Kia showcases concept of next EV SUV

Kia launched a concept of a new electric SUV, the EV9, and the Automobility LA show, to show what its next EV brand car will look like, writes Brian Byrne.

The concept car has a strong form and is nearly five metres long. The interior includes an ultra-wide 27-inch display.

Vegan leather, which is far more ethical and sustainable compared to conventional animal leather, was used throughout the interior space. Kia plans to gradually reduce the use of animal leather in all its vehicles.
