Scooped: Rumored Kia Soul EV Caught Testing For The First Time

by Jul 9, 2013All News, Kia, Spy Shots0 comments

There has been rumors about an EV version of the Kia Soul for a longer time and now we have been able to snap, thanks to our spy photographers, the first photos of an Soul EV prototype while out testing around Hyundai-Kia R&D Center.

Previous reports have indicated that the Soul EV will become “the very-first electic vehicle to be sold in the global market, including the US, Europe and China.” The Kia Soul EV will have a battery that is good for 200 km/124 miles on one single charge.

We have no info yet about how much power the electric engine will deliver but the top speed is rated at 140 km/h (87 mph) and the sprint up to 100 km/h (62 mph) will take just under 12 seconds. Sales are expected to start during the first half of 2014 (MY2015 for the US) at a price of 27.500 euros ($ 35.000) probably before tax credits.
