Trail’ster Brings e-AWD To The Soul

We learned a little more about Kia’s e-AWD concept set to be shown in Chicago.

Aimed to be a vehicle for the city-dweller-turned- outdoor-adventurer, Kia Motors America said its e-AWD concept will be named Trail’ster.

Kia will take the wraps off the rugged Trail’ster e-AWD concept at the 2015 Chicago Auto Show.

Based on the Soul, the Trail’ster will have a fully retractable canvas roof and integrated rear electric all-wheel drive system.

In Kia’s words, the turbocharged Trail’ster takes Kia’s iconic Soul to a new level of expression, efficiency and capability.

This concept vehicle will be unveiled Thursday, February 12. We expect to learn a lot more about this concept then, as well as if there are any possibilities of seeing this technology on the Soul or Soul EV.
