2016 Kia Soul EV
2016 Kia Soul EV Review
With zero emissions, the 2016 Kia Soul EV Review is the electric car that is environmentally friendly in dynamic ways as well as being practical and a joy to drive. Bio-based materials further the Soul EV’s consciousness of its environmental impact and are also very durable. Fun-to-drive is not something usually associated with 100% electric running vehicles, however the 4-door 2016 Kia Soul EV proves to be the exception, delivering 210 lb-ft of torque for your driving pleasure. Available 2016 Kia Soul EV trim levels include the EV, EV Luxury, and EV Luxury Sunroof.
Clean and Comfortable
The 2016 Kia Soul EV has unique style unto its own that is unmistakable on the road. With edgey contours and striking lines, the Soul EV has a stylish and sophisticated body that screams fun and individuality. Exterior highlights include 16″ alloy wheels, LED positioning lights, and LED light bar taillights. Its super low rolling resistance tires further enhance efficiency and range. Absence of a front grille is distinctive, aesthetically pleasing, and aerodynamic while hinting at the low environmental impact electric engine. Body-colour front-bumper and rear-fascia are sporty and complete the unique look of the Soul EV’s eye-catching exterior.
Kia is notorious for functional and ergonomic cabins, and the 2016 Kia Soul EV lives up to this reputation. Through the use of bio-based materials, chemical-free paint, and environmentally-friendly plastics made from plant-based materials, the Soul EV is the first vehicle to garner UL Environment recognition. Standard heated front seats and heated steering wheel are ideal features to have in cold weather. Spacious seating for five passengers is available in leather for enhanced cabin luxury. Steering wheel-mounted controls assist to keep your focus on driving. Another convenient feature is the ability to set a time and temperature to pre-heat or pre-cool your Soul EV while it is charging, so you do not have to use that power from the battery while driving. The Organic LED Supervision instrument cluster helps maximize driving range and informs you of the range and charge status of your Kia Soul EV. Voice-activated navigation means you can keep your hands on the wheel and eyes on the road at all times when programming in your next destination into the touchscreen system. Cargo versatility is met by split folding rear seats which can increase cargo capacity for larger items effortlessly. Let more natural light and fresh air into the cabin with the Soul EV Luxury Sunroof trim level.
Long Range, No Emissions
The 2016 Kia Soul EV Review is truly the ultimate city vehicle; it is ultra-quiet with its multi-layer magnet design electric engine delivering capable power and unbeatable efficiency. No revving or switching of gears with its electric drivetrain delivers smooth acceleration and handling. And with an official EPA-estimated range of 149km on a full charge, the Soul EV is practical as well.
