I don't often let my battery get below 30 percent and don't often check my range so I thought I would do a 'how accurate is the GOM' test cold weather mid 20s to low 40s during test Only driver last month, predictable use 38 degrees F 222 miles estimated range at start 100 percent 37 degrees F 24 miles estimated range at end 12 percent 174 miles driven So 11 percent low. GOM and odometer tracked almost perfectly except the one cold day where it was much colder Pretty sure absent that one... GOM check ..read more

EV APP FOR BATTERY HEALTH AND REAL RANGE

We're looking for some more EV enthusiasts to try out our EV Health and Range Validation app. It's important that when buying second-hand EVs, people know exactly what range they're going to get, we can't rely on the GOM to do this for us, nor can we rely on WLTP. ClearWatt has developed an app that uses telematics to record 3 drives, collecting driving style and environmental factors to understand exactly how your car is performing. It’s super easy to get involved with the BETA, just head... EV APP FOR BATTERY HEALTH AND REAL RANGE ..read more

Hi just trying to get a feel for how other Kia dealers deal with warranty. 2020 Kia E Niro. My apple car play disconnects and connects. Problem because if I’m using it for navigation and I’m in traffic I can lose my route. If I’m updating the software and it disconnects this could cause the unit to be bricked. I have: 1) cleaned the port on my iphone. 2) Tried 3 different cables, the last one a brand new apple cable. 3) Tried 3 different iphones. 4) Had phone forget connection then...

I have a 2020 Niro EV EX (halogen bulbs) for brake lights. I want to switch them to LED but the first one I tried, would throw a burnt brake light error. Anyone try a LED bulb that doesn't cause this issue? The one I tried only had a max wattage of 3W. Not sure how high it needs to be to not throw the code ..read more

Hello, I have a 2019 Niro EV (SX Touring) with just under 80,000 KMs. My daily commute is mostly highway, 130 KMs round trip. Over the last 6 weeks my car has been briefly going into Power Limited mode during my drives (displays on screen with the turtle, I lose all power, then the message clears after 10 - 15 seconds and my power is restored and back to normal. Sometimes it happens once, sometimes it happens 3 times in a 1 hour drive. One drive it did it 10 times in less than an hour,... Frequent / Intermittent "Power Limited" Behavior ..read more

Using chains on Niro EV

I need to get some chains (traction cables more specifically) for an uocoming trip to the mountains and checked the user manual to see what it had to say. And the main instruction it gave was that “tire chains, if necessary, should be installed on the rear wheels.” On a car that is only available with front wheel drive? I’m thinking this must be another users manual error, which wouldn’t be the first I’ve tripped across. Do folks agree they need to go on the drive wheels? Sent from my...

Leasing versus purchasing in 2023
Inside EVS Forum » Kia Niro
by Raleigh Ron
2M ago
Has anyone figured out if leasing or buying a Niro EV (either 2023 or 2024 model that you plant to keep, say, 3 years) is a better deal? I've heard if you lease, you should get $7500 tax credit off the price of the car (along with any other dealer incentives you can negotiate), so that's a plus for leasing, but most Kia dealers websites don't mention the $7500 credit ..read more
