All-Electric 2024 Kia EV9


As the world shifts towards a more sustainable future, electric vehicles (EVs) have emerged as a promising solution for reducing carbon emissions from transportation. Among EVs, SUVs have gained significant popularity in recent years, owing to their practicality and versatility. Kia Motors’ first all-electric SUV, the 7-seater 2024 Kia EV9, is now here.

Developed on the proven E-GMP architecture dedicated to electric vehicles with fourth-generation battery technology, the EV9 enhances space with seating for up to seven passengers, with a long wheelbase and flat floor that provide both flexibility and comfort for all. Through the integration of some of the latest in-vehicle technology, vehicle system over-the-air updates6, ultra-wideband-based Digital Key, and Onboard Power Generator (V2L) functionality, the EV9 is enabled to continue to evolve throughout the ownership experience. The EV9’s standard 800V electrical architecture enables ultrafast recharging on high-speed DC chargers, designed to go from a 10 to 80 percent state of charge in under 25 minutes.

From launch, the EV9 is available with a choice of two powertrain options. Standard is a 76.1-kWh battery with a 160-kW (215-hp) motor that drives the rear wheels. An optional 99.8-kWh battery is available in a single-motor configuration targeting 300 miles of all-electric range (AER), or a dual-motor, 283-kW (379-hp) torque vectoring all-wheel-drive configuration with 516 lb.-ft. of torque. The EV9 offers four drive modes at launch on all trims: Eco, Normal, Sport, and My Mode.

With a maximum DC charging speed of up to 230kW, the EV9 can facilitate quick charging with compatible DC chargers, while the 11kW onboard charger enables expedient Level 2 charging, as well. The EV9 competes with traditional gas SUVs featuring up to 7.8 inches of ground clearance and the ability to tow up to 5,000 lbs.

Kia’s industry-leading 10-year/100,000-mile limited warranty also includes the EV9’s battery – how’s that for peace of mind?

Overall, the Kia EV9 is poised to be a promising addition to the growing Kia EV lineup. With its advanced technology, spacious interior, and impressive range, it not only is a sustainable choice of SUV but it is a practicable one too. The 2024 Kia EV9 is the ideal SUV to own in the world’s ever-growing shift to a more sustainable future.
