The Kia EV9. Here to reshape the way we move.
The Kia EV9 exudes a sense of serene contemporary calmness befitting a sophisticated EV for a new age of sustainable mobility. Yet, it also portrays the confident surety of a bold SUV poised to conquer all conditions.
Kia has taken full advantage of the EV9’s long wheelbase and the completely flat electric vehicle architecture afforded by its industry-transforming Electric Global Modular Platform (E-GMP). The result is a cabin with generous space for all occupants in all three rows to connect and relax with lounge-style comfort. Meanwhile, exemplary all-electric range is achieved thanks to the 99.8kWh battery fitted in both the RWD and All Wheel Drive (AWD) ‘Performance’ variants.
Utilizing some of the most sophisticated Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) technology, the EV9 takes a significant step towards full autonomous driving. Kia’s new Highway Driving Pilot System (HDP) system is targeting conditional Level 3 autonomous driving in some markets. Fifteen sensors, including two lidars, allow it to scan for and detect objects in a full 360-degree field of view so that the system can react to the road and other users in milliseconds.(1)
Through Kia Connect Store, customers can keep their EV9 constantly updated by upgrading vehicle features and services without any need to visit a dealership. Customers can enhance the functionality of their EV9 in numerous ways. For example, the latest digital grille lighting patterns can be easily downloaded at the Kia Connect Store.(2)
Thanks to world’s first patent pending B-pillar connection structure technology, a chassis offering class-leading levels of occupant protection and a specially designed battery housing, the EV9 is designed to maximize the energy dispersion from potential impacts.
The Kia EV9 marks a pioneering milestone as the first model to embrace the brand’s design sustainability strategy, which aims to phase out the use of leather, apply ten must-have sustainable items to new Kia models and continuously increase the use of bio-based materials.

No system, no matter how advanced, can compensate for al driver error and/or driving conditions. The driver remains responsible for the safe and legal operation of the vehicle. Always follow the precautions and operating conditions listed in the owner’s manual.
Availability of HDP may vary by trim and market. The detailed features of HDP may vary by region due to local laws and regulations. Kia will provide more information about HDP upon market launch.
