Those on the hunt for a fully electric SUV don’t have to look too far: Kia has its playful Soul available. Its 109-horsepower electric motor is hooked up to a 30.0-kWh battery for a range of about 170 kilometres. It takes five hours to recharge using a 240V outlet. For the more conventional versions, there are three gas engines ranging from 130 to 201 horsepower. A few rather flashy colours add to the Soul’s fun side.
