Kia Motors America, Inc. Key Developments

Kia Motors America Launches Soul EV Infrastructure in Washington and Oregon

Kia Motors America (KMA) is continuing its progressive launch of the Soul EV and adding to the electric vehicle ecosystem in the Pacific Northwest with 20 Soul EV-certified dealers and a robust charging network. Of the 20 dealers in the region, 12 will be located in Washington and eight in Oregon. In addition to each being equipped with two Level-2 chargers (40 total in the PNW region), 10 of the dealers will also be up-fitted with DC fast chargers, increasing Kia's overall network of fast-charging stations. As an added value, select Kia dealers will allow Soul EV owners to charge their electrified urban runabout at no cost. Kia's addition of six new DC fast chargers to Washington's already-existing network of 414 DC chargers will increase fast-charger availability by 40% in the Seattle metro area and 15% statewide. The four new chargers added to Oregon's current network of 815 DC fast chargers will increase fast-charger availability by 15% in the Portland metro area and 5% statewide.

Kia Motors America Renews Partnership with the Ecology Center and Provides Soul EV to Support Community Outreach Efforts

Kia Motors America (KMA) announced the renewal of its partnership with The Ecology Center, a San Juan Capistrano, California-based non-profit eco-education center dedicated to creating a healthy and abundant future for all of Southern California and beyond. In its third year as a "Visionary" partner, Kia is providing the use of a 2015 Soul EV to The Ecology Center, which complements the two electric vehicle charging stations installed as part of the partnership last year. Kia and The Ecology Center will organize and carry out sustainability-themed learning projects at the KMA campus in Irvine, California, and in the surrounding community, and both organizations will continue work together to plan hands-on conservation and volunteer activities at The Center.
