LAGUNA BEACH, Calif. — Why is this machine not called the Electric Soul? Seriously, picture this: “So, what kind of car do you drive?” “I’ve got an Electric Soul, baby. And check out my sweet platform shoes. Those are real goldfish.” However, “Soul EV” it is. Walk away, not today, disco lady. This smurftastic little tyke is not Kia’s first entry into the electric car market, something the company’s been toying with domestically for d ...

Scion x Riley Hawk Skate Tour xB

Sep 29 2014 6:00am CDT | Source: Top Speed
