- Bjorn Nyland's review of the 2019 Kia e-Soul (Norway): The 2019 Kia e-Soul is the first version of the Soul EV with a 60 kiloWatt-hour battery pack. This gives about 180 miles up to 240 miles of range (or thereabouts). Lots of improvements have been made over the previous models, such as a wider infotainment screen that is more customizable. It has driver assist features like maintaining speed to the car in front. The e-Soul is longer than previous models, and that has given the cargo area a much-needed oomph in cargo space. One big concern is ground clearance, since the larger battery pack hangs lower. As a bonus, this post contains several other videos by Bjorn about the e-Soul.
