Home and Destination Charging (0 -> 100%)

Charging is possible by using a regular wall plug or a charging station. Public charging is always done through a charging station. How fast the EV can charge depends on the charging station (EVSE) used and the maximum charging capacity of the EV. The table below shows all possible options for charging the Kia Soul EV. Each option shows how fast the battery can be charged from empty to full.

Europe

Charging an EV in Europe differs by country. Some European countries primarily use 1-phase connections to the grid, while other countries are almost exclusively using a 3-phase connection. The table below shows all possible ways the Kia Soul EV can be charged, but some modes of charging might not be widely available in certain countries.

Type 1 (Yazaki - SAE J1772)
Charging Point Max. Power Power Time Rate
Wall Plug (2.3 kW) 230V / 1x10A 2.3 kW 15h30m 11 km/h
1-phase 16A (3.7 kW) 230V / 1x16A 3.7 kW 9h45m 17 km/h
1-phase 32A (7.4 kW) 230V / 1x29A 6.6 kW † 5h30m 31 km/h
3-phase 16A (11 kW) 230V / 1x16A 3.7 kW † 9h45m 17 km/h
3-phase 32A (22 kW) 230V / 1x29A 6.6 kW † 5h30m 31 km/h

† = Limited by on-board charger, vehicle cannot charge faster.

Fast Charging (10 -> 80%)

Rapid charging enables longer journeys by adding as much range as possible in the shortest amount of time. Charging power will decrease significantly after 80% state-of-charge has been reached. A typical rapid charge therefore rarely exceeds 80% SoC. The rapid charge rate of an EV depends on the charger used and the maximum charging power the EV can handle. The table below shows all details for rapid charging the Kia Soul EV.

  • Max. Power: maximum power provided by charge point
  • Avg. Power: average power provided by charge point over a session from 10% to 80%
  • Time: time needed to charge from 10% to 80%
  • Rate: average charging speed over a session from 10% to 80%

Europe

CHAdeMO
Charging Point Max. Power Avg. Power Time Rate
CHAdeMO (50 kW DC) 50 kW 45 kW † 29 min 240 km/h
CHAdeMO (100 kW DC) 100 kW 80 kW † 17 min 420 km/h

† = Limited by charging capabilities of vehicle

Actual charging rates may differ from data shown due to factors like outside temperature, state of the battery and driving style.
