TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 Kia Soul EV is the kind of electric vehicle we like to see. It’s fun, capable, and inconspicuous. We just wish it were easier to find at dealers. The 2018 Ford Focus Electric is a competent battery-powered compact hatchback, but it’s low-volume, not available everywhere, and its cargo bay should have been redesigned years ago.
