Re: Roll call for PacNW Soul EV owners!

Just had a 2016 EV+ delivered to Seattle. It was really inexpensive, is really well made, and has tons of features. What a great car!

Re: 2016 vs 2017 differences worth considering?

I have a SOUL EV of September 2014 which can also DC charge till 94% after a software update already a while ago. And it also has Android Auto/Apple Carplay possibility. So there is no difference between 2016 and 2017, it is all depending if all (latest) software updates are done...... Wow! Sounds ...

2016 vs 2017 differences worth considering?

After my local car share services shut down, I am considering buying an EV (don't own a car now). I've been keeping my eyes open for a deal on a 2017 as I read this model year introduced faster quick charging than in previous years and can be had under $15k.
