Virtual Engine Sound System
To help pedestrians hear you coming, the Soul EV
generates fine-tuned warning sound.

Airbag system

Driver, passenger, side and curtain airbags
A 6-airbag system offers protection for all occupants and can be effective
at reducing injuries from certain collisions.
Vehicle Stability Management (VSM)
VSM helps ensure your car stays stable when simultaneously braking and cornering
or during rapid acceleration – especially on wet, slippery and rough roads.
Hill-start Assist Control (HAC)
HAC prevents the vehicle from rolling backward when at standstill on an upward inline by gently applying the brakes for up to two seconds while moving your foot from the brake pedal to the accelerator.
Hill-start Assist Control (HAC)
Brake Assist System (BAS)
BAS greatly reduces the stopping distance during sudden braking situations by applying maximum brake force when needed.
Brake Assist System (BAS)
Electronic Stability Control (ESC)
Electronic Stability Control reduces skidding to help maintain control in the event you have to brake or swerve suddenly.

Battery capacity

Max. power output

27kWh Battery capacity
Lithium-ion polymer battery supports a range of 212 km.
Its position gives the Soul EV stability by lowering the
centre of gravity.
81.4kW Max. power output
The efficient, lightweight 81.4 kW, 285 Nm permanent
magnet synchronous motor keeps ample acceleration
on tap from standstill or when needed for overtaking at
moderate speeds.

Battery (Lithium-ion polymer)

  • * Capacity (kWh): 27
  • * Power (kW): 90

Electric motor

  • * Max. Power Output (kW): 81.4
  • * Max. Torque (Nm): 285
Energy-efficiency heat pump system
Heat pump systems are more efficient compared to conventional
electric heater-based system. The Soul EV heat pump system increases driving distance by using recovered waste heat from
the coolant water for the electric powertrain.
Energy-saving individual air-conditioning system
A selective air-conditioning zone corresponding to driver
seating position limits air-conditioning to the driver only, lowering
the amount of energy consumed for unoccupied zones and
increasing the driving distance of the Soul EV.


Standard charge
(6.6 kW / 100% state of charge)
Fast charge
 (100 kW / 80% state of charge)
or 33 min. (50 kW / 80% state of charge)
Charge status indicator
At the centre of the dash, below the windscreen, a semicircular
display of three LED sections lets you check charging status from
outside the vehicle.
Charge port
As you face the front of the Soul EV, the right side of the grille
slides to the centre, revealing a normal AC charge port and
a fast DC charge port. A charging port light provides visibility
in the dark.


Cargo capacity

Cargo under storage compartment
Under the luggage floor, a partitioned tray lets you stow valuables,
tools and charging cables.
60:40 split-folding rear seats
To accommodate more combinations of passengers and
cargo, the rear seatbacks split 60:40 and fold flat for maximum
