Re: Témoin entretien

- Témoin entretien is getting a really odd translation from google translate - "witness interview". Am guessing here that you are not asking about "witness interviews". Instead you have this warning light. http://i.imgur.com/hlX7aBph.jpg It seems to be a generic fault warning tha...

Re: Battery Ageing Model

- Thanks ZuinigeRijder. That's great data. Your car is doing really well. You have the best battery efficiency figures for any car in this thread - 17.7 kWh/100km. I am assuming that is because you drive on flat terrain - no hills in NL - , and your commute has few traffic lights / speed cameras. Tr...

Re: Thinking of getting a higher mileage 2016

- The button for the trunk door on the key fob does nothing. The flashing red bars on the instrument cluster is a glitch. It has no meaning. I would just leave it as is. The few people who did bother to get a replacement instrument cluster have a mixed response. Some say it is fixed, some say it is ...

Re: Battery Ageing Model

- I am replying to the ksoul2084 message above and also his later comment in the thread - Re: Thinking of getting a higher mileage 2016 From the comments we see that his used 2016 Soul EV+ has 140k on the odometer. In the last few weeks SoulEVSpy has reported - Min Cell Det %: 0, Max Cell Det %: 33....

Re: Upgrading high-voltage battery

- There's some interesting discussion on this topic at the N issan L eaf Forum. Someone there has actually designed a board to go between the BMS and the car's control unit in order to allow battery replacements. https://i.imgur.com/YGporKJ.jpg From Battery Upgrades are very possible

Re: MY2020 Soul EV. 64kWh.

- In the final review of the new eSoul TeslaBjorn has taken off the KiaBjorn shirt and reverts back to his normal self. He again states his preference for the standard range M odel 3. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cZui4kDxgAU https://abload.de/img/64kx0j8l.png Note: I would far rather own a Soul E...

Re: SK Innovation doubles EV battery production

- https://abload.de/img/364842_260657_1944ock3d.jpg There is no actual link from Kia yet that shows the new 2020 Soul EV is using the same SK Innovation battery as the N iro EV. But I think it is a fairly safe assumption to make. I am fairly sure now that the new 2020 Soul EV does not use pure NCM81...

Re: Thinking of getting a higher mileage 2016

I also captured some numbers using SoulEVSpy. I'm pretty new to this so if someone can provide some insight into what these mean I'd appreciate it. Est. range: 75.0km. Battery min cell deterioration pct: 0 Battery max cell deterioration pct: 33.2 Battery SOH: 93.4% Odometer: 140516 km You posted th...

Re: MY2020 Soul EV. 64kWh.

- Here's KiaBjorn testing the charging of the new 64kWh Soul EV. Interesting he calls the K ona, N iro and Soul EVs triplets because they all have the same charging curve. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LFSpEid3jiQ ------------------------------------ ...Add the incentive programs that are around a...

Re: Thinking of getting a higher mileage 2016

- beanman - please keep writing these reports - its really interesting to read. Your car is a good buy. It can easily do your 20km commute. Paying 10k USD is a great price. Can you post the last 5 digits of the VIN so I can work out the manufacturing date. "Min/max percentage deterioration at 0...
