Hey!, how is the first Canadian PHEV owner doing?
The info that i have about the Canadian ans US PHEV is 42Km (26 miles in the US) top charge.!
So, for the 50km and + range... i did see it in some euro videos, but i do not beleive it apply's to us here.!
(i can be wrong, but i got the info on the Kia Niro USA info. Nothing is available for Canadian user...
All good; I hope you're enjoying your car as well!
Have yet to use an entire tank of gasoline, even though I've put on 1600km or so (1000 miles).
No issues other than the range indicator, and the UVO not working.
I tried what people here suggested, and they were right. The range, fully charged today at a L2 mall charger, showed 41km. I killed anything climate related and turned the Niro on. It stayed at 41km. The second I switched the fan on low, in any mode, it would drop to 38km. Killing the fan brought it back to 41km.
Interestingly, the seat cooler did not diminish range.
I plan to document a hypermile attempt in the near future. Must find a clear and flat course near a charger, and a day without rain to make it happen.
My driving style is usually around 85% eco, 15% normal and 0% aggressive. Should be fun to see how far that car can go at 40km/h on a full charge (just doing the electric part of the test).
Thanks for the help all!
