The Benefits of Going With Kia’s Fully Electric Models

Americans spend anywhere between $2,000 and $4,000 on gasoline per annum. While electricity isn't free either, with fully electric vehicles (EVs), the costs of running these eco-friendly cars come down drastically. Maintaining electric vehicles is blissfully simple too since they don't require a lot of the expensive tune-ups that their gasoline counterparts are often subject to. Here are some additional benefits that 2 of Kia’s most popular EVs provide.

2019 Kia Niro EV – Battery Size: 64 kWh
Thanks to its excellent price tag, the 2019 Niro is perfect for car shoppers on a budget. The handsome 4-door-hatchback, 5-passenger vehicle has a trendy facade, provides smooth handling and an exceptionally quiet ride, and boasts a combined fuel economy of 112 MPGe. With an impressive range of up to 239 miles, the vehicle can be recharged to 80% in a little more than an hour on a DC fast charger, so it makes those lovely weekend getaways easy. And with great acceleration and plenty of torque, the Niro makes highway driving a breeze. Also, this hatchback comes with a standard 10 year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty.

2019 Kia Soul EV – Battery Size: 30 kWh
Great for first-time car owners, the 2019 Kia Soul is a small car packed with an array of great features. From its safety and driver assists, great fuel efficiency, and lengthy standard warranty, this sleek hatchback provides exceptional value. Delivering a combined fuel economy of 108 MPGe, this five-passenger vehicle comes in two variants with plenty of standard amenities packed into its comfortable cabin.

The 2019 Soul delivers 109 horsepower and has a range of a little over 110 miles. While a traditional 120-volt outlet takes up to 33 hours to recharge the battery, a 240-volt outlet decreases that time to a little more than 5 hours. But with DC fast-charging port, it takes just 45 minutes. Driving wise, the 2019 Soul EV offers plenty of low-end torque coupled with responsive braking and great suspension for a comfortable ride. Overall, the 2019 Kia soul is a great value buy. And with a larger, more capable battery, the all-new 2020 Kia Soul EV fares even better.
