The all-electric version of the Kia Soul has been spotted testing, and this time our spy photographers have given us a look into the forthcoming model’s interior. The current model’s bulbous interior lines have largely remained, though here the central air-conditioning vents are now unified within the central trim housing, which is also now home to a revised central stack for the HVAC and infotainment controls.

Further south of that, the gear selector is now a rotary dial instead of the lever from before, while the steering wheel has been mildly revised with a new central boss and trim materials. The central infotainment screen appears to be larger, and is seen here to display the vehicle’s battery range, among other information – it indicates 437 km of range from a 92% charge.

The visually distinct crossover is expected to retain petrol and diesel engines in its line-up – the 201 hp 1.6 litre T-GDI version with dual-clutch transmission introduced last year is expected to carry on into the forthcoming update.

Though configured primarily for front-wheel drive, the new platform is said to be able to accommodate an all-wheel-drive configuration, which opens up the possibility of AWD versions. The Soul EV will surely take advantage of any packaging improvements for battery accommodation, and in turn, range. As the Soul EV’s disguise is still rather comprehensive, there should be more updates to come before its debut.
