There are few vehicles that offer the efficiency of an electric powertrain, while providing customers with roominess and a funky, unique style. The 2015 Kia Soul EV just happens to be one of these vehicles, which is why it comes as no surprise that it was recently named a 2015 MotorWeek Drivers’ Choice Award Winner in the Best Eco-Friendly Vehicle category.

“As the centerpiece of Kia’s Clean Mobility program, the Soul EV has the best range in its segment, EPA estimated at 93 miles, and it’s been recognized by the Underwriters Laboratories for its use of bio-based materials,” said Orth Hedrick, vice president of product planning for Kia Motors America. “MotorWeek’s Best Eco-Friend 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.”

Through a combination of roominess, plenty of cargo space, and eco-friendliness, the Soul EV manages to give consumers the best of every world. Even the choosiest consumer can find the perfect Soul EV model for them with a choice of four color choices, a comfortable interior, and a variety of standard amenities, including a navigation system with an eight-inch touchscreen, a 6.6kW on-board charger, and a fast charge port.

The Soul EV isn’t the only fuel-efficient, eco-friendly vehicle Kia has to offer, too. Stop in to Jim Shorkey Gainesville Kia today and see what other options our brand has to offer!
