The Kia EV9 electric concept SUV will be on display at the 2023 Auto Expo, according to the first teaser released by Kia. The EV9 electric concept car from Kia was initially displayed at the Los Angeles Auto Show in 2021, and it won't go into mass production until the end of 2023.

The Electric Global Modular Platform is the foundation of the EV9 (e-GMP). It has a flat top, a boxy shape, and wide wheel arches. While the back has quirky LED tail lights, the front has a blanked-out grille with the "Star Cloud" light pattern. 22-inch wheels support the vehicle.

The full-size SUV is almost 5 meters in length, 2,055mm in width, 1,790mm in height, and has a 3,099mm wheelbase. The Kia EV9 concept was created in accordance with the company's Opposites United design ethos. The tough EV has an updated version of Kia's Digital "Tiger Face" front grille, which enables a new front air vent design.

The 77.4kWh battery pack used in the EV9 concept is also the biggest of the two battery packs offered with the smaller EV6. The 800V electrical design of the E-GMP platform allows for quick charging at rates of up to 350kW. The battery needs around 20 minutes to quickly charge from 10 percent to 80 percent.

The Kia EV9 concept has a clamshell bonnet, the trademark tiger-nose grille, false skid plates in contrast colours, a panoramic sunroof, bulky cladding all around, vertically stacked taillights, and an integrated spoiler. The model's interior is dominated by a large, single-piece section that will contain the touchscreen infotainment system and a completely digital instrument panel. There are also haptic buttons on the dashboard, a floating centre console with an armrest, ambient lighting, and A-pillar-mounted tweeters.

At the 2023 Auto Expo, Kia is also anticipated to unveil the second-generation Carnival in India in addition to a facelift for the Seltos SUV.
