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.
