    I've been through all the screens and set up menus, to no avail. Am I missing it somewhere, or is it just not possible?

    I'm perplexed by the question. I guess this is Kia's way of trying to offer something equivalent to mpg. In Canada we use km, so our readout is kWh/100km. Silly me, but I just assumed you'd get the equivalent with miles. If Wh/mi isn't available and you can live with the quick math (100km = 62 mi), maybe kWh/100km might be an available option.
  4. I don't think they thought about people wanting to change that display. I'm unaware of such a setting in the Kona, thus is probably unavailable in it's brother.

    I know it's not what you're looking for, and forgive me if this is obvious to you, but you can get Whr/mi by dividing 1000 by the mi/kWhr shown on the screen. As an example 5 mi/kWhr is 1000 divided by 5 or 200 Whr/mi. I agree it would be nice if you could set the car to show this.

    Thanks all for your responses. I have decided that the slight scientific snobbishness regarding distance/fuel being less elegant than fuel/distance is not worth the extra mental calculations. ;)
