2020 Kia Soul EV Range Is Of 390 Kilometres

The new 2020 Kia Soul EV’s range is vastly more interesting than the 1st generation Soul EV’s estimated 160km.

While many experts will argue that range anxiety is becoming less of an issue for electric vehicle buyers, it remains one of the most important criteria in the shopping process.

The new 2020 Kia Soul was revealed late last year at the Los Angeles Auto Show. Along with a full redesign, two new versions (GT-Line and X-Line) were added to spice up the compact crossover’s appeal. To most, the changes brought to the new Soul EV are most noteworthy.

The new liquid-cooled lithium ion polymer 64 kWh battery is largely responsible for the model’s increased interest. Shared with the Hyundai Kona EV, the bigger battery and more power electric motor will be good for 201-horsepower and 291 lb.-ft. of torque which promise to vastly improve the driving experience.

You might have noticed that the 2020 Kia Soul’s range of 390km is 25km short of the Kona EV’s which boasts 415km. There are few reasons as to why this would be other than aerodynamics as both vehicles weight an almost identical 1,685kg (3,710 lbs.) and run on the same size tire and wheel combination.

The 2020 Kia Soul EV is expected to arrive later in 2019.
