Rumor suggests Kia Soul EV replacement will not come stateside
A Kia source claims the replacement is DOA for the USA

I wonder if this will come true. It was already delayed for the US until 2020 but delayed again until 2021.

'13 Leaf SV w/premium (owned)
'13 Leaf SV w/QC + LED & premium (lease over)

Please don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.

I wonder if this has something to do with the LG/SK lawsuit, if not battery shortages for other reasons.
