Kia EV9 will join the EV6 in India, as the brand's second electric vehicle in the country.

Kia introduced the EV9 concept at the Auto Expo 2023 in February this year. Recently, the South Korean auto giant owned by the Hyundai Group launched the EV9 in its home country. Also, the automaker has announced that soon the company will start shipping the EV9 electric SUV to the global markets. Interestingly, this announcement comes soon after Kia India hinted that it will bring the EV9 into the Indian market by 2025. Earlier this month, during the unveiling of the Kia Seltos facelift in India, the automaker said that it will bring three new cars into the country by 2025 and among them, two will be electric vehicles.

The automaker has claimed that in the very first month, in June 2023, Kia delivered 1,337 units of the EV9 electric SUV. In South Korea, it sold 1,334 units, while three units were exported to other markets. Another major seller for the brand in the electric vehicle segment has been the Kia EV6. In June this year, Kia EV6 sold 9,217 units, up 65 per cent from the same month a year ago and roughly in line with April and May this year.
