Re: Kia Sportage 2016 (Korean version) firmware update help?

- I don't know why you want the Korean map if you don't live in Korea. But here is how to get it. Use Smart Updater Plus. The firmware and map you download will only load onto a car that was manufactured for the Korean market. You do not have to register if you choose the option on the lower left. h...

Re: Analysis of a replacement battery.

- Some more guesses this time based on range data. Over the last few days I drove 170km. The SOC displayed dropped from 100% to 20%. Average temp was about 10C. The Energy Consumption displayed on the instrument cluster was 7.6 km/kWh. I had reset this at the start. So another guess of usable batter...

Re: Charging to only 80% when not using timed charging?

...Any idea what model years it was removed from? Which years do not? The 3 years 2017-2019 do not have this setting. The newest cars have a sliding scale, allowing you to set any value. For some reason this is allowed by the EPA, but not when it has pre-defined choices.- - You can see the change i...

Re: Better mileage using "B-mode" all the time, or only some of the time?

-
You can read some of my thoughts about the 'B' vs 'D' mode debate. - The origin of the 'B' mode setting.

To summarize - Great news. The MY2020 has paddle shifters and Auto-Regen - We can say goodbye to the 'B' mode setting.

Re: 2016 EV+ Battery Replacement Story

...Sounds like a call to Kia Corporate is required because the dealership is either clueless or malicious.. I doubt it's malicious. More likely they have never done this before and are mere following their service guidelines. The first thing they are told to do is update the software. That is what ...

Re: Analysis of a replacement battery.

- Using the GOM to estimate battery capacity is not the best method. But certainly the easiest. I really should do proper range testing. That is something I want to do when the weather is warmer. (about 20C). For now I'm just watching to see how far it goes over the next 3 or 4 days until I need to ...

Re: Setting up Torque to show BMS data

- In a couple of recent videos TeslaBjorn has been using the carscanner app on a 64kWh Soul EV. (called e-Soul in Europe). Here we see an image from a camera facing the phone screen overlaid onto an image from the forward view camera. https://abload.de/img/carscannerxmj7n.png Carscanner appears to b...

Re: Analysis of a replacement battery.

- Here's a couple of preliminary guesses at the pack's capacity. Based on the possible increase in the energy density of the cells from 37.5Ah to 40Ah. (Cell pairs in parallel have double this.) A technical description of the E400 cell is here :- APR13 : Energy Storage - Advanced Battery Development...
