About Kia Soul EV

The Kia Soul EV is an all-electric five-door subcompact SUV manufactured by Kia Motors. The vehicle was unveiled at the 2014 Chicago Auto Show. The Soul EV is based on the second generation Kia Soul. European sales began in July 2014. Sales started in the U.S. in October 2014. For model year 2018, Kia announced a small battery upgrade by 11% by adding 8 cells to the pack.
Kia designed a smooth electric motor for quiet efficiency and engineered a state-of-the-art regenerative braking system that helps recharge the battery. The result is satisfying EV performance with maximized range and assured handling. The Soul EV’s unique, multi-layer magnet design electric motor provides quiet, smooth-power performance. And its lightweight design helps deliver swift acceleration for an exciting and efficient drive.
The Traction Control System (TCS) helps avoid wheel spin when you accelerate, while Electronic Stability Control (ESC) helps to stay on course with improved stability. Vehicle Stability Management (VSM) offers increased steering control when driving in harsh road conditions, and Hill-Start Assist Control (HAC) helps keep the vehicle in place as move off an incline. Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) helps deliver more consistent braking as weight load and distribution change. The Antilock Braking System (ABS) helps reduce skidding, and the Brake Assist System (BAS) senses emergency braking situations and increases braking when needed. The Soul EV’s Tire-Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) continuously monitors the inflation pressure in all four tires.
Crafted for standout style, Kia Soul EV features blue-accented Projector Beam Headlamps and LED Rear Combination Lamps for stunning visibility. Kia wrapped exclusive aerodynamic wheels with Super Low Rolling Resistance (SLRR) Tires to help improve efficiency and range, giving new meaning to modern style.
The Soul EV provides exceptional comfort and maximum flexibility. The Soul EV’s split-folding rear seats offer ample cargo space and a variety of storage options. And the under-floor battery means plenty of interior space for passengers. From the exclusive bio-sourced materials and available leather seating all the way down to the distinctive highlight stitching—this modern interior looks, feels, and does good.
With three ways to charge, including standard DC Fast Charging, it is possible to recharge at home, office, and any public station. The 6.6 kW onboard charger maximizes throughput for faster charging. And the ultra-dense battery features more energy in an efficient package, for more driving range and cabin room.
