Yup there is, it's always in option and came installed on my first HEV.! (did not ask for it, it came with the car hahaha)As I understand it, there is a built in capacity for a block heater on the Niro. Doesn't do a lot for the battery of course, other than slighter faster indirect warming via faster cabin heating.
Did the same with the PHEV, second fuel up after a 780km for 3½ weeks. but did not as much recharge this time because i could of gone like the first one in December with a 1700km.Did my next fuel up and it hasn't been too bad really. We were not nearly as cold as Manitoba but have had some weeks that were getting close. My last fillup worked out to 6.5L/100 and the actual is the same as what is displayed on my dash, so I can't complain. Will say it was a good investment to get the Niro.
Yes, 3x and its still in the dealership till now because they cant duplicate the probpem and cant fix it. They said that tje vehicle is starting since it was towed there 3 weeks ago.I don't have a Niro yet, but my c max energi EV range dropped from 20 miles to 9 miles and the software forced the engine on for maintenance quite a bit.
I am looking to get a Niro EV when it's available in the area, but it concerns me that you had yours towed 3x. My car is always parked outside on the driveway. My wife's c max energi gets the garage.
We live 150 miles from Winnipeg in Minnesota.
That is starting too be long.! what does Kia Canada (not the dealer) has too say about this issue ?Yes, 3x and its still in the dealership till now because they cant duplicate the probpem and cant fix it. They said that tje vehicle is starting since it was towed there 3 weeks ago.
Ottawa - yup been cold not sure how we compare to Winnipeg .. and lots of snow this week. No problem starting (and we had some bitterly cold days as well last year). But this polar vortex the past week gave me the worst fuel economy rating in 1.5 years .. 9/2 l/100kms. But this is Canada .. and this is winter ..
