Motors has unveiled new images of its bold new all-electric concept car, due to
be revealed at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show to be held from March 7 to March 17,
2019 (Press days March 5 and 6).
A visual embodiment of its desire to move forward into the exciting world of electrification, this concept is the company’s first pure electric four-door passenger car. Intentionally designed to not sit within the industry’s predefined vehicle categories, it coherently draws together elements of a muscular sports utility vehicle, a sleek and athletic family saloon and a versatile and spacious crossover.
reinterpreting Kia’s iconic ‘tiger nose’ grille, the concept features a bold
new illuminated ‘tiger mask’ that encircles the headlamp units to create a
distinctive and recognizable lighting motif, one which instantly marks this out
as a Kia for the 21st Century. A single sheet of glass is used for both the
windscreen and roof, flowing from the base of the A-pillar and over the cabin
to create a vast sky-window, before tapering into a double-bubble over the rear
passenger compartment. The rakishness of the car’s high shoulders and narrow
glasshouse is further enhanced by an illustrated dynamic streak that draws the
eye from the A-pillar to the C-pillar.
Kia Soul EV to make European
Soul EV joins Kia’s growing range of hybrid, plug-in hybrid and electric cars
with a choice of two long-range, zero-emission powertrains. The car will offer
a fully-electric driving range of up to 280 miles from a single charge. There
is 25 per cent greater cell-energy density with new-generation battery
chemistry, besides more power and faster acceleration from new electric motors
– and up to 30 per cent more energy efficient than Europe’s current
best-selling electric car
all-new Kia Soul EV brings long-range, zero-tailpipe emissions power to the
urban crossover class. The third globally-sold electric vehicle from Kia Motors
will make its European debut at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show to be held from
March 7 to March 17, 2019 (Press days March 5 and 6).
profile, the Soul EV’s boxy silhouette remains clear, yet subtle adjustments to
its proportions and details give the car a more confident appearance. At 4,195
mm in length, the Soul EV is 55 mm longer than the car it replaces – with a
2,600-mm wheelbase (+30 mm) and a 15-mm longer front overhang. This effect is
enhanced visually by the newly-designed rear pillar and shape of its
glasshouse. The windows taper towards the rear of the car, with a fin-shaped
rear pillar replacing what was previously a sharp angle at the base of the rear
windows. The shape of the glasshouse draws the eyes along the side of the car
as the bodywork kicks up towards the roof, ending in a matte black panel
bearing the Soul name. This effectively balances the visual ‘weight’ of the
rear with the longer front end. The Soul EV is finished with a unique
five-spoke 17-inch alloy wheel design.
