As just KIA has revealed the specifications of its upcoming KIA EV9 SUV. Just behind it at a press interview, KIA CEO Ho Sung Song has announced there will be a GT model of the KIA EV9 which will be more powerful than the normal EV9 and it will be revealed in early 2025.
Right now CEO Ho Sung Song has just revealed there will be a GT model of KIA EV9 and it will be revealed by 2025 but he does not disclose any other specifications of it. But we can expect this upcoming KIA EV9 GT model will be more powerful than the Normal EV9 or it will have similar power as the KIA’s latest EV SUV KIA EV6 GT.
So, we can compare the performance of the EV9 GT with the KIA other GT line model KIA EV6 which is also a High-Perofrmance electric car (SUV) from KIA.
But here also the performance difference will be a little different and KIA EV9 GT will be less powerful than the EV6 due to the size of the EV9.
The KIA EV6 GT weighs 4,795 pounds whereas the exact weight of the EV9 GT is unknown right now but we can expect it could be the same as the EV9 which is around 5000 pounds. So, even if the KIA EV9 GT got the same motor and battery as EV6 GT it will produce less power due to its weight.
Whereas the KIA EV6 GT produces a total of 320 horsepower and 446 lb-ft of torque. So, we can expect the KIA EV9 GT could be producing around 300 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque.
And the 0-60 mph on the EV6 GT is around 3.5 seconds so in the EV9 GT it will be around 5-6 seconds to accelerate from 0-60 mph due to the extra weight.
So, let us know in the comment below which model you are excited to see is it the Normal KIA EV9 or the High-Performance GT model of it?
