More details of the new UVO Connect for the new 64kWh Soul EV in Europe. - Kia Press Release : - All-electric Kia e-Soul to make European debut
...The system uses its own SIM card to retrieve and update live data during a drive, such as live traffic information, weather forecasts, points of interest, and details of potential on- and off-street parking – including price, location and parking availability. Crucially, the UVO system also shows drivers charging station locations, c harger availability, and connection compatibility...

In Korea the SIM card is SK Telecom.
In USA the SIM card is Verizon.
Can someone confirm what network is used in Canada.

In Europe existing cars do not have a SIM card.
From next year they will be using Vodafone.

Hyundai and Kia Partner with Vodafone to Provide Connected Car Services in Europe

If the Soul EV uses 2G, then it uses Rogers as no other network offers 2G service in Canada.

Can anyone confirm which years of the Soul EV are 2G-only? Vs. 2G/3G? Vs. LTE?

If 2G, then we need to be aware that Rogers has begun a phased shut-down of their 2G network (starting June 2021). Though it may take many months (or even years) to complete, a growing number of areas won't have 2G service as time goes on.
