Electric Vehicle Alert: Electric Soul to Debut Soon

Kia confirmed last October 1, 2013 that an electric version of its iconic Soul model will hit the US automobile market next year.

According to the information provided by the Korean carmaker when the confirmation was made, the Kia Soul EV would serve as the company s first electric vehicle. This is could possibly mean that the carmaker has already decided to join the electric vehicle segment and its consumers could expect that more electric vehicles from the company would be unveiled in the next few years.

Aside from confirming the availability of the Kia Soul EV next year, the Korean carmaker also hinted that the upcoming electric vehicle will be competing with other popular electric vehicle models that are already in the market such as the Chevrolet Volt, the Ford Focus Electric and the Nissan Leaf.

Kia has also explained that the upcoming electric version of the Soul will be built with eco-consciousness as its standard. The carmaker also revealed that about 85 percent of the materials used in the upcoming version of the Soul will be recycled as soon as the vehicle reaches the end of its lifespan.

Kia also boasted that the way the Kia Soul EV was made does not only projects the company s expertise to create different kinds of vehicles but also emphasizes the carmaker s serious commitment in producing cars with minimal adverse effects on the natural environment.

Unfortunately, Kia has not yet announced the exact details regarding the vehicle s powertrain, the marketing and packaging strategy that will be used in it, its range and the vehicle s MPGe. However, the Korean carmaker assured that the said information will be revealed prior to the vehicle s actual launch date in 2014 along with the images depicting the Kia Soul EV s actual appearance.

As of the present, the Soul was just launched with the 2014 model year attached to it. This is also offered in three trim levels composed of the base, Plus and Exclaim trims. The vehicle still retains its relatively odd and boxy look. However, Kia has installed a lot of add-ons into the vehicle to make this look refreshed.

In addition to that, the number of standard and optional features offered on the 2014 Kia Soul was also increased.
