The 2024 Kia EV9 is the automaker's latest practical yet sporty electric vehicle. The midsize three-row crossover is Kia's flagship electric vehicle. Its predecessor, the Kia EV6, has been a big hit. (Numbers 7 and 8, expected to be a midsize crossover and a sport sedan, respectively, will follow the EV9.) The EV9 represents Kia’s bid to meet U.S. demand for big vehicles and, while classed as a midsize, it is big inside. The EV9 measures almost 16.5 feet in length, making it the same size as the non-electric Kia Telluride and Hyundai Palisade three-row crossovers, but its much longer wheelbase opens up interior space.

While the EV9 is almost 2 feet shorter than the full-size Chevrolet Suburban, it offers almost as much first- and second-row legroom and more second- and third-row headroom. The Suburban handily beats the EV9 in cargo space and third-row legroom, but the gas-burning Chevy can’t come close to matching the electric Kia in efficiency or clean emissions.

There are a number of three-row SUVs and crossovers with standard gasoline engines, but as an electric vehicle, the EV9 is in a small group. Its rivals, the Rivian R1S, Mercedes-Benz EQS SUV, Tesla Model X, and the upcoming VinFast VF9, all start well above the EV9’s pricing. The VinFast and Rivian base trims might compete price-wise with the top end of the EV9 lineup, but VinFast first must overcome the wave of poor reviews received by its North American debut model, the VF8 two-row crossover.

For now, the EV9’s likeliest competitors will be the smaller Mercedes-Benz EQB, the three-row version of the Tesla Model Y Long Range, and the upcoming Hyundai Ioniq 7 and Toyota bZ5X. The latter two are expected to be priced closer to the EV9.

Kia is going heavily into electric vehicles, with a target of 14 battery-electric models by 2030. The 2024 EV9 is a core piece of that plan.
