Kia Again Teases EV9 Ahead of LA Reveal Next Week
Kia has officially teased the EV9 all-electric SUV concept it officially… pre-teased just days ago. The model will get an actual reveal next week at the Los Angeles Auto Show.
Sporting what Kia describes as an “ultramodern exterior design”, the EV9 looks, if you squint a little, like a modified version of the Telluride. An all-electric counterpart, you might say. Certainly the basic shape is roughly the same, and while we don’t know the exact dimensions of the new SUV, it’s clearly in the “large” category and will almost certainly offer three rows of seats.
One thing it isn’t is a twin of the already-unveiled EV6, a much sleeker, sportier-looking crossover. The EV9 is proudly boxy, what with its long, flat roofline and vertical snout. We can’t help but wonder what effect the relatively un-aerodynamic silhouette will have on range. We’ll see…
We also note defined lines running from the fenders to the A and B pillars, both horizontally and angled downwards – a common characteristic of recent models produced by both Hyundai and Kia. The front end features a closed grille.
