Re: Battery Ageing Model

Hello,
Can anyone with quite a low mileage/high soh post a cell map at any low state of charge ? Like under 5% SOC. It will be helpful for me.
My cell voltages are 3.42 and the car shows 1% SOC.
THANKS

Re: Better mileage using "B-mode" all the time, or only some of the time?

I am a fan of trying all modes, I own my Soul 2015 since 3 years. I tried all the modes (normal with ECO off, ECO on, B mode) at the same route, trying to optimize the energy consumption. You know what!, I noticed no difference at all !!. It is all about how much you press your pedal, and how much y...

Re: Creaking/Crunching Over Dips in Cold Weather

Mine too does the same 95,000 Km on it. Very normal of Kia's, :D. A month ago I drove a RAV4 ev 2014. With 180,000 Km. It handles much better. No sounds. Battey still holds enough charge to cover 170 Km. If Toyota continued that model it would outsell all electric cars maybe except Tesla Kia, and Hy...

Re: Used soul 65 mile round trip

Hello, The car can make it even in winter. When my 2015 car had a good battery it could travel like 90 miles in the very cold days in winter with climate control on. But that is not the point. With this driving range, you will use most of your battery capacity in many days, this way your battery wil...

Re: Which Electric car battery is the most durable ?

I'm not sure exactly what you're asking.. Are you looking to get a new vehicle and are asking which one on the list is best, or are you just buying the battery and somehow installing it in your existing car? Here there are few shops who can fit almost any battery to your car, they modify the hardwa...
