi Ed, I noticed that you are using the "B" mode all the time. This actually is not a good choice, in fact it will degrade your fuel economy! If you are driving on a straight or a slightly inclined street, then it is more economic to use your car momentum to go forward. In the B mode the c...

What SOH I have ?

Hi, I am a new Kia Soul EV owner. My car is 2015, I bought it 45 days ago. Its ODO is at 25,500 Miles now. I can't access the UVO services. Also I do not understand how to get the BMS data that some of you guys is using to calculate the SOH of the battery. My car can drive around 122 miles on a sing...

Did any owner drove a KIA Soul for more than 80,000 Miles on the same battery ?

Hi,

I am a new KIA Soul EV owner from Jordan. I bought a car that was imported from USA. I would like to know if any of the owners reached 80,000 Miles without having to replace the main battery.


Thanks
