It's not a sports car, but it makes  a big statement about being environmentally friendly by using  interior construction materials such as corn and sugar cane to  prevent wasteful and harmful manufacturing processes. The 2015 Soul  EV is similar to the regular Soul except that it only runs on  battery power, and it has a few extra features to distinguish it  from its gas-powered counterpart.

The exterior  of the new Kia is practical and  striking, and most people will  find it attractive. It has a  somewhat boxy shape that causes  it to be noisy when it reaches  speeds above 55 mph, but most of  the noise is sealed out of the  cabin by the windows and engine  compartment. The 2015 KIA Soul  EV serving Littleton CO comes  equipped with variable  intermittent windshield wipers,  a rear wiper and defogger,  16-inch alloy wheels, all-season  tires, rear lift-gate doors and  windows, LED trim lights and a  grille design that is modified  from the version that comes with  the regular Soul. An Arapahoe  Kia dealer should have the 2015  Soul EV in all of its available  two-tone colors and with  optional packages such as  paint-protecting film, wheel  locks and puddle-illuminating  lights.

Powertrain

 Kia Soul EV Powertrain

The 2015 KIA Soul EV serving Littleton Colorado has an adequately powerful 109-horsepower engine  that gives it enough  accelerating strength to drive  on freeways and merge into  traffic. It has a front-wheel  drive powertrain that provides  enough torque for city driving,  and its all-season tires give it  enough road grip to navigate  through rain, slush, snow, ice  and sleet. A 27-kilowatt-hour  lithium-ion battery powers its  electric motor, and its energy  consumption, when converted to  miles-per-gallon, is 120 mpg on  the freeway and 92 mpg in the  city. These values take into  account the amount of carbon  dioxide pumped into the  atmosphere to generate the  electricity needed to power the  Soul EV. Even though it does  leave a carbon footprint, its  super-efficient energy  consumption ratings make it a  good choice for environmentally  conscious drivers.

The new Kia  Soul has an all-electrical  engine, and its transmission is  a single-speed direct drive  transmission that allows it to  get to 62 mph in 11.2 seconds.  The electric Soul weighs about  330 pounds more than the  gas-powered Soul, and a KIA  Dealer near Littleton Colorado  Springs area will be able to  demonstrate the benefits of the  210 lb-ft of torque that allows  this vehicle to climb hills  while loaded with cargo. Owning  a battery-powered car is  completely different than taking  care of a gas-powered vehicle,  and the Soul EV takes about five  hours to charge from a 240-volt  outlet. It can also charge from  a standard 120-volt outlet or  from a specially made DC  fast-charging station. On a full  charge, this vehicle goes about  92 miles, and its well-tuned  suspension gives it a smooth  ride without making it loose or  hard to handle. The width of its  turning circle is 34.8 feet, and  it can carry up to 1,032 pounds  of cargo.

Safety

 Kia Soul EV Safety

This Kia  model has a long list of safety  features, although it's not on  the IIHS list of Top Safety  Picks for 2015. It has a  four-wheel anti-lock braking  system, front and rear airbags,  anchors for child seats, an  assisted emergency braking  system, running daytime lights,  child safety locks, automatic  nighttime-sensing headlamps,  front and rear headrests, a  three-point center seatbelt in  the back seat, a tire pressure  monitor, stability control and  traction control. Most of these  features are good enough to get  discounts on auto insurance, but  in crash tests, the Kia Soul EV  performs about average for its  class. It's safer to drive than  a smaller, lighter car, but it  probably isn't so safe that it  will significantly reduce  insurance rates due to  crash-worthiness. New vehicles  come with emergency service as  well as airbag deployment  notification that alerts a  response team when the airbags  are deployed in a crash. This  all-electric KIA Soul is an  attractive vehicle inside and  out, and it provides a smooth  ride with plenty of power for  city and freeway driving with up  to five passengers and their  belongings. It really makes an  ecological statement by using  environmentally friendly  materials instead of toxic  plastic, rubber and paint.  Charging the battery is easy and  versatile, and the  27-kilowatt-hour battery in the  Soul EV's engine provides  long-lasting driving without  making the car too heavy to  efficiently maneuver. Compared  to other electric vehicles in  the same class, such as the  competing Nissan Leaf, the  electric Kia Soul is noticeably  faster and more powerful. For  more information and to schedule  a test drive, contact Arapahoe  KIA serving Littleton and  Colorado Springs and ask about  the various features and  additional options available at  the dealership.
