One of the first things that caught our attention was the expansive front screen, possibly Kia's longest ever.

With intuitive controls and ergonomic design, the dashboard provides a seamless user experience.

Step inside the EV9, and you'll immediately notice the generous space and luxurious feel. Even in the mid-tier trim level, the interior exudes sophistication, with comfortable seating for up to seven passengers. Adjustable seats and ample legroom ensure that everyone travels in style and comfort.

Battery and Performance

Under the hood, the EV9 boasts a powerful 99.8 kWh battery, complemented by an onboard charger for Level 2 charging at 11 kW. This setup promises efficient charging and impressive performance on the road. Equipped with an 800-volt battery architecture, the EV9 offers rapid DC fast charging, making it ideal for long journeys.

Cold Weather Performance
