Re: Latest Free Map Upgrade

Great information 2020SoulEV. I took my car in for changing tires to All Weather on Nov 19 and while it was there I was told it would get 2 software updates. When they checked they found one was already done so it may well be the one or part of the one that came with my map updating experience. The ...

Re: Pre-heating cabin in winter without charging

Thanks Soulman. I have set the car to Winter Mode and I read it only kicks in at -10 (I think) and the battery actually prefers cooler weather. The main drop re. range seems to be the use of cabin heat. I sometimes pre-heat the car with it plugged in and the charging light comes on when I do so I as...

Re: Pre-heating cabin in winter without charging

Thanks for the posting ksoul2084 Actually, the optimal idle storage temp. for a Li-Ion battery is just above freezing, with approx. 50% charge. 2c is basically optimal I think. Where the concern comes in from low temps is when trying to charge or use the battery. Then it is more limited in terms of ...

Re: Pre-heating cabin in winter without charging

So I can set charging times and climate times but I was hoping I could just select to keep the battery warm all the time. It seems the only way to it is to tell it to keep the whole car warm My goal was to keep only the battery warm so as to keep it healthy. I checked the temperature in the cells to...

Re: 2020 64kWh in Ontario - at last!

Great about the trade in value. Hope the same happens for me. Re. the cold: - I have noticed a drop already - I will work out percentages at the end of November so it is more realistic, but I was above 460km and I am now much nearer 400km - I keep good notes - I am changing to Nokian All Weather tir...

Latest Free Map Upgrade

KIa informed me that the 2020 EV qualifies for 2 map update per year for 10 yrs from the date of purchase - great news. Plus you could download the updates, add to a USB key and install yourself - again great news. My experience: - I will try to keep it short (honest) - make sure you opt for the EV ...

Re: Soul EV Spy Questions and Answers

Understand your dilemma Neel! I went through a similar process when I looked for one but luckily picked a good one right away. You can actually buy them directly from Konnwei BTW and I am pretty sure they would work. I found out AFTER I got the one from eBay. I thought they would not sell to individ...

Re: Soul EV Spy Questions and Answers

This one DOES work perfectly (not sure how you define this but I get all the screens with data) - my Soul is a 2020 64kW but the app was designed for earlier Souls initially. It is still being developed remember.

Re: 2020 64kWh in Ontario - at last!

Great bluelines1974! They are amazing vehicles. I am keeping detailed notes about charging and efficiencies and I am saving about $100 a month on "fuel" (my last ICE car was about $110 a month) , and it costs around 1c per km by charging at the lowest rate (0.065 per kW) . I suspect that d...
