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.

Sometimes when you take an ungainly car and cover it with tons of crap it can come out kind of nifty-looking. If that weren’t possible, SEMA wouldn’t be a thing. At the Vans U.S. Open of Surfing last weekend in Huntington Beach, California, Fiat debuted a high-riding, surfer-inspired concept version of its none-too-fetching 500L dubbed, not coincidentally, the 500L–Vans. Turns out, when festooned with a two-tone paint job, 18-inch matte-black wheels, smoked lamp surroun ...

Father and son share a love for vintage MG’s

Jul 29 2014 11:45am CDT | Source: Driving Canada

It takes a different kind of person to own a classic MG sports car. From the outside, many won’t see the appeal of owning a car that is slower than a Kia Rio and requires frequent mechanical attention but there’s so much more to these old MGs than pure speed. The pushrod fours have a guttural growl unlike any other engine in the world. After a few hours in an MG you wear the car as the smell of gasoline, oil and unburned hydrocarbons waft into the pores ...

Kia Sorento
