Re: 2016 Soul EV+ Battery Replacement - Remanufactured?

I look forward to the day when batteries have advanced to the point where they can be charged at any time and to any SOC without degrading. And if that same battery can do so 10 times faster than current technology, all the better! There are several concepts being tested behind the scenes - solid st...

Re: 2016 Soul EV+ Battery Replacement - Remanufactured?

I think @IanL is right when he says that they are new cells but in a "used" container. Should be in good shape. What I'm going to do when I EVENTUALLY get mine back (fingers crossed) is charge to 80% only, except for maybe once a month I'll charge to 100% (for calibration). Don't let it fa...

Re: 2016 Soul EV+ Battery Replacement - Remanufactured?

True. I remember reading that in the owner's warranty manual. Since the car is barely 5 years old (it's a 2016, originally sold in mid or late 2016 to its first owner) it would be in Kia's best interest to use new cells because otherwise there'd be a better than decent chance that they'd have to rep...

Re: 2016 Soul EV+ Battery Replacement - Remanufactured?

Sounds like your wait time is close to mine, so perhaps I'll be getting a call in the next few weeks informing me that I can pick up my car. The Kia representative that I spoke to (my contact person within Kia) said months ago that the battery pack was being assembled in South Korea which leads me t...

Re: 2016 Soul EV+ Battery Replacement - Remanufactured?

UPDATE: Well, here we are June 20th and I still have not heard from Kia about my battery pack. In just a few more days it will be 7 months since I dropped off my car to have the battery pack replaced. As I said in a previous post Kia contacted me in late March or early April to tell me that my batte...

Re: 2016 Soul EV+ Battery Replacement - Remanufactured?

Good to know, Mdbuilder. I'll report back on how many miles I end up with with a full charge once I get my car back.

Re: 2016 Soul EV+ Battery Replacement - Remanufactured?

Cool. REALLY looking forward to getting my car back! The battery pack is scheduled to arrive at the port in California on or around April 25, but with the slow pace of the unloading of freighters I'm hoping that it won't be sitting on a boat at the port for another 2 or 3 months waiting to be unload...

Re: 2016 Soul EV+ Battery Replacement - Remanufactured?

Is that the usable capacity or does that 28.8 include the buffer?

Re: 2016 Soul EV+ Battery Replacement - Remanufactured?

Ah, that's great to hear IanL! I was kind of hoping they'd replace it with the slightly larger 2018 battery pack (30KWH instead of 27KWH), but either way I'll be happy to be seeing 100-ish miles of range. Wow, 4 years old and still holding at 100%? That's great! I will definitely be taking extra sup...

Re: 2016 Soul EV+ Battery Replacement - Remanufactured?

UPDATE: Amazing coincidence, but on my way to work today I got a call from Kia Consumer Relations telling me that my battery is FINALLY leaving Korea and that it will hit the California port on April 25th. After being sent to one of Kia's parts warehouses and then to my actual dealership it will pr...
