The Kia Soul was born as a mini MPV (Multi Purpose Vehicle) in its first generation. It is manufactured by South Korean automaker Kia Motors Corporation. Kia Motors Corporation has its headquarters in Seoul, South Korea. After Hyundai Motor Company, Kia Motors Corporation is the second biggest automobile producer in South Korea. In 2012, they sold over 2.7 million automobiles and in 2013 they sold around 2.75 million units. From December 2013, Hyundai Motor Company owns 33.88% of this corporation.
Kia is the oldest car company in South Korea, and its name comes from the Korean words “ki”, which means “to come out” and “a” which is the first letter of “Asia”. Therefore, the meaning of the name Kia, is rough, “coming out of Asia”. This company was established on 11 December 1944 when Korea was still a part of Japan. In its first year, Kia only manufactured 26 cars, but the very next year its numbers rose to over 95,000. By 1992, Kia had gone international and was absorbed into the United States. Its first dealerships in the US were opened up in Portland, Oregon.
Kia Soul was brought into the market to replace Kia Joice, and in turn, it was succeeded by the 1st generation Kia Venga. The first generation mini MPV Kia Soul was manufactured from 2008 to 2013. Its second generation, that is classified as mini SUV, began its production in 2013 and continues to present day. The design for the first-generation Kia Soul was inspired from a wild boar after Michael Tropey watched a documentary on those animals. Just like a wild boar, this car is lethal and capable regardless of its slightly smaller size.
