  3. I had my Soul since May 2018

    Ice Breakers
    I bought a Leaf in April 2017. Drove it for about a year, then bought a grey 2017 Soul EV. It is pretty good. I use it on trips at it being the equivalent of roughly a 33mpg car due to the use of fast chargers (my time is worth more than I pay to fuel these trips). There is a level 2 charger at...
  4. Does anyone have a real photo in platinum graphite?

    Kia Niro
    I can't seem to find a photo with adequate lighting that accurately shows the platinum graphite. Could anyone provide one? Thanks!
  5. Should I go for it? Is it worth it?

    Kia Niro
    Hey all, we test drove the e-niro on Sunday, and I must admit I'm in love. It is quite pricey for us though. Does anyone have advice on whether or not it is worth it? Someone on a leasing forum said my love affair with the car would be over in a week, but I don't think that's true. How are your...

  9. Does the UK spec e-Niro have Lane Follow Assist or just LKAS?

    Kia Niro
    The UK press release only mentions Lane Keep Assist (just bounces between the lane lines if the driver strays outside them) not Lane Follow Assist (auto steers smoothly in the middle of the lane). The Kona does have both and is advertised with both. I've test driven a Kona and it does work...

  13. UK pre-orders for the Niro

    Kia Niro
    I've not been able to find when Kia are going to start taking orders. I figure if we watch this thread, when someone discovers when and how to place orders, we'll hopefully be early in the queue.

  17. Critically Endangered?

    Kia Soul EV
    If I am interpreting it right the How Many Left? website reckons there are just 288 Soul EV's on the road in the whole UK right now with another 31 on SORN.
