Re: Soul Spy?

- Looks like one of the cells has gone bad. If so you will be getting a battery replacement soon. To be sure, please post the voltage heatmap screen. Once after driving - try accelerating up a hill - stop at the top and take a screen shot. Once when charging - try to get a screen shot just before ch...

Re: Battery Ageing Model

- The new 64kWh Soul EV uses the same BMS codes as the N iro EV and the K ona EV. These are only slightly different from our own. Recently in Canada an owner of a new 64kWh Soul EV with 2000km on the odometer has complained, "It charges at 10kW at 65% SOC. 283km on the GOM fully charged. Dealer...

Re: Looking for my Second EV

- I have a 2015 that still has 100% SOH and can easily drive over 100 miles in all seasons here. ( We don't have cold winters, so no winter tires or snow to deal with. ) A 2018 with the slightly larger battery would be more likely to do that in colder weather, and probably the battery would last a b...

Re: 2016 Soul EV+ Battery Replacement - Remanufactured?

- I still have no proof that battery replacements for the 27kWh cars are now being doing with 30kWh packs. But there are certainly many stories about this now. There is a 2014 here in Jeju that just had its battery replaced after 110,000km. Kia told the owner that the new battery was 30kWh. I want t...

Re: Looking for my Second EV

- I looked on Craigslist to find the comparison price for the two cars you mention. A 2017 Soul EV and a 2017 N issan L eaf. I assume you live near Los Angeles, so that's where I looked first. Yes, in Los Angeles the Soul EV seems more expensive. I think that is because there are few of them. But, w...
