Kia e-niro EV in -40°!! Will it work?

Just when you think it can't get any colder. The day after the -35 test, it is -40! -40 is where both Celcius and Fahrenheit meet. So this is both -40°C and -40°F. Do you think it will start and drive? Because remember, the media and the petrolheads constantly tell us that EV's don't work in the cold? So it can't possibly start in -40, right?

    Minus 40 BUT his Kia was PLUGGED IN! That matters! What happens to his Lithium batteries when they drain dead empty in -40 and are left frozen for a day? In other words - left unplugged for a weekend? Plugged in the battery heater keeps the batteries alive and keeps them charged.

    Since I'm in central Canada, I have seen these temps. We had the same air mass last month (today its 10 and rainy, however). My gas vehicle has to warm up for a good 10 minutes before I'm comfortable driving it in those temps, so to be fair the EV works well in those temps. I'm a bit surprised you don't have gloves on, that's more dangerous than the temperature itself. LOL Thanks for showing.

    2 q, 1, why would it be dangerous to drive in -39? you know its getting cold like that every winter since beginning of time up in the north, and it had not stopped anyone. well of corse they have (like you have not..) clothes and gloves and stuff to get the car out of a ditch. 2, why would it not start, its an electric motor and it been plugged in.

    Hi Tony, greetings from Cumbria in the U.K. Kia make great cars that’s for sure. I’m actually considering the Kia eSoul for my next lease car. Have you driven one? I’d like to know you opinion. I know they are basically the same car. I’ve just subscribed. What tyres are you running please? Stay safe and well, and warm.

    Test it 1 day without preheat at -40 🤔

  • Adrian Iacob

    Being connected to the wall charger, very likely that some power was used to pre-heat the batteries, after charging cycle ended. Also could be (don't know for sure) a small blow heater behind LCD's in order to keep them at least reasonably responsive, very thoughtful of Kia engineers...

    Hiyah Tony, I've just found your channel and subscribed, very informative. Ive noticed you haven't the stock wheels and wondered why you've changed them, also what tyres have you got on? Last question is where is your accent from, it sounds very Warrington or similar? Cheers pal.

    • FinlandTony
      FinlandTony

      These are the winter wheels that come with e-niros in Scandinavia. The stock wheels will be going on in late March which have the summer tyres on. Looking forward to a slight range improvement then. The winter tyres are Nokian Hakkapeliitta 9 studded. They are just mega in the snow/ice. I'm originally from Runcorn, but have worked and spent a lot of time in and around Warrington, so your pretty bang on there mate. Most people say Wirral (which is pretty close too). No-one is saying Liverpool which is interesting, I guess I've lost my scouse twang that I used to have!

    Experienced -42 here in Canada. Most of our company trucks would not start. Those that did had some wheels frozen (bake pads) and transmission / differential oil created high resistance due to its viscosity. Impressive that the Niro functions at this temperature. Better than ICE vehicles

      I don’t think anyone believes that. It’s to late for saving the world from global warming we have passed that point and BEVs alone will make a difference on that problem. But BEVs in cities will save the lunges of a lot children and adults. Cancer allergy, asthma are serious issues caused buy smoking and ICE cars.

    Hi Tony, the colors on the bar on your energy consumption screen are weird - at 4:54. Mine has the smaller 7" screen and it shows the bar in the same colors as those percentages above: orange (drive), green (climate), blue (electronics), violet for battery care. This last one I've never seen go above 0%, and it's supposed to be the battery heating or cooling when needed. I guess the -10 celsius that we had here didn't trigger it.

    Tony those kinds of temperatures happen from time to time v in a lot of Canada. I live in Winnipeg a city of 800,000 . A couple of weeks ago our airport temp went down to _ 38.8 c and yet there were thousands of vehicle's driving around, numbers modified mostly by the pandemic. The vast majority of those cars are running on gas engines or petrol as Europeans say it , people here use block heaters as needed. My car is 19 kia niro hybrid and I plugged it in last winter twice just to be sure. But it's in an unheated garage and I haven't bothered this winter and its been fine. It is pretty creaky sounding at low temperatures though not as much as our previous ford focus.

    I've discovered the reduction gear uses 1 litre of 70w gear oil. This is a very viscous oil and in these temps will be very thick. I think this is the cause of the air raid siren. The noise goes away after 20 minutes when the oil has warmed up a little. I've also noticed the air raid siren doesn't appear until the temps get close to -20°C or colder. I have a motorbike (Triumph Bonneville Bobber) with straight cut gears and that whines too. So I think this is very probably the reduction gear making the whine.

      @FinlandTony I had commented earlier but deleted it because I wasn't sure. But I looked it up and I think I know how it works now. There's a video from Bjorn trying out the e-Niro in Norwegian winter: svsoft.info/award/i6Lal6V0ktnJ0pM/video.html. At the 10 minute mark you see that his ODBII says that battery temp is going up immediately after plugging in. There's another part where he mentions the heater. I believe it works only when charging and will stop when the battery reaches 10 degrees celsius or so. That would mean it would be better to use scheduled charging so your battery is relatively warm when you leave.

