Kia has announced that they’re expanding the Soul EV, a battery electric version of the Kia Soul compact, into four more states. These additional states are New York, new Jersey, Connecticut, and Maryland. This brings the total to ten states where dealerships will have the Soul EV available to buyers.
Other states already selling the electric Soul are California, Georgia, Oregon, Texas, Washington, and Hawaii. The four new states will have nineteen dealerships between them that are certified to sell, service, and offer free charging to Kia Soul EV buyers.
“Kia’s sales strategy for the Soul EV has been progressive and pragmatic since its launch late last year,” said Orth Hedrick, vice president of product planning, KMA. “California consumers created a high level of demand, and the state’s large infrastructure made it a natural place to start. Between consumer reaction to the Soul EV and growing infrastructure programs in states such as these in the Northeast, this is a logical – and exciting – next step in our rollout plan.”
