2015 Kia Soul EV Overview
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:
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.
