As Kia’s first all-electric zero emissions vehicle, the Soul EV was designed to show that going green could be easier (and better-looking) than ever. And it succeeded. The new Soul EV recently won the Drivers’ Choice Award from MotorWeek, one of the industry’s foremost authorities on buyer needs.
So what makes the EV so great? Aside from incredible fuel economy, Kia Soul EV styling is a big factor, according to Kia. Sure, the EV is rated at 105 MPGe, and sure, the EV has 210 lb-ft of torque. But what’s really impressive is that it looks incredibly sporty and modern, taking much of its design from the new standard Soul model.
“As the centerpiece of Kia’s Clean Mobility program, the Soul EV has the best range in its segment, EPA estimated at 93 miles, and it’s been recognized by Underwriters Laboratories for its use of bio-based materials,” said Orth Hedrick, VP of product planning. “MotorWeek’s Best Eco-Friendly Vehicle award is a great honor from a respected source and a powerful endorsement of the Soul EV’s unique blend of range, utility, style and value.”
Aside from looking great, the new model is also designed around comfort. That means more leg room and more space for cargo. Plus, there are four new color choices being offered. With all of these great new features, it’s no wonder the Soul EV was named Drivers’ Choice.
