State of Charge (SOC) gauge for high voltage battery

The SOC gauge shows the charging status of the high voltage battery.

The low percentage number on the indicator indicates that there is a limited amount of driving range in the high voltage battery. 100% indicates that the driving battery is fully charged.

When driving on highways or motorways, make sure to check in advance if the driving battery is charged enough.

When the remaining battery is lower than 10% on the SOC gauge, the warning light () turns ON to alert you of the battery level.

When the warning light () turns ON, the vehicle can drive approximately an additional 18~25 miles (30~40 km) depending on the driving speed, heater/air conditioner, weather, driving style, and other factors. Charging is required.


When the high voltage battery range is 25~30 miles (40~50 km), the vehicle speed is limited, and then eventually the vehicle will turn OFF. Charge the vehicle immediately.
