We waited almost 2 months for our Soul EV. Nothing like the 7 month wait for our Kona EV. We decided to trade in our Plug In Electric C-Max Energi. We were given a rock bottom appraisal on the 2016 Energi with only 34,000 kilometers on it. So today we drove into the valley about 40 kilometers away to a different dealership and got a much better appraisal on the Energi, bought it, and brought it home this afternoon. We got some goodies thrown in as well i.e floor mats, rear bumper protector for dogs climbing in, dealer cost on Michelin Cross/Climate tires including free installation. Which is best in my eyes so far? I have to say the Soul is because we wanted more room especially getting in and out of the car. It is a delight with very spacious entry and head room, and also electric passenger seat. First impressions, are that the Kona seems heavier and more BMW like in the build--maybe a little sportier. The Soul EV is more airy and it puts you into a sitting position more like an SUV i.e. higher with excellent vision. The nav screen in the Soul is bigger and it appears like it is going to be more comprehensive with weather and traffic built in. The suspension in the Kona is much firmer and the Soul is a bit softer over the bumps which is nice. My husband feels the seat backs in the Soul are a bit broader which he likes as he has broad shoulders. There seems to be more info. on the head up display too. It is going to be a world of difference for my dogs too as it has lots of head room for their crates. We were fighting over driving it home so I didn't get as much time on it as I will be getting. So far so good and I am really taken with the Soul EV. Probably my gut reaction is I will like it best. Hubby says he feels the same due to the head room. No losers here though as both are great cars.
