Kia EV9 Electric SUV: Why Buy or Lease It in Wesley Chapel, FL

2024 Kia EV9 | Wesley Chapel, FL

The all-new Kia EV9 is the latest model in the Kia lineup, but it does an incredible job of standing out, even among its siblings like the Telluride, Sorento, and Sportage. If you’re on the fence about getting behind the wheel of the 2024 EV9 at Kia of Wesley Chapel, here are some convincing reasons to consider this all-electric Kia SUV.

It bears a distinct design

Although the new Kia EV9 is similarly sized as the Kia Telluride, it looks distinctly different. You’ll notice an overall more modern appeal with bold, angular lines. The Kia EV9 is also available in the exclusive Ocean Blue paint color, which can be Gloss or Matte depending on your preference. It’s sure to look dazzling on the streets of Wesley Chapel.

Other exterior highlights of the EV9 include 21-inch alloy wheels with a Black and Dark Silver finish on the GT-Line AWD trim. In contrast, the largest wheels on the Telluride measure just 20 inches. The Land AWD and GT-Line AWD models also have LED cube projection headlights in the front, surrounding the first-ever Digital Pattern Lighting Grille.

It features advanced technology

The 2024 Kia EV9 is outfitted with an exceptionally modern cabin. For example, wireless charging and a 12.3-inch digital gauge display are standard on all trims. These are available on the Telluride, but you would have to consider higher trims to get both. You can opt for the 14-speaker Meridian® premium audio system on the Land AWD and GT-Line AWD trims of the EV9. The Telluride SX trim and above offer a 10-speaker Harman Kardon® audio system.

While many of the latest Kia models come with things like Kia Connect, USB-C ports, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and wireless smartphone compatibility, the new Kia EV9 takes things to the next level when it comes to keeping everything up to date. All updates in the EV9 are done wirelessly and use Kia’s latest user interface, making it simple to ensure that every feature is working as it should be.

It achieves impressive EV performance

The Kia EV9 breaks the mold when it comes to electric performance. Three of its trims deliver an exhilarating 379 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque. But if your priority here in Wesley Chapel is efficiency, the EV9 Light Long Range RWD model has you covered with 304 miles of all-electric range and can go from 10% charged to 80% charged in just 24 minutes at a 350 kW Level 3 Charger.[1]

This impressive performance can be attributed to Kia engineers who worked tirelessly to make the EV9 as aerodynamic as possible. Thanks to their hard work, the Kia EV9 has a drag coefficient of just 0.28, meaning there is very little resistance when the electric SUV is cruising on the highway in Florida, making it all the more efficient.

It already has earned many awards

We’re not the only ones who love the new EV9! Various organizations and publications around the world have praised the Kia EV with many prestigious awards.

The SUV won two awards at the 2024 World Car Awards, taking home the grand prize of World Car of the Year™ as well as the World Electric Vehicle™. The 2024 Kia EV9 was also named the North American Utility Vehicle of the Year™ during the North American Car, Truck, and Utility Vehicle of the Year™ Awards.
