Kia is readying its EV9 all-electric SUV for a launch in the first half of 2023 at a starting price of $50,000 and a maximum of 70,000€, the Korean Car Blog reported. The model was recently spotted being tested in Europe for the first time. Its boxy design is reminiscent of the concept vehicle though it has been toned down slightly and the rear suicide doors have been replaced with conventional doors.

The three-row Kia vehicle was first showcased as a concept EV at the LA Auto Show in 2021, and will likely measure around five meters and nearly two meters wide for a solid road presence. Reports suggest that the vehicle can sprint from zero to 100 kmph in around five seconds. It can likely go around 540 kms before needing to be charged again while a range of approximately 100 kms can be added to the vehicle in under 10 minutes.
