The brand new 2024 Kia EV9 marks the beginning of what could be the normalcy era of electric cars.
Sure, there have been EVs on the market for well over a decade now, but until recently, the owners were Silicon Valley techies, early adopters, or eco-warriors doing their best to push the technology forward.
Now, those seeking a 3-row SUV have options in the all-electric world, and by the looks of it, it’s a pretty good option.
The EV9 carries over from its concept version remarkably well, with the unique lines, LED fascia, and boxy-yet-streamlined proportions intact.
It’s clear the Koreans know how to build a popular SUV, with the wildly popular Kia Telluride leading the pack. The fact that an even-more spacious electric version is now coming to market means that soccer moms and dads alike could be swapping their gas guzzlers for something more eco-friendly.
“The world of large SUVs remained firmly in the grasp of the internal combustion engine, but now that grip seems to be letting up.”
The EV9 features the same fast-charging architecture as its brother, the highly-rated EV6. With no word yet on specs, we’ll have to wait to see what the official range and pricing will be.
The interior has a clean look and ambient lighting, and the rear seats feature the ability to swivel fully around to create a type of living room feel.
The Kia EV9 officially launches in April, and should go on sale this summer.
We hear you, and definitely agree for the most part. Cars have gotten way too large. However, if consumers would buy a gas version of this large SUV anyway, wouldn’t it be better if their choice was better for the environment?
It may be an EV, but it is obscenely huge and thus completely unnecessary.
Especially as most of them will be used by Alpha Females for the school run.
Get rid of the damn things, don’t laud them.
