The EV6 is 4,695 mm tall, which means the EV9 will be tall and can have three rows of seats to seat 7 people.
The EV9 will also use the Hyundai E-GMP platform
As a part of its transition towards a focus on more sustainable energy, Kia has unveiled two new electric cars. It has showcased the SEVEN concept and the EV9, both of which will be converted into production vehicles. In the case of the EV9, the calculations will be thick and fast as it will launch very soon. The SEVEN will be replaced by the Hyundai Ioniq 7 which will launch in 2024.
South Korean giant Hyundai-owned Kia has shown off the EV9 in a concept car format – in the form of a boxy SUV silhouette that could be a zero-emissions adaptation of the Telluride. But that is unlikely, as Hyundai, Kia and Genesis are all leveraging the e-GMP modular electric car platform that was developed in partnership with Canoo.
Kia already sells the e-Niro and EV6. The EV6 is a Hyundai Ioniq 5 that has been appreciated all over the world. The EV6 is a 5 seater but the EV9 looks tall. The EV6 is 4,695 mm tall, which means the EV9 will be tall and can have three rows of seats to seat 7 people.
As we have already seen with the e-GMP platform and the GT variant of the EV6, the car can pack a lot of punch, with plenty of potential to generate 569 Bhp. The range could also be good but the architecture is already geared to a 77.4 kWh battery which is likely to increase due to the larger length and width of the vehicle and the weight.
Hyundai is leveraging the E-GMP platform across the group with the Ioniq brand of EVs under the parent Hyundai brand, with the new GV60 under its luxury brand Genesis and the EV6 under Kia.
