Design: Reshaping the SUV experience

Building on the brand's own "Opposites United" philosophy that inspired it, the EV9 reimagines the all-electric SUV with a unique balance of natural and modern elements. The design pillar of "Bold for Nature", which inspires the blend of elements from the natural and material worlds, has played a major role in shaping the EV9's exterior design.

The exterior of the EV9 provides a sense of calm, thanks to the development of electric vehicle features and components that keep pace with a new era of sustainable mobility. The car has a wheelbase of 3,100 mm, supported by a choice of 21-inch, 20-inch or 19-inch wheels. Measuring an overall length of 5,010 mm, a width of 1,980 mm and a height of 1,755 mm, it expresses a bold, contemporary look while maintaining its unique character.


The front of the EV9 is characterized by simple, clean lines and body surfaces, which are equally confident, clear and calm. Also highlighted by the "Digital Pattern Lighting Grille" and striking vertical headlamps, the EV9's signature "Digital Tiger Face" adds a futuristic visual look and feel. The Digital Tiger Face features two groups of LEDs in the shape of small cubes inside the bodywork adjacent to each headlight. The EV9's innovative Star Map LED daytime running lights (DRL) contribute to a new lighting experience and provide a dynamic and sophisticated light pattern, indicative of Kia's Digital Tiger Face for the brand's future electric vehicle models.

Notably, the GT-line features an exclusive 'digital light grille' that adds an element of dynamism and sophistication to its already impressive design.


In addition to its impressive exterior looks, the EV9 also excels in performance, with an impressive aerodynamic coefficient of 0.28. This has been achieved by implementing several advanced features.
