"As the centerpiece of Kia's Clean Mobility program, the Soul EV has the best range in its segment, EPA estimated at 93 miles , and it's been recognized by Underwriters Laboratories for its use of bio-based materials," said Orth Hedrick, vice president of product planning, Kia Motors America (KMA). "MotorWeek's Best Eco-Friendly Vehicle award is a great honor from a respected source and a powerful endorsement of the Soul EV's unique blend of range, utility, style and value."
"The Kia Soul EV is the perfect EV. It is totally practical with plenty of room for adults and everyday cargo," noted John Davis, host and executive producer, MotorWeek. "It has more power and range compared to other affordable all-electric vehicles. Plus, its funky style makes driving the Kia Soul EV really cool."
