Could it be the perfect city car?

Soul EV
A very practical EV

Really like the Kia Soul EV better than I thought I would. An electric vehicle that looks and drives like real car! Simple, yet modern interior. Driving range is 160 km.

Impressive little machine. As an electric car, it is still pricey for limited range, but it is a funky design with a long list of available features and a pleasant driving manner.

Kia has transformed it Soul into a very interesting EV!

Most comfortable seats, ever! Love the fabric, too.

The Kia Soul EV has been the big surprise for me, this year. It's a well-sorted vehicle that, in my opinion, is the best version of this little wagon, even though it's by far the most expensive of the Soul line.
