The premium variants also include a 14-speaker Meridian auto system and massaging seats along with ambient lighting.

KIA V9 Driving Range

The manufacturer has several options depending on the market where the car will be driven. The brand plans to deliver over 336 miles for its long-range rear-wheel drive versions with its 800-volt charging capability. This will help the car achieve 149 miles of range with a charge time of 15 minutes.

The standard 2024 KIAV9 SUV supports rear-wheel drive with a 76.1-kWh battery and a 214 HP single rear-mounted motor with 258 lb-ft torque. The car achieves 62mph in 8.2 seconds. The higher-end variants have a 99.8-kWh battery and come in both rear-wheel and all-wheel drive variants.

While the manufacturer has made available some key features of its upcoming SUV, it remains tight-lipped about the pricing factor. It is expected that the starting price of the car will be in the $50,000 range. If so, this will be the price of the standard base model and the other models will have a higher price tag.

When will the KIA V9 be released?

The 2024 KIAV9 is expected to be scheduled for a release towards the end of 2023. If so, pre-orders will be possible this year and deliveries are likely to start in 2024.
