Over 90 Miles with No Carbon Emission

Monday, September 19th, 2016




For eco-friendly consumers it is hard to beat the KIA Soul EV. Don’t look for two black strips of rubber on the road but do look for an all-electric vehicle that can go over ninety miles on a single charge and then be back again in four hours or so.

The range potential of a KIA Soul EV in New Jersey is second to only the model S Tesla which costs a great deal more. The performance is thanks to a high density lithium-ion-polymer battery. The battery, which is air cooled sits comfortably between the front and rear seats and to accommodate it the floor is only marginally higher than any other car but, even at that, the cargo space is not affected at all.

There is no need to rush:

An electric vehicle is very different than anything else you have ever driven; the KIA Soul EV gives maximum torque from the first revolution of the motor followed by smooth, linear acceleration. It does all this with no noise other than a steady hum of the motor, tires rolling on the road and the slightest wind rush noise. The ride is very smooth, the added weight of the battery tends to dampen motion; this is especially noticeable when cornering where there is absolute minimum body roll.

Although the maximum travel distance on a charge is nothing like the distance you get out of a tank of gas, the vehicle is not intended for long runs. If you do happen to run low on power while you are out, the KIA Soul EV has a built in charger; the car can be fully charged in about four hours using a 240 volt power supply or, when you are in a pinch, you can bring it up to 80 percent charge at any fast charge station.
