Wet floor drivers side only

Whenever it rains my 2015 Soul EV drivers side floor gets wet, even when not driving. The floor underneath the mat is soaked, however underneath the seat remains dry. Passenger side and back are all dry. Tried to find drips or leaks but could not find anything. Everything above floor level is dry. D...

Re: Three phase charging

Single phase home installations here in the Netherlands are max 40A but typically 25A. Three phase installations (with the same annual cost) are 25A per phase. By law you have to use circuit breakers that are a percentage of the max (max current divided by 1.6), so for 25A phases, 16A is used. You c...

Re: Three phase charging

Thanks both for your replies. Since I am on a 220V installation with 16A fusing per phase, I am limited to 3.5kW charging per phase. I understand the 2015 Kia Soul EV only supports single phase charging up to 32A (7kW) so it won't change anything for my charging speed if I connect all three phases o...

Three phase charging

My 2015 model is currently charging on 1 phase as my wall charger is only connected to a single phase. I am considering connecting all three phases, which is supported by my home electrical network, it’s just that the other 2 phases aren’t connected yet. Now I’m trying to find out two things: 1 - Wi...

Re: I only get 50 km, 2015 Soul estimates 130.

Yesterday the new battery pack was installed under warranty. The range shown is now 169 km and Soul EV Spy app shows a SOH of 111.5% :shock: :D

Thanks again everyone!

Re: No Proof of Maintenance

Here in the Netherlands, KIA did make a point about having full maintenance history when I claimed warranty on my battery. My car was imported from Germany, so Kia Netherlands did not have any maintenance records. It took them a while and they needed to contact Kia in Germany several times before th...

Re: The Internet Turned on the Kia Soul Today and Things Got Mean

I thought it was kinda funny. I did not know that the Kia Soul is so common, I thought not many had been sold. But apparently enough to annoy a lot of people :)

Re: I only get 50 km, 2015 Soul estimates 130.

So, I claimed a bad battery under warranty. It took some time and some convincing, but Kia Netherlands has approved a battery replacement. The dealership measured a SOH of 57%. Because the car is imported, they needed to check with Kia Germany. But everything’s fine now and the battery pack has been...
