The Kia Soul is a subcompact SUV (B-segment in Europe) manufactured by the South Korean marque Kia Corporation. This model emerged from the California design center, and was first shown at the 2008 Paris Motor Show. The Soul has a total of 3 generations. Since 2014, the Korean brand has also been selling an electric version of this SUV called Soul EV.
With this vehicle, Kia was able to correctly anticipate the changing trend in the market and the commitment to SUV-type bodies. The first generation was criticized for its interiors and its harshness when driving, but it also served the Korean brand as a base on which to build a new line of vehicles.
In 2013, Kia launched the second generation. For this, they followed the design line of the Kia Track’ster. This version shared a platform with the second generation Kia Ceed. In 2017, shortly before the end of this stage, Kia updated this model with new engines and the occasional aesthetic change. In addition, in 2013, Kia began working with the Soul to create its electric version. The model finally went on sale in 2015 under the name Kia Soul EV.
The third and current generation of the Soul went on sale in 2020. Its engine range is somewhat more limited. The brand relaunched an electric version this generation, which in many markets is called Kia eSoul. In some countries, Kia has stopped selling the Soul to bet on other vehicles.
