No, that is my bad. This is a hardcoded string in the Soul EV Spy app, so the reason it is erroneous, is because I haven't made a special string for the 30 kWh model. The info is generated based on the VIN. I do not know if the app reliably can determine whether the car has a 27 or 30 kWh battery. Perhaps it is directly tied to model year (indicated by the 10'th character in the VIN)? So 2018 and 2019 models have 30 kWh, all previous years has 27 kWh.
My 2018 went into service in 2017 Oct I think. When I saw the reading I thought that they had put the 2017 battery in it.
If you need me to provide any specific info/data from my car to help improve the programme let me know how I can help.
Soul EV Spy has now been fixed so Kia Soul EV 2018 and 2019 displays: "Battery [LiPB 375 V, 80 Ah] + Motor [3-phase AC 80 kW]".
This fix is available from version 1.0.1-547, currently available for ALFA- and BETA-testers (so please feedback if you check this and find a bug).
If you have the Soul EV Spy app, and a Kia Soul EV 2018 or 2019 with confirmed SOH less than 100%, please email me a SoulSpyLog2020XXXX_XXXX.txt file (saved in the Downloads folder by the app when connected to car), so I can verify the PID for this value, and improve the app to report SOH for these models. email: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you do not have the paid app, i.e. use Soul EV Spy Lite, then please contact me by PM or email.
