The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.2
6.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Kia Soul EV offers more space for people and cargo than many other small battery-electric cars, but you can only buy it in limited regions and it's no longer top of the non-Tesla range list. The 2017 Volkswagen e-Golf is a Golf that happens to run only on electricity, but its range is now sub-par.
