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.

2014 Kia Forte

Aug 21 2014 10:43am CDT | Source: The Car Connection

The 2014 Kia Forte impresses in most ways that matter for budget-conscious small-car shoppers. And with decent performance, an excellent feature set, three body styles, and plenty of style inside and out, it sounds like the right formula to battle best-in-class offerings from Ford and Mazda. But with the Forte's poor crash-test scor ...

2015 Hyundai Tucson

Aug 21 2014 8:29am CDT | Source: The Car Connection

Some compact crossovers channel tougher SUVs in their design and equipment, but not the Hyundai Tucson. Like rivals from Ford and Kia and Honda, it puts all its effort into smoothing out the road ahead, and coddling as many as five passengers--on the street, not in the dirt. It starts with the design. Sharp lines up front flow into.. ...

2015 Kia Optima

Aug 18 2014 4:45pm CDT | Source: The Car Connection

The current generation of the Kia Optima gets to carry forward for one more model year -- one year longer than its Hyundai Sonata cousin, which is being redesigned this year -- and that should be fine by most shoppers. In part, it's because the 2015 Optima was always an advanced student of ...

Pope Francis chauffeured around Korea in a Kia Soul

Filed under: Budget, Government/Legal, Hatchback, Kia, Celebrities, South Korea Korea is not without its domestic automobiles that would be suitable for transporting a visiting head of state: the Hyundai Equus comes to mind. Failing that, a Genesis sedan would do the trick. Maybe even a Kia K900 or a Renault Samsung SM7. But those familiar with Pope Francis and his taste in transportation won't be surprised t ...
