Kia announces pricing and spec of Soul EV


Kia has announced the pricing and specification of the electric Soul EV, as well as open up order books so that “demand can be judged to ensure that the appropriate supply is requested”.

The Soul EV will be offered in one highly specified grade called ‘First Edition’ and is priced at £37,295, or £33,795 with the Plug-in Car Grant subsidy deducted. 

The first examples of the Soul EV ‘First Edition’ are scheduled to reach UK dealers during Q1 2020.

The Soul EV will be powered by a 64kWh lithium-ion battery pack that delivers a range of 280 miles from one charge.

The all-new Soul EV has a Type 2 charging inlet which allows the 64kWh battery to be fully charged in 9 hours and 35 minutes. Additionally, with CCS Combo charging, the Soul EV can be charged even quicker, achieving up to 80 per cent charge in 1 hour and 15 minutes with a 50kW DC Rapid Charging Station. A three-pin cable and Type 2 connection will be provided with the car.
