Introduction

What Car? says...

Think soul, and James Brown or Aretha Franklin might well spring to mind. But it was James Carr, the man sometimes lauded as the greatest soul singer of all time, who once sang that ‘You Gotta Have Soul’, and who could argue? Well, certainly not Kia – the brand would love you to have some more soul in your life, but of the automotive kind. And the Kia Soul EV is something of a trendsetter.

In 2014, the second-generation Soul became the first car to offer buyers a regular production car that you could order with not only the usual petrol and diesel engines, but electric power, too.
