Kia EV9 to go on sale in the U.S. in Q4 2023.

Kia EV9 is expected to be assembled at Kia's manufacturing plant in West Point, Georgia, beginning in 2024. It will be the first Kia EV to be assembled locally in the United States.

Kia Motors America made a major announcement at the 2023 New York International Auto Show with the unveiling of its all-electric 2024 EV9 SUV for the first time in North America. The EV9 is expected to make its debut in the U.S. market in the fourth quarter of 2023. It is expected to be assembled at Kia’s manufacturing plant in West Point, Georgia, beginning in 2024. This is a major milestone for the company as the EV9 will be the first Kia EV to be assembled locally in the United States.

The pricing, timing for U.S. market availability, specific trim details, and EPA-rated AER for the EV9 are subject to future announcements. Developed on the proven E-GMP architecture dedicated to electric vehicles with fourth-generation battery technology, the EV9 is designed to enhance space with seating for up to seven passengers. Its long wheelbase and flat floor provide both flexibility and comfort for all passengers.

The EV9 is also equipped with some of the latest in-vehicle technology, including vehicle system over-the-air updates, ultra-wideband-based Digital Key, and Onboard Power Generator (V2L) functionality. This means the EV9 is enabled to continue to evolve throughout the ownership experience, providing an innovative driving experience for its users.

The EV9’s standard 800V electrical architecture enables ultrafast recharging on high-speed DC chargers, designed to go from a 10 to 80 percent state of charge in under 25 minutes. This feature provides convenience for users on long trips, where fast charging is essential.

At launch, buyers of the EV9 will have the option to choose from two powertrain configurations. The first option comes standard with a 76.1-kWh battery and a 160-kW (215-hp) motor that powers the rear wheels.

Alternatively, an optional 99.8-kWh battery will be available, which can either be configured with a single motor that delivers a range of up to 300 miles on a single charge or a dual-motor, 283-kW (379-hp) torque vectoring all-wheel-drive configuration with 516 lb.-ft. of torque. In addition, the EV9 will be equipped with four drive modes on all trims at launch, which include Eco, Normal, Sport, and My Mode.

The Kia EV9 is set to make significant strides towards full autonomy with the help of the Highway Driving Pilot (HDP) system. This system, which incorporates fifteen sensors, including two lidars, allows the EV9 to scan its surroundings in a 360-degree field of view, detect objects, and react to the road and other users to prevent potential collisions.
