Peter Thomas, Content & Data Manager at Next Green Car commented on the achievement.
The Soul EV goes on sale in showrooms later this year and deliveries will take place from early in 2015. It is Kia’s first battery-electric vehicle to be sold globally and offers a range of class leading capability figures, including a range of 132 miles and battery energy density of 200 Wh/kg, plus the same fun styling and practical interior as the combustion-engined Soul.The Soul EV has impressive environmental credentials, particularity when used in the city and charged using renewable electricity. We were impressed with the advanced battery density (200 watt-hours per kilogram), maximum range (132 miles) and the environmental consideration given to the interior materials.
