Soul EV Interior
Inside the All-New Soul EV the fun continues with its high-quality, spacious interior, cleverly designed seating, stylish fascia and inspiring innovations in technology and sound with the premium Harman Kardon sound system.
The highly visible instrument cluster features a 7" OLED display delivering essential information such as the distance covered and how far you can drive before the next recharge is due.
The high-definition 10.25" TFT-LCD multi-language navigation system offers an advanced split-screen function enabling you to view map directions, weather and compass, as well as information about the battery status, available range and next charging station location. The home screen can also be customised with a basic or advanced layout. What’s more, the screen offers Bluetooth multi-connection, so two devices can be connected at the same time – one for conventional connection and one for audio streaming.
Soul EV Range and Output
The All-New Soul EV puts the charge back into driving electric by making it fun, stylish and good for the environment all at the same time. From the moment you press the start button you can look forward to a responsive electric engine boasting a maximum acceleration from 0 to 60mph in 7.6 seconds and a maximum speed of 109mph. Additionally, the driving distance available on a single charge is 280 miles.
Heat Pump system The All-New Soul EV heat pump system helps save energy and increase the driving range by using recovered waste heat emitted from the coolant water for the electric powertrain.
You can use the convenient 10.25” touch screen to set the time to recharge your All-New Soul EV – for example, if you want to take advantage of cheaper night-time tariffs.
Located under the cabin floor, the efficient, lightweight All-New Soul EV battery offers two flexible and energy-efficient solutions.
To ensure highly efficient driving and further increase the battery range, the new All-New Soul EV offers next-generation regenerative braking with two different modes to suit the driving conditions. By selecting ‘Single Pedal’ driving or holding the left paddle shift lever behind the steering wheel for a minimum of 0.5 seconds, the car can be decelerated to a standstill without activating the brake pedal. Alternatively, releasing the paddle or activating the right paddle shift lever returns the system to regular mode.
Soul EV Safety and Assistance
Even though the All-New Soul EV is all about adventure and fun, it’s good to know that you’re constantly being protected too with Kia’s ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) – a series of intelligent safety innovations that help reduce many of the inherent dangers and stresses of driving on today’s roads so as to make every journey hassle-free and more enjoyable.
Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA)
The All-New Soul EV uses Kia’s FCA system to avoid or mitigate accidents. The system monitors vehicle speed and the distance between the car and other vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians, and will warn the driver of any potential collision risk by activating a visual alert. Additionally, the steering wheel will give a sensory response; and if there is no driver reaction, the car will brake automatically.
Blind-Spot Collision Warning (BCW)
The Blind-Spot Collision Warning system has radar sensors that monitor your blind spots, and warns you of oncoming cars by displaying a symbol in the side-view mirror. Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist Rear (BCA-R) The BCA-R system uses radar sensors to monitor the area to the left and right of your car and warn you or even actively apply the brake if there’s traffic approaching on either side.
Smart Cruise Control (SCC)
Using a camera and radar sensor at the front, SCC regulates both the vehicle speed and the distance to the car in front. If the vehicle ahead picks up the pace, the All-New Soul EV accelerates up to the set speed, and if the vehicle in front slows down and the predetermined safe distance cannot be maintained, the system will reduce the speed, or even stop the car. A helpful feature, particularly in stop-and-go traffic.
Lane Keeping Assist (LKAS) with DAW and HBA
If you start drifting out of your lane, LKAS alerts you and even steers you back to your original position, while if you lose concentration when driving the ‘Driver Attention Warning’ (DAW) system will emit an audible alert and display a warning symbol. Additionally, the ‘High Beam Assist’ (HBA) feature automatically switches to low beam to avoid dazzling other drivers at night and then automatically switches back again.
Lane Follow Assist (LFA)
LFA controls acceleration, braking and steering depending on the vehicles in front. This makes driving in traffic jams easier and safer. The system uses camera and radar sensors to maintain a safe distance to the preceding vehicle and monitors road markings to keep your car in the centre of your lane. LFA works between 0 and 80mph.
