The Kia EV9 GT is claimed to come with dual electric motors, powering each axle and sending power to all four wheels. However, the Hyundai-owned car manufacturer has not revealed any further details about the upcoming high-performance electric SUV.

While Kia has not divulged any specifications of the Ev9 GT, we can use the EV6 GT as a guide to understand the upgrades that could take place in the upcoming SUV. The AWD variant of the standard EV6 churns out 320 hp power and 604 Nm of torque, while the EV6 GT pumps out 576 hp power and a whopping 738 Nm of torque.

The Kia EV9's standard version comes with a 215 hp generating electric motor delivering power to the rear wheels thanks to a 76.1 kWh battery pack. There is a 99.8 kWh battery pack on offer as well that is available with a single 201 hp motor-powered model and an AWD version that churns out 379 hp power and 700 Nm torque.
