They're up here in Canada and include the 120V trickle charter, Winter mode (...

Re: City and Cruise type chargers?

The manual estimates a charge time of 9 hours and 35 minutes for the “Cruise-type” (i.e.64kWh) battery, using a level 2 AC charger. What’s frustrating is that the manual doesn’t state the performance specs of the level 2 charger assumed to be used (e.g. 20A, 30A, 50A?) in the charge time estimate. I...

Re: level 2 charging cables/charging rate

I've been delving into this for a few days now. Of course I want the 50A 240V circuit, but the 200A service upgrade and surgery necessary to my home (100A service is recessed into the home, not surface mounted) is beginning to look cost-prohibitive. I'm going to see if I can squeeze out one more 20A...

Re: Kia Soul EV Premium 2020 Trip Vancouver to Whistler - BC, Canada

Appreciate the trip details and outcomes :D . I just got the same model a week ago. Mine is garage kept at home and work and I'm driving 34-40km 5 days a week. Trying to decide if I should trickle charge (120V) daily (to 80% as manual recommends) or just wait until charge is down to about 25-30% (wh...
