120 City / 92 Highway
Automotive Editor -

The Kia Soul EV is yet another contender in the we-had-to-because-California-made-us class of electric vehicles. But as far as these cars created to meet zero-emissions regulations in various states go, the Soul EV is an effective transformation of the popular tall hatchback -- and one that may give EV doubters something to think about.

What's New for 2016

For 2016, the Soul EV gets a new base trim called the EV-e, which starts at $31,950 before state and federal tax incentives. Available only in California, it's aimed mostly at fleet buyers.

The Plus trim level gets a Sun & Fun Package, which bundles a panoramic sunroof and the Soul's trademark LED interior lighting that adapts to whatever music you're listening to.

Choosing your Kia Soul EV

The Soul EV uses a 109-horsepower electric motor powered by a 27-kWh lithium-ion battery, with a substantial 210 pound-feet of torque. Kia says the range on a full charge is 93 miles.

Fuel economy is rated at 105 MPGe according to the EPA, and a 240-volt outlet will charge the battery from flat in about five hours.

The Soul EV is only for sale at select Kia dealers in California, Oregon, New York, New Jersey and Maryland.


The EV-e includes all of the basic amenities common on the Soul, such as power windows, locks and mirrors, 16-inch wheels, height-adjustable driver's seat and a six-speaker audio system with USB/AUX inputs and Bluetooth. Also included is keyless entry and start, DC fast charger, heated front seats and a heated leather-wrapped steering wheel. There are no factory options.


The formerly base Soul EV adds a few features over the EV-e, starting with an 8-inch touchscreen navigation system with Kia's UVO telematics system that also lets you search for charging stations and check the car's battery level through a smartphone app. A backup camera is also standard.


The top Soul EV gets luxuries such as ventilated front passenger seats, heated rear seats, leather upholstery, front and rear parking sensors and power folding mirrors. The available Sun & Fun Package adds a panoramic sunroof and LED interior lighting.

CarsDirect Tip

It's probably worth skipping the EV-e model to get a good amount of creature comforts in the Soul EV. Depending where you live, consider leasing one over buying one, as the incentives tend to lower the cost of ownership significantly if you go for a 36-month plan.
