Can the Soul EV's manual front seats be replaced with power seats from a conventional Soul? If so, will they be any lower?
I REALLY want to buy a 2015 Soul EV, but my wife (4'10" / 1.47 m short) can barely get into the driver's seat (25" / 635 mm high), and can NOT get into the passenger's seat (26.5" / 673 mm high). Plus, she has rheumatoid arthritis, and cannot adjust any of the manual controls. I found a Soul service manual online (free!) showing the exact placement of the seat bolt holes, but haven't found a service manual for the Soul EV.
Any advice or help will be greatly appreciated!

P.S. Have not found any running boards or step bars that will fit the Soul, and motorized seat lifts for the handicapped are half the cost of the car!
