2021 Kia Soul EV: Another Small Electric Car Bows Out of the U.S. Market

The Kia Soul EV is an all-electric version of the quirky and spacious Soul crossover. The Soul EV offers a peppy performance, a generous driving range, and a host of features and technology. The Soul EV competes with other small electric cars such as the Chevrolet Bolt EV, the Hyundai Kona Electric, and the Nissan Leaf Plus.

The Soul EV was supposed to arrive in the U.S. market for the 2020 model year, but it was delayed several times due to battery supply issues and low demand. Kia eventually decided to cancel the Soul EV for the U.S. market altogether, leaving only the gas-powered Soul as an option for American buyers. The Soul EV will still be sold in other markets such as Canada and Europe.

The 2021 Kia Soul EV is a casualty of the competitive and challenging electric car market in the U.S. While it had a lot of potential and appeal, it faced several obstacles that prevented it from reaching its target audience. The Soul EV will be missed by those who appreciate its unique style and practicality, but it will also be remembered as a missed opportunity for Kia to expand its electric car portfolio.
