Korean electric car will have a competitive price in the US
The Soul electric car manufactured by Kia Motors Corp. will have a "competitive" price of $ 33 in the US market, reports IA RUSKOR with reference to the company's press service.
The base price of an electric car is higher than that of the Chevrolet Spark and Fiat 500e, but lower than the $ 35 200 of the Ford Focus electric vehicle, which is available in the same five-seater segment. An electric car is also much cheaper than Mercedes-Benz and BMW, which cost more than $ 41 000.
Compared to the Nissan Leaf electric car, whose base model costs about $ 29 000, the Soul is more expensive, although on average, the Japanese electric car line exceeds $ 35 000.
"With the popular style and functionality, Kia is confident that Soul electric cars represent the winning combination," the company said.
Kia has already sold 104 777 units to Soul in the United States in the first eight months of this year, an increase of 26 percent.
