Re: Make your own trunk shelf?

The spare tire has the same bolt pattern and centre bore diameter. It will work just fine. :) Thank you for all of the information. You're making it almost too easy for me. :lol: All parts are on order now. They should arrive within the next few weeks. I will let you know how everything works out. I...

Re: End of the line for combustion engines?

I think it's important to remember that internal combustion engines will still be produced and sold even after 2035. They will simply not be used in any light-duty personal vehicles or medium duty commercial fleet transport. Heavy-duty, industrial and probably military equipment will still be exempt...

Re: Electric Vehicle Brakes

Yours might be a bit of a special case, as I'm sure you probably store your sports car inside a garage somewhere, where it's protected from the elements.

If you don't, then I must say, I am truly impressed! Do you remember what brand they are? Do you have any photos of them?

Re: Make your own trunk shelf?

That is a great way to install a spare. I think I'll do the same with my '19 Soul as well. I have a spare tire from another Kia vehicle I used to own. I just need to get to a hardware store and get a piece of threaded rod with the same thread as the insert, and cut it to size. Throw on some washers ...

Re: 2014-2019 Soul EV Floor Mats

Well shoot. You're right, the price did drop to $99 USD! Yes. They are easily cleaned by pulling them apart. Pulling them apart is very easy. The top and bottom layers are held together by some velcro around the edges of the mats. I also like the optional heel plate that it came with for the driver ...

Re: Where to get all season Floor Mats?

I would give the guys at Shark Racing a ring. They might have a set of 2-ply mats for 2020 models. I have a set for my 2019, and I coudn't be happier. Great quality, great price and great fitment. https://sharkracing.com/two-ply-clean-floor-mat-set/ You can reach them at: orders@sharkracing.com or s...

Re: Winter tires on the Soul EV - Discuss please!

The car is close to the 2 ton mark in terms of weight. The torque being near instant also helps prevent you from getting stuck. I would say first check with your local jurisdiction to see if you are indeed allowed to use studded tires. (Some places prohibit their use.) Then look at the amount of dri...

Re: Electrify Canada Charing high rate $0.77/min

Jeff, you're lucky you can charge at that rate. The Petro-Canada flat rate is a bit of a rip off for Gen1 drivers. Because our charge rate is slower, we either: - need to stay at the station longer and thus need to pay more. or - stay the same amount of time as a Gen2 car, but get less power. Either...

2014-2019 Soul EV Floor Mats

I've been searching for a decent set of floor mats for my 2019 Soul EV, I've gotta say, I think I've finally found a good set. After dealing with multiple suppliers that had no clue that the Soul EV mats are of different shape than the regular Soul, I stumbled upon Shark Racing. They have a great se...
