As Hyundai approached the issue on an emotional-lifestyle line, its sister brand, Kia, didn’t mess up that much. If you want to see an exciting interior, click here to check out the Hyundai Seven study, or if you’re curious about a three-row electric SUV close to series production, stay here.
The two cars are technically the same, building on the Hyundai Group’s E-GMP electric platform in the same way as their already mass-produced smaller siblings: the Hyundai IONIQ 5 and the Kia EV6.
Kia is now looking for its identity in the unity of opposites, and so does the Concept EV9: adventurous and robust, fun and rigorous at the same time. The angular lines of the body are dissolved by soft masses.
Hyundai didn’t reveal it, Kia did: the car is 4930 x 2055 x 1790 millimeters with a wheelbase of 3100 mm. The power of the electric motor is a secret, but not that of the charger: it pumps DC power to the battery with a brutal 350 kW, which can be charged to 80% in up to 20 minutes. The range is around 480 kilometers.
The Kia has survived to the tigers, but is now in digital form. The plates formed on the bonnet are not air intakes, but solar cells – this is how the XXI. century classic style features.
The roof rails are also special: they can be retracted when not in use, thus reducing air resistance. There is no mirror, instead a camera has been placed in the car, the image of which can be seen on a pair of monitors mounted on the windshield pillar.
The theme of the angular body shapes is continued by the almost completely flat side window, which is complemented by a large panoramic sunroof.
In the interior, we find six (or rather 4 + 2) seats in three rows, the first and third rows can be rotated, so we can sit four facing each other, either using the middle row of seats as a table or with our feet hanging out in the trunk opening at the back. Of course, the car will be in series production with seven seats, much to the delight of families with many children.
There is an interactive 27-inch, ultra-wide display on the dashboard. While the Hyundai Seven was given a joystick, the Kia Concept EV9 retained the steering wheel, although the wheel is not an exact wording.
The surfaces of the interior are covered with recycled, reusable materials, the upholstery is vegan (i.e. skin-free).
