    I don't know if anyone else has downloaded and installed the May update for the head unit, but I noticed that the date in the version file is the same as the last update we got in February (I was just about to do the update and noticed that in the car, so I restarted the download just to check...

  4. Kia Soul EV
    My Sep'20 Soul has developed knocking which seems to come from the rear suspension. It happens when going over bump, but also when braking and sometimes moving off. Anyone, have similar experience? The car is booked with the local dealer, but what bugs me was the statement that they will...
  5. General Kia EV Discussion
    Yesterday I had a strange experience with the Soul (or maybe I'm going bananas...). On a long trip, done about 90 miles in very reasonable 1h30min, I park at a services for longish wait. I'm certain I glanced at the SOC and that was reading 62%, which is very much in line with my expectations...

I purchased this can in November 2020 and it has easily been the best car I've owned. I looked at and tested a Leaf (24 & 30kWh) and the Renault Zoe, but as soon as I...
  10. General Kia EV Discussion
    Hi, I'm on the March update (I think) and yesterday I had to travel using the M6 Toll. I wanted to avoid it, so decided to change my settings and went looking for the option. It is commonly something like "avoid tolls", but it wasn't there anymore. I found "avoid vignetted roads", but it did...

    Hi there, new here and hoping for advice please. I'm getting a Kia eNiro 4+ in May with the Kia supplied 11kw 3 phase charger, but can't find any details about this charger.

    OK, I'm due to collect my first EV on Thursday (26th) and called my current insurer M & S, for my car (Ford C-Max 2.0 Titanium Diesel 2007) to get a price. I was assuming that they'd be able to give me a price and maybe have to pay a small fee to change the car over... no. The current...

  18. 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...
