I suppose it was the excitement of seeing the next generation Soul EV that I can use as an excuse for being an idiot. I bought a ticket online and had time this afternoon to drive downtown in the rain, knowing Thursday would be less crowded than the weekend. I passed through security and headed for the West Hall but nobody asked for my ticket. I then realized that the show wasn't open to the public until tomorrow and they were checking for official badges or wrist bands at the entrance to the Hall. A young lady was doing this, but I kept my head down fake-texting an urgent message as I briskly walked by her into the hall.
As you might expect, it was filled with photographers, videographers, car reviewers, etc. The lone Soul EV, not my favorite color, was being tape measured by a Korean group and was locked. I took a few photos and then a Kia rep unlocked it and turned the lights on for a photographer/reviewer. I managed to peek inside and get a quick shot (below) of the panel; range looks impressive after reading that it would only have a 140 mile range!
For what it's worth: This is a pre-production model, none available for a test drive during the show; might be available by March.
Here's a link to a gallery with some other Soul EV photos, a short video; and a few of the new Rivian SUV and truck:
Thank you all for the great info on this forum!
