Kia Soul EV + 2015 Review

if You've Been Thinking Of Switching To The Plug And Completely Bypassing The Gas Station There Are About A Dozen Offerings Out There Depending Upon Where You Live. I've Driven Several Of Them Into Date This One Here Is My Favorite It's Kia's First All-electric Vehicle The 2015 Soul EV.

I Like The Soul Always Have Unlike The Honda Element Nissan Cube And Scion XB The Soul Caught On With Consumers Aided By Creative Hamster Marketing And Has Grown Stronger In Its Second Generation To Become One Of Kia's Best Sellers Recently Even Outpacing The Optima It's Priced Right Looks Cool And Gets Lots Done Without Feeling Like A Budget Car. So, Turning It Into An Electric Vehicle Makes Great Sense Giving Soul Shoppers In California Oregon New York New Jersey And Maryland The Option Of Swapping Out The Gas Engine For A 109 Horsepower Liquid-cooled Motor Along With The Brains That Make It All Work Located Beneath The Floor Is A 27 Kilowatt Hour 360 Volt Air-cooled Lithium-ion Battery Pack Powerful Enough To Give The Soul EV Outstanding Range Of Between 93 And 105 Miles Depending On External Factors Putting The Dual Charge Points Behind This Pop Open Foe Grill Is A Really Neat Idea Providing The Convenience To Pull Straight Into An EV Charging Space Near Me The Juice Is Usually On The House To Entice Shoppers. So, It's As Easy As Plug-and-play One Side Is For Household And 240 Volt Chargers Like The One Seen Here The Other Is For A DC Fast Charger That's As Rare As A Unicorn Around These Parts Charging The Battery From Empty To Full Takes Anywhere From 24 Hours At Level 12 Fewer Than Five Hours At Level Two Fast Charging Stations Get You On Your Way In 33 Minutes Your Kia Dealer Can Assist In The Selection And Installation Of A Level 2 Home Charger Going From My Recent Test Of The Mitsubishi.

So, Normal And Above That Premium One Note Is That These N Blue EV Super Low Rolling Resistance Tires Used To Eke Out More Mileage Squeal Every Time They're Pushed Hard Power Folding Mirrors That Deploy As You Approach Smart Key Access And Push, Button Start In An Ergonomically Sound Cockpit Make The Driver Feel Right At Home With A Great Helm And Forward Visibility There Are Even Heated Seats All Around A Heated Steering Wheel And Cooled Seats In The Front The EB Electronics Are Phenomenal Showing The Very Attention To Detail Throughout That Mitsui Never Bothered With From Easy To Read Gauges To All Sorts Of Simple Access To Battery Charge Status Driving Range Finding Charging Stations Charge Times Etc It's All Here And On Your Art Phone Through UVO EV Services Free For The First Five Years It Helps Melt Away Any Range Anxiety And Makes Owning Your EV Fun Plus UVO Is A Top-notch Infotainment System That Nearly Every Other Automaker Which Is They Had Its Instinctive To Use And Packed With Creative And Useful Features The Cabin Also Utilizes Eb Specific Features Like A Heat Pump HVAC System With A Driver Only Usage Switch And Incorporates Organic Light-emitting Diode Technology In The Driver's Display And An Extensive Use Of Bio-based Organic Content Totaling Over 52 Pounds In Interior Plastic Covering 19 Different Parts, If You Were Wondering Yes The Battery Pack Eats Up A Little Rear Seat Legroom, But Not Too Much To Be A Problem And The Cargo Area Remains Unchanged With Seats That's Still Fold To Expand Carrying Capacity Electric Cars Obviously Aren't For Everyone Due To Their Range Limitations, But For The Right Driver The Kia Soul EV Is The High Voltage Answer To Driving By The Gas Station For Test Drive Now.com.
