2015 Kia Soul EV Overview

Automotive Editor - November 3, 2014

Kia's Soul tall hatchback is popular with younger folks and the environmentally conscious, and possesses a certain hipster appeal. That makes it the perfect home for an all-electric power plant, which is exactly what you get with the new Soul EV.

What's New For 2015

The Soul EV is an all-new model based on the standard Soul, which was redesigned last year.

Choosing Your Kia Soul EV

The Soul EV dispenses with gasoline altogether in favor of a 109-horsepower electric motor powered by a 27-kilowatt-hour lithium ion battery. While the EV is a tick slower than the gasoline version, you won't notice much of a difference in around-town driving thanks to a generous 210 pound-feet of torque. On a full charge, you're good to go for up to 92 miles, which is slightly above average for a mainstream EV.

You can expect about 92 mpge (miles per gallon equivalent) on the highway and a stellar 120 mpge in the city. On a 240-volt outlet or charging station, a depleted battery reaches full charge in about five hours. You can also use a standard 120-volt household outlet, but charging will take closer to eight hours. Top speed is about 90 mph, which is typical for an EV.

For visual differentiation, the Soul EV gets a unique grille, your choice of two-tone color schemes and LED exterior lighting. The inside gets bright white trim and plastics made form renewable materials like sugar cane and corn, although we advise against eating them.

Like every Soul, the EV comes in Base and Plus trim levels:

Base

Comes generously equipped with a bio-fabric interior with heated front seats, a navigation system, a rearview camera, automatic climate control, a heated leather-wrapped steering wheel, Bluetooth phone and a six-speaker sound system with satellite radio.

Plus

Builds on the Base with a leather interior with ventilated front seats, a cargo cover, front and rear parking sensors, fog lights, an auto-dimming rearview mirror and power-folding exterior mirrors.

CarsDirect Tip

The Sould EV is eligible for a $7,000 federal tax credit as well as various state incentives. Here's the bad news: initial supplies are going only to dealers in California, Oregon, New York, New Jersey and Maryland. However, there's nothing to prevent you from buying across state lines.
