Kia’s New EV9 Concept Offers Modular Interior To Fit Your Fashion
Kia’s new concept, the EV9 (pictured), gives a preview of what its next fully electric SUV concept will look like.
What they describe as the “revolutionary new design language” translates to “an adventurous and angular exterior”.
The car is on display at AutoMobility LA.
It is considered so far as the clearest signal of what the company has planned with and for its next EV.
Like the recently arrived EV6, it is built specifically on the company’s advanced Global Modular Electric (E-GMP) platform.
They say the design, inspired by nature, uses recycled materials developed from waste deposited in the marine ecosystem.
The three-row concept is 4,930mm long, 2,055mm wide, 1,790mm high, a 3100mm wheelbase and 22-inch wheels.
For the sake of aerodynamics, it also features retractable roof racks that close inward when not in use – and open at the push of a button.
A new generation camera system replaces conventional exterior mirrors and further improves aerodynamics. And there is a panoramic roof.
Inside, there is a 27-inch ultra-wide interactive screen that acts as the nerve center of driver and passenger requirements.
Fascinating that the car also has three “avant-garde” interior modes. The active mode is when the car is in motion.
In Pause mode, the seats tilt so that the first row and third row are facing each other. The second row seats fold down and become a table.
Enjoy mode opens the tailgate and “lets in” the outdoors while you sit comfortably inside.
Hoping that we will have the time to take advantage of it.
