Re: What to watch out for? (Besides Battery Health)

- If the winter temperatures where you live are below -26C then I would avoid this car. This seems unlikely in Colorado, but maybe you live on a high mountain. Reason - California cars do not have a battery heater, which is needed for extreme cold. I don't have a battery heater and will never need o...

Re: Battery Ageing Model

... Is it common with this much variation between the readings each time the car calibrates/calculates the SOH? Does anything (eg. temperature, recent consumption details, or other factors) affect the input of the calculation?... Yes. The values for deterioration fluctuate a lot. (Maybe +/- 5%, may...

Re: Charging Fault error.

- The majority of older soul EVs had their OBCs changed. Most have been problem free since then. I hope this isn't the start of a second wave of failures. Here's an official video showing the meaning of the charging lights above the dash. The 3 blinking lights is the most common error message on thi...

No. In fact SoulEVSpy can show more. (odometer, ambient temp, VIN).
I recommend you get SoulEVSpy because it is easier to install.

Re: level 2 charging cables/charging rate

...Sooo, basically my question is will the Soul play nicely if I give it a 240V 16A charge? The answer to this is yes. But I also agree with the others that you should get the 40A. Here is the data from my car charging from a 16A stand. https://abload.de/img/photo_2016-12-22_15-2vzse4.jpg

You are confused about the warranty on an Electric Vehicle.
It is the EV System Warranty that is important for us.
This is 10 years / 100,000 miles regardless of owner.

Re: Battery Ageing Model

...Now in the Jordanian market, there are many Souls that have their batteries degraded sharply. I can see that around 2 thirds of the cars offered for sale (around 30 cars usually) actually have degraded batteries. That sounds possible if most of these cars have been bought over from the US. In 20...

Re: Comparing Battery Chemistries

- I now have some circumstantial evidence to back up this speculation - E375 cell is a 37.5Ah cell. This is the cell used in the Kia Soul EV from June 2014 to June 2017. It is NMC622. (Called Nickel Rich or LMO Free) E400 cell is a 40.0 Ah cell. This is the cell used in the Kia Soul EV from June 201...

Re: 2016 Soul EV+ Battery Replacement - Remanufactured?

- I had my replacement battery put in today. It looked similar to the one in the image just above. 96 new cells and the wiring inside a big wooden crate. These cells are newly made, and are a newer type than the original cells. They are labelled as MY18 cells. Here's the label on the outside of the ...
