Finding a great subcompact all-electric crossover SUV can be a tough task, but have you checked out the 2016 Kia Soul EV? It's newer to the game, but you wouldn't know it. The Soul EV is a standout, and we have five reasons why you can kiss the gas pump good-bye.

Same Sharp Soul

The Soul EV looks like any other Soul, sporty and bold. It has standard 16-inch aerodynamic alloys, heated side mirrors and automatic headlamps. Of course, no emissions means no exhaust pipe or front grille, so it's very clean from head to toe. Unlike others, there's no compromising on style.

Innovative Technology

Kia went the whole nine yards and then some, giving the Soul EV clever capability. With the available UVO EV services system, you can check your battery level or adjust the car climate from your phone. The Soul EV has smart and efficient ways of connecting you to your car.

Eco Interior

Kia matched the eco-friendly attitude under the hood with its interior. The Soul EV has 19 parts of its interior mass composed of bio-based materials. Certain Earth-friendly plastics are made from corn and sugarcane. Even the interior paint is free of benzene and other harmful chemicals. Kia went all the way with the EV.

No More Pump

It takes some adjusting, but when you realize all you need is a charge, it's a great feeling. With an Environmental Protection Agency best-in-class 93-mile estimated driving range, the Soul EV has an edge on other electric vehicles on the market. With the standard DC fast charge port, an empty battery can charge to 80 percent in a flash of 30 minutes, getting you on your way quickly.

Cabin Space

You can find other electric vehicles out there, but you'll be hard-pressed to find one with this type of space. The EV has 60/40-split rear seats that allow for a 49.5-cu ft. cargo hold. The battery placement allows for a generous cabin; even 6-footers will be pleasantly surprised. The Soul EV is just like having any other Soul: functional and versatile, minus stopping at the pump.

Autotrader Says

The future of driving is here, and you don't want to be late to the electric party. With an incredible mileage range and undeniable soul and style, the 2016 Kia Soul EV is an incredible electric choice.
