EV, or Electric Vehicles, are the wave of the present on automatic technology. It seems as if each year we see more and more electric vehicles being made and brought to market. Auto Transport Quote Services wants to bring to you a new EV called the 2015 Kia Soul EV.
The vehicle starts out being not necessarily a cheap one, but it is a decent price for an electric vehicle at $36,625 before any of the Federal and State incentives. Reviews about the new Kia Soul EV state that the HVAC system is excellent, the vehicle has great acceleration and pretty decent mileage per charge.
We want to jump right in and talk about the acceleration. It is a well known fact that electric cars have excellent acceleration. It has been documented hundreds of times with Tesla Motor vehicles. The reason for this in the instant power electric vehicles have. You hit the gas and there is no waiting to get up to a certain power, it just is there in a split second. Kia has done the same thing with its’ 109 HP electric motor. Looking at the motor only being 109 horsepower seem wimpy, but with an electric vehicle you get a jump off the line fast. Stop and go and merge into traffic with ease in this electric car.
The mileage per charge is estimated at 93. That is actually pretty decent for the price point. The Chevrolet Volt gets nowhere close to that number and the Tesla Model S gets much more, but it is also more than twice the money. The charging of all EV’s can be challenging if you need to drive for long periods of time because electric charging stations are still not wildly popular yet, so you mostly have to just charge it at home. You can charge the Kia Soul EV with a standard outlet or a 240-volt outlet. In a standard outlet it can take about 8-10 hours to charge it fully. The 240-volt will charge the vehicle is just 4-5 hours. In most scenarios the standard charger will work just fine and just charging the car overnight.
As a company, we have always been a fan of electric vehicles, especially Tesla vehicles. This Kia Soul EV is a great little car that has a ton of offer its customer base. It is affordable enough for the average America and the range is plenty as well for most scenarios. All-in-all it looks like it is a great buy.
