system make managing your EV simple.

With Charging Schedules on your smartphone and tablet, plug in anytime and charge only when you want to. Schedule charging during off-peak hours to take advantage of the lowest rates.

ECO driving technology in the 2017 Kia Soul EV.

ECO Driving challenges you to be the most eco-friendly driver you can be. The more environment-friendly the drive, the more leaves your tree grows. Level up and make each drive greener than your last.

Comfort for
the long haul.

Driving range increases when you use less energy, as heating and cooling can be a drain on the battery. The Soul EV’s three climate-control technologies help monitor and manage energy use so that you can drive farther, comfortably.
