Using the numbers from http://ev-sales.blogspot.com
for H1 sales of the Kia Soul EV
With the addition of the Korean figure published recently in the Korean news.
Code: Select all
Europe 1888 ---- (Norway 649, France 492, Germany 292 ...)
North America 919 ----- (USA 613, Canada 306)
South Korea 310
We also have the sales of the BAIC E-Series EV in China of 9.977.
There are links to details about this car in this thread - Rising Chinese EV Sales
Follow the links to see that the Chinese cars use the same 30.5kWh battery packs as the Soul EV.
This gives the total H1 car sales with SK Innovation battery packs as 3117 + 9997 = 13,114
If all these cars have a 30.5kWh battery pack then the total battery pack capacity was 399,977 kWh or 400 MWh
So I'm wondering why the very same ev-sales.blogspot.com thinks that the total battery capacity produced was 241 MWh
Given that the yearly production number was 800 MWh until the expansion in July. The H1 six month total of 400 MWh does not seem far fetched.
1/Matching the Soul EV sales and production figures is still really distorted by the 'EU Emissions Scam' that Kia pulled in the second half of 2015.
What I see when I add up the numbers is
H1 2015 sales 2447, prod 3300
H2 2015 sales 6005, prod 4800
H1 2016 sales 3117, prod 6130
2/I don't know if all the BAIC E-Series EV sales listed are cars with SK Innovation battery packs. If not I have no way of separating the figures.
