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.
