Soul Power.

Meet the charge port: the newest way to fuel your Soul. With three ways to charge, including standard DC Fast Charging, you can recharge at home, the office, and any of the thousands of public stations. The 6.6 kW onboard charger maximizes throughput for faster charging. And the ultra-dense battery features more energy in a more efficient package, giving you a longer driving range and greater cabin room.

High Energy. Low Profile.

More energy-dense than most EV batteries, the Soul EV's slim lithium-ion polymer battery is packed with 27 kWh of energy to maximize driving range. We placed it right under the floor to give you more cabin space and better handling with a lower center of gravity. Add that to the instant torque from the electric motor and you've got one exhilarating ride.

Fast Charging Comes Standard.

Unlike many EVs, all Soul EVs come standard with the quickest available charge port, the DC Fast Charge, which supplies an 80% charge to an empty battery in about 30 minutes. That's in addition to two more convenient ways to charge. Whether you're starting your day, leaving the office, or enjoying your road trip, you can always find a full charge.

120v

Charge anywhere using the same 120-volt outlet that you use to power your home appliances. Plug your Soul EV straight into the wall with the included outlet charger. It's the most accessible way to juice up.

240v

240-volt chargers are mainstream and high-power, taking as little as 4-5 hours to reach total charge. Install one in your home for overnight charging, and use the available UVO EV Services app or MyUVO.com to schedule charge times when electricity rates are at their lowest.

DC Fast

The 480-volt Direct-Current (DC) Fast Charge is the quickest way to power up. Reaching an 80% charge in about 30 minutes with a 50kW charger, the DC Fast Charge replenishes your battery in the time it takes you to eat lunch. And unlike many other EVs, the Soul EV comes standard with a CHAdeMO DC Fast Charge port.

Fast Charging Comes Standard.

With over 26,000 240-volt charging outlets available nationwide and a rapidly growing DC Fast Charge infrastructure, public charging is more convenient than ever. Easily find a station via the available in-dash UVO EV Services telematics system, the free UVO EV Services app, or one of many online resources like MyUVO.com or Plugshare.

Comfort At Unexpected Levels.

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 modern interior looks, feels, and does good.

Made Eco-Friendliest.

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.

Bio Based

From headliner to trim to carpet, the Soul EV's earth-friendly plastics are made from plant-based materials like sugar cane and corn, all validated by UL Environment.

The sound system, vent, and floor console are covered in BTX-free and water-borne paints, reducing levels of harmful volatile organic compounds (VOC) for better air quality in the cabin.

Roomier Than The Rest.

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.

Electrifying Style.

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. And with the eStatus Light that tracks your charge status, and standard eco-friendly seats with contrast stitching for stylish comfort, the Soul EV interior offers a bold new design with a purpose.

eStatus

Plug in your Soul EV and the eStatus Charge Light illuminates with 3 light levels to tell you when you reach full charge. A clear view through the windshield lets you quickly check your status from outside your car.

Eco Cloth

The Eco Cloth seat fabric is made out of plant-based materials like sugar cane and corn. It's soft and durable, so there's no tradeoff in quality for being eco-friendly.

Console

The translucent white, double-injection molding provides a 3D effect for eye-catching style. And, in Soul EV form, it's made from bio-based materials.

Next-Level Tech.

From the debut of the Organic LED (OLED) 3.5-inch display to the climate-control technologies that maximize driving range, the Soul EV comes loaded with energy-smart innovations. The free smartphone UVO EV Services app and advanced in-car telematics system make managing your EV simple, no matter where you are or where you plan to go.

Connect to your Soul.

Connect the Soul EV to your mobile device with the available UVO EV Services system and free UVO EV Services app. Receive battery-status alerts from the comfort of your couch. Unlock the driver door and adjust in-car climate before you even leave the house. With UVO, you get intuitive control right at your fingertips.

Set Charge

With Charging Schedules on your smartphone and tablet, plug in anytime and charge only when you want to. Schedule charging during off-peak hours to take advantage of the lowest rates.

Heat/Cool

Pre-heat or pre-cool your car while it's still charging. Set the time and temperature, through the in-car system or from your smartphone, and the Soul EV will power the HVAC system with the charger instead of the battery.

(Un)Lock

Never worry about forgetting to lock your doors. With the free UVO EV Services app, remotely lock all doors or unlock just the driver door with the push of a button. You can even see when a door or the rear hatch is left open.

Tech Smart.

It's the command center that does it all. Get real-time data on your driving range. Schedule charge times or find a station. From the intuitive distance to empty (DTE) display to UVO EV Services features like voice-command navigation, the user-friendly console with 8-inch display keeps you connected and in control while on the go.

Comfort for the Long Haul.

Driving range increases when you use less energy, as heating and cooling can be a drain on the battery. The Soul EV's three climate-control technologies help monitor and manage energy use so that you can drive farther, comfortably.
