Kia has finally revealed details of the EV9 ahead of its world debut in 2023, having announced the project at AutoMobility LA in Los Angeles last year.

The all-electric car looks set to become the Korean brand’s flagship model and will (in their words) revolutionise the large electric SUV segment.

Developed over the last three and a half years, these gorgeous early photos clearly show it oozes style and design.

During final testing recently, the EV9 was relentlessly subjected to a gruelling verification programme on a 4WD climbing hill and a rough terrain track, as well as a deep-water wading test, to ensure maximum reliability even in the most challenging conditions.

Kia’s high-speed, handling, and low-friction tracks place every element of the EV9’s performance and road-holding under the strictest scrutiny.

Due to be introduced in the first quarter of 2023, the Kia EV9 will follow in the footsteps of the brand’s ground-breaking all-electric EV6, which won Irish Car of the Year and European Car of the Year 2022 title.
