  • The battery-electric 2024 Kia EV9’s MSRP starts at $54,900 before any destination charges.
  • The three-row EV9 targets 300 miles of range in single-motor trim with a long-range battery.
  • The base-model Kia EV9’s single motor sends 215 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque to the rear wheels and targets 223 miles of range.

Kia’s hotly anticipated, three-row EV9 finally has a base price, kind of. The 2024 Kia EV9 will start at $54,900 before any mandatory fees, like delivery and destination charges, push that up further. This entry-level Light trim is the most basic EV9 available, and pricing for the flashier, more powerful, and longer-range EV9 models is still to come ahead of its launch.

This Light model comes with a single rear motor that sends 215 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque to the rear wheels. Feeding this single motor is the smallest battery of the lineup, which packs 76.1 kWh of electricity in its lithium-ion cells. As you’d imagine, this base-price EV9 doesn’t offer the most range at only 223 miles, but the available larger battery cranks the range up to 300 miles.

The base-model EV9’s price also pits it against a well-equipped Kia Telluride. The internal-combustion Telluride’s most expensive SX Prestige X-Pro trim starts at $54,550, including the destination charge. Obviously, it’s hard to compare the two vehicles on merit, but Kia’s popular Telluride shares a similar footprint and seating arrangement.

The EV9 is scheduled to hit the road later this year. We’re interested to see how much the long-range battery adds to the Light’s trim, and the pricing for the Wind, Land, and GT-Line trims.
