The new name “e-Soul Cargo” isn’t just any randomly selected moniker but instead, it's just as you would have already suspected – the new car is a modified Kia e-Soul model. Part of the modification involved the removal of the rear seats to give room for extra cargo space. This new Kia e-Soul Cargo also comes with a metallic load floor that is fitted with 6 tie-down anchors as well as a separate hatch that provides direct access to the vehicle’s charging cable located underneath the floor.

This new model is also equipped with a strong metal rack that separates the cargo area from the passenger compartment. See photos below;

  • 10.25-inches infotainment system (plus TomTom Live Services) with compatibility for Apple Carplay and Android Auto

Speaking of electric transport vehicles, we are still awaiting further progress reports about the commercial electric vehicle launched in Nigeria recently by a company called JuSt Commercial Vehicles Ltd. We hope they are able to overcome the current challenges of running an electric car in Nigeria.
