3 Interesting Features of the 2018 Kia Soul EV

The Kia Soul EV is a trendy car popular with everyone from hipsters, to environmentalist, to soccer moms. The funky hatchback is loaded with personality and wonderful features. It’s known for being practical, yet stylish. With an impressive range of over 90 miles on a single charge, the 2018 Kia Soul has a cool eco-vibe that makes for a remarkable ownership experience. These are three interesting features of the 2018 Kia Soul EV.

UVO

UVO is Kia’s incredible infotainment center. Every driver has their own personality, just like every Kia. That’s why UVO is available in three suites including eServices, eco, and luxe. Each suite comes with its own unique services and features. While all UVO-equipped vehicles include some standard features, both eco and luxe include additional features that further enhance the driver experience.

Roadside assistance is available with the simple push of a button. If for some reason your car is acting up, you can run instant diagnostics and make an appointment with the nearest dealership from the convenience of your car. Other amazing features include My Car Zone, which allows you to set up alerts for the young drivers in your household for things such as curfew, speed limit, and geographical boundaries. Also if your car is stolen, UVO can assist the police with recovering it quickly.

Power

Kia calls it Soul Power and you’re going to love it. We’re not talking about the kind of power you need to drive a quarter mile in under ten seconds. That’s an entirely different kind of car. By power, we mean how you power the car, or in the Soul EV’s case, charge it.

With three ways to charge the EV — including standard DC Fast Charging — you can recharge at the office, your home, or any public station. The 6.6 kW onboard charger maximizes throughput for faster charging. And the ultra-dense battery provides energy in an extremely efficient package, providing an extended driving range and more room inside the cabin.

Eco-Friendly Materials

The Soul EV waves its environmentally friendly flag in more ways than one. Exclusively bio-sourced materials means that it shows its eco-friendly roots beyond that of reducing carbon emissions. It is also surprisingly comfortable. Split-folding rear seats provide plenty of cargo space and a number of configurations for storage. From the available leather seats to the distinctive stitching, the beautiful details make it fashionable and functional.

Kia has been impressing customers and critics for decades, and they’ve really raised the bar with the 2018 Soul EV, where innovation meets style. From its roomy interior to its hip looks, from its charging power to the UVO features, it’s an awesome car and one that deserves all the attention it’s getting. We at Green Kia invite you into the dealership to take one for a test drive and see for yourself what the hype is all about.
