Re: Sudden range reduction caused by new tires?

Normally the tires can not make more than 5% difference. even if you choose a little wider tires. There must be another factor I am with Omar on this one. Now that I have spent some time with the new tires, I have noticed very little change in my efficiency overall. 4.6mi/kWh puttering around town ...

Re: Sudden range reduction caused by new tires?

What is your efficiency showing? I just had to get tires myself (two non-repairables so I did all 4) and ended up with some non-LRR tires. mostly 3.9-4mi/kWh on the way home which is pretty typical for me, though I will have to see how I do with more regular driving.

Re: Sudden range reduction caused by new tires?

I don't have any feedback but I am wondering about the same thing, also in PNW here and wondering how critical the LRR tires are to range

Re: Battery Checkup at Dealership

Sounds like you got the same service advisor as me... Beaverton Kia? Lol. Dude insisted, multiple times, there was "no test in the world" that could tell you the health of your battery.

Re: What should I know before a battery replacement?

Was I mistaken in understanding that 27 kWh = 100% SOH, and 110% comes from Kia unofficially installing overcapacity 30 kWh batteries in new models? Regarding the SOH test, I've heard experiences similar to yours from several members. Which is odd, since I brought multiple Soul EVs to my local Kia ...

Re: What should I know before a battery replacement?

I am a recent '15 battery recipient. I got a remanufactured pack, rated at 110% SOH, same as the original 27kWh pack. I don't expect it to degrade any worse than a new one, we don't know how many of the cells have been replaced, it could even be all of them! So far mine has not degraded at all (arou...

Re: Soul Spy?

Would you buy the Soul EV Spy android app, if it was priced at $15 at google play store? Is it worth it? Why or why not? What is the value of the app, if not $15? What are the currently existing need-to-have features of the app? What features are wanted, but missing from the app currently? What are...

After forcing a calibration (run to <20% then charge to 100%) my reman battery is showing an estimated 100% SOH in SoulSpy. min and max det both read 1.

Re: 2015 Soul EV: Out of State Battery Replacement

It updated last night... My SOH was steadily declining over the last month from 84 to 77%. SOH was 36.7% this morning, holy moly. I thought it was a glitch until I read your reply. But the math checks out, I typically go 30-35 miles on a charge. I chalked it up to some highway driving, and was wait...

Re: 2015 Soul EV: Out of State Battery Replacement

Not sure what "normal" is but I think .2 is quite significantly off of that, that's about how mine were looking as well before the replacement. Looks like you have at least 2 bad cells. Have you updated Soul Spy? The new version has a more accurate SOH estimator, what is it saying yours is...
