After 6 months my car with a replacement battery still shows 110% SOH. It has lost 0.1% from Max and 0.0% from Min.
This GOM reading is higher than when the car was new.

That's fantastic!

Looking forward to seeing how mine works out in this harsh Canadian climate.

Another test of the replacement battery.

I drove 90km today using 40% of the battery.
It was 32C and I had the air-con on the whole time.
Drove mostly at 80km/h. The energy consumption was 7.5km / kWh.

These figures suggest I can get 225km from a 30kWh battery.

That sounds reasonable. My equivalent values are 6.9km/kWh and 214 km. That's with lots of hills and an average speed of about 32 km/hr, mostly without heating or aircon.

What are you using to get SOH? Would it work with a 2018 model?

90km only using 40%? :shock:
90km and I've got maybe 20% left with no A/C use and mostly around town driving..

I had mine looked at earlier this week, but haven't heard back from them yet. Really hoping Kia approves it this time around vs having to go back in a few months to have it done again. According to SoulSpy I'm anywhere between 67% - 71% as it keep bouncing every time I calibrate it.

I have a 27kWh Soul EV with a replacement battery. It has 96 updated cells, and an updated version of the BMS.
The new usable capacity seems to be 30kWh.
On both the original battery and the replacement, the BMS has PIDs which show Maximum and Minimum deterioration from a capacity that is usable capacity + early years buffer.

The 2018 Soul EV has 100 cells, and a different version of the BMS. The usable capacity is 30kWh.
It does not have these 2 PIDs.
All Hyundai / Kia electric vehicles share the same BMS; with the exception that the 27kWh Soul EV has the extra PIDs. for Maximum and Minimum deterioration.
