SOUL EV WINS AUTOMOBILE JOURNALISTS ASSOCIATION OF CANADA (AJAC) GREEN CAR OF THE YEAR AWARD

Wednesday, 25 March 2015

The Kia Soul EV was presented with the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC) Green Car of the Year Award during the opening ceremonies of press day at the Vancouver International Auto Show.

The Soul EV finished ahead of competing finalists to win the award which included the Toyota Camry Hybrid, the Honda Fit (Jazz in UK Market) and the Subaru Legacy.

"Kia Canada is honored to receive the Green Car of the Year award as selected by the voting AJAC membership" said Maria Soklis, Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, Kia Canada Inc. "Class leading range and ample utility without compromise is a key advantage that the Soul EV offers to Canadians."

This is the second Automobile Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC) award that the Soul EV has won since its launch to the Canadian market late last year. In December, Kia Canada was presented with the AJAC Car of the Year category award winner for 'Best New City Car.' It also signifies two consecutive years where the Soul has won consecutive awards including the 'Best New Family Car (Under $30,000)' in 2014.

Soul EV was also recently named the Best Eco-Friendly Vehicle at MotorWeek's 34th annual Drivers' Choice Awards in the US and 2015 Car of the Year in Norway.
