    The EV9 made its public and dynamic UK debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed on 13-16 July 2023, before embarking on its tour of the UK. 

    The event will include an unveil show followed by an in-depth presentation about the EV9 and the opportunity to look around the vehicle in detail. Electric vehicle experts will be available to answer questions so that customers are fully informed with first-hand knowledge about Kia’s latest electrified range. Customers also have the option of putting in an order for the EV9 and other award-winning Kia models.

    The EV9 is a seven-seat electric SUV available in three grades, ‘Air’, ‘GT-Line’ and ‘GT-Line S’, a six-seat variant is also exclusively available for the range topping ‘GT-Line S’ grade. EV9 pre-orders are open now with prices starting from £64,995.

    The EV9 is powered by either a single motor rear-wheel drive setup for the ‘Air’, or a dual motor all-wheel drive powertrain on the ‘GT-Line’ and ‘GT-Line S’. Every grade of EV9 is equipped with a large 99.8kWh fourth-generation lithium-ion battery. Range for the rear-wheel drive EV9 ‘Air’ is rated as up to 336 miles (WLTP combined), while the all-wheel drive EV9 ‘GT-Line’ and EV9 ‘GT-Line S’ variants offer up to 308 miles range per charge. Based on Kia’s ground-breaking E-GMP platform, every EV9 is capable of 800V charging which can deliver 10-80 per cent charge in 24 minutes at the fastest 350kW ultra-fast charge points1.

    Leaders in electrification, Kia plans to launch 15 fully electric models globally by 2027, nine in the UK, as part of its ‘Plan S’ strategy that was first announced in 2020.

Notes to Editor:

1 In order to achieve the maximum charging speed, EV9 must use an 800V electric vehicle charger that delivers at least 240kW of electricity. Actual charging speed and charging time may be influenced by the battery temperature and weather conditions. Range figures are determined according to the standardised EU measurement procedure (WLTP). Individual driving style and other factors, such as speed, outside temperature, topography and the use of electricity-consuming devices/units, have an influence on the real-life range and can possibly reduce it.