      Beats "any" fossil car? Please elaborate? Here I live (in Norway) temperatures like this happens some days every winter. Never any issues with fossil cars, my Kia Soul EV 2018 looses more than half its range when its around -40. Cheap fossil cars will have issues keeping the coupe hot in this temperatures, but that's about it.

    • Deuxiit
      Deuxiit

      Lots of people driving their fossil so at the same temps to work and back. Evs are good but I don't get the hype since we done this same stuff for decades with fossils every winter. The range drops half on evs with cold weather's and the charcing is slow because of the coldgating. We need to change to evs in time but the hype is just cringy since lots of evs owners complain alot about e niro and konas performance at cold winter. 12v and charge port freezing will leave you in dangerous trouble with -30c.

  • Barry PURKIS
    Barry PURKIS

    Nice video. Did you check the grade of oils in the transmission and other moving parts before this test. From a quick glance online it seems that -40F is the point where most oils stop flowing. Or does the Niro have a winter spec oil? A similar thought applies to the brake fluid, esp if it is somewhat old. Any water that has joined with it will be frozen in the pipelines and master cylinder. Here in warm Havant UK I actually had to defrost the screen five times this winter already!

    Hi has your e Niro a battery heater and if so have you seen it working. Mine should have one but I have never seen those temperatures here in the uk. THANK GOODNESS. The uk would of come to a complete standstill way before that temperature probably about -10. A great video it proves just how low cars can operate in. As you say you really wouldn’t want to be out walking in that for long. So to sum up I shouldn’t get any cold problems with our e Niro in the uk.

    • FinlandTony
      FinlandTony

      It does and I have seen it turned on one or twice. But that's about it. Kia really need to do major software revision on the battery heater because it's useless. The only issue you would have in UK is possibly ice/slush freezing the charge door shut. Here it is such dry cold, the snow doesn't stick to the car. So I have no issues with the charging door or anything.

      Just uploaded a new video with a consumption test in -34°C. In -40°C I would say 200km. Which is impressive. I think the noise is the reduction gear, because it uses 70w oil which will be almost solid in these temps until it has warmed up.

    Try leaving the car overnight without winter mode enabled and see if the temperature in the battery in the morning is colder as it may be doing something in the background. Also try putting the car into neatral for a little bit whilst driving and see if that affects the motor noise. Really interesting seeing how the e-niro performs in exteme cold even though my e-niro here in the UK will never see temperatures like that.

    • Richard Wood
      Richard Wood

      Neutral doesn't disengage anything mechanical. I suspect it's the transmission (reduction gear/final drive) making the noise. I hear a mild version of it, with more of a beat, at certain speeds and temperatures in ours, at any time of year. Presumably stiff oil + different clearances.

      Yep, winter mode is on. Battery care is pretty useless. Kia need to fix it.

    Why didn't you preheat the car since you had it plugged in? 🤷‍♂️

      The battery was preheated, and some leaked to the rest of the car, thats why it showed -34 instead of -39.

      @Hugo Fernandes I'm sure on any other day, he does. That was only for the video. I've done it also, just for video and the experience.

      @EWheeler Finland But could have preheated the inside of the car...just to be more confy 😊

      I believe he was making a point how easy it is in that temp. Preheating would have made it look too easy. EVs are much better cars in the cold than ICE

    Wauw why does the battery not warm itself up in this extreme temperature?!

      @FinlandTony The chargers in Karasjok and Tana bru is run by Ishavsveien. Ishavsveien is a joint venture between multiple power companies in the county of Troms and Finnmark. If you are coldgateing, Ishavsveien is the best option, it's the cheapest in Norway at speeds below 43kW (4,25kr/kWh). The next best is Circle K (4.49kr/kWh) (but the closest Circle K charger for you is Tromsø). Grønn Kontakt (now Mer) only have a few charges in Troms and Finnmark, well south of Alta.. But Ishavsveien is the only one that have good coverage in Finnmark. They are planning one i Hesseng, in case you want a trip to Russia...:-D

      @Michael Eric Menk Do you know what charge network those chargers are? I've got a Grøn kontakt rfid, would be easy if it was them.

      @FinlandTony I assumed it would cold gate, but it will charge safely. You will not damage the battery, as you were worried about in the last video. Some car manufactures use the battery heater to keep the battery from being damaged only, not to optimize charge speed... So you can still use it safely. But luckily for you, the fast chargers in Tana Bru and Karasjok charge per kWh, and not by the minute.

      @Michael Eric Menk Yes the e-niro coldgates like crazy. See my road trip videos through Finland. Still coldgates even after driving all day.

    Great that the E-Niro performs great in these cold conditions! We never get these temperatures in the Netherlands. Last week we had -14 degrees and life almost stopped here 😉. How did the I-pace perform at these temperatures?

    • FinlandTony

      I-Pace also performed faultlessly down to -37°C. It did give a 12v low battery warning for 10 mins until the traction battery charged it up enough. Ok the brakes didn't work too great for 10 mins while the 12v was low. But other than that, fine 🤣
