The new Kia e-Soul
Irish Car of the Year 2020
No more searching for petrol stations, no more oil changes, no more loud, vibrating engines and absolutely no emissions. Instead, the new Kia e-Soul gives you long-range driving with easy charging and instant acceleration in a modern atmosphere where the only thing loud is your music.
The pleasures of pure electric power come without loud engine noises and vibrations. No searching for gears: enjoy instant acceleration. Electric torque takes you from 0 to 100 km/h in just 7.6 seconds. The new Kia e-Soul boasts a top speed of 167 km/h.
Drive mode settings
Choose from Eco+, Eco, Comfort and Sport. With each drive mode you set a different level of energy consumption and performance: the system adjusts torque, speed, regeneration and climate controls to your preference.
Smart regenerative braking
Whenever you slow down, regenerative braking captures part of the car's kinetic energy and feeds it back into your battery. When Smart Cruise Control (SCC) is on, the level of regenerative braking adjusts to the pace of the vehicle ahead. Select 'Single Pedal' driving and you can brake just by lifting your foot off the accelerator.
The chic electric
Modern lines, fresh colours and high-tech details make the new Kia e-Soul stand out from the crowd. Choose from four two-tone body/roof and mirror combinations. Dedicated 17’’ alloy wheels round off the electric look.
Here's plenty of space for your own definition of comfort, style and colour. Special mood lighting changes with your music and reflects in the metal paint colour pack. Red colour pack comes with the K3. The leather trim adds sophistication to the interior of the cabin.
When it comes to illumination, the new Kia e-Soul is full of good cheer. It boasts full LED headlamps with LED daytime running lights, LED fog lamps, and LED rear combination lamps. Want more? There are also LED side indicators on the electric folding black glossy outside mirrors. See and be seen!
