Kia EV9 Now Cheaper: $7,500 Discount Makes Luxury Electric SUV More Affordable

  • Kia EV9 receives a substantial $7,500 discount, doubling the previous incentive, making it more affordable for buyers.
  • This discount brings the luxury electric SUV closer in price to mid-range Telluride models, enhancing its appeal to families.
  • Despite being ineligible for federal tax credits due to its South Korean production, Kia plans to move EV9 production to Georgia, potentially qualifying it for tax breaks.
  • Strong sales figures indicate the EV9’s popularity, with 1,281 units sold in March and a total of 4,007 units in the first quarter of 2024.

The Kia EV9, already celebrated as a top SUV, is now even more appealing with a big discount. Kia has slashed $7,500 off its price, making it a better deal for families.

This discount, doubling last month’s offer, brings the EV9’s cost closer to that of mid-range Telluride models.

Because the EV9 is currently made in South Korea, it doesn’t qualify for federal tax credits. But Kia plans to move production to Georgia soon, which will make it eligible for some tax breaks.

To get the full credit, the EV’s battery must also be made in the US. Kia aims to achieve this by early 2025.

Despite a slowdown in electric car sales overall, the EV9 continues to sell well since its US debut in late 2023. In March alone, Kia sold 1,281 units, adding up to 4,007 in the first quarter of 2024.

The EV6, Kia’s first electric model, also saw strong sales, with 1,537 units sold in March—an increase of 55% compared to last year. Quarterly sales of the EV6 hit 4,059 units, marking a 20% increase from the previous year.

With this new discount, Kia is staying competitive in the electric car market, responding to changes in consumer preferences and keeping pace with other automakers’ pricing strategies.
