The latest version of Kia Soul, unveiled at the Brazilian Motor Show, is called the Flex and that gives a clue about this car’s main feature. It is the first Korean FFV (Flexible Fuel Vehicle) which can run on an ethanol-gasoline mixture, 100% ethanol or 100% gasoline. Currently this model is only available for the Brazilian market, which is relevant becasue they are the world’s second biggest producer of ethanol.

The advantages of sing bio ethanol instead of gasoline include lower fuel cost, as it is priced at 40% less than gasoline, and much lower emissions without any compromise on performance. Kia Soul Flex offers 44% improvement in fuel efficiency compared with the existing gasoline model and superior power (128 ps) and torque (16.5 kg-m) outputs.

Differences from the gasoline model include the newly adapted fuel injection & catalyst system as well as engine compression ratio – changes which combine to achieve enhanced fuel economy.
