Re: Questions about range and speed

Where in the world are you? A cold winter day in Florida is different from a cold winter day here in Ottawa. I think you'll be fine on range, particularly if she can plug it in at work or while out shopping, but a cold day with slush and winter tyres may be pushing it. Speed is fine, but the faster ...

Re: Portable Level 2 Charger

Depends what you mean by portable. There are plenty of EVSEs around that plug in to a NEMA 14-50 socket.

Re: Soul Spy?

Bad news on the TPMS. I only got to spend a few minutes with the car parked but I can confirm that those 0x37's in the sheet are not pressures. I have the same 0x37's and my TPMS sensors are showing slightly different pressures and temperatures and none of them are anywhere near 37psi, mine were 34....

Re: New owner thank you and questions...

I wonder if they didn't do the presales inspection properly and the covers are still where ever Kia ships them in the car. Presumably you have checked the glove box. How about in the trunk? Have you pulled everything out of the trunk including the flat floor, the tray and the compressor/fix-a-flat c...

Re: Soul Spy?

I've got an Ateq VT30 to read sensor ids, temperatures and pressures. Unfortunately there was a mix up with my order for winter tyres and they left out the sensors. That's all getting rectified on Tuesday so if I get some time Tuesday night I'll dig in to the TPMS a bit more.

Re: Winter in Toronto

The heat pump is an A/C system that can run in reverse to pump heat from the coolant in to the cabin or run normally to pump heat out of the cabin. In addition to the heat pump there is also a normal electric heater as well. The Soul EV has a moisture sensor at the top of the windscreen behind the m...

Re: Green License Plate for 2016 Soul EV in Ontario

I wouldn't do it through the dealer, just go to a Service Ontario place near you and do it yourself. Take a screwdriver with you to swap the plates and a note of the codes from my post above to help the staff there if they don't do many EVs.

Re: Floor mats?

You can get the Lloyds mats in Canada from http://www.musclecarsandclassics.ca/llo ... floor-mats

Ironic that a muscle car store supplies mats for an EV :)

I ordered mine last week, haven't shipped yet but they say about 2 weeks for shipping.
