Solid infrastructure and consumer demand propel Soul EV beyond California
IRVINE, Calif., March 25, 2015– Following the successful launch of the Soul EV late last year in California. For Kia Motors America (KMA) is proud to announce it is expanding the availability of its fully charged urban runabout into five new states. For that’s:
- and Hawaii.
Most noteworthy, electric vehicle demand has been growing in these states. All because consumers also have expressed significant interest in Soul EV.
Plus, with more than 1,800 charging stations combined in those areas. For the robust EV infrastructure within these markets makes battery-powered travel convenient. Especially it’s becoming an increasingly appealing choice for consumers.
Charging at Dealerships
Within each state, select Kia retailers will be certified to sell and service the Soul EV. So customers will have access to charging stations installed at these facilities.
The Soul EV-authorized Kia dealership locations will be announced closer to the Soul EV’s on-sale date in the expansion states later this year. Additional markets are set to come online in 2016.
“From the inception of the Soul EV program, Kia’s sales strategy has been progressive and pragmatic,” said Orth Hedrick, vice president of product planning, KMA. “With the level of demand and supporting infrastructure in the state, California was a natural place to start, but we’ve been carefully studying other markets. Between consumer reaction to the Soul EV and growinginfrastructure programs in these five states, this is a logical – and exciting – next step in our rollout plan.”
Following the Soul EV’s expansion into Georgia, four other states – Hawaii, Oregon, Washington, and Texas – are expected to come online in June, and KMA continues to investigate the possibility of offering the Soul EV in other states as well. Offered in two trims, Base and + (Plus), the 2015 Soul EV MSRP5 is $33,700 (not including federal tax rebate of $7,500) for the Base and $35,700 (not including federal tax rebate of $7,500) for the Plus.
