Re: New owner! Kia Access/UVO Not Working

Thank you for the welcome! As for the price, I live in Washington DC, and it was USD. Unfortunately not CAD :) As for the 250k miles, that’s probably just a dream. But I’m gonna give it a go! Hoping my battery goes under 70% SOH at 8-9 years or 80-90k miles or so... My daily commute is currently ab...

Re: New owner! Kia Access/UVO Not Working

Hey all! First post, just bought a Certified Pre-Owned 2016 Soul EV Base with 19,550 mi on it. My first EV! Doing a bit of research, I discovered that the UVO and Kia Access stuff won’t likely work due allegedly to the phasing out of 3G. Came here to confirm that is indeed the case, and/or find a w...

Re: Heat pump stopped working, no apparent cause

[...]So there we have it. There is nothing Kia service seems willing or able to do to fix this. I now have a vehicle with an inoperative heat pump, which is consuming far more power than it should for heating (killing range in the process). The only positive is that the second dealer did not charge...

Re: Import of used Soul EVs to Jordan

[...] But I can tell that the weather here is optimal for this car. I can see that the range I experience is higher than the one reported by the users in USA. On average I can travel 180 - 200 km (110 - 125 miles) in one charge. I guess weather and the topography of my city are the main reasons to ...

Re: Comparing layout of the Soul EV battery with other EVs

[...] C-rate is defined as the charge / discharge current divided by the nominally rated battery capacity. The nominally rated battery capacity of the pack is 180Ah. A rapid charge of 64kW will have a C-rate of about 1 on such a battery pack. Generally speaking for lithium ion batteries 0.25C is th...

Re: Replacement battery log: 2016 EV+ @ 43k mi.

Thank you for that! I did get the CarScanner app and a Veepak OBD (w/ iOS device; don't have Android) and tried looking for an "SOH measurement." The closest category I found that somewhat matched was: MAXIMUM DETERIORATION: 49.1%. (which makes sense if my car is only getting 50 miles ran...

Re: Differences between the 2020 and 2021 Kia Soul EV?

I found something relating to price for UVO service. Apparently, we are using the "lite" version. As for the paid versions, there are tiers. Take a look: https://www.petawawakia.com/2019/11/27/what-is-kias-uvo-intelligence/#:~:text=Kia's%20UVO%20Intelligence%2C%20and%20What%20You%20Need%2...
