The Kia EV9 boasts a striking design language that combines edgy and subtle elements. The car’s aesthetic draws inspiration from Hyundai’s Ioniq range, evident in its bold lines and creases on the wheel haunches. The images reveal that Kia has stayed true to the concept’s design, incorporating most of its original elements.

The dimensions of the upcoming car is expected to be around 5 meters in length, 2 meters in width, and 1.7 meters in height, with a wheelbase of approximately 3 meters. Some rumours suggest that the Kia EV9’s wheelbase will be similar to the 2900mm wheelbase of the Kia Telluride.

What To Expect

The car’s boxy silhouette seamlessly transitions into its rear, which features a kink at the end, similar to the concept model. The alloy wheels have a futuristic look and are expected to be 20 inches for lower trims and 21 inches for higher trims. During the presentation, Kia displayed both wheel sizes. Lower-spec trims are unlikely to feature a sunroof, while higher-spec trims will have a single pane sunroof at the front and a larger one for the 2nd and 3rd rows.

Kia EV9 is a gigantic SUV with three rows with a combination of 2+2+2 layout. It will offer two cup holders at the front, along with a button to control the modes. Under the hood, it packs a 77.4KWh battery based on the E-GMP platform. It has been speculated that the SUV will offer a range of 500kms on a single full charge. The initial launch of the Kia EV9 is expected to be in South Korea, North America, and China, followed by European and Asian markets such as India.
