Soul EV will be the first electric vehicle from Kia

Kia has announced that it will be producing an all electric version of the Soul compact crossover vehicle. The electric version of the car will be the first EV from Kia. He hasn't offered much in the way of details about the vehicle and didn't even offer a picture of it.

What Kia did say was that the Soul EV with debut "at an upcoming major US auto show." My money's on the Los Angeles Auto Show coming up soon. With California being one largest markets in the US for electric vehicles, an official unveiling there would make sense for Kia.

So far, there's no indication of how far the car will drive electric power or what sort of battery packs of use. Odds are will be a basic EV looking to compete on price.

Oct 28 2014 3:25pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

We like the Honda Fit, as it delivers a large amount of behind-the-wheel fun in a small, clever package, and we’d recommend it to just about anyone shopping for an affordable, practical runabout. Unfortunately, we would have to add the caveat that it might take a long time to get one: Automotive News is reporting that production of the Fit and its upcoming HR-V sibling are severely delayed. Fit shipments are delayed by two months, the industry paper reports. And the HR-V w ...

Kia Teases “High-Performance” K900 Concept for SEMA—and It Might Actually Be Cool

Oct 28 2014 1:50pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

After a quiet year of middling sales, Kia is hoping to inject some excitement into its K900 luxury yacht. First, Kia enlisted LeBron James as the K900′s “Luxury Ambassador. Now the company is building a hot-rod version for SEMA. Here’s a short sneak peek at what’s in store for the V-8 sedan under the hot lights of the Las Vegas Convention Center. Admittedly, there’s not much to discern from the clip—maybe some kind of exhaust component being welded, a coat of imposing battl ...

Video: Kia K900 looks, sounds snarly with forced induction in SEMA preview

Oct 25 2014 2:15pm CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Aftermarket, SEMA Show, Sedan, Performance, Videos, Kia Kia is getting all set for this year's SEMA Show in Las Vegas, and among its vehicles is something that seems pretty mean. The Korean company is keeping details quiet about what's under the hood of what it calls the High-Performance K900, but from listening to this video it certainly sounds fantastic with quite a meaty growl.

Student-Designed Visio.M EV Concept: How BMW’s i3 Should Have Looked

Oct 24 2014 12:59pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

BMW’s i3 electric hatchback is a lot of things—efficient, futuristic, packed with technology—but it isn’t exactly what you’d call handsome, at least not in the traditional sense. Students at the Technical University Munich (TUM), with backing from both BMW and Daimler, have come up with a solution—well, more of an alternative—in the form of an electric car that looks remarkably similar to the i3, ...
