At the Paris Auto Show, Kia will unveil, next to the SOUL crossover, the hybrid version of the car. The Soul Hybrid concept comes complete with a transparent bonnet and floor, so the new hybrid powertrain and battery pack can be viewed by show visitors.

This Soul features a 1.6-litre gasoline engine, mated to a 15 kW, 105 Nm electric motor, Kia´s own CVT (continuously variable transmission), ISG and ‘regenerative braking´ to re-charge its power pack. The prototype is designed to achieve a fuel consumption of 4.9 l/100 km and a CO2 figure of 117 g/km – reducing CO2 emissions by 26.4%.
