I was excited to receive information in my in-box about the KIA Soul EV. It looked like a fine alternative to waiting for my Solo EV. I “built” my model. The only real colour was “Space Green”. A pukey light and metallic green. The other “colours” were some form of grey. Then I saw the price, $45K CDN… twice the price of Solo for less car. OK, the Soul can ferry two or more twice the distance but it uses 64kWh, four times the energy to do that. That’s not efficient nor green.
Sigh. Still waiting for my new EV. The Solo, even as vapour-ware, makes other EVs pale into insignificance in my estimation. Solo meets my needs for range and efficiency and capacity.
