Kia's first purely battery-powered vehicle was the Soul Electric. Early versions had modest driving range on a full charge, but it wasn't long until the Soul Electric boasted one of the best range estimates in the mid-priced EV segment. The Soul's cabin is roomier than its size suggests, and while the Soul Electric isn't inexpensive, it comes loaded with high-tech features and drives with class-above refinement.
