The 2024 Kia EV9: Modern Refinement in a three-row SUV

The new 2024 Kia EV9 is the latest electric vehicle from Kia and the first three-row EV SUV offering premium accommodations and adventure capabilities rivaling ultra-luxury SUVs. Napleton News is always looking for a way to get charged up and the EV9 is just the vehicle to do it.

Innovation and more.

The new 2024 Kia EV9 shows the direction the company will head in their pursuit of EV dominance. One key point: It is the first three-row SUV in the Kia brand. This allows owners to bring the entire family along, whether across town or cross-country. It features a large interior, towing capabilities and plenty of cargo space. Add segment-above interior appointments and fast charge capabilities to sweeten the deal even more.

The Kia EV9 uses the proven E-GMP architecture with new fourth-generation battery technology. It rides on an extended length wheelbase and flat floor platform that reminds us of a skateboard. The EV9 is equipped for over-the-air updates and utilizes an onboard power generator. The EV9 includes standard 800V electrical architecture for rapid charging. With this 800V system, it is possible to go from a 10-to-80 percent state of charge in under 25 minutes, depending on charging device. We know how erratic chargers can be so as we say in the business, your mileage may vary.

I've loved everything on wheels: Trains, Planes and definitely Automobiles. I am constantly in search of the latest in new technology, which makes our lives better each day, but will always respect the classics. You can't continue forward without first taking a look back at where you've been.
