Kia is one of the highest-selling electric cars in the luxury segment. Although luxury EV adoption in India is shallow but Kia is managing to sell its premium electric cars with healthy numbers. Right now the company has just one electric car in India “EV6” but soon Kia India will add one more to its portfolio.
The Kia EV6 has been priced at over 60 lakhs in India with a range of 500km/charge. The next car EV9 is going to be a higher version of the EV6 and is expected to be a costlier one when compared to Kia EV6. The company teased the car on its Kia India official tweeter handle.
The company didn’t provide any specific date for the car launch in India but it’s expected to hit India before the end of the financial year 2022.
