Re: Going on Vacation

- My mistake. I went away on a week's vacation and forgot to turn off the 12V fusebox. Came back and the 12V battery was dead. Jump started and everything was fine, but the 12V battery died again the next evening. Jump started drove to Kia. They checked the health of the 12V battery and then replace...

Re: 2015 Soul EV: My Battery Replacement Story

Every Soul EV that has gone to Arizona has suffered severe battery degradation. There is an old thread about this.
Arizona SOUL EV Heat testing

My advice. Do not buy a Soul EV in Arizona.

Re: MY2020 Soul EV. 64kWh.

will you be ordering the new one? Yes. I ordered a Platinum Grey 64kWh Noblesse trim. According to the dealer they closed the list after 2000 orders. I am surprised that the supply of this car for Korea is so low. Fully Charged has a brief look at the new Soul EV at the LA Motor Show. https://www.y...

Two trims prestige and noblesse. The 10.25'' screen comes with the latter. https://abload.de/img/newsoul04clm.jpg The...

Re: 2015 Soul EV: Out of State Battery Replacement

- The worst out-of-state experience was for a broken ch arger in Juneau Alaska. I contacted our dealer, Lee Johnson Kia, in Kirkland WA. They went to bat for us. They have been very helpful and supportive. It is Kia who has been terribly unresponsive, and denied that they had any obligation because ...

Re: 2015 Soul EV: Out of State Battery Replacement

- Yes. You need a battery replacement. This car is showing the most severe battery degradation problems of any car we have seen. You need to contact Kia and start talking to them about how to resolve this, before sending the car out of state. If you send the car to Georgia they will reset the BMS. T...

Re: Setting up Torque to show BMS data

still no way to know the SOH of our 2018 soul ? soul EV 30kWh, 03/2018, 17000 km : No. The oldest of the 30kWh Soul EV's we are tracking is from Norway Vin #22592 It has done 27,119km. It still has the deterioration counters at zero. We assume this means the SOH is still at 100%. The individual cel...

Re: Setting up Torque to show BMS data

- It seems all the new EVs from Hyundai and Kia will be using the same battery and powertrain. (With two variants 64kWh and 39kWh) We now have confirmation that the internal workings for the Hyundai K ona Electric and the Kia N iro EV are the same.

Re: Kia EVs will shift from Chademo to CCS next year.

- The New Soul EV will be CCS1 in Korea and the US (+ Canada?). The New Soul EV will almost certainly be CCS2 in Europe. I think it will be the same as the new N iro EV CCS1 in the US via AlexonAutos https://abload.de/img/us-ccs1gmdon.png CCS2 in Europe via FullyCharged https://abload.de/img/eu-ccs2...
