Kia Soul EV is game on.  For Kia has been heavily invested into showing the public how amazing the Soul EV is for the National Drive Electric Week (NDEW).

Fully electric vehicles can also lead to a drastic change of habits and spending. Especially and certainly in comparison to gas guzzling vehicles. As I am constantly educating consumers to know and understand what it’s like to live fully electric. Because it’s more than an amazing car. It really is a zero emissions and a cost saver!

Consequently, it can be recharged by plugging the car into a standard household outlet. You know, the same one you’d use to charge your phone!

In addition, the Kia Soul EV is the first car ever manufactured to feature a true “driver-only” ventilation system.

That’s all by pressing a button on the dashboard marked “driver-only”. Then the driver can simply switch off air to most of the cabin. Even on the dashboard. As well as, foot ventilation to other passengers. It’s all as a result to further save on energy.

Please understand. This car is also a No range anxiety car!

On average the Soul EV will take you about 90 miles on one charge! #DYK 95% of US drivers’ commute is under 40 miles and the average commute is only 13.6 miles?  It also qualifies for a federal tax credit of up to $7,500 depending on the state you live in!






Kia Soul EV National Drive Electric Event

As most of you that know and those that don’t, National Drive Electric Week is an event to heighten awareness of all-electric vehicles. It was great to test drive the Soul EV before but today I’m in New Jersey to raise awareness for this more sustainable and eco-friendly vehicle.

Kia uses an increased range of bio-based materials in order to stay true to the car’s green philosophy.

I got a t shirt for testing the Kia Soul EV today in Binghamton NY.

As I wrote in my test drive of the car:

There’s a reason this starting at $26,400 all electric car (not including the $7,500 tax credits) is selling. It does exactly what the gas 2015 Soul did (except no sunroof on the EV tested).

In addition, that’s why recently, Kia’s “hip urban crossover and all-electric zero emissions vehicle, the Soul EV”, was named the Best Eco-Friendly Vehicle at the MotorWeek 34th annual Drivers’ Choice Awards.
