Re: Green License Plate for 2016 Soul EV in Ontario

My dealer had the AC tax on the purchase agreement but I printed out a copy of the law and they removed it. The law is X3-1 available online http://www.cra-arc.gc.ca/E/pub/et/x3-1/x3-1-e.html and you want to highlight paragraph 17 if you have problems with the dealer. 17. The excise tax on air condi...

Re: Panoramic Roof?

Yes, it is part of the 'Sun & Fun' package which is an upgrade over the Luxury trim level. The 'Sun & Fun' package is only available in the Titanium colour and includes the light up speakers and sunroof.

Re: Canadian availability of the Soul EV

I'm seeing a lot of people getting their Soul EVs lately (including myself picking up tonight) and I think I know why. While I was at the dealership this week doing the paperwork for mine, a transporter came in (Sorentos rather than Soul EVs) and I overheard the driver and some of the sales staff ch...

I ordered the same from the same dealer in mid-April. Haven't been told anything about it yet just a vague "should be July" when I called them a couple of weeks ago. I left a message yesterday asking if they have any more details as it is now July and they haven't returned my call yet.

Re: Soul triggering breaker and pulling too much juice
