High energy.
Low profile.

More energy-dense than most EV batteries, the Soul EV’s slim lithium-ion polymer battery is packed with 27 kWh of energy to maximize driving range. We placed it right under the floor to give you more cabin space and better handling with a lower center of gravity. Add that to the instant torque from the electric motor and you’ve got one exhilarating ride.



Fast charging comes standard.

Unlike many EVs, all Soul EVs come standard with the quickest available charge port, the DC Fast Charge, which supplies an 80% charge to an empty battery in about 30 minutes. That’s in addition to two more convenient ways to charge. Whether you’re starting your day, leaving the office, or enjoying your road trip, you can always find a full charge.
