Introduction

All-new Kia Soul will be sold exclusively as an electric model from 2019.

Drivers have a choice of long-range (64 kWh) and standard-range (39.2 kWh) powertrains.

The long-range 64 kWh battery pack is paired with a 150 kW (204PS) electric motor, enabling the Soul EV to travel up to 280 miles on a single charge (on the WLTP combined cycle). 

With the powertrain’s maximum 395 Nm torque available from a standstill, and 84 per cent more power than the car it replaces, the long-range 64 kWh Soul EV will accelerate from 0-62mph in 7.6 seconds.

The standard-range 39.2 kWh battery pack powers an efficient 100 kW (136PS) electric motor. With peak torque of 395Nm, and 23 per cent more power than the outgoing Soul EV, the significantly improved efficiency of the battery nevertheless enables the standard-range Soul EV to travel up to 172 miles on a single charge.

It has a vibrant interior inspired, Kia says, by music - with signature 'tweeter' speakers bookending the dashboard. 

The new Kia Soul EV is built in Korea and will go on sale in the UK in the UK in spring 2019. Prices are yet to be confirmed.
