The new generation Kia Soul is currently in testing phase and, unsurprisingly, it will be joined by a zero-emission version.
Now, the latter was already unveiled, and it promises up to 470km (292 miles) of range on a single charge when equipped with the 64kWh battery pack.
The Korean publication gives no details on the battery pack, but if the information is correct, then it should have with a smaller capacity than that of its Hyundai sibling – and if it eventually gains the latter’s battery, then it will likely be offered on higher trim levels.
In addition to the mechanical upgrades, the 2019 Soul will maintain its boxy shape, but it will have a larger footprint compared to its predecessor. Kia will launch the new Soul later this year, probably during the second half, powered by traditional petrol and probably diesel engines, too, and the fully electric variant should join the lineup later.
