Kia Soul EV insurance group
The Kia Soul EV has been confirmed as sitting in insurance group 34, making it a little more expensive to cover than you average internal-combustion-engined family SUV.
Kia’s seven-year/100,000-mile warranty applies to all of its cars, including its electric offerings and their battery packs. Paint is covered for five years against corrosion.
The servicing schedule for the Soul EV sees it needing attention every 10,000 miles or 12 months, as is the case for the e-Niro. That's a shame, since other electric cars including the Nissan Leaf benefit from much longer service intervals.
Since it has zero tailpipe emissions, the pure-electric Soul EV is exempt from road tax, and will also enjoy free access to London’s Congestion Charge zone until 2025, not to mention zero company-car tax beginning in April 2020.
