The third-generation Kia Soul arrived in UK showrooms in 2020, and for the first time it’s available only in electric guise. Like its full-electric sister model, the Kia e-Niro, the Soul EV boasts a long range (a claimed 280 miles), giving it the potential to make electric car ownership truly appealing. Do its funky looks and SUV practicality give it the edge over electric rivals such as the Hyundai Kona Electric? Find out in our full Kia Soul EV review.
