At the Auto Expo 2020, Kia e-Soul was displayed under the form of the long-range version. The electric crossover is currently on sales at the international market.
In terms of design, the Kia e-Soul has a strong SUV influence on its exterior looks. It features a boxy and bulky styling with a high and upright stance. On the front-fascia, the e-Soul gets full-LED headlamps. The rear end shows some unique takes including the futuristically-styled LED foglights along with the LED taillight. To the side profile, the electric crossover employs a set of 17-inch machined alloy wheels. Provided as optional design features, the skid plates, and body cladding will make the design appear even more funky and robust.
The interior of the Kia e-Soul is dominated by curves and roundish elements. It gets a rounded centre console where the touchscreen infotainment system sits next to the round multifunction steering wheel.
Kia e-Soul interior flaunts some premium features including sound mood lighting, heated & ventilated front seats, wireless charger for smartphone, heads-up display, and a Harman Kardon sound system.
The powertrain of this electric vehicle comprises an electric motor and a 64kWh battery pack. The peak power and torque figures delivered by the motor are 204 PS and 395 Nm respectively. This setting can allow the car to deliver a driving range of 452 km. If using the DC fast charger, the battery pack can be charged up to 80% in 42 minutes. The Kia e-Soul can run from idle to 100 km/h in 7.6 seconds.
At the moment, Kia has no plan to introduce the e-Soul for our market since electric cars are not preferred by Indian customers. Also, EV infrastructure in the country is lacking currently. For more update about the Auto Industry, be sure to follow IndianAuto.
