Re: Soul EV Spy Questions and Answers

I think I discovered that Soul EV Spy doesn't handle negative temperatures properly. Yesterday it was -33c here and when I checked my battery pack temperatures they all read 253.0, 247.0, and like that. When I rechecked them after driving about 20 mins a couple had crept above zero and read 3.0 whic...

Re: Can I upgrade my Soul EV-e (California only trim without infotainment)

Maybe look for a upgraded unit from an auto wrecker?

I have no idea if the wiring, etc. would be there for it though.

Re: 2016 Soul EV BAttery replacement - Out of Stock?

That is fantastic. Congratulations!

I wish KIA Canada would offer that kind of support. They want me to transport my car at my expense 600kms away to the nearest EV certified dealer for inspection.

Re: Does anyone know how to release this panel?

This panel looks like it's upside down to me. Who knows how to release/open it so that I can reverse it, assuming it is indeed upside-down? I have yet to come up with what it's called, and I've searched the manual and can't find the answer. The closest I've found is that it seems to cover the safet...

Re: Range Down to 39 Miles

Thanks for the update.

I'm delaying taking my 2016 to the dealer for inspection and hopefully battery replacement until the new supply is available.

Re: Pre-heating cabin in winter without charging

So I can set charging times and climate times but I was hoping I could just select to keep the battery warm all the time. It seems the only way to it is to tell it to keep the whole car warm My goal was to keep only the battery warm so as to keep it healthy. I checked the temperature in the cells t...

Re: 2016 Soul EV BAttery replacement - Out of Stock?

Interesting. I didn't buy my car from a local dealer (none of them handle EVs anyway).

What did you tell the dealer when you took the car in? Did you have any SoulSpy or other data to show the state of the battery?

Re: 2016 Soul EV BAttery replacement - Out of Stock?

Hey folks, glad to find this forum. I bought this 2016 with 36k miles and it didn't have the standard trickle charger with it, the dealer had provided one to use from another ev until he could get the Kia charger. After successfully charging it to 100% the range was 52 miles. I tried driving it dow...

Re: Battery Ageing Model

First to update you on my car. The battery seems like recovering some range gradually!, now its consumption is back at around 39% per my daily commute (last year it was 37%, 2 weeks ago it was 43 - 45%). But max deterioration, min deterioration and SOH still read the same. (4.4%, 43.8%, 64.7% respe...
