Re: Roll call for PacNW Soul EV owners!

I’m in Graham, WA; S of Puyallup with 52k miles on our 2016, black w red roof. No other Soul EV owners active in the Seattle EV Association, so sign on, folks! I commuted 75 miles one-way in it for a year before upgrading a 2011 LEAF to 40 kWh as a demonstration project for http://www.EV-works.com,...

Re: US DOE EV Sales Data

Cool data, thank you! I wonder how leases (and especially lease returns) are handled in the data, are they ever a a sale? Many U.S. lease returns of e-cars seem to get imported into British Columbia. :)

Re: U Haul for Trailer Hitch

Wanted to share my experience with U Haul. Price was fine for a 1 1/4 trailer hitch. They put it on, but left off the plastic protector piece that was in the way. I emailed the manager and expressed surprise that a part that could potentially help protect the battery was left off. He was really nic...

Re: Can I charge a "Canadian" Soul EV directly with 220 volt outlet?

Did you ever try this? What was the result? Were you trying to use the included J1772 110v charger using a voltage converter?

SoulEVspy with 2021 Soul EV

I’m in Canada and trying to get the Konnwei 902 adaptor to work with the full version of Soul EVspy on a 2021 Kia Soul EV Limited. My Android tablet connects to the dongle, but when I look at the battery map it’s a bunch of grey boxes. Any troubleshooting ideas? Edit: I carefully re-followed all the...

Re: New owner! Kia Access/UVO Not Working

Thank you for the welcome! As for the price, I live in Washington DC, and it was USD. Unfortunately not CAD :) As for the 250k miles, that’s probably just a dream. But I’m gonna give it a go! Hoping my battery goes under 70% SOH at 8-9 years or 80-90k miles or so... My daily commute is currently ab...

Re: New owner! Kia Access/UVO Not Working

Hey all! First post, just bought a Certified Pre-Owned 2016 Soul EV Base with 19,550 mi on it. My first EV! Doing a bit of research, I discovered that the UVO and Kia Access stuff won’t likely work due allegedly to the phasing out of 3G. Came here to confirm that is indeed the case, and/or find a w...

Re: How is the health of this battery?

[...] Unless that is, you intend to regularly drive very far, and very fast, using multiple rapid DC c hargers. (Bjorn Nyland style!) As a regular viewer of his YouTube channel, this made laugh. Heh.

Re: Heat pump stopped working, no apparent cause

[...]So there we have it. There is nothing Kia service seems willing or able to do to fix this. I now have a vehicle with an inoperative heat pump, which is consuming far more power than it should for heating (killing range in the process). The only positive is that the second dealer did not charge...

Re: Import of used Soul EVs to Jordan

[...] But I can tell that the weather here is optimal for this car. I can see that the range I experience is higher than the one reported by the users in USA. On average I can travel 180 - 200 km (110 - 125 miles) in one charge. I guess weather and the topography of my city are the main reasons to ...
