Definitely a new Soul EV - seen here testing at the Nürburgring in Germany. Autoblog: Next-gen Kia Soul EV spied

Also seen this quote : SpeakEV Forum : More info on 2019 Soul

... Met Johnny Smith at the Eden Project today. Says he has tested the 2019 Soul. Over 300 mile range apparently. Should be a Fully Charged show on it in November.

The new Soul EV was seen in camo charging at a local DCFC here in Jeju a couple of days ago. So it seems it will be released in Korea. The local dealer now says a 39.2kWh version with a range of 250km will be released here next year. ( No mention of the 64kWh version that everyone else is expecting.)

2020 Kia Soul EV Prototype Reveals Dashboard, Much Improved Range:
https://www.carscoops.com/2018/09/2020-kia-soul-ev-prototype-reveals-dashboard-much-improved-range/

The central display shows this prototype can drive for 437 km (271 miles) on a 92% battery charge.

Design-wise, the layout is definitely more modern, with a new steering wheel, a new, larger infotainment display, larger air vents, a redesigned climate control stack and a new center console featuring a rotary-style shifter instead of a more traditional one.

I leased a 2016 soul EV because of the cargo space. I love it!! While I am looking forward to more range, it must have room for my family and camping equipment. I would be very disappointed if the Soul EV 2020 didn't have a 240 mile range.

I sure hope that 2020 version with the 64 kWh battery is available by next September 15th when my current 2016 Soul EV's lease is due. After some cursory looks at the alternatives, we would really like to keep the overall utility and fun of the Soul. I will have a look at the Hyundai Kona however as a hedge. The Bolt is too small and while the Model 3 is lovely, it's not quite as flexible with respect to bulky stuff as the Soul (or my current ICE car - Mazda3 5-door).

That the Kona EV is supposed to be available early next year (per Hyundai web site) is encouraging....

We now know that the new Soul EV will have a 64kWh battery and will be released in Korea, USA and Europe.

Looking at the pictures and reading the specs this car seem to be almost identical to the N iro EV.

You can find more details on the 64 kWh battery pack used in the new Soul EV in this article that I wrote recently. Although this article is focused on the recently available Hyundai Kona Electric, the same design is used in the new Soul EV pack.

Hyundai’s new 2019 Kona Electric, with its 64 kWh battery and an EPA-rated 258 miles of range, has gotten many positive initial reviews but until now we haven’t known much about some important aspects of its internal powertrain design.

Yes.
I ordered a Platinum Grey 64kWh Noblesse trim.
According to the dealer they closed the list after 2000 orders.
I am surprised that the supply of this car for Korea is so low.

Fully Charged has a brief look at the new Soul EV at the LA Motor Show.
