Re: What should I know before a battery replacement?

I think we are about 8 months into our 2015 replacement battery. Just checked now and a 67% charge is showing 81 miles estimated range. Car now has 39,406 miles. Don't drive 75mph after your car has been sitting in the hot sun all day.

Re: Experience with replacement batteries

6 months into replacement of 2015 battery. 80% charge indicates 98 mile range. Not sure why the range is so much better now given that the range when new was 92 EPA miles.

Re: 2016 Soul EV+ Battery Replacement - Remanufactured?

Jeju, Since my battery was replaces a few weeks ago, our 100% charge is now giving 110+ miles of range. Let me know if there is anything I can provide to help you figure this out. I had the Torque Pro app installed on my old phone, but have a new phone now and haven't yet installed the app. If I did...

Re: 2015 Soul EV Battery Replacement

My e-mail to Electrek is below: Fred, I saw the recent article about the 2020 Soul EV with the 243 mile range. Many of us early Soul EV buyers, especially in Southwest climates, are having batteries that fail. While the vehicles have a 10-year 100,000 mile battery warranty, getting timely battery re...

Re: 2015 Soul EV Battery Replacement

Wow, that's got to be the worst case of corporate negligence WRT battery replacement that I have heard of! Our Soul has been in for 17 days and they can't provide an ETA on the battery replacement. I think based on your post that I'll have them provide a phone number for the corporate HQ so I can ta...

Re: 2015 Soul EV: Out of State Battery Replacement

Roci, Keep us posted. I'm hearing my battery is back ordered too, and I have to estimated delivery date. Will be interesting to see if they start using rebuilt batteries. I'm guessing that we consumers will not even be told if that is the case or not. They only need to get it back up above 70% is my...

Re: 2015 Soul EV: My Battery Replacement Story

I'm up for a battery replacement now too. Started a new thread about it. Not clear how long it will take for the battery to arrive. Given that Kia is eating the cost of rental cars for many months while owners wait for replacement batteries to arrive, why in the heck wouldn't they just ship a bunch ...

2015 Soul EV Battery Replacement

All, I posted in a couple other threads some issues I was having with my battery. It finally got to the point where it was only charging to less than 50 miles total range. Back in late November 2018 they did a "reset" of the battery control computer. This got me back up to >100 miles per c...
