Kia EV9 specs appear to leak in customer survey revealing up to 290-mile range
Details about the 2024 Kia EV9 may have been leaked. A customer survey sent to a Kia Telluride driver, uncovered by Electrek, appeared to include new information about the five trim levels. For example, the customer was asked to select from a range between 220 and 290 miles (~354 and 467 km).
The survey suggested that the 2024 Kia EV9 would start from US$56,000, with the top-level trim costing US$73,000. The entry-level RWD electric vehicle would have 200 hp, 250 lb-ft (~340 Nm) torque and an 8.5 second 0 to 60 mph (~100 kph) acceleration time, alongside the 220 miles (~354 km) range. The greatest range of 290 miles (~467 km) is available with the second trim option, costing US$61,000. This car has the same power as the first trim, but a slower 0 to 60 mph acceleration of 8.9 seconds. The range-topping trim would have 240 miles (~386 km) range with 400 hp and 480 lb-ft (~653 Nm) of torque. This AWD EV would be able to tow 4,500 lbs (~2,041 kg) and hit 60 mph in 5.2 seconds.
Kia confirmed to Electrek that these were not necessarily the final specifications, with plenty of time for tweaks before the launch later this year. The US arrival window for the Kia EV9 was confirmed last year as the second half of 2023. The model is also expected to arrive in Europe and Australia before the year is out.
