Kia announce eSUV pricing

Kia Ireland has announced local pricing and specifications for their latest eSUV, which will land in Irish showrooms in late November.

Kia bosses say that the completely new EV9 is designed and built for modern lifestyles in the electrified era. As the company’s first three-row electric flagship SUV, the spacious, and striking EV9 is a rugged, sophisticated, and technologically advanced electric vehicle.

It will be available as a six or seven-seater and combines bold styling, premium versatility, multifaceted connectivity, and has a projected driving range of up to 563 kilometres.

The entry level model for the Irish market is the 7-seater ‘Earth’ model. Standard equipment includes 19” alloy wheels, triple panoramic display, heated front and second-row seats, ventilated driver and passenger seats, head-up display, 360-degree surround-view monitor, and premium Meridian sound system.

Standard safety equipment includes blind-spot collision avoidance with blind spot view monitors, LED headlamps with wide projections and high beam assist, and Highway Driving Assist 3.

The Earth model comes on the market at €77,500; and the AWD 384PS GT-line model at €85,500 offers a choice of 6 and 7 seats.

Additional spec for this trim level includes GT-line styling, 21” alloy wheels, dual sunroofs, intelligent adaptive front headlights, and Remote Smart Parking Assist 2. The 6-seater version adds extra comfort for the second-row passengers and these two seats can be swivelled around to face the two rear seats when the vehicle is stationary.

“The EV9 sets new standards for the segment while completely redefining it,” said Ronan Flood, Managing Director of Kia Ireland.

“There has always been a demand from families in Ireland for 6 and 7-seater vehicles, and if these families seek to change to electric, the EV9 is an attractive proposition for them. In recent years Kia has proved itself a prime mover in the road to electrification and the EV9 further proves our determination in this regard.”
