Suspicion lurks that large chunk of electric Kia Souls registered as new in Germany end up on Norway’s roads
An investigation into Norway’s electric car buying patterns reveals that a suspiciously large and
progressively growing number of electric Kia Souls (Soul EV) entering Norway’s roads for the first time
this year are not new.
Instead, a notably large number of Kia Soul EVs registered in Norway consist of
second hand models.
AID obtained registration numbers illustrate the point.
In the nine months to September this year some 630 Kia Soul EVs were first
registered as new in Norway.
Other Norwegian vehicle registration numbers (gronnbil.no) showing the total number
of monthly electric car registration, regardless of whether these vehicles are new or
second hand, reveal that during the same nine months spell a considerably larger number of electric Kia Souls first
took to Norway’s streets...more
