Kia's European Vice President of Marketing has confirmed the company will offer an electric version of the 2014 Soul.

Speaking at the launch of the facelifted Sorento, Benny Oeyen said "Kia's all-new Soul will come to Europe as an electric car." Oeyen also confirmed the next-generation Soul is expected to debut early next year.
