Kia Soul EV wins 2015 MotorWeek Drivers’ Choice Award February 16th, 2015
Kia’s first all-electric zero emissions vehicle for global markets, Soul EV, has been named the Best Eco-Friendly Vehicle at the MotorWeek’s 34th annual Drivers’ Choice Awards. Each year MotorWeek produces a list of winners for different car categories after analyzing industry trends, new products, and technologies, to provide car buyers with a reliable source of information. MotorWeek editors noticed the Soul EV’s roomy interior and cargo space, on top of its best-in-class range, in picking it as the best eco-friendly vehicle.
Motorweek’s host and executive producer John Davis commented on Soul EV’s practicality and style, stating that “it has more power and range compared to other affordable all-electric vehicles. Plus, its funky style makes driving the Kia Soul EV really cool.” While retaining the iconic design of its gasoline-powered sibling, the Soul EV is offered in four color choices and with premium amenities such as navigation with an eight-inch touchscreen and a 6.6kW on-board charger. This award is a tremendous honor, coming as it did from such a respected source.
The latest accolade for Soul EV comes on the heels of recent recognition in Canada and Norway, being named as the ‘Best New City Car’ and ‘Car of the Year’, respectively.
