Hello everyone,

I apologize in advance as I am fairly new owner of a 2016 Kia Soul EV and new to this forum.

I bought an used 2016 Kia Soul EV in October of 2019. At that time I was getting about 140km range per charge. Come April of 2020 my range dropped down to 110km. I brought it in to Kia under warranty and they did an update on the car and at its peak in August I was up to 164km. As of now, my range displayed is 97km. I live in Langley BC Canada and the coldest temperature we get here is usually around 5 degree Celsius.

I took it back into warranty and they kept telling me my battery SOH is within the limit. Is there a reason for a huge drop on my range? Should I get a 2nd opinion from another dealership. I barely can get a return trip to my work these days without low battery warnings.

I am sure there are forums possibly on this issue but I don't have time to search. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you everyone.
It's cold, wait until summer and do some long trips, then reassess.
