Kia has revealed pricing details for the trims of its EV9 ahead of opening up reservations later this month in the US. Shown off for the first time in March, the battery-powered SUV will start from $54,900, while the most expensive trim will cost $73,900.
The EV9, based on the 800 V E-GMP architecture, is offered in five trims, with the first two rear-wheel drive while the remaining three are all-wheel drive.
The base trim is the Light RWD, which promises 215 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. It has a base price of $54,900 and offers 223 miles of driving range. This is followed by the Light Long Range RWD, which goes for $59,200 but offers a lower 201 hp and is paired with a 99.8 kWh battery pack, boosting the driving range to 300 miles.
The next is the dual-motor Wind e-AWD, costing $63,900 and offering 270 miles of driving range, 379 hp, and 442 lb-ft of torque. This trim has a higher ground clearance of 7.8 inches. The Land e-AWD offers similar specs but 20 miles less driving range at $69,900. Both trims come with a heat pump and heated steering wheel.
The most expensive trim is the GT-Line e-AWD, which ups the torque to 516 lb-ft, with a driving range of 250 miles. It costs $73,900.
Reservations for the Kia EV9 start on October 16th in the US, with a refundable $750 deposit. It will be interesting to see what Kia learned from the reservation process in Canada, where reservations for the car were oversubscribed twice, leaving thousands of customers frustrated and without a reservation.
