What To Expect

Following the Kia EV9’s introduction for the 2024 model year, we expect the 2025 model to arrive as a carryover with minimal updates. That being said, there will be a significant change to the EV9 lineup, as the EV9 GT will be making its debut as a 2025 model.

Per Car and Driver, the EV9 GT will be joining the lineup and share the EV6 GT’s 576-hp dual-motor 77.4-kWh powertrain. That’s big news, as the 2024 EV9 is offered with a choice of a 201 and 379-hp electric powertrain. Electrek recently reported that the EV9 GT can accelerate to 62 mph in 4.0 seconds and will launch in January of next year. That could mean we'll see the EV9 GT debut as a 2026 model, but we'll know for sure when it arrives.

Being a carryover model, we’re not expecting any changes to the EV9’s boxy Telluride-of-the-future styling, save for added performance-inspired bits on the GT model. Kia hasn’t shown us the EV9 GT yet, but we expect fatter tires, bigger wheels, beefier brakes, and maybe even a bit of a wing.

We don’t expect any significant changes to the 2025 EV9’s interior, except the GT model will likely get performance gauges and seats with more bolstering. The 2024 EV9’s cabin features dual 12.3” screens, a spacious and futuristic design, Kia’s next-generation infotainment system, and seating for six or seven, depending on the configuration.

2025 Kia EV9 Price & Release Date

No official release date has been announced, but we expect to see the 2025 Kia EV9 arrive at dealerships sometime in 2024. Pricing isn’t available yet either, but we expect incremental increases over the trims available for the 2024 model, and the GT may reach the $80,000 mark.

The 2025 EV9 will compete with the Tesla Model Y, Ford Mustang Mach-E, Genesis GV70 Electrified, Nissan Ariya, and Rivian R1S.
