Well, fancy that. It appears as if Kia will have more than one hybrid on display at the upcoming Paris Motor Show. We already knew to expect a hybrid version of the cee'd five door hatch, and now we get word that the Soul will get some hybrid lovin' too. In addition to the gas/electric model, the regular Soul is also expected to be in attendance. We're not quite sure yet what's underhood of the cee'd hybrid, but Kia's gone and made things a bit easier to decipher on the Soul by placing a transparent hood on the concept, along with a clear floor so that passers-by can clearly see all that goes into making a mini hybrid 'ute. A 1.6-liter four cylinder engine is paired with a 15kW electric motor and both send power through a CVT transmission to the front wheels. The result? Forty-eight miles per gallon and CO2 emissions of just 117 g/km - pretty good for a vehicle in this class.
