Kia EV9 Crowned ‘Family Car of the Year’ at 2023 TopGear.com Awards


Kia EV9 Top Gear Awards

In a remarkable achievement, the Kia EV9 has been crowned the ‘Family Car of the Year’ at the esteemed 2023 TopGear.com Awards. This marks the third consecutive award for Kia in the annual TopGear.com Awards, solidifying its position as an industry leader in electric vehicles.

The EV9, Kia’s latest flagship seven-seat electric SUV, captured the attention of Top Gear’s judges for its exceptional combination of family-friendly space, extended driving range, cutting-edge in-car technology, and a forward-thinking design with sustainability features. The recognition is prominently featured in the latest edition of BBC Top Gear Magazine, dedicated to showcasing the best and most desirable cars globally. Additionally, a ‘Meet the Winners’ film, featuring the EV9, is available on the TopGear.com website.

Ollie Kew, Deputy Editor of Top Gear, remarked, “We like the EV9’s relaxed attitude and breezy, surfin’ USA demeanour. It’s one of 2023’s most interesting cars not because of what it can do, but because of what it represents. Twinning going green and upmarket isn’t easy, but the EV9 pulls it off with style.”

The EV9 boasts an impressive driving range of up to 349 miles (WLTP combined cycle) and features 800V ultra-fast charging technology, allowing it to charge from 10-to-80 percent in just 24 minutes from the fastest public chargers.*

Available for order in the UK, the EV9’s first customer deliveries are scheduled to commence from January 2024. With a starting price of £64,995 for the rear-wheel drive ‘Air’ model, it offers a compelling option in the electric SUV market. The range extends to £73,245 for all-wheel drive ‘GT-Line’ models and reaches £75,995 for the top-tier all-wheel drive ‘GT Line S’ models. An exclusive six-seat model is also available from £76,995. All UK models feature a long-range 99.8kWh battery pack, heat pump, and a three-row seating layout.

Following the success of the Kia EV6 and Niro EV, the EV9 is the latest addition to Kia’s expanding family of electric vehicles. As part of an ambitious global strategy, Kia aims to offer a lineup of 15 fully electric vehicles by 2027. Recently unveiled at the brand’s 2023 ‘EV Day,’ the Concept EV3, Concept EV4, and the production-ready EV5 further underscore Kia’s commitment to leading and accelerating the EV revolution.
