2020 Soul EV - interior & exterior shots

Finally a good look at that center console. Blanks on both sides definitely look like housing for heated and/or cooled seats.

Re: 2015 Soul EV: Out of State Battery Replacement

Ouch, that looks pretty bad :? . You're definitely on hook for a new battery, but as Jeju mentioned, it may be an uphill battle for you fighting with the dealer (with back-and-forth) out of state. I would definitely not recommend this car to anyone who doesn't have a EV-certified Kia dealership near...

Re: L.A. Auto Show Media Day Crasher + Photos

Whoa, that's interesting. I believe that the "Designer Collection" is the top level trim. Good that it has heated rear seats, but looks like no more ventilated seats.

Re: L.A. Auto Show Media Day Crasher + Photos

Ha, that's funny. You know what they say, fake it 'till you make it! ;) Too bad you didn't get more shots of the interior, not too many of those around. Do you know if the car had heated rear seats or ventilated front seats? I can't find any info on those in the press release, and it would be a sham...

Re: 2020 Soul EV - 64kWh battery: 200+ mi

I believe that there's two different sizes for the touchscreen. The one in the image you linked is the standard version (7 inch?). The massive 10.25 inch one is different (ultra wide screen).

Re: 2015 Soul EV: My Battery Replacement Story

KISH, I appreciate your technical expertise! I'm not that technical - I'm just a guy with a 2016 Soul EV+, 31,000 miles, that originally had a 92 mile range, now 65. It has been dropping 1 mile per week for the last 6 weeks. Troublesome. I am also in SoCal, Orange County, specifically. You mentione...

Re: Heat Pump vs No Heat Pump

This is mine (2015 MY), Soul EV shipped and sold in CA. Looks like I too have a heat pump?

I thought all Soul EVs came with heat pump? Only the battery heater was optional, and mostly available in colder climates (e.g. Canada).
