Not only is the Soul EV considered environmentally-friendly because it is powered by electricity and it is emission-free, but the vehicle’s interior is also very “green.” In 2014, the Kia Soul was 2016 Kia Soul EV-e interiorthe first vehicle to earn a UL Environment Validation for Bio-Based Organic Carbon Content for 10% of its interior plastic. The interior uses five different eco-friendly materials for the interior paint, fabrics, and compartments.
The Soul EV-e is equipped with six speakers and an FM/AM radio, and is equipped with SiriusXM for driver’s who have a SiriusXM subscription.
The car’s exterior maintains the original look of the Kia Soul, but slight changes have been made to keep the car as aerodynamic as possible. The battery-powered system is located under the floorboard so owners have maximum room inside the car. Additionally, since there is no engine, there is no need for a front grille, which improves wind flow around the car. The car’s tires are slimmer, resulting in less drag when in motion.
While the Kia is designed to be light, the Kia Soul does not lack safety features. Kia takes safety as a very serious matter and unlike some other brands, Kia offers the same safety features across all of the Soul’s different trims. Among these safety features are dual front and side airbags and full-length side curtain airbags. In case of an accident, the front and rear crumple zones and side impact protection beams help keep damage to a minimum. Rear door safety locks help parents keep children from accidentally opening the car while it is moving.

The starting MSRP of the 2016 Kia Soul EV-e is $31,950, but after the $7,500 tax credit, the cost of the car drops down to $24,450.
