First some background of the Kia Soul EV I own. I bought my car one year old with 10.000 km driven. It was one of the first demo Kia Soul EV cars on the market in the Netherlands (2014-08-26). I do not have any clue how the car was driven the first year and how the charging behavior has been. Currently there is 18709 km driven with this car (so I drove 8709 km in ~4 months). When I did the measurement below, it was 0 degrees Celsius outside temperature, the State of Charge shown was 57% and the shown range was 65 km (70 km without using climate control).

I was able to get the OBDII data with the free "alOBD terminal" android app in combination with my Konnwei KW902 Bluetooth dongle:

I looked into the Kia Soul EV Can Messages google doc (downloaded and saved, so I could add my data and compute the values):

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1YYlZ-IcTQlz-LzaYkHO-7a4SFM8QYs2BGNXiSU5_EwI/edit#gid=0Actually the worksheet tab BMC_Data describes 2101 and 2105.

Examples of Alex and Tyrell are in worksheet tab BMC_Compare

The BMC worksheet tab contains a description of the values and the multiply factor.

This is my data for 2101 in the same format as in BMC_Data:

This is my data for 2105 in the same format as in BMC_Data:

And computed the values myself in Excel:

Airbag H/wire Duty 80.00 %

Battery Heater 1 Temperature 0.00 °C

Max Deterioration 11.60 %

Max Deterioration Cell No 3.00

Min Deterioration 10.00 %

Min Deterioration Cell No 15.00

So it looks like the deterioration is already 11% with 18709 km driven. How does this compare with others?
