Kia has provided details of the final testing program undertaken by the Kia EV9 ahead of
its world debut in 2023. The all-electric Kia EV9 will become the marque’s flagship model
and the Korean company says it will, “revolutionise the large electric SUV segment, while
accelerating Kia’s brand transformation and affirming its leadership in sustainable electric
During this final testing phase, the EV9 is relentlessly to a verification program on a 4WD
climbing hill and a rough terrain track, as well as a deep-water wading test, to ensure
maximum reliability even in the most challenging conditions.
Kia’s high-speed, handling, and low-friction tracks place every element of the EV9’s
performance and roadholding under tough scrutiny.
At the same time, the unforgiving cobbles of Belgian roads enable Kia’s engineers to
subject the EV9’s ride comfort and build quality to the harshest possible trials. In addition
to the test program at Namyang R&D center, like every Kia model, the EV9 has also been
subjected to a punishing testing regimen in locations all over the globe.
