The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Kia Soul EV compares well to other small battery-electric cars, and its interior volume and slightly higher range give it an edge—but you can only buy one in limited areas. There's still no direct competition for the 2016 Tesla Model S, which offers elegant design, 240 miles or more of all-electric range, and jaw-dropping acceleration in the higher-end models. It's one of a kind.
