The all-electric Kia Soul EV was named as the 2015 Car of the Year in Norway, beating out rivals such as the Audi A3 hybrid and Volkswagen Passat.
The largest consumer information service providing organization in Norway, Dinside, has named the Kia Soul EV the best car for 2015 based on its price, space, handling, technology, and environmental friendliness.
Soul EV gained the highest marks among 10 eligible candidates, thanks to its excellent design, spacious interior, and the best range (212km) on a single charge among the available electric vehicle models.
Unlike some other eco-friendly cars with limited cargo space, Soul EV has been able to maximize the passenger and cargo room thanks to its boxy shape, adding practicality for all consumers.
Norway has the highest EV market penetration per capita in the world.
