KIA takes on Range Rover with large new electric SUV called EV9

It shows how the market is reacting to the advancing electric age as KIA takes on the likes of Range Rover with the launch of its big electric car, the EV9.

The latter will hit the road (and off-road) after being officially unveiled in the first quarter of next year.

And the company released “spy” pictures of the tested car (below).

In any case, it will be subjected to a serious test in all possible terrain and weather conditions.

The brand reveals that the EV9 will undergo a “grueling verification program” during its final testing phase.

A long list of hurdles includes mountaineering, rough terrain and deep water wading, as well as the unforgiving cobblestones of Belgium’s roads.

The rigorous testing program at locations around the world is designed to rival the larger 4x4s in every department.

The range-topper EV9 was shown as a concept earlier this year.

As far as we know, it will have a long wheelbase (3,100mm) – that’s the largest that can be made on the Electric Global Modular Platform – the same platform used by the EV6.

Expect a 4WD dual motor, as well as an entry-level version with a single motor driving the rear axle.

According to KIA, the EV9 was designed and engineered to “transform” the large electric SUV segment. And that can only mean that it will go head-to-head with the current giants of this sector and – yes – include the Range Rover.

Developed over 44 months, it aims to be the best it can be in terms of design, performance, range, driving dynamics, technology and comfort. KIA takes on Range Rover with large new electric SUV called EV9
