Soul EV Takes Home 2015 ‘MotorWeek’ Drivers’ Choice Award

The eco-friendly 2015 Kia Soul EV won the Drivers’ Choice Award from “MotorWeek,” a PBS show that analyzes trends, new products and new automotive technology. “MotorWeek’s” awards can be used as a car-shopping guide for new vehicle customers.

The 2015 Kia Soul EV impressed “MotorWeek’s” judges with its practicality, design, cargo space, interior room and rear seat leg room (more than other EV competitors). The Soul EV also has the best range in its segment at an EPA estimated 93 miles.

“'MotorWeek’s' Best Eco-Friendly Vehicle award is a great honor from a respected source and a powerful endorsement of the Soul EV’s unique blend of range, utility, style and value,” Orth Hedrick, vice president of product planning for Kia Motors America, said.

The host and executive producer of “MotorWeek,” John Davis, noted the Soul EV’s higher power and range than its all-electric competition. He also noted that the Soul EV keeps the style of its gasoline-powered siblings. The Soul EV has a premium interior and standard amenities including navigation with eight-inch touchscreen, a 6.6kW on-board charger, CHAdeMO DC fast charge port, Rear Camera Display and a HVAC system that extends the EV’s range by minimizing energy draw.
