Did the Soul box ever become available?
I know a lot of people in the UK might be interested

We have finished test phase and SoulChip (as we named it) is available.
It is possible to deliver to any place in the World with DHL (about 30$ for quick delivery to countries far from EU).
I also plan to distribute it through distributors, as we do with other solutions (2-phase fast home/portable chargers and other EV car modifications).
Please read more here: https://evtun.com
Tommorow I will try to beat range record, using SoulChip. What is an actual range record with moderate driving?

-
My longest drive was 215km with 13% remaining. - What's your Real world actual range?

I've seen that beaten quite a few times by others but can't find the links.
The codes for using Torque Pro can be found by clicking the link in the website icon under my user name on the left.

Test done, with 50 km/h average, and speeds up to 80 km/h (some city traffic, some rural areas, as flat as possible in my mountain region).
I did it till car stopped. Till dead.
Now I know a real possible range of Kia Soul EV and IMHO I will recomend this car. It was a pleasure to drive these 4+ hours....

Hi Piro,
Looks promising, I have watched the video but can't see how far you went, did I miss something?

Have you done any dyno testing?

Cheers

It was exactly 225km or 140,7 miles.
Friends suggest that I should pump more air to wheels than standard 2.5 bar, so I could do more, but I don't care.
Range is ok for me and Soul is really comfortable.

I will probably buy a SoulChip, just need to get my Soul first. To have the ability to glide is worth it for me :)
