2020 Kia e-Soul

We saw the all-new 2020 Kia Soul EV take the phase at last year’s Los Angeles Auto Show and now its European variation has actually made its launching at the Geneva Auto Show. It’s the Kia e-Soul and it will be readily available with 2 various batteries: a basic 39.2 kWh battery with a 100 kW motor and a long-range 64 kWh battery with a 150 kW electrical motor. These are the very same electrical powertrains that power Europe’s Kia e-Niro and the Hyundai Kona Electric.

How Far and How Fast?

In Europe, the Kia e-Soul will be the only variation of the third-generation Soul offered. The basic variation will have a variety of 172 miles according to the WLTP test cycle and the exact same test states the long-range variation will have a remarkable variety of 280 miles. Relatively, the EPA states the long-range system, which utilizes the exact same electrical drivetrain as the U.S.-spec Soul EV, just gets 243 miles of range.

The basic variation of the Kia e-Soul has actually a declared 0-to-62 miles per hour time of 9.6 seconds and the long-range variation with the more effective motor can arrive in 7.6 seconds. Kia states both variants can be charged from 20-80 percent capability in 42 minutes with a 100 kW DC quickly battery charger.

Getting Competitive

When revealing the Kia e-Soul, Kia boasted that the battery loads powering the new EV are 30 percent more energy effective than Europe’s very popular electrical vehicle. It does not define what that car is, however we’re quite sure they’re discussing the Nissan Leaf, which is among the e-Soul’s leading rivals.

On top of the electrical drivetrain, the e-Soul has whatever we like about the third-gen Kia Soul. It maintains the cool, blocky styling making it roomy and practical on the within and a head-turner on the exterior. The e-Soul looks extremely comparable to our Soul EV right down to the model-specific wheels.
