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.

Five Things That Might Make You Spend $40K on a Kia Sedona Minivan

Sep 29 2014 9:38am CDT | Source: Cars.com

< Despite Kia's recent entrance into the uber-lux car segment with the 2015 K900, a full-size sedan, many of us may still think of Kia as a budget brand. With the launch of the reinvented 2015 Kia Sedona, some families may pause before spending around $40,000 for the fully loaded minivan, which you have to do to get all the nifty features. This puts the Sedona in the same price range as the bulk its competitors; read, no major cost savings here. ...

Minivan Review: 2015 Kia Sedona

Sep 29 2014 9:08am CDT | Source: Driving Canada

This is what my life has come to: parked in a mall outside a Jamba Juice in a minivan, with the A/C on and Taylor Swift’s Shake It Off cranked up to full blast. Say, this song is kinda catchy. Haters gonna hate hate hate and something something something doodly-do. No! Stop! Where’s my iPod? I think I have some Motörhead on there – what happened man? I used to be cool! Ah the minivan, official vehicle of the used-to-be-cool. When David By ...

2015 Toyota Sienna

Sep 25 2014 1:57pm CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Minivan/Van, Toyota, First Drives It's hard to love a minivan, but it's very, very easy to use one. More than any other kind of vehicle - save a panel van, perhaps - the minivan is the most appliance-like of four-wheeled transportation devices. And most minivan buyers don't need to love their purchases; they just need to use them. So when it comes to a minivan's driving dynam ...
