The Soul EV’s electric motor offers 109 horsepower. Its unique, multi-layer magnet design provides quiet, smooth-power performance. And its lightweight design helps deliver swift acceleration for an exciting and efficient drive.
Every part of the Soul EV is designed with efficiency in mind—even braking. Every time you decelerate or go downhill, the regenerative braking system recovers kinetic energy that would otherwise be lost. That energy goes straight to recharging the battery.
With an electric drivetrain, there’s no revving up or switching gears. The Soul EV’s electric motor delivers 210 lb.-ft. of instant torque, giving you immediate responsiveness and smooth, dynamic acceleration the moment you put your foot on the pedal.
More energy-dense than most EV batteries, the Soul EV’s slim lithium-ion polymer battery is packed with 27 kWh of energy to maximize driving range. We placed it right under the floor to give you more cabin space and better handling with a lower center of gravity. Add that to the instant torque from the electric motor and you’ve got one exhilarating ride.
Depart in style: the LED rear combination lamps turn brilliance up a notch.
One distinctive feature that sets you apart from other Souls: the unique Eco Electric badge. Located on both the hatch and front side.
Blue-accented Projector Beam Headlights give you a crisp look and clear visibility of the road. With Auto Light Control, the headlights automatically turn on or off as needed to save energy.
Plug in your Soul EV and the eStatus Charge Light illuminates with 3 light levels to tell you when you reach full charge. A clear view through the windshield lets you quickly check your status from outside your car.
The Eco Cloth seat fabric is made out of plant-based materials like sugar cane and corn. It’s soft and durable, so there’s no tradeoff in quality for being eco-friendly.
The translucent white, double-injection molding provides a 3D effect for eye-catching style. And, in Soul EV form, it’s made from bio-based materials.
Maximize range by minimizing waste. A highly efficient AC and heater in one, the standard heat pump utilizes waste heat from the car’s own power electronics to further your energy savings. Available on the Soul EV and Soul EV+.
ECO Driving challenges you to be the most eco-friendly driver you can be. The more environment-friendly the drive, the more leaves your tree grows. Level up and make each drive greener than your last.
From the debut of the Organic LED (OLED) 3.5-inch display to the climate-control technologies that maximize driving range, the Soul EV comes loaded with energy-smart innovations. The free smartphone UVO EV Services app and advanced in-car telematics system make managing your EV simple, no matter where you are or where you plan to go.
We have a lot of confidence in the quality and durability of every new Kia that rolls off the assembly line. So much confidence, that we offer an industry-leading Kia 10-year or 100,000-mile warranty program.
See what’s behind your Soul EV with the available rear-camera display. When you reverse, the display offers a live image complete with a screen impression to gauge the object’s distance.
Navigate tight spaces with ease. The available Parking Assist system uses ultrasonic sensors in the front and rear bumpers to alert you of obstructions in your path.
