The upcoming 2024 Kia EV9 will be the Korean brand’s first electric crossover. The production of this model will begin this year, which means the sales will start at some point in 2023. The brand-new Kia EV9 will have two electric motors and share its chassis with the Hyundai Ioniq 7 model.
The vehicle’s specs are already available and Kia says the EV9 model will offer a dual-motor system and produce 576 horsepower. On the other hand, no words on battery sizes, but many experts are predicting a driving range of around 300 miles.
The forthcoming 2024 Kia EV9 from 2024 will look very modern and upright. This model rides on the same platform as the EV6 model, but EV9 will get an extended version. It is a well-known skateboard platform, able to accommodate electric motors, batteries, and other mechanical components.
This SUV has a stylish appearance with beautiful lines. Some things are borrowed from the EV6 hatchback, but the EV9 model definitely has a sharper design. Furthermore, it is a longer model and Kia says the EV9 will be dimensionally closer to the Telluride SUV.
Kia EV9 Interior
The interior of the 2024 Kia EV9 is noticeably posher than the EV6 version. Three rows of seats in the new SUV will allow room for six occupants. The EV9 is the first crossover SUV composed of recyclable materials, which is always a positive thing. As a result, Kia’s interior is most environmentally friendly.
The EV9 has a huge 27-inch infotainment touchscreen, along with a wide panoramic sunroof. We are waiting for the production model to see if this is true. Moreover, we don’t know that much about crossover’s standard and optional amenities, and even the trim levels are a mystery.
Driving Range and Power
As we said, we know a couple of things about the new 2024 Kia EV9 in terms of performance. The dual-motor setup will produce 576 horsepower in the EV6 variant. Many experts believe that the larger EV9 version will produce, even more, around 600 horsepower. On the other hand, we don’t know anything about the battery sizes.
Reportedly, this model will provide around 300 miles of driving range on a single charge. The AWD system will be on offer, however, the RWD setup will most likely come as standard. Fast charging is available, using a 350-kilowatt charger. Still, the Korean automotive brand will reveal more details in the coming weeks.
2024 Kia EV9 Price, Release Date
The all-electric 2024 Kia EV9 SUV will make a public debut this year. However, the exact date is not available yet. Anyway, we know that this model will go on sale at some point in 2023, most likely in the first half of the year.
The production will start later this year, which is just the beginning. Kia plans to launch up to eleven EVs by 2026. The price is another mystery, but a price of around $50,000 is the most logical outcome. On the other hand, the sportier GT variant will surely cost closer to $70,000.
