Available for customers to order now, the Soul EV ‘Maxx’ is available from £34,945, making it eligible for the UK Government’s £2,500 Plug-in Car Grant. This reduces the price that customers pay to £32,445.
The ‘Maxx’ features the new Kia logo inside and out. Its comprehensive standard equipment includes 17-inch aluminium alloy wheels, black leather upholstery, heated front seats and steering wheel, plus support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
The EV features the same long-range 64kWh lithium-ion battery pack as before, delivering a range of 280 miles on a single charge (WLTP).
The Soul EV remains a popular choice with EV buyers, with more than 900 sold in the UK so far in 2021. It is one of two fully electric models offered by Kia UK, alongside the popular e-Niro electric crossover. The Soul EV and e-Niro will be joined later in 2021 by the Kia EV6.
First customer deliveries of the Soul EV ‘Maxx’ are expected in autumn 2021. As with all Kia models, the ‘Maxx’ will benefit from Kia’s industry-leading 7-year/100,000-mile warranty.
As WhichEV reported, Kia Motors has also launched its KiaCharge service in the UK, providing an integrated public charging service, designed to give drivers easier access to public vehicle charging.
