Home and Destination Charging (0 → 100%)

Are you aware that you have two charging options for your Kia e-Soul 39.2 kWh? You can either plug it into a standard electrical socket or use a charging station. However, when you are traveling, you can charge your electric vehicle using a charging station since a wall socket is not feasible. Your EV's charging speed is determined by the kind of charging station you use, as well as its maximum charging capacity. Here's a table showing all of the charging options available for your Kia e-Soul 39.2 kWh, as well the estimated charging time required to fully charge the battery from empty.


Charging an electric vehicle (EV) across Europe varies from country to country. Some of the European nations largely depend on 1-phase connections to the grid, while others predominantly use a 3-phase connection. Below is a table that lists every possible way of charging a Kia e-Soul 39.2 kWh. It should be noted that some charging modes may not be available in some countries. So, it is highly recommended to get in touch with your local electric vehicle charging network to find out which charging options are available for you.

Fast Charging (10 → 80%)

Quick charging is essential for extending the distance of your trip by adding an optimal amount of range in the shortest possible time. When reaching an 80% state-of-charge, charging power will significantly decrease. Therefore, a standard quick charge seldom surpasses an 80% SoC. The fast charging rate of an electric vehicle depends on both the charging station used and the maximum charging power that the EV can handle. The table below provides a comprehensive overview for fast charging the Kia e-Soul 39.2 kWh.

  • Max. Power: maximum power provided by charge point
  • Avg. Power: average power provided by charge point over a session from 10% to 80%
  • Time: time needed to charge from 10% to 80%
  • Rate: average charging speed over a session from 10% to 80%
