Re: 2020 Kia e-Soul Battery and Performance details

I did a 300km round trip (150 slightly downhill and 150 uphill) and I used AC for at least 60% of the total time. My extrapolated range was 490km. The range at 100% was showing as 505km so I am fairly confident that I could reach 500km on a full charge. The cost in Ontario at the cheapest charging ...

Re: Battery Ageing Model

Another update on my 2016 Soul EV+ with 141K mileage. So this morning for the first time my GOM read over 100km estimated range with 100% charge (101km). Outside temp. is 9c. I've been adjusting my driving habits to better suit the car and this has been consistently increasing my range over time. My...

Re: Ex-taxicab 2018 Soul

Factory comes with a rather lame IMHO flat tire inflator + leak seal kit. You use a pressurized gas canister that contains leak seal and use it to re-inflate your tire and hopefully block the leak. It also came with a cargo cover/net and a top-shelf that would cover the contents of the "trunk&q...

Re: Thinking of getting a higher mileage 2016

Interesting. I thought these were generic fobs and the truck release simply didn't do anything as it wasn't a power lift gate. I'm going to check that out. An observation: when driving this past weekend on an almost full charge, I noticed the lower portion the the battery charge meter, I think only...

Re: Thinking of getting a higher mileage 2016

https://youtu.be/x0oFrloTuc0 Thanks for making the video! Much appreciated. Removing the shift knob is no problem but no matter what I try I can't even start to lift the console. Either I'm weak or it has stronger clips. :) Try using a small/thin flathead screwdriver, wrap the end in electrical tap...

Re: Thinking of getting a higher mileage 2016

ksoul, It's too bad you don't live closer to me, I could help you with the backup camera. But to be honest look at the way they handled some of the dismantling they probably accidentally unplugged it, or it's not seeing the shifter position. What happens when you put it in reverse? Does the screen ...

Re: Thinking of getting a higher mileage 2016

https://youtu.be/x0oFrloTuc0 Thanks for making the effort to post that video after you'd already had yours apart and put back together - appreciated! So I took my central console cover off today and... JACKPOT! ...USB board and 2nd smart key fob were both there exactly as FueledUpRooster indicated....

Re: Thinking of getting a higher mileage 2016

Hey everyone, So I decided to take the wiring out of the car today and found the SECOND KEY FOB and the AUX/USB unit completely intact! The FOB was so exciting to find, they had it connected around one of the NFC wires by winding the wire around the fob about 15 times, very odd. ... This is a remar...

Re: Thinking of getting a higher mileage 2016

You posted these numbers for your car last week. From this and your latest report, I too would guess that your battery is fast approaching 70% SOH. The battery warranty ends at 150,000km in Canada. To hit that deadline you will have to hope you reach 70% SOH before then. Fast driving in the Soul EV...

Re: Thinking of getting a higher mileage 2016

limited my highway speed to 115km/hr. That's not limiting! :shock: The Soul is a big square box, not very aerodynamic at all. Put the cruise on at 105km/h on the highway and you will do far better on the range. Oh I don't doubt it but there's a certain reality in needing to keep up with the flow of...
