Following in-depth evaluations by 75 of the top female motoring journalists from 52 countries across five continents, the Kia EV9 emerged triumphant from a field of 63 contenders. The EV9’s latest critical accolade underscores the all-electric SUV’s unparalleled versatility and exceptional ability to meet the diverse needs of consumers globally.

With a seven-seat capacity and innovative design, the Kia EV9 sets new standards in the electric SUV segment, showcasing advanced technology and exceptional performance. Noteworthy features include space-for-seven and ultra-fast charging capabilities, which set benchmarks for practicality and convenience.

The judges praised the EV9 as a groundbreaking addition to the electric vehicle market, citing its affordability, user-friendliness, and widespread appeal. Kia’s innovation in crafting a large SUV with outstanding aerodynamics and advanced technology, as well the SUV’s family-friendly interior and familiar driving experience, was commended. The versatility and performance of Kia’s flagship model, especially in challenging winter conditions, were highlighted, alongside its spacious interior and robust performance. In addition, Kia was lauded for delivering a future-proof, multi-purpose electric vehicle with exceptional range and energy efficiency.

This year’s recognition for the EV9 follows the triumph of the Kia Niro last year, which was named the ‘World’s Best Car for 2023’ in the 2023 WWCOTY awards. The Kia EV9 continues its impressive streak of award wins, which include being named a ‘Top Three in the World’ finalist contender for the 2024 World Car Awards. The SUV also clinched the ‘Family Cars’ category at the Golden Steering Wheel 2023 and was named German Luxury Car of the Year 2024, showcasing the model’s wide spectrum of capabilities. Just yesterday, the Kia EV9 was also named ‘UK Car of the Year 2024’, voted for by 30 of the UK’s top automotive, business and technology-focused journalists.
