    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...

    Hi, Just wondering if there's any Soul 27 owners that know if the car still only charges to 84% on a rapid charger? I know the 30kWh version charges to 94% but has there been any updates to allow the 27 to do this also or do cars with the latest service updates only charge to 84%? Cheers
  3. Kia Soul EV
    I've read on here of people updating the infotainment system with the latest maps and also to be able to run Android Auto on the earlier cars, does anyone have any experience of doing this or links to any guides / downloads or is it best to get this done at a Kia dealer? Cheers

    Hi, I'm looking at a 2015 27kWh Soul, I've noticed that it had 3 x new tyres (Joyroad HP RX3 -budget tyre?) But they other the is still a Nexen on the offside front. My question is, are only specific types classed as 'Low rolling resistance' and how much affect would fitting these make in terms...
  5. Kia Soul EV
    Hi, I'm looking at a 2015 27kWh Soul with 45k miles on the clock. I'm just wondering what peoples experience is with battery degradation with these cars, I was assuming that it wasn't nearly as bad as the Leaf but I've seen a few users on here mention a SOH around 91%. I think I may have to get...

    In my last video I showed you how you could save money by replacing the rubber portion of the wiper blades on your EV (also applies to ICE vehicles). In this part 2 of 2 video I show you how you can breathe cleaner air in your car by replacing the cabin filter once per year, yourself, and save...

    Electric cars require very little maintenance as compared to gas cars, but did you know that you can save money by doing two really simple things yourself, at home, and have less of an impact on the environment? My Kia Niro EV, or e-Niro in Europe, makes it easy for me to show you how to replace...
  8. Kia Soul EV
    Hi, I've been looking at getting my first EV, after initially looking at the Leaf 30kwh I tried a Soul EV 27kwh at the weekend and was very impressed. The car was a 2017 27kwh with 40k on the clock for £12,500, condition was good and on a 15 mile typical journey I was getting 5.2 miles / kwh...

    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...

    Hi folks Anyone know any dealers in Scotland who have a Soul EV available in Scotland to see/drive? The lease deals coming out of Drive Electric are v tempting but I can't commit without driving one first. Have tried Parks but no joy at any of the branches. Thanks, John
  12. 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. There are around 400 Sumatran Tigers in the wild and they are critically endangered. I reckon the Soul is damn fine EV so why so few sold...

    Hi All, Yes I have read all the current forum content on Kia Soul EV OBC, but I am just after any thoughts. For the last two weeks, since we had the lovely hot weather, I can't seem to charge reliably on a 32A connection be it at home or out, it flashes up with a ridiculous time remaining like...
