Prolonging your battery’s life with coolant fluid

The life of your Kia’s HV (high-voltage) battery depends very much on how well it is maintained. Proper care will help to extend its lifetime and optimise its performance. Essential maintenance involves replacement of the low-conductivity coolant periodically. This coolant is specially formulated to dissipate heat from the battery, in order to help it perform better and last longer. Replacement according to the maintenance schedule will help prolong the life of your Kia's high-voltage battery.
