2024 Kia EV9 Shows Off Bold New Design Direction

Kia revealed the first official images of the EV9, its first-three electric flagship with a bold design and sophisticated interior. It’s the Korean carmaker’s next step towards becoming a sustainable mobility solutions provider.

Guided by the brand’s “Opposites United” design philosophy, the Kia EV9 takes on a “Bold for Nature” ideology which combines elements from the natural and material worlds. This combines the aura of rugged capability with the calmness of a sophisticated EV that paves the way for Kia’s future electric SUV design.

The front of the EV9 is accentuated by the “Digital Pattern Lighting Grille” and striking vertical headlamps, the EV9’s signature “Digital Tiger Face” imparts a visionary and futuristic look and feel. The Digital Tiger Face features two clusters of small cube lamps within the bodywork adjacent to each headlamp. The EV9’s innovative “Star Map LED daytime running lights (DRL)” creates a new illumination experience and delivers a sophisticated animated lighting pattern that will denote Kia’s Digital Tiger Face for the brand’s future EV models.

The EV9 has a polygonal design that combines a strong and indisputable SUV identity with exceptional aerodynamic efficiency. It features dynamic triangular fender structures and highly pronounced geometric wheel arches as well as flush door handles and a tapered back roofline. At the rear of the vehicle, the simple, clean lines of the tailgate, which are elegantly detailed by the slim rear lights that mirror the design of those at the front, further reflect the strong and confident stance.

Built on Kia’s Electric Global Modular Platform (E-GMP), the EV9’s long wheelbase, low beltline, and completely flat electric vehicle architecture have facilitated the creation of generous space for all occupants to connect and relax with lounge-style comfort in all three rows of seats. Offered in both six and seven-seat formats, Kia captured feedback from families to evaluate seating configurations and features to ensure the EV9 delivers equality of space, comfort, and experience for all occupants without placing all of its focus on the driver.

Occupants sitting in the first and second-row seats can simultaneously recline their seats to relax and rest when the EV9 is charging. The seats in the second row can be effortlessly swiveled 180 degrees so that occupants can interact with those sitting in the third row. The third-row seats also offer cup holders and charging points for mobile devices.

Throughout the spacious, light, airy cabin, the EV9 embodies an elegantly simple, premium quality, exceptionally user-friendly design. The open, floating panoramic dashboard extends from the steering wheel to the vehicle’s center. Two 12.3-inch touch screens integrated with one 5-inch segment display improve the digital experience, offering effortless control of the vehicle’s functions and ensuring physical buttons are kept to a minimum.

The Kia EV9 will make its digital global premiere in late March. During the event, Kia will disclose all product information and roll out the global campaign with the slogan, ‘Here to reshape the way we move.’
