KIA Soul EV review

NGC verdict 06.05.2016

Kia has big plans for an electrified future but you can get a glimpse of it already with the Soul EV. The compact crossover is striking and grabs attention as you drive, despite looking almost exactly the same as its conventionally-powered stablemates. The same can be said for the interior, and it is under the bonnet where you will get clues as to how the Soul EV is powered. Next Green Car had one on test for a couple of weeks to find out what the Soul EV is like to live with.
