Kia Soul Electric Car

While some of the electric cars out there have more range (for now), the Kia Soul electric was a fun car to drive of the all electrics. My friends at Kia know simply how to make an electric car.

As I have written before, fully electric vehicles can lead to a drastic change of habits and spending from gas guzzling vehicles. As I am constantly educating consumers to know and understand what it’s like to live fully electric; bottom line it’s more than an amazing car. It really is a Kia Soul all electrified car!
