Re: My Soul EV's Full Charge Is About 10 Miles Less In Colder Weather(below 50 degrees)

sadly across most if not all EVs winter and summer mean dramatic swings, My 2016 Soul goes from 95-100mi in 80-90F down to 75mi in 40f or less. and drops consistently as Fall season moves to winter. My 2014 Ford Focus Electric dropped form 76-80mi to 45 mi back in the day. Larger packs suffer less, ...

Re: Connecting car WiFi with home WiFi

the only WIFI enabled app is Yelp, and I believe The idea was to connect your car while charging to a Netflix type solution and stream while sitting charging. It never materialized and therefore a dead end. A waste really. From a safety perspective, it doesn't work while driving, as in connecting it...

Re: UVO Modem down

just to confirm, no 3G modem or service we can still do all carplay and other entertainment through the phone, just not unlock the car or check charging status of the car... What about setting charge timers with internal software? programing preheat etc through the dash vs the phone op?

Re: 2016 Soul EV @ 3rd day: "Check EV System" light on. What the

Just as an update. Yesterday my DC charger failed. last week charged from 20-85% on Chademo, then the orange triangle came on and the turtle poked it's ugly head for reduced power. So yesterday, hooked to chademo at 20% SOC and ramped up to 40kWh and then stopped and threw up codes on the driver and...

Re: DC Charging not Working

2 Things have happened for my 02/16 built 2016 Soul EV + DC charging stopped working in March 2020 with EVGo and private Dealer ChaDemo without throwing up any error or faults. Took to dealer after COVID restrictions loosened. Dealer saw no codes in memory. They said 2 software updates were needed. ...

Well, It is happening to my 2016 EV+. This morning the drive to school, the orange triangle EV! came on. The car, on a 56f day, should read about 85-90 miles of range, and after driving 5 miles, the car gave me 104mi of range. the range steadily increased as I drove. I suspect it is the same issue o...

Apple CarPlay is slow with iOS 11.2.2 on 5S

Hi, 6000+ miles on 2016 EV+. From day one I upgraded to Apple CarPlay on UVO. I have an iPhone 5S with iOS 11.2 on it, and since the 11.2 upgrade a couple weeks/month ago, the whole CarPlay experience has slowed down significantly. The Home button doesn't respond. In Music, the back button doesn't r...

Re: Extended Warranty for EV 2017

You can check and see if you can buy the warranty after the sale. Usually you can extend your warranty at any point while still under factory warranty. This way you don't tie up your money for 3-5 years while the car is under Kia warranty. At that point you can shop around and get lots of different ...

Re: Welcome to the Kia Soul EV Forum

Hi, Just got my 2016 Soul EV+ this weekend. I came out of a 2014 Ford Focus Electric after 3 yr 35,300 miles. 76 mile range worked but was close and difficult to manage in coldest of winters when down to 48mi. I hope the mid 70s does the job. Not much DC charging on Long Island NY. We'll see. At 6'7...
