Home and Destination Charging (0 -> 100%)

Charging is possible by using a regular wall plug or a charging station. Public charging is always done through a charging station. How fast the EV can charge depends on the charging station (EVSE) used and the maximum charging capacity of the EV. The table below shows all possible options for charging the Kia Soul EV 64 kWh. Each option shows how fast the battery can be charged from empty to full.

Type 2 (Mennekes - IEC 62196)
Charging Point Max. Power Power Time Rate
Wall Plug (2.3 kW) 230V / 1x10A 2.3 kW 32h45m 7 mph
1-phase 16A (3.7 kW) 230V / 1x16A 3.7 kW 20h30m 11 mph

3-phase 32A (22 kW) 230V / 1x31A 7.2 kW † 10h30m 22 mph

† = Limited by on-board charger, vehicle cannot charge faster.

Rapid Charging (10 -> 80%)

Rapid charging enables longer journeys by adding as much range as possible in the shortest amount of time. Charging power will decrease significantly after 80% state-of-charge has been reached. A typical rapid charge therefore rarely exceeds 80% SoC. The rapid charge rate of an EV depends on the charger used and the maximum charging power the EV can handle. The table below shows all details for rapid charging the Kia Soul EV 64 kWh.

  • Max. Power: maximum power provided by charge point
  • Avg. Power: average power provided by charge point over a session from 10% to 80%
  • Time: time needed to charge from 10% to 80%
  • Rate: average charging speed over a session from 10% to 80%
Combined Charging System (CCS Combo 2)
Charging Point Max. Power Avg. Power Time Rate
CCS (50 kW DC) 49 kW † 45 kW † 63 min 150 mph

All about the Kia Soul EV 64 kWh

Pricing

The Kia Soul EV 64 kWh has an estimatedn On The Road Price (OTR) of £37,295. The OTR Price includes VAT, first year of VED, vehicle first registration fee, number plates and delivery. The Kia Soul EV 64 kWh is eligible for a Plug-In Car Grant (PICG) of £3,500. The grant will be applied to the invoice of the car. The OTR Price including the PICG for the Kia Soul EV 64 kWh is £33,795.

Drivetrain and Performance

The Kia Soul EV 64 kWh is a full electric vehicle (BEV). The maximum power of the Kia Soul EV 64 kWh is 150 kW (201 hp). The maximum torque is 291 lb-ft. The Kia Soul EV 64 kWh is front wheel drive and can accelerate from 0 to 62 miles per hour in 7.9 seconds. The top speed is 104 mph.

Battery and Charging

The battery of the Kia Soul EV 64 kWh has an estimated total capacity of 67.1 kWh. The usable capacity is 64 kWh. An estimated range of about 230 miles is achievable on a fully charged battery. The actual range will however depend on several factors including climate, terrain, use of climate control systems and driving style.

For example: sustaining high speeds in cold weather could result in a range of around 160 mi. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the range to around 345 mi.

Charging is done using a Type 2 connector and the on-board charger has a maximum power of 7.2 kW. This charges a fully depleted battery back to full in around 10 hours 30 minutes. Charging the car using a regular wall plug will take around 32 hours 45 minutes.

Rapid charging is possible through a CCS connection. The maximum rapid charge power is 77 kW. The battery can't be charged continuously at this power. In an average rapid charge session the average charge power will be around 64 kW. This charges the battery from 10% to 80% in around 45 minutes. A rapid charge like this will add about 160 miles of range.

Energy Consumption

The estimated combined (motorway and city) energy consumption of the Kia Soul EV 64 kWh is about 275 Wh per mile. By comparison, this energy consumption is the equivalent of a fuel consumption of 145 mpg in a traditional petrol car.

The actual energy consumption will depend on several factors including climate, terrain, use of climate control systems and driving style. For example: sustaining high speeds in cold weather could result in an energy use of around 400 Wh per mile. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the efficiency to about 185 Wh per mile.

CO2 Emission

The Kia Soul EV 64 kWh emits no CO2 during driving. This only includes direct emissions from the vehicle itself. The energy needed to charge the battery might have been (partly) generated by the use of fossil fuels. Vehicles with an internal combustion engine will always emit CO2 during driving. Additionally, CO2 is emitted during the production and transport of fossil fuels.

Preceding model

The model shown on this page is the successor of the Kia Soul EV, which was available from October 2017 until April 2019. The previous model was £6800 less expensive, had 120 mi less range, 42% slower acceleration and was similar in energy consumption.
