Maintenance Driving Tips for Improving Fuel Economy

You may already know that good car maintenance and driving habits can affect your mileage. But did you know that you could just about double your fuel efficiency with just a few simple adjustments?

On the maintenance side of things, keeping your tires inflated, your wheels aligned, and your car clean all have an effect. For example, proper tire pressure will reduce the amount of energy required to overcome the friction between the tires and the road and make it easy for the engine to turn the wheels. The same is true about wheel alignment.

As for keeping it clean, this actually improves your vehicle’s aerodynamics by reducing air resistance for as much as a four percent mileage benefit.

As a driver, you also have the power to influence your car’s fuel efficiency. Rolling the windows up at high speeds, accelerating and braking more smoothly, and combining trips are all steps you can take to reduce the amount of time it takes for that odometer to reach the red zone.

But when all else fails, there’s always one of Kia’s fuel efficient vehicles! Stop by Kia of Santa Fe and let us know how much fuel you’ve been saving today!

The K900, which gets a maximum of 25 mpg highway while churning out 420 horsepower, “makes believers out of skeptics.” So if you’re still skeptical, just come by Kia of Santa Fe to become a believer today.

Kia Unveils the 2015 Soul EV at 2014 Chicago Auto Show

You’ve wondered. You’ve asked. You’ve waited. And, at last, we have a question for you . are you ready?

KIA Soul – 81.4kW Electric

The 2015 Kia Soul EV was finally revealed last week at the 2014 Chicago Auto Show, and while it may look like your ordinary average Soul (even with the super-sporty electric blue body/white roof paint scheme), it’s what’s inside that most definitely counts.

At the heart of the Kia Soul EV will be an 81.4kW electric motor that creates 109 horsepower and 210 lb-ft of torque. The motor should allow for a 0 to 60 time of less than 12 seconds and an electronically-limited top speed of 90 miles per hour. The motor will be supplied power by a 27kWh, air-cooled, 200 Wh/kg battery, located conveniently and unobtrusively beneath the floor.

The Soul EV will also lean upon the third generation of Kia’s regenerative braking system, which helps store up to 12 percent of the vehicle’s kinetic energy to help resupply the battery during coasting and braking. There will be four available regeneration modes: Drive and Brake modes in both the on and off states of Eco-mode.

The Soul EV can be plugged into any 120v outlet or a 240v EV charger and will come standarad with two charging ports. The 2015 Kia Soul EV can be jumped up to an 80 percent charge in as little as 33 minutes (with a 50kW-output charger).

New York Daily News estimates that the Kia Soul will carry a price tag ranging between $30,000 and $35,000. We know that’s roughly double the cost of the base model Soul that we carry here. but that figure doesn’t take into account potential federal and state tax credits.
