I have a new Niro EV, car been in our garage for 2 days not used but mileage has gone down, was 214 now 211.
Has anyone had this issue?
Surely this can not be right.

Is it perhaps related to the cold weather reducing battery capacity plus the low power consumed by the car remaining in contact with the KIA Connect server or any other device in the car that remains live

Almost any rechargeable battery loses some charge on standing. With a car being outside, exposed to cold, and depending on your locality, a wind chill as it blows under your car, a loss of a mile or two is not unreasonable. Also check the app for any accidental setting of heated seats/screen. My wife mistook the fan symbol in the app for a refresh symbol, and was repeatedly turning the air con on to 23C.
Soon found out where to turn that floating symbol off!
