Viofo T130 Triple Dashcam for my Kia EV6

Viofo T130 Triple Dashcam for my Kia EV6

Unlike a Tesla the Kia EV6 cannot use the cameras like a dashcam so I got a triple camera set up from Viofo with all the available accessories to solve the problem. In my Niro EV I had bought and installed the A129 Duo from Viofo, but in my EV6 I am using the Viofo T130 three channel 2K unit. Is it any good? What is a 3 channel dashcam? How is the video quality? Watch this video for the unboxing, review, and video samples for all the details. FULL DISCLOSURE: I received the camera kit for free. EDIT 2022-09-19: I received a request from a viewer to find out what the power draw is in parking mode. Below is the information that I received from Viofo. Based on this info I will stick with Low Bitrate as I have been using since having my A129 Duo and now the T130.

Kia EV6 Vehicle to Load Tested & Explained

Kia EV6 Vehicle to Load Tested & Explained

I tested the Kia EV6 Vehicle-to-Load (aka V2L) with several appliances and electronic devices. What happens if you exceed the power limit? How do you reset the V2L and AC outlet? Can you use the V2L port at the same time as the interior 110V AC outlet? All of these things and more are shown in this video and should also apply to the Hyundai Ioniq 5 V2L feature since they are essentially the same, technologically speaking. ***IMPORTANT NOTE: When I mention buying the V2L adapter on the Kia and Hyundai Canada Website, I meant at the dealership. Prices mentioned were based on Facebook posts from people in Canada who bought the Hyundai V2L adapter at a dealership. Also to note, you should call multiple dealers because some say it is not stock, but others have the adapter in inventory; this is also based on some user anecdotes. ===== EV-olution Links ===== ** EV-olution T-Shirts: https://www.ev-olution.ca/shop ** If you feel like buying me a coffee... https://ko-fi.com/ev_olution My Web site: https://www.ev-olution.ca/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/ev_olution_inevitable Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/evolutioninevitible/ ======================== CREDITS: Subscribe Button by MrNumber112 https://youtu.be/Fps5vWgKdl0 00:00 Intro 00:27 V2L Included… Sort of 01:02 Where is it stored? 01:39 Make V2L work 03:02 Hair dryer test 03:12 Kettle test 04:02 Nespresso & milk frother test 05:15 Four slice toaster test 06:12 Toaster and Kettle test 07:07 How to reset the V2L 07:44 Toaster and Nespresso test 08:48 Charge a Soul EV from the EV6 10:07 Outdoor home theatre 11:07 An extra 110V outlet 12:58 Nespresso on V2L and Frother inside the EV6 14:40 Limit the V2L power drain 15:30 What I discovered 17:19 What is the power limit? 17:55 V2L adapter detail 18:35 How many subscribers?!?! 19:23 Bloopers

EQ Episode 007 - Montréal EV Show Hummer EV!

What was at the 2022 Montréal Electric Vehicle show? The Hummer EV, Cadillac Lyric, Ford F150 Lightning, BMW iX, Subaru Solterra, and much more. You could even test drive many electric vehicles, including the BMW iX, Kia EV6, Hyundai Ioniq 5, Polestar 2, Jaguar iPace, Audi eTron, and more. If you want a quick tour and look at some of these cars, then you may want to watch this video. I hope you like it. ***UPDATE: I made a mistake in the audio of the video. It was pointed out that the Hummer EV has a battery pack larger than 200kWh. This makes things even worse.*** =================== EV-olution Links =================== ** EV-olution T-Shirts: https://www.ev-olution.ca/shop ** If you feel like buying me a coffee... https://ko-fi.com/ev_olution EV-olution Website: https://www.ev-olution.ca/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/ev_olution_inevitable Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/evolutioninevitible/ ==================================================== CREDITS: Subscribe Button by MrNumber112 https://youtu.be/Fps5vWgKdl0 Music: Megaepic by Alexander Nakarada (www.serpentsoundstudios.com) Licensed under Creative Commons BY Attribution 4.0 License https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/ 00:00 Intro 00:16 GM Booth Cadillac Lyriq 01:06 GMC Booth Hummer EV 01:33 Ford F150 Lightning 01:48 Toyota bZ4x 02:09 Kia EV6 02:21 Polestar 02:45 Subaru Solterra 03:11 Volvo C40 and XC40 Recharge 03:30 BMW iX 03:57 AVEQ EV Test Drives 04:24 Entering the Big O with my EV6 05:01 Not only cars and trucks 05:19 Ford E-Transit 05:25 Imperium SEV 05:50 Circuit Électrique 06:13 T-Shirts and more 07:15 Bloopers

Kia EV6… What’s improved over the Niro EV?

The Kia EV6 is an amazing car, but what has Kia learnt from having made the Niro EV four years ago? Have they listened to owners and corrected some annoyances? Has Kia thought of ways to improve on daily use things that we have not? I owned a 2019 Kia Niro EV for almost 3 years but sold it to buy this top trim 2022 AWD Kia EV6 GT-Line Pack 2. It is one of about 100 units in Canada at the time of recording this video, and I explain the things that I think are improvements over the Niro EV, as well as how it drives as compared to the Niro EV. This is the first of several videos I will be making related to the Kia EV6. ===== EV-olution Links ===== ** EV-olution T-Shirts: https://www.ev-olution.ca/shop ** If you feel like buying me a coffee... https://ko-fi.com/ev_olution My Web site: https://www.ev-olution.ca/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/ev_olution_inevitable Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/evolutioninevitible/ ======================== CREDITS: Subscribe Button by MrNumber112 https://youtu.be/Fps5vWgKdl0 00:00 Intro 00:24 Goodbye Niro EV 01:48 Passenger side.

