Vehicle Type: KN
The Kia e-Niro vehicle support will be documented here.
|Hardware||Any OVMS v3 (or later) module|
|Vehicle Cable||9658635 Kia OBD-II to DB9 Data Cable for OVMS|
|GSM Antenna||1000500 Open Vehicles OVMS GSM Antenna (or any compatible antenna)|
|GPS Antenna||1020200 Universal GPS Antenna (SMA Connector) (or any compatible antenna)|
|Range Display||Yes (based on consumption of past 20 trips longer than 1km)|
|Speed Display||Not currently supported|
|BMS v+t Display||Yes|
|Charge Status Display||Yes|
|Charge Interruption Alerts||Yes|
|Charge Control||Not currently supported|
|Cabin Pre-heat/cool Control||Not currently supported|

The Kia e-Niro have one CAN-bus available on the OBD-II port: D-can. You can use the standard OBD-II to DB9 cable from Fasttech.
In case you want to build your own cable, here’s the pinout:
|4||3||Chassis / Power GND|
|6||7||CAN-0H (C-can High)|
|14||2||CAN-0L (C-can Low)|
|16||9||+12V Vehicle Power|
A simple approach is to buy an OBDII (J1962-M) pigtail, and solder the DB9-F connector end appropriately.
TODO. Configuration is quite similar to the Kia Soul, so please check that out. Please use the Web based configuration!
Currently, there is no known way to get the estimated range directly from the car, so the estimated range is calculated by looking at the consumption from the last 20 trips that are longer than 1 km.
12V battery drain¶
OVMS will eventually drain the 12V battery, but steps have been taken to minimize the drain. However, if you are going to leave the car for a fews days, it is recommended to unplug OVMS. OVMS will send an alert if 12V drops under 12V alert threshold. See 12V Calibration section.
