Is The Kia EV9 The New Family-Friendly EV?

From Transport Evolved.

We’ve driven plenty of e-GMP based cars before on this channel – including the Kia EV6, EV6 GT, Hyundai IONIQ 5, IONIQ 6 and of course Genesis GV60. But to date, we’ve not had a chance to drive the largest Hyundai-Kia based EV to date – the 2024 Kia EV9.

We’ve spent a week with the 2024 Kia EV9 GT-Line AWD, and we’re here with our thoughts on the first three-row SUV based on the e-GMP platform.
Is it really ready to be the affordable family-friendly EV? And should you consider one?
