Don't know if you have heard of the Greenrace site but it helps with planning distance and elevation for various EV's including the Soul. Web address below.
not sure how i missed your post earlier, excellent website, exactly what i need to predict if i can make those hilly trips, also interesting to compare the efficiency between different EVs, for example, Model S would use 25% more kWh than SoulEV on the same 35km trip with 600m elevation gain.

thanks for the link.

A day trip to Skookumchuck Narrows

Took the first sailing (7:25am) from Horseshoe Bay to Langdale.
Vancouver to Horseshoe Bay ferry terminal + Langdale ferry terminal to Egmont Heritage Centre = 120KM
Arriving at the Egmont Heritage Centre (EV charging, washrooms, museum) with 40% battery SOC.


The trail to Roland Point View Area is about 1 hour (4km)


check for Current Table



The SoulEV was fully charged when I returned to Egmont Hertiage Centre, ready to head back to Langdale ferry terminal



Went to Joffre Lakes on the weekend in my MY19 Soul EV, temperature was in the mid-teens so no need for HVAC (just the fan).

First stop at Whistler Conference Centre for a QC (130km),
then drove to Joffre Lake trailhead, back to Whistler Conference Centre (a round trip of 122km)
QC to 85% before heading home.
