Kia’s bright sparks have new battery
THE Kia Soul EV, due to make its European debut at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show on March 4, 2014, will be powered by a Korean developed battery that has been three years in the making. With a class-leading energy density of 200 Wh/ kg, it will ‘fast charge’ in 25 minutes. The full recharge time, depending on power source, takes up to five hours. The vehicle is expected to go on sale in the UK this autumn.
