Out of curiosity, I've been looking at used Soul EVs (2015-2016) online recently and I noticed a lot
of them in CA have battery degradation, (with some at low as 30k miles). For instance, dealer pictures of the dash shows them sitting at 50% SOC with like 22 miles on the GOM. Looks like the CA heat (and fast freeway driving) has been taking a huge toll on these poor Soul EVs (like in AZ).
Now would be a great time to buy a Soul EV for cheap ($10-15k), get a new battery (if you're patient enough), and flip it/keep it! The 10yr/100k battery pack warranty in the U.S. is going to cost Kia more than their share over the lifetime of the car.

My GOM was at ~50 miles at full charge, at 37k miles. Real drivable miles was 45-55 mi at freeway speeds.
