    Help. Made it home just in time. I had 100 mi when I started and traveling 47 mi. Then I noticed battery depleting quickly. I reduced my speed and prayed. Made it home and battery read 0%. It says I have 1 mi, but closest charging station is 2.5 mi away. How far can I go on “limited power”? Will...

    3 days after the start of a long roadtrip my A/C developed a grinding noise, like a constant hiss that you could even hear from outside the car. I took it to a dealership but they weren't able to look into it, I was short on time so I departed without having it fixed. Long story short, after 20...

    Here's an interesting one for ya'll that I was thinking about. Let's say I go to a restaurant and I'm there for ~90 minutes. I have my level 1 portable charger, park in the back, and hook up to an unused outdoor outlet at the base of the building. I have now added 10-20 miles to the range while...

    Hey gents, I got my EV6 Gt line in early March and I didn't notice this until this summer. my car won't blast cool air at all but only when I hear something running high RPM under the hood. I actually sweat inside the car when the car is not rolling and charging. Same thing with the lowest...

    Hi, I would like to see if there is anyone who has a similar experience as i have. Most of times, my car is silent while charging. I heard weird and also loud whining noise from the bonnet of my car when i was charging, two times. It hasn't reached even 80% of charge, and it hasn't plugged in...

    I wanted to create a post to detail DC fast charger specifications, performance, and experience. This is specific for the EV6 (and also other E-GMP cars) since no other Kia EV models can accept as high current at a high voltage. To start off with, I wanted to discuss the ChargePoint Express...

    Greetings, I have a ev6 showing up in a week and I’m looking at what level 2 options I have. I currently have a 4 prong nema 1430 30 amp dryer outlet in the garage. I also have an rv outlet outside that is 50 amp. Would it be easier to find a charger for the 30 amp in the garage or have a...

    Hello everyone, I'm new here to the forum as I've decided on the EV6 as my first full BEV. I've been following the EV community closely over the last 4 years and I have a few technical questions to ask current EV6 owners: Does anyone know the exact "charging current settings" (as a percentage...

    I have a Level 2 charger at home. A few times I've forgotten to plug in the car when I arrive home, and found myself in the middle of a local errand (the following day) with a critical level of power. A voiced notification/reminder to "recharge" from the car when you turn it off at home (ie. set...

    Hi all, I have a few semi-regular trips where my range doesn't quite make it when I am at an 80% charge. I'm trying to decide which would be better for the long-term health of the battery, charge to 100% on my level 2 charger at home or charge to 80% but then top off using a DC Fast charger...

    Just curious. I work in real estate development and residential construction in the US. I have been discussing the possibility of adding a dedicated 14-50 outlet in the garage of our new home construction units so they are EV ready. Then offering charger installation as an A la carte upgrade...

    Hi all, Just wondering if any UK or EU EV6 owners have tested charging their cars with a Tesla gen 2 universal mobile connector? The reason I specify Europe is because you use type 2 connector for all cars like we do in Australia. Unlike Tesla in the US that needs an adaptor. Which I believe...

    My RWD Ev6 is (red) apparently on the boat chugging along to Oz due mid Juneish. Would love recommendations for must watch or read in prep of my delivery. Also... I have been trying to work out the charging situation in preparation for delivery, as in what cords will come with it and what do i...

    I have an ~6 year old clipper creek EVSE (HCS-40p-30a-240v) plugged into a dedicated 30-amp circuit with a NEMA 14-50 plug. With my old Bolt EV it would easily charge from empty (empty-ish -- 15%-20%) overnight. But with my new EV6 it’s maxing out at 3.3kw or so and took over 15 hours to go from...

    Hey guys I just got my EV6 and we’ll so upset about no charging cable is included on a 50 grand car. Oh well. Anyways in the app it says to use a 240V level 2 charger for the battery. I just got a basic 120V 16amp since I would need an electrician for the prior support. Will charging this slow...

    Is anyone aware of a hybrid or smart charger solution that will allow your solar panels to charge your car during the day with excess solar power? My apologies if this was covered in another thread but I thought I saw reference to a way to better leverage your solar power than pumping it into...

    Hi, I'm new to Kia and EV's. My car came last week midday, as I was on nights I plugged it in to my Project EV charger. Turned the charger on and asked the car to charge via the app with no issues. It did a couple of hours and all was great. The last two days I have parked the car, handbrake on...

    Hi all, I'm from Belgium, expecting my EV6 in (hopefully) a couple of months. To prepare, I've probably read the online user manual 5 times already and have 2 questions current owners might be able to help me with. I have the chance to have fast chargers really nearby but read in the manual...

    So I did a 300 mile round trip to Worcester from SE London yesterday. Car was awesome. Warm, easy to drive, great with Android Auto/maps/podcasts. Fully charged before left so started 100%. 145 miles to destination and arrived with 45% battery with carscanner showing used 47kWh. So a bit of...
