Here’s The All-New 2020 Kia Soul EV

When some automakers have tried to make the EV business sound extraordinarily astronomical, others like the Asian giant KIA motors has chosen a rather different path; keeping it simple and practical.

If this doesn’t sound close to realistic, take a close look at the Kia Soul EV and you will find all the hype simplified for common use. The 2020 Kia Soul EV revealed at the LA Auto show is a front-wheel-drive whose electric motor will deliver 201 horsepower and 291 pound-feet of torque. This is a significant rise from the 2018 Soul EV’s which gave us 109 horsepower and 210 pound-feet.

This power has been upped primarily because of a bigger battery (a liquid-cooled 64-kWh) that will drive you for 239 miles. That this is a very practical car in looks and performance is all very evident.

The new version will also wear 17-inch alloy wheels, LED headlamps, unique fog lamps. Being an EV, it has less use of a grille and instead takes this space to enhance its shape.

This car has applied enviable tech just as would be expected, bringing around a 10.3-inch color touch screen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a suite of active safety systems, and a revamped version of the UVO telematics system through which drivers can check the battery state and charging status. It is also useful in outlining a charging schedule.

Kia has taken the EV prospects rather seriously, perhaps with the recognition that it will be a viciously competitive segment. Making the Soul EV a representative in its worthy cause is agreeably the right thing to do.
