With the EV9, Kia has a big brother to the successful EV6 electric car, which is set to celebrate its market launch in 2023. However, official details about the monster SUV are still scarce. The American brand’s consumer research is now shedding light on some key data, including pricing.
Kia takes a deep dive: A super electric car could be a bargain
That could be from $56,000 to $73,000. Converted to current costs of around 51,500 to more than 67,000 euros. The various prices are based on the Kia survey conducted by the Kia Telluride driver and his colleagues Electrek has shared The Telluride is Kia’s largest passenger car to date — at least until the EV9 is introduced.

If the column is part of it, we don’t know. According to the study, between 350 and 460 km lies If that’s true, Kia makes a compromise here. When presenting the EV9 concept, you planned and up to 540 km.
Additionally, Kia is asking for a total of five trim levels. Various ranges are offered, and there are also sunless versions with different engine power levels. Customers also have to choose between wheel sizes, all-wheel drive is also an option. However, it is unlikely that five variants will ultimately win – especially at the time of the market launch.
