KIA reveals all the details of the EV9, an electric SUV with up to 541 kilometers of autonomy

A few weeks after its static presentation, KIA has revealed all the technical specifications of the EV9, its new large electric SUV. This model, which will become the flagship of its zero-emissions offer, will have the arduous task of competing in a category (segment E) currently dominated by premium brands such as Audi, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Tesla or Volvo.

The KIA EV9 measures 5.01 meters long, 1.98 meters wide and 1.76 meters high. Its wheelbase stands at 3.10 meters, and it is available with six and seven seats in 2+2+2 and 2+3+2 configurations respectively. As we already knew beforehand, it sits on Hyundai’s E-GMP platform, the same one we can find in the smaller EV6.

The range will consist of three mechanical options. The access model, called RWD Standard Range, combines a 218 hp (160 kW) and 350 Nm engine with a 76.1 kWh capacity battery. It can complete 0-100 km/h in 8.2 seconds. Above is the RWD Long Rangewhose engine reaches 204 hp (150 kW) and 350 Nm.

In this case, the pack announces a capacity of 99.8 kWh. The 0-100 km/h for its part stays in 9.4 seconds. The top of the range (at least until the arrival of a hypothetical high-performance GT variant) is the AWDwhich as its name suggests, has all-wheel drive thanks to the addition of a second unit on the front axle.


The KIA EV9 could receive a version of high-performance GT

Although it maintains the 99.8 kWh battery, its mechanical assembly produces 385 CV (283 kW) and 600 Nm, which translates into a 0-100 km/h in just 6 seconds. In addition, the Boost function (available at the KIA Connect Store) raises the maximum torque to 700 Nm and reduces the lap time to just 5.3 seconds. At the moment, KIA has only revealed the autonomy approved by the RWD Long Range: 541km WLTP.

Like the EV6, Has an 800 volt electrical system, a solution for the moment reserved for high-end models such as the Audi e-tron GT or the Porsche Taycan. Thanks to this advance, our protagonist offers extremely competitive loading times, being able to recover 239 km WLTP in just 15 minutes. In addition, V2L technology (Vehicle-to-Load) allows you to supply power to external devices.

KIA has also taken the opportunity to show the appearance of the finish GT line, a finish that adds a more sporty and spicy touch to the great SUV. Compared to the conventional EV9, this variant is distinguished by having a specific body kit. Depending on the version chosen, the car can mount wheels between 19 and 21 inches.
