Kia has recently announced their plans to introduce two new electric vehicles (EVs) to the Indian market in 2025. While the specific models have not been confirmed, it is known that the EV9 is set to launch later this year as the brand’s flagship vehicle.

Potential New Models

Kia previously hinted that electrified versions of the Carens would be available in emerging markets, making the electric MPV likely part of Kia’s Indian lineup. Another model expected to be launched in India is the Clavis, a new SUV positioned between the Sonet and the Seltos. This positioning aims to create a new segment between sub-4 meter compact SUVs and compact SUVs.

Launch of the EV9

In addition to the new models, Kia has confirmed that the EV9 electric SUV will be launched in India. The EV9, the brand’s flagship electric SUV globally, was showcased as a concept at Auto Expo 2023. This model will play a significant role in Kia’s electric vehicle strategy in India.

Features of the EV9

The Kia EV9 will be built on the Electric Global Modular Platform (E-GMP), which also underpins the EV6, Kia’s first electric car. The EV9 measures over five meters long, comparable to the global SUV Telluride. It will be available in six or seven-seat configurations and will be offered in two variants: HT Line and GT Line.

Current Electric Lineup in India

As of now, Kia’s electric lineup in India consists of the EV6, available in two variants – GT Line and GT Line AWD. These variants are priced at ₹60.95 lakh and ₹65.95 lakh, respectively (ex-showroom prices). The introduction of the EV9 and other upcoming models is expected to expand Kia’s electric vehicle presence in the Indian market.

Conclusion

Kia’s strategic push into the Indian electric vehicle market with multiple new models, including the flagship EV9, signifies their commitment to expanding their EV portfolio. With the anticipated launch of the Carens electric MPV and the Clavis SUV, Kia aims to cater to a broad range of consumer preferences and create new segments within the market.