EQ 005 - Guinness World Record EV Parade

The previous world record for the largest parade of electric cars was 402. On October 24th, 2021 we set a new world record in St-Hyacinthe, in the province of Québec, and blew away the original number with a grand total of 733 pure electric cars! I was not supposed to make a video about the event, but once on site I could not resist so I pulled out my cell phone and saved some dashcam footage to throw this quick video together. I hope you enjoy it, I had lots of fun taking part in this epic event. ===== EV-olution Links ===== If you feel like buying me a coffee... https://ko-fi.com/ev_olution ** NEW EV-olution T-Shirts: https://www.ev-olution.ca/shop ** Web site: https://www.ev-olution.ca/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/ev_olution_inevitable Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/evolutioninevitible/ Our new world record in the news: - Gathering of 733 electric cars in Quebec breaks Guinness World Record (electricautonomy.ca) - Saint-Hyacinthe bat le record Guinness du plus gros rassemblement de véhicules électriques | TVA Nouvelles Québec EV Association (AVEQ): https://www.aveq.ca/ ======================== CREDITS: Subscribe Button by MrNumber112 https://youtu.be/Fps5vWgKdl0 Music by Joakim Karud: https://soundcloud.com/joakimkarud - Enjoy! - Lowrider 00:00 Intro and what it’s about 01:04 The EV lineup 01:48 The lineup starts the drive 04:38 I cross the finish line 05:04 Hundreds of EVs drive through 07:22 Grand total for the world record 07:37 Blooper… just one :-)

EQ 004 - Québec City EV Show & Test drive of the Imperium SEV

Québec City held their dedicated electric vehicle show on October 1st. I also got to test drive the Imperium Motors SEV all electric SUV! If you want to see what cars, accessories, bikes, and other stuff was there, as well as get a preview of the Imperium SEV, then this video is for you. I hope you enjoy it. The Imperium Motors SEV was previously named the ET5 but was changed due to issues with another vehicle that had that name. Oddly, in China Skywell renamed it to the EV6. I think Kia is going to have something to say about that. ***The audio was not the best since I did not have my dedicated mic on the show floor, so I apologize in advance. ===== EV-olution Links ===== If you feel like buying me a coffee... https://ko-fi.com/ev_olution ** NEW EV-olution T-Shirts: https://www.ev-olution.ca/shop ** Web site: https://www.ev-olution.ca/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/ev_olution_inevitable Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/evolutioninevitible/ Audi Q4 e-tron Canada: https://www.audi.ca/ca/web/en/models/q4/q4-e-tron.html Audi Q4 e-tron USA: https://www.audiusa.com/us/web/en/models/q4/q4-e-tron/2022/overview.html Imperium Motors: https://www.imperiummotorcompany.com/ Club Tesla Québec: https://www.clubteslaquebec.ca/ Québec EV Association (AVEQ): https://www.aveq.ca/ ======================== CREDITS: Subscribe Button by MrNumber112 https://youtu.be/Fps5vWgKdl0 Intro music: Sitcom Rock Sting by Alexander Nakarada (www.serpentsoundstudios.com) Licensed under Creative Commons BY Attribution 4.0 License https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/ 00:00 Intro 00:12 Québec City EV Show 00:27 Hyundai Booth 00:40 Polestar 00:51 Toyota disappointing… again 01:00 Ford 01:05 Mazda’s sad EV 01:34 Audi booth 01:59 Imperium Motors SEV SUV 02:43 Imperium SEV Test Drive! 04:57 Tesla Québec Club 05:15 Fast Wheels 05:37 Volvo 05:50 Porsche Québec 06:02 Kia Booth 06:17 Chevrolet 06:25 EV Test Drives by AVEQ 06:54 A bunch of other stuff & bikes 07:46 What is this? 08:23 Bloopers

Polestar 2 In-Depth Review

Everything you want to know about the Polestar 2 electric car in one video; from features, details, specs, options, and prices, to how it drives and handles. If you are considering the Polestar 2 then this video is for you. I was fortunate to have Polestar Canada lend me this car for one week and had a ton of fun driving the car, as well as learning how to make such a complex video. I hope you like it. *** UPDATE: I was told, by Polestar 2 owners that there actually is a trunk release button on the outside of the car. It is hidden under the edge where the license plate is. Not the most intuitive place to put a button, but it makes sense. I will mention it in my next video. Thanks to those who pointed it out. You can see a list of details that were in this video, below the links section, and as mentioned in the video you can find out more about the Android Automotive operating system once my second Polestar 2 video is ready. ===== EV-olution Links ===== If you feel like buying me a coffee... https://ko-fi.com/ev_olution ** NEW EV-olution T-Shirts: https://www.ev-olution.ca/shop ** Web site: https://www.ev-olution.ca/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/ev_olution_inevitable Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/evolutioninevitible/ Polestar Canada P2 Page: https://www.polestar.com/en-ca/polestar-2/ Polestar US P2 Page: https://www.polestar.com/us/polestar-2/ Air Woofer Technology. A link to the Premium Audio press release can be found here: https://media.polestar.com/us/en/media/pressreleases/500088 ======================== Air Woofer Technology: ------------------------------- I received details from Polestar about the “Air Woofer Technology”. It is part of the Harman Kardon Premium Audio 13-speaker sound system which is part of the optional Plus Pack. Many vehicles place the subwoofer under the seats or in the rear/trunk, as that was often the only place it could fit. Without a gas engine up front the Polestar 2 can utilize part of the space for the “Air Woofer Technology”. Similar to a subwoofer this area under the dash was specifically designed with the Harman Kardon sound system, adding additional audio depth and enhancing the overall audio experience.
