Hello guys,

I have the car since October last year and this is the third time when I attempt to reach 300 km.
I charge it to 100% once every month like the manual says.

I have my commute around 95 km every day, in a mountain area, only hilly curvy rural roads...
I charge it with 6 kWh at work most of the time, I visited the fast chargers less than 10 times so far.

My question to you guys, there is anyone who passed the 186.5 miles / 300 km mark?

Mainly depends how fast you drive. I reckon I could get to 150 miles fairly easily as I did 100 the other day and had 45 indicated in the GOM. So had I been doing say 30mph instead of mostly 50mph the whole way 180 or so would be feasible.
Currently my meter is indicating 4.6 miles/kWh which implies 138 miles for my normal driving style on local roads.

Definitely seems 158 miles is the max it will allow on the GOM. a few months back I was doing 159 miles with 11% left in the battery so I would think it's unlikely but possible.

IIRC I got 169 miles with 10% remaining in the first few months I had the car. Not tried again, but occasionally get 90's of miles at 50%.

It is odd in that for other EVs maxing out the range was always a struggle, but for Soul it seems that it either does it quite easily, or is way off the mark. I got 95 miles at 52% remaining a week back and really wasn't trying. Next week was 'only' 75 miles with 50% remaining.
