I haven't noticed any change in my '18 plug in. EV acceleration still seems about the same and my battery range hasn't degraded at all. Still seems pretty peppy given the relatively puny electric motor in the Kia.I have a 2018 PHEV. I am noticing that the EV torque/acceleration I used to get when I first had the car now seems less. Is this actually happening to older cars in EV mode or I am just used to it?
On the contrary, there is an instrument sensor to measure that, it's called an accelerometer. Accelerometers can be used to measure vehicle acceleration.Mine has 17K miles. I noticed because when I used to accelerate to get on a highway, I was able to do so on 100% EV but now, the gas engine kicks in as well. I spoke to a mechanic at the dealer today and he says there's really no test to measure that and the battery seems fine.
