Kia has finally killed off the 'First Edition' of the Soul EV which has been on sale since the car's launch and replaced it with a new 'Maxx' model. The Maxx has been cunningly priced at £34,945 on-the-road, making it eligible for the UK Government's £2,500 Plug-in Car Grant for electric cars costing less than £35,000.

We talk to Hamilton Garage, the car dealership that has been operating from its site in Sidford for over 40 years – and some local residents have been customers since it started.

General Manager Terry Jennings and Sales Manager Tony Veasey have both been working there for more than 20 years, and some of the mechanics for almost as long.

We are pleased to welcome Hamilton Garage, who will be sponsoring our new Motors section with regular content including 'Car of the Week' and other high-quality motor articles. This will be in addition to regular articles from Ginny Buckley, the first female motoring editor of a national newspaper and former Sky News anchor.
