Key specifications for the Kia EV9 were previously confirmed in government documents.

The upcoming 2024 Kia EV9 electric SUV is set to arrive in Australian showrooms soon, offering a selection of battery sizes and driving ranges. The Australian government has approved the sale of the EV9, which will come in rear-wheel-drive Standard Range and all-wheel-drive Long Range variants. The Long Range model will be available in standard and GT-Line trims, featuring alloy wheels ranging from 19 to 21 inches.

The Standard Range model will have a 76.1kWh battery and a single electric motor producing 160kW/350Nm, achieving 0-100km/h in 8.2 seconds. The Long Range AWD steps up with dual motors, 283kW/600Nm, and a 99.8kWh battery, reducing the 0-100km/h time to six seconds. An overseas 'boost' feature, which is yet to be confirmed for Australia, can further increase performance.

The driving range for the Standard Range RWD has not been disclosed, but the Long Range AWD is claimed to reach 496km on the WLTP cycle. There may be three model grades, with the possibility of names like Air for the entry model and Earth for a mid-grade model, alongside the GT-Line.
