Kia Soul EV — $35,000 With A 120-Mile Range?
May 24th, 2013 by Nicholas Brown
Remember the car advertisement in which the Kia Soul was driven by hamsters? That was for the original gasoline-powered Kia Soul, with a tag line “a new way to roll.” Well, now, the company is looking to offer a really new way to roll.
Kia is expected to release an electric version of this car in 2014, so the hamsters can roll silently and efficiently!
Obviously, there won’t be any hamsters driving it, but it is expected to travel 120 miles per charge, and cost $35,000.
The electric Soul is supposed to be “the first electric vehicle for the global market,” unlike the rest, which are usually sold only in Europe, the United States, and Japan. Naturally, however, Nissan might have a bit of beef about that line.
