Kia Announces Soul EV Base And Plus MSRP Prices
We have known a lot about the all-electric 2015 Kia Soul EV for a while, but the price was still a mystery.
Kia Motors America cleared that up today.
The all-new Soul EV will come in a pair of trims, Base and Plus, with a starting price of $33,700 for the Base and $35,700 for the Plus models.
These prices do not include a $7,500 federal tax rebate.
The lease price for the new Kia Soul EV is expected to come in at around $249 per month.
It also delivers an MPGe of 92 miles on the highway and 120 in the city, with a combined 105 miles.
Kia also made automotive history by having the Soul EV become the first vehicle to be honored with environmental validation by Underwriters Laboratory (UL) for its innovative use of bio-based materials.
The combination of the iconic style of the all electric Soul crossover vehicle and best in class electronic technology makes Kia confident that they are about to deliver a product that consumers will love.
Soul EV Base Pricing

Every single Soul EV also comes with the UVO eServices system, which will include battery status delivered in real time, as well as a display that shows you were the nearest charging stations are given your current destination.
The UVO smartphone app is free and delivers another great set of features, such as the ability to preset charging time and level ratios, not to mention the option of setting the temperature in the cabin using remote control HVAC presets.
