Kia Corporation has revealed the exterior and interior design of its first three-row electric flagship SUV, the Kia EV9. The electric vehicle encapsulates bold styling and sophisticated elegance both inside and out, representing a pivotal step forward in the company’s journey towards becoming a sustainable mobility solutions provider.
Inspired by Kia’s ‘Opposites United’ design philosophy, which harnesses the creative tension generated by the divergent values of nature and modernity, the EV9 offers a strikingly contemporary yet gracefully serene SUV. Karim Habib, Executive Vice President and Head of Kia Global Design Center, described the EV9 as breaking new ground and redefining standards for design, connectivity, usability, and environmental responsibility.
The EV9’s exterior design is guided by Kia’s ‘Opposites United’ design philosophy, which strives to create vehicles with unprecedented visual appeal. The ‘Bold for Nature’ pillar of the ideology, which inspires the combination of elements from the natural and material worlds, has played a key role in forming the exterior design of the EV9. The result is a vehicle that effortlessly combines an undoubted aura of rugged capability for all conditions, with the serene calmness of a sophisticated EV that paves new paths for future electric SUV design.
The interior of the EV9 has been designed to prioritize space, comfort, and technology for all passengers. 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, the EV9 delivers equality of space, comfort, and experience for all occupants without placing all of its focus on the driver.
The Kia EV9 will make its global premiere in late March with the slogan, ‘Here to reshape the way we move.’ The event will disclose all product information and roll out the global campaign. The EV9 represents a game-changer in the family SUV sector, providing instinctive experiences and excellent comfort through innovative use of space, technology, and design.
