YORK, England - October 10, 2015: Since the Kia Soul EV's UK launch in
October 2014 it has consistently impressed with its class leading
homologated range of 132 miles, battery density of 200 Wh/kg, high level of
equipment, excellent driving experience and everyday practicality.

To showcase the Soul EV’s competitive attributes, Kia Motors joined forces
with influential motoring journalist, Simon McBride, to put it to the
ultimate test – a zero emissions race across UK counties, against an
electric train.

The task involved driving from York castle to Carlisle castle using
electricity alone, a 122 mile direct route by road and a mainline blast by
train. Only three rules applied, castle to castle, electric power only and
any point to point route was permitted.

The video, which accurately outlines the routes and tracks each journey from
point to point, gives an exciting perspective into how all-electric cars can
be taken out of their day to day environment and challenged to deliver a
variation of driver needs and journeys.
