Tuesday, 18 November 2014
- Kia Soul EV recognised for class leading environmental technology
- Proudly earns the commended accolade in the ‘Crossover' category
- Class-leading 132 miles range and 200 Wh/kg density battery
Less than a week after its official UK launch, the Kia Soul EV has already begun to be recognised for its class leading environmental technology, impressive performance and range capabilities, by the Next Green Car Awards 2014.
Sitting proudly as a strong competitor in the award's ‘Crossover' segment, the Kia Soul EV received an impressive Next Greencar (NGC) Rating of 14*, placing it firmly as the commended vehicle in that category. It also achieved the lowest CO2 figures in the whole segment - 0 g/km.
Peter Thomas, Content & Data Manager at Next Green Car commented on the achievement. "The Soul EV has impressive environmental credentials, particularity when used in the city and charged using renewable electricity. We were impressed with the advanced battery density (200 watt-hours per kilogram), maximum range (132 miles) and the environmental consideration given to the interior materials."
The Soul EV goes on sale in showrooms later this year and deliveries will take place from early in 2015. It is Kia's first battery-electric vehicle to be sold globally and offers a range of class leading capability figures, including a range of 132 miles and battery energy density of 200 Wh/kg, plus the same fun styling and practical interior as the combustion-engined Soul.
