2015 Kia Soul+ EV – The Most Electric Range You Can Get for Less Than a Tesla

2015 Kia Soul EV - 2 of 32If the mainstream media in America talks about battery electric cars at all, it usually has something to do with the latest outrageous pronouncement from Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk. However, unless you live in the wealthy enclaves of Silicon Valley or southern California, chances are pretty good that you’ve never even seen a Tesla Model S much less driven one. Most of the rest of us will never be able to afford a Model S even we could find a place to buy one. For the rest of us that want to drive emissions-free there are a number of very good and increasingly affordable options including South Korea’s first entry into the segment, the Kia Soul EV.


I wrote about this same topic of comparing 1970s and 80s cars to current models back in my AutoblogGreen days

The Chevette was one of the scariest cars I've ever been in. Back in college I carpooled to work with a couple of friends for a while. One guy had a Chevette and we took turns riding in the back seat which was terribly cramped and had a big driveshaft tunnel. The Chevette was a prime example of why such cars should always be built with front wheel drive unless you are doing a crazy high-performance version which the Chevette was not. One day as we approached a red light, I remember looking out the side window as we slid toward the back of a truck. As +John Voelcker says in this article, this car would never be allowed to be sold in any developed market today and that's a good thing.
