Kia is expanding the availability of the Soul EV by June to five more states including Georgia, Texas, Oregon, Washington and Hawaii. The automaker previously sold the Soul EV exclusively in California.

The reason for the expansion is in large part to the increased amount of EV infrastructure put in place, according to Kia. A combined total of 1,800 charging stations are in these new markets. The Soul EV will be available in additional markets in 2016.

Sales of the Soul EV will start in Georgia, the home of $1 billion Kia Motors Manufacturing’s assembly plant in West Point.

The KIA Soul EV is the company’s first all-electric, zero-emissions vehicle marketed outside of Korea.

The Soul EV can be plugged into any standard outlet, recharging in approximately five hours for a fully depleted battery using a standard 240v outlet, or 25 minutes on fast DC charging with 100 kW output.

    The Soul EV is a great cost and operational savings over any SUV we tested.
