2024 Kia EV9 MSRP: How Much Will the EV9 Cost? – The 2024 Kia EV9 celebrates its North American debut at the New York International Auto Show on the day of today. This means that attendees will be able to see the three-row electric vehicle in US specifications for the first time.
The obligatory side marker lights aside In terms of design, the American-spec Kia EV9 looks the same as the model that was launched in Europe in the last few days. The specifications of both models are identical which is why Kia released a new announcement on the occasion.
The main purpose is to inform the public that in 2024, the Kia EV9 is expected to be constructed at West Point, Georgia, starting in 2024. It’s one of only a handful of Kia EVs to be assembled in the US which will allow the EV9 to be eligible for US tax credits that are federally backed – the question is which models will qualify to receive the entire $7,500 tax incentive however.
It’s not a secret that there’s nothing tinny about the exterior style of the brand-new Kia EV9 SUV, which effectively carries on some of the design cues that were used in the concept. As with its concept design, the actual model sports chunky and line-like lines as well as an underlying polygonal theme. If the Kia Soul were a middle-school student who had a cool father and an awesome dad, the EV9 could be the dad.
The distinct design is enhanced by a dazzling lighting design in the rear and front. It is an exclusive Digital Tiger Face with dual groups of tiny cube lights that sit in the bodywork along with every headlamp. The majority of the great things are there and include the beltline which is sweeping upwards in the area on the 3rd row. Large fenders and doors with handles that fit flush form the view from the sides, however the rear-hinged doors that were part of the original design are changed here by more conventional front doors.
These futuristic 21-inch wheels are encased with Michelin tires. The wheels feature off-center Kia logos. Another interesting feature that works with the EV9. Kia says that the options for wheels include 19-inch wheels up to 21-inch wheels we’re seeing on this page. The blacked-out A-pillars provide the EV9 with the appearance of a floating roof with one of those sporty spoilers on the rear. From the sides, the car is also noticeable that the roof overhangs aren’t as long and leave as much room as is practical for the passenger’s area.
Two versions – one that has an open roof that is conventional as well as one that has double sunroofs are shown. Also, we know we have here an EV9 GT-Line gets raised roof rails as well as exclusive tires and wheels as well as model-specific features on the exterior.
There are a lot of details that need to be verified, but it is unclear what colors will be on offer for the Kia EV9. Kia mentions that there’ll be the option of matte or gloss colors, however.
The dimensions for the Kia EV9 consist of a length that can go as high as 197.4 inches and an elevation of 70.1 inches and an overall width of 77.9 inches. This places it into the same class that Kia Telluride. Kia Telluride, although a bit more spacious. The wheelbase of 122 inches would be similar to that of the production model.
The weight of the curb is not known However, considering the fully electric motor and the size of it the EV9 is expected to be the largest Kia model to date. When you consider that the Telluride weighs in at 4500 pounds even in the heaviest model and the 2024 EV9 could come to 5,000 pounds comfortably.
The EV9 can be purchased with either six or seven-passenger variants, based on if the second row is equipped with benches or captain’s chairs. In the upper trim levels, the third row can be powered folding. The seats in the front were well cushioned on the test model that we test drove. A lot of the faux leather upholstery felt like it was made of plastic. We hope that this isn’t the case with U.S.-spec vehicles. The second-row captain’s chairs on the EV9 look like the front ones and feature heating, air conditioning, and massage. The back of the vehicle the third row can accommodate adults. However, it may require some compromises by the people in the second row so that they can comfortably allow the legroom. The rear cargo area of the EV9 is 20 cubic feet in size almost as large as the Telluride which can hold as much as 80 cubic feet when the 3rd and 2nd row are folded down.
Within the EV9 is a pair of 12.3-inch screens, one of which is to display the gauge cluster, as well as an infotainment screen with an exclusive HVAC display between the two. The EV9 has no physical knobs and its buttons are smaller when compared with other Kias that are available and only has a couple of key HVAC controls as well as the volume knob as well as touchscreen controls that are integrated into the dash that allows you to switch into different menus. The EV9 features a completely innovative new type of infotainment the details of which are kept not revealed until the third row of the new model is announced.
Engine and Performance
The Kia EV9 will offer two options for batteries within the US. Standard is a 76.1-kilowatt-hour battery, with 160 kilowatts (215-horsepower) motor which drives back wheels. The configuration is known as EV9 Standard RWD in various markets.
Customers can also avail of purchasing a bigger 99.8-kWh battery pack that comes in single or dual-motor options, referred to as EV9 RWD Long Range and EV9 AWD respectively. This model is powered by a 150 kW (201-hp) front-mounted motor in contrast, the latter has two motors (one per axle) that produce 283 kW (379 horsepower) as well as 516 pounds of torque.
The EV9 AWD has a torque-vectoring drive that aims for an 0-60 speed in five minutes.
In terms of distance, Kia targets a rating of 300 miles with models like the EV9 RWD Long Range version. There are no estimates for alternative models released However, the AWD version is likely to provide a lower range than 300 miles.
Due to the EV9’s 800-volt electrical design, facilitated through the E-GMP platform the 2024 Kia Electric Vehicle can offer a top DC rapid charging power of 230 kW. That can charge between 10 and 80 percent charging in less than 25 minutes. It will include an onboard 11-kW charger capable of level 2 charging.
No matter what the powertrain or trimming, Kia says the EV offers four different drive options at the time of its launch: Eco, Normal, My, and Sport. Mode.
In terms of practicality, it’s a good choice. EV9 is available at its launch in several 6- and 7-seat models. Because of its massive dimensions – similar to the Telluride but with the addition of an eight-inch wheelbase, the EV9 provides plenty of room for luggage and passengers.
With the three rows elevated and the three rows folded, the EV9 is able to hold 20.2 cubic feet of cargo space which increases by 81.9 cubic feet when the two rows of the rear seat fold down. The cargo space also has an outlet V2L which could be used to power tailgating events as well, with the EV9 built to serve as an energy source that can be moved around, because of an Integrated Charging Control Unit (ICCU).
Also, according to the announcement in the release the Kia EV9 offers up to 5500 pounds of towing capability We assume this rating applies to the AWD version.
We’ll need to be patient until Kia announces US pricing as well as the EPA-rated range ratings for the 2024 EV9. Kia will probably announce the details prior to the release date of the EV9 in the United States, expected in the fourth quarter of 2023. With the release date being estimated the initial batches of EV9s are likely to be imported into South Korea until US production starts. 2024 Kia EV9 MSRP
Release Date and MSRP
The brand new EV9 will be available for sale in the second third of 2023. It’s a guess as the price of 2024’s Kia EV9 isn’t known yet. It is possible to make some pre-calculated guesses, but. The EV9 will likely be more expensive and bigger than Kia’s previous electric car which is the EV6 which is true for the Telluride. The EV6 is priced at $48,700 we anticipate the EV9 will start around $55,000. That’s in line with the information from a survey of customers leaked in the last quarter of this year. The hot EV9 GT may be a lot higher priced and could be closer to $75,000 as MSRP. The EV9 is likely to be manufactured in the US by using components from all over the world which means that at the very minimum, federal tax incentives should apply.
