Re: Comparing layout of the Soul EV battery with other EVs

Many thanks for the responses there, much appreciated - apologies for the delayed appreciation, I get there eventually. I've been monitoring SOH and still showing 100%. I've also started doing longer journeys, once or twice a month following easing of lockdown restrictions. These journeys are requir...

Re: Painting white wheel covers black

Looks excellent. This is what I want to do with my blue/white Soul - seriously too much white with the wheels inserts. My biggest worry (and this is the only thing I want to change - otherwise love it), is jacking the car to remove/replace wheels. Everything coming from Kia is "No!!, thou shalt...

Re: Soul EV Spy Questions and Answers

Dongle & Soul Spy say SOH = 100%, so happy bunny. Seems to have taken a couple of hefty charge cycles to get the BMS to cough up the figures but got there in the end. I didn't run it to 0% but 1 x 5% at 1 x 7%, seems to have been enough. So, big thanks to Soul Spy for their brilliant app. One of...

Re: Comparing layout of the Soul EV battery with other EVs

Apologies for this but just scanning this thread and quickly looking st the last post (and the first), am I to believe that my 2018 30kWh Soul has an 85Ah battery and I shouldn't be charging it at any more than 0.25C , which is 21.25 amps or it will have a detrimental effect regarding battery degrad...

Re: Soul EV Spy Questions and Answers

Hi Henrik, Ok, I've got the paid for app working well with the correct recommended dongle and have recorded several trips out, the recordings of which are in my phones download directory as promised. I have a couple of questions, hope you don't mind. I have scanned through this thread, so it's just ...

Re: Soul EV Spy Questions and Answers

Hi - I bought a 2018 30Kwh Soul back in November with 14k (miles) on the clock. Been loving the experience (last car Merc ML500!!). Been a little concerned as over the winter the GOM gas dropped from 120 to 94 miles. During this time the temperature has dropped to around 0'C, I've started doing 2 x ...

Re: Show us a picture of your Soul EV! ..

1st EV, 1st charge on public charger - bought the car on Tuesday, took it out for a 60 mile round trip to address range anxiety (it did) - 2018 30Kwh. I have to say, it's growing on me. I've wanted an EV since day 1 but having been in ICE's for the best part of 40 years and certainly unable to affor...
