2024 Kia EV9 Priced From $55k in U.S.

First real three-row EV gets a price tag

  • Kia EV9 hits dealers next quarter

  • Light trim squeezes under $55k

Kia’s next big EV has just gotten a price tag. The three-row EV9 will hit dealers by the end of the year, and will start at just under $55k.

The 2024 Kia EV9 starts with the Light RWD trim at $54,900. The model gets faux-leather seating for seven passengers, power-adjust, heated, and ventilated front seats, and a single motor that delivers 215 hp with 258 lb-ft of torque. It’s expected to have a range of about 223 miles.

That base EV9 will have an 800V electrical system and Kia says it will be able to get its 76 kWh battery from 10 to 80 percent in under 25 minutes, on the right Level 3 charger, of course.

The Kia EV9 will be the first EV that the company will build in North America. It will be assembled at the company’s new site in West Point, GA.

Future trim grades will include the 99.8 kWh Light Long Range, Wind, Land, and a GT-Line. Land models are expected to deliver 379 hp from a dual-motor AWD system, and the GT-Line to make the same power with an extra 74 lb-ft of torque available on demand.

Pricing for the other grades of the 2024 EV9 will come later, and the vehicles are expected to hit dealers later on.

“We knew we had to get the EV9 pricing right and we believe today’s announcement will be a wake-up call to the industry,” said Steven Center, EVP & COO, Kia America. “A well-equipped three-row SUV EV doesn’t have to be prohibitively expensive. It should offer the perfect balance of standard features, the ability to fast charge and be equipped with the technology savvy EV buyers are looking for. The EV9 provides all of this, and we can’t wait for it to go on sale later this year.”

The 2024 Kia EV9 will start at around $13,000 more than a comparable gas-powered Telluride EX. But much of that difference should be canceled out by fuel savings and government EV incentives.
