2025 KIA EV9 Redesign
The All-New Kia EV9 will fill a place in desperate need of charging for a massively appealing all-electric, three-row SUV that has yet to arrive. Sure, there are electric three-rows from Tesla, Mercedes, and Rivian.
While it’s still too early for specific details, the EV9 will likely be offered with rear-wheel drive, depending on the trim level.
2025 KIA EV9
Kia hasn’t released any information on the EV9’s battery or motor size. Still, to be competitive, they’ll need to offer a range of 220 to 300 miles on a single charge with a usable crane capacity with a full trailer weighing 4,500 pounds.
KIA EV9 Powertrain
Official horsepower and performance figures are still closely guarded, but rumors suggest modest offerings. We expect the lower EV9 trim with a single motor to offer around 200 horsepower with rear-wheel drive.
All-wheel drive will double the engine, placing an additional unit in front, which can at least double the horsepower output to 400.
Since it’s based on the fuel-only Telluride, expect the EV9 to be built to focus on range and hauling instead. of acceleration performance.
KIA EV9 Interior
The EV9 will come in a six- or seven-passenger variant, depending on whether the second row has a basket or bench.
On higher trim EV9s, the third row is power folding. Kia hasn’t released a complete list of dimensions and details, but compared to the Telluride, the EV9’s second row is just as comfortable.
The third row has more legroom and headroom. The second-row seats can also be swiveled rear-facing—similar to Chrysler’s Swivel ‘n Go launched in its 2008 minivan.
Inside the EV9 is a pair of 12.3-inch screens—one for the gauge cluster and the second for infotainment—with dedicated HVAC readings in between.
The EV9 has no physical knobs, and the buttons are smaller than the Kias sold today.
Only a few HVAC control buttons and volume knobs, along with touch-sensitive controls embedded in the dashboard to switch to different menus.
The EV9 uses a new generation of infotainment, kept secret until three new lines are revealed.
KIA EV9 Price
The 2025 EV9 comes with a single or single rear motor on each axle for all-wheel drive and will be priced in the $50,000 to $70,000 range.
The 2025 Kia EV9 is a highly anticipated electric SUV with impressive performance, range, and luxury. The EV9 will significantly impact the electric vehicle market with its imminent debut.
