Kia Soul EV Features in San Diego & Chula Vista

Everyone is familiar with the popular Kia Soul, which has been a mainstay of the Kia lineup for several years now. This year, Kia expands upon the traditional Kia Soul to bring us an electric version of the model, the Kia Soul EV. This exciting addition to the Kia lineup is available right here in San Diego at Kearny Pearson Kia. We offer many other new and used Kia vehicles in stock as well, and you can take any of them for a test drive when you visit our Kia dealership in San Diego.

The traditional Kia Soul model is famous for its unique boxy styling and flair, making it unmistakable and iconic within the hatchback category. For the EV, Kia takes the body of the Kia Soul and equips it with a completely electric powertrain, replacing the traditional gas powered engine. The Kia Soul EV is offered in two different trim levels, the base level trim and the Soul+ trim. Under the hood, the Kia Soul EV offers a powertrain that consists of an electric motor that is powered by a 27 kilowatt hour lithium ion battery, which are together capable of producing up to 109 horsepower and 210 pounds per foot of torque. The Kia Soul EV can be recharged using a 240 volt outlet, and a full charge takes less than five hours, so you’ll be back on the road in no time. Kia estimates that a fully charged battery will have a range of about 92 miles.

Like the standard Soul, the Kia Soul EV is equipped with a plethora of standard features, including a navigation system, Bluetooth connectivity, and a rearview camera. Drivers will also be treated to Sirius radio and traffic services and a five year subscription to Kia Uvo eServices as a standard, no cost addition. The Uvo eServices feature offers a full suite of apps that can be connected to your car through your smart phone. As you’d expect from the fun and funky Soul line, the Kia Soul EV is available in a number of cool colors, allowing drivers to personalize their ride.
