Onto one of the odder and somewhat trendier in Kia’s lineup, the actual … Kia has simply announced which, with the actual 2014 Kia EV redesign from the Soul, it will boast an all-new variant. No, not really a hybrid or a extended-range EV. directly electrical.

The actual particulars remain scarce on the actual approaching Kia EV, however we perform understand, by way of president from the European which it is going to be released the middle of 2014. This Kia’s first EV, because it sells the actual Ray EV in the home Doubtless, the actual Soul can a drivetrain based mostly off the Ray’s Fifty kW electrical which additionally boasts a 16.
