The reveal of the Kia EV9

The EV9's assertive and confident appearance is influenced by Kia's "Opposites United" design concept, which uses the creative tension produced by the conflicting values of nature and modernity. The designers at Kia have created an SUV that is stunningly modern yet serenely graceful by fusing a special combination of sleek, sculptural lines and confident, powerful geometry.

"The Kia EV9 breaks new ground, aiming to redefine standards for design, connectivity, usability and environmental responsibility," said Karim Habib, Executive Vice President and Head of Kia Global Design Center. "The Kia EV9 offers customers an exceptionally high-quality proposition and a fresh EV perspective in the family SUV sector. This new vehicle typology provides instinctive experiences and excellent comfort for not just the driver, but all occupants, through innovative use of space, technology and design."

The EV9's front is distinguished by straightforward, unmistakable body surfaces and lines that express assurance, clarity, and tranquillity in equal measure. The EV9's distinctive "Digital Tiger Face" exudes a visionary and future look and feel and is accentuated by the "Digital Pattern Lighting Grille" and eye-catching vertical headlights. The bodywork of the Digital Tiger Face has two groups of tiny cube lamps next to each headlamp. The EV9's ground-breaking "Star Map LED daytime running lights (DRL)" provides a sophisticated animated lighting pattern that will serve as a visual cue for Kia's Digital Tiger Face on the company's upcoming EV cars.

The side profile of the EV9 was created using a polygonal design language, which seamlessly combines a strong and identifiable SUV identity with remarkable aerodynamic efficiency. Along with the fuselage body, dynamic triangular fender structures and strongly defined geometric wheel arches form a unified structure with a definite appearance. A sense of swift and effective motion is created by flush door handles and a tapering back roofline.

The vehicle's tailgate, with its uncomplicated, sleek lines and exquisitely detailed slim rear lights that mirror the front lights' design, further reflects the EV9's strong and certain stance.

The EV9's long wheelbase, low beltline, and completely flat electric vehicle architecture, which were all made possible by Kia's Electric Global Modular Platform (E-GMP), have allowed for the creation of generous space for all occupants to connect and relax in lounge-style comfort in all three rows of seats. In order to ensure that the EV9 provides equal room, comfort, and pleasure for all occupants without putting all of its focus on the driver, Kia solicited feedback from families for its six- and seven-seat models.

When the EV9 is charging, passengers in the first and second rows can simultaneously recline their seats to rest and relax. To communicate with individuals seated in the third row, the chairs in the second row may easily rotate 180 degrees. Furthermore, cup holders and mobile device charging ports are included in the third row seats.

The EV9 exudes an elegantly simple, premium quality, and exceptionally user-friendly design throughout the spacious, light, and airy cabin. The steering wheel connects to the middle of the open, floating, panoramic dashboard. The digital experience is improved by the integration of two 12.3-inch touch displays with a 5-inch segment display. This allows for simple control of the vehicle's functions while minimizing the need for physical buttons.

The Kia EV9 is here to reshape the way we move.
