South Korean automaker KIA has finally information about the range of its upcoming 2024 KIA EV9.
As expected the range of the three-row SUV depends on the trim that is opted and will be anywhere between 230 miles and 304 miles.
2024 KIA EV9 Interiors
The interiors of the KIA EV9 render a soft feel compared to its beveled exteriors. The horizontal dash will stretch from one door to the other. There are two 12.3-inch screens for the infotainment screen and infotainment panel as well as a smaller 5.0-inch touchscreen for secondary climatic controls. All three screens are aligned such that it appears as if the car has a single extra-wide display.
The cabin will be designed using sustainable materials and most surfaces appear to have a grained-leather texture. The seats will incorporate a powered leg rest, a recline feature, a small hook-like structure for hanging anything you want and mesh headrests. The floating console in the middle will have a roll-top cover, a huge armrest bin and a wireless charger in the center. There will also be a deep tray to hold big objects.
