Kia EV9 – Kia has released the all new EV9 SUV. This is a seven seat all electric SUV that is sure to make many premium brands look over their shoulder.
In short, its simply stunning.
The EV9 comes in two versions immediately, the entry level Air priced from $97,000 and the top spec GT-Line, priced at $121,000. These are all plus the usual costs.
Its big with an overall length of a bit over 5.0 metres and yet looks smaller. It’s a box on wheels yet looks stunning. Inside its cavernous with ample room for seven.
The EV9 is engaging to drive with substantial performance and the suspension tuning for Australian conditions is spot on. It feels firmly planted to the road and the hefty 2600kg weight helps. Given that weight, the 0-100km/h time for the AWD GT-Line of 5.3 seconds is impressive.
You expect electric cars to be quiet. But not this quiet. There is almost no exterior road or traffic noise that invades the cabin.
Kia has excelled with the EV9. It has a level of intelligent convenience that cars twice its price aspire to.
