Hi everyone on the Kia Soul EV Forum!

I just signed up because I am very seriously considering the Soul EV. I currently have a 2011 Kia Soul and my wife and I love it. So, depending on price, we may be ordering one of these electric vehicles!

Hi! I'm member #14! :lol:

Sorry, I'm used to the LEAF forum, where I'm member #14,288, or so.

My lease is up in November, and the Soul EV looks pretty good, if they sell in here in MA.
(Admin, no location identifier in profile in this forum?)

We've sat in the gas version, and it seems nice, higher up than the LEAF, and we like the heating system plans.

MA is rolling out a $2500 EV rebate this summer. If they sell it here, I'll definately consider it. I wouldn't bring it in from another state, if they can't service it here, that's a deal breaker.
2012 LEAF SL, since 11/2012, 2 yr lease

Hi Guys

I introduce my self as new member.
I live in France (20KM east from PARIS)
Last saturday my wife and I have signed for a 3 years lease for a SOUL EV ULTIMATE (EU full option) black and top red.
We should get it end december or early january.
This soul will be mostly for my wife who is doing less than 5000KM per year.
I have tested t it at Paris motorshow and we were very enthousiast with it.
I have some files about this car that i will try to upload.

Regards to all.

Is there anybody out there in Canada who has tried to purchase a KIA Soul EV? I ordered one about 8 months ago and the dealership keeps telling me that none are available.

What other EVs are are available in your area? Do they all have waiting lists for delivery?

Here in Atlanta (USA) there are many, many Nissan Leafs, some Teslas and growing number of BMW i3s on the roads. Ford Focus Electric and Kia Soul EVs are rare. 'California compliance cars' are not sold here, so we are unable to buy the Chevrolet Spark EV, Honda Fit EV, Fiat 500e, VW e-Golf or Mercedes B-Class Electric Drive.

PS -- St-Sauveur is so beautiful!

Merci beaucoup and thank you! All EVs here are very rare and it's quite a job to get one. I'll keep looking...!

Whe are in the same situation here in Québec except for the Spark EV. It's now avaliable.

For the Honda Fit EV, Honda have stop the production for ever.

The waiting list is for Kia only. I dont have any idea of when i receive my Soul EV, the dealer dont know and Kia Canada dont know. Bad services.
