It’s a thrilling and responsive drive with 210 lb.-ft. of instant torque. We designed a smooth electric motor for quiet efficiency and engineered a state-of-the-art regenerative braking system that helps recharge the battery. The result is satisfying EV performance with maximized range and assured handling.
The Soul EV’s electric motor offers 109 horsepower. Its unique, multi-layer magnet design provides quiet, smooth-power performance. And its lightweight design helps deliver swift acceleration for an exciting and efficient drive.
Every part of the Soul EV is designed with efficiency in mind—even braking. Every time you decelerate or go downhill, the regenerative braking system recovers kinetic energy that would otherwise be lost. That energy goes straight to recharging the battery.
With an electric drivetrain, there’s no revving up or switching gears. The Soul EV’s electric motor delivers 210 lb.-ft. of instant torque, giving you immediate responsiveness and smooth, dynamic acceleration the moment you put your foot on the pedal.

The Soul EV and iconic Soul were redesigned together to provide exceptional comfort and maximum flexibility. The Soul EV’s split-folding rear seats offer ample cargo space and a variety of storage options. And the under-floor battery means plenty of interior space for your friends. From the exclusive bio-sourced materials and available leather seating all the way down to the distinctive highlight stitching—this interior looks, feels, and does good.
What does it take to be the first ever vehicle to receive UL Environment recognition? The rigorous evaluation of materials and manufacturing. Nineteen parts of its total interior mass are composed of bio-based materials, earning the Soul EV the first and only UL environmental claim validation in the industry. Plus, the Soul EV is more than freedom from the pump and harmful emissions. On certain interior parts, we used paint that’s free of harmful chemicals like benzene so that you can breathe cleaner air.
With the Soul EV, you don’t have to compromise interior space or versatility. The 60/40 split-folding rear seats offer up to 49.5 cubic feet of cargo volume, and the hidden luggage under tray makes storing your 120-volt charging cord easy. From the ample headroom and legroom to the flexible cargo space, the Soul EV is made for hauling friends and all your gear.
When you feel the smooth grip of the standard heated steering wheel and queue up your favorite playlist on the six-speaker sound system, you know you’re in a Soul.
