Kia EV9 Concept to be Unveiled on November 11

Kia will unveil a new electric model this week

As 2021 draws to a close, it’s safe to say that the entire automotive industry is quietly preparing for a shift to electric power as the primary mode of propulsion for the majority of the world’s automotive fleet. Among traditional automakers, the Hyundai Group is particularly active in electrifying its vehicles, both on the plug-in hybrid side and the pure electric side.

Kia has just released this announcement of an unveiling that will take place later this week, on November 11 to be precise. The vehicle in question will be the Kia EV9, which will follow the EV6 unveiled earlier this year. However, in this case, Kia is announcing the unveiling of a concept instead.

For now, the only image posted on social networks shows a silhouette that is not unlike the Kia Telluride and since the automaker confirmed earlier this year that it was planning an electric lineup with names ranging from EV1 to EV9, we can conclude that this concept will probably be a three-row SUV. We’ll see in a few days if this future production model is as imposing as the current Telluride.

One thing is certain, this other EV will be based on the E-GMP platform dedicated to the Korean giant’s electric vehicles.

What’s more, Hyundai announced last week that it plans to assemble electric vehicles in the U.S., which suggests that Kia could also benefit from the parent company’s facilities.

It will be interesting to see what the strategy will be for this larger vehicle, especially in terms of providing acceptable range between recharges. We’ll know more this Thursday.
