  • 2024 Kia EV9 electric SUV specifications leaked
  • Seven-seater to offer single- or dual-motor powertrains; up to 294kW/650Nm
  • Full reveal expected later this year; currently unconfirmed for Australia, but likely in 2024

A leaked owner survey has provided new information about the forthcoming 2024 Kia EV9 electric SUV.

As it shifts closer to the launch of the seven-seat EV9, Kia’s US division has sent out a survey to current Telluride owners, which was obtained by Car and Driver.

The questionnaire provides insight into the EV9’s pricing, powertrains and driving range – at least for the United States.

While Kia Australia has yet to confirm if the EV9 is headed our way, it is expected to arrive here in 2024 as its largest electric vehicle – and SUV – offering.

Last year, Kia Australia general manager for product planning, Roland Rivero, told Wheels it has strong prospects for a local arrival.

“In the absence of Telluride, and I know there’s a lot of opinion on the lack of bringing that model to Australia, we think EV9 has got a lot of potential here.”

A spokesperson for Kia America told Car and Driver: “Like other car companies, we are constantly evaluating the market and often conduct research on a regular basis to inform future product development.”

At the bottom end of the range, the EV9 should offer a single-motor, rear-wheel-drive model with approximately 147kW and 340Nm, and a 354-kilometre driving range.

It has a claimed 0-60 mph (0-97km/h) time of around 8.5 seconds, with no towing capacity figure listed.

There is no information on its battery size or charging speed.

A mid-spec rear-wheel-drive variant is expected with a larger battery, a 467-kilometre driving range, and a 907-kilogram towing capacity.

It is worth noting that the towing capacity for a US-spec vehicle is often different to Australia, with the smaller EV6 featuring a 1600kg braked towing capacity across the range locally.

However, the added weight of the larger battery is expected to impact its performance, with its 0-97km/h sprint time being 0.4 seconds slower.

The entry-level EV9 is likely to start around US$56,000 (AU$79,500), while the single-motor extended-range variant is listed on the survey at US$61,000 (AU$86,500).

Stepping up to the base all-wheel-drive includes a second electric motor mounted to the front axle, for a 294kW/519Nm total system output. It has a 0-97km/h time of six seconds, while its towing capacity jumps to 1600kg – but its driving range drops to 418 kilometres.

It is listed at US$63,000 (AU$89,500), while a higher trim with 20-inch alloy wheels and likely additional equipment is available for US$68,000 (AU$96,500). It has an even lower driving range of 386 kilometres.

Meanwhile, the range-topping variant has the same 386-kilometre range, but with 650Nm of torque, a 2000-kilogram towing capacity, and a 5.2-second 0-97km/h time. It is listed at US$73,000 (AU$104,000).

Further equipment for the flagship grade includes black 21-inch alloy wheels, black exterior trim, and 10-millimetre higher ground clearance. It could wear X-Line badging, in line with range-topping versions of the Sportage, Sorento and Telluride in the United States.

As reported, the 2024 Kia EV9 will ride on the Hyundai-Kia Group’s dedicated E-GMP electric vehicle architecture, as found underneath the Hyundai Ioniq 5, Ioniq 6, Kia EV6 and Genesis GV60.

It will be heavily related to the Hyundai Ioniq 7, which is also expected to debut later this year.

The latest development follows previous teaser shots of the EV9 during testing in Korea, revealing an overall silhouette similar to the EV9 Concept showcased at the 2021 Los Angeles Auto Show.
