According to a recent report, the Kia Soul EV will be launched early next year and offer a 200 km (124 miles) range.

We've already heard rumors that Kia is developing a Soul EV and new details are starting to emerge about the model.

Kia World is reporting the Soul EV will be sold globally and feature a battery that will enable it to travel up to 200 km (124 miles) on a single charge. There's no word on how much power the electric motor will produce, but it will reportedly be enough to allow the car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in less than 12 seconds and hit a top speed of 140 km/h (87 mph).

The Soul EV is expected to go on sale in the first half of 2014 and pricing is expected to start at 40 million KRW ($35,490 / €27,480).
