Cost of charge for the Kia Soul EV version : 27 kWh
Battery of the Kia Soul EV version : 27 kWh
The Kia Soul EV is equipped with an advanced power supply including polymer lithium-ion battery cells supplied by SK Innovation. The battery pack, with a prime battery cell energy density of 200 Wh/kg, is the result of a three-year joint development program between Kia Motors Corporation and SK Innovation in Korea.
Kia engineers have developed the exceptional 27 kWh power supply that includes 192 polymer lithium-ion battery cells in eight modules. The pack incorporates state-of-the-art thermal control technology to keep individual cells at optimal temperature and structural design to improve impact resistance. Nickel-rich NCM (nickel-cobalt-manganese) cathode material is used in mass production of battery cells for Soul EV. Energy density, which depends on the cathode’s capacity, is an essential performance factor determining the range of electric vehicles. Using the advanced cellular energy density of its battery, the Soul EV offers a range of about 200 km on a single charge.
