Kia EV9 Sets A Record As Thailand’s First Ever All Electric Six-Seater SUV

Thailand marks yet another EV milestone with the introduction of the Kia EV9

Kia Thailand has set a monumental milestone with the launch of the Kia EV9, Thailand’s first-ever all-electric 6-seater SUV. Aligned with Kia’s corporate Plan S-5 strategy, Kia Thailand sets its sights on achieving a 5% market share with a 50% all-electric sales ratio by 2028.


Mr Jun Oh Lee, President of Kia Thailand said, “As we are evolving into a ‘Sustainable Mobility Solutions Provider,’ the EV9 stands as a cornerstone, emphasising connectivity, autonomous driving, performance, and design. Being the winner of several prestigious awards such as the Golden Steering Wheel 2023 under the ‘Family Cars’ category and the ‘Family Car of the Year’, the EV9 is not just a car; it’s a leap into the future.” 

Moreover, the Kia EV9 is an all-electric SUV designed and built for modern lifestyles in the electrified era. As the company’s first three-row electric flagship SUV, the spacious, and striking EV9 is rugged, sophisticated, and technologically advanced. Available as a six or seven-seater, it combines bold styling, premium versatility, multifaceted connectivity. 

The driving range of up to 563 kilometres is complemented by ultra-fast charging that can add up to 249km of range in 15 minutes. The Kia EV9 is also equipped with bi-directional charging, meaning not only can customers charge their EV using a wall box or public charging point, but they can also use the power stored in the EV battery to power V2L electronic appliances.


The EV9 carries the DNA of the future as it is the first Kia vehicle that comes with additional software upgrades via the Kia Connect Store, enabling customers to update and personalise their vehicle with the features they want. 

On top of that, the Kia EV9 represents a pivotal step forward in the company’s journey towards becoming a sustainable mobility solutions provider and is helping to pave the way to emission-free and fully connected mobility. Priced at THB 1,921,500 (USD54,900) in Thailand, this translates to about RM260k in Malaysia so we can expect a slightly higher price tag here.


Covered by the brand’s industry leading 7 year warranty, Kia is showing a clear commitment to ensuring one benefits from the highest standards in car manufacturing with a 7 years car quality guarantee or 150,000 km, whichever comes first, 7 years free roadside assistance service, 7 years free periodic maintenance or 150,000 km, whichever comes first and 8 years High-Voltage Battery warranty or 160,000 km, whichever comes first.
