Electrify America and Kia America announced their charging agreement to provide 1,000 kilowatt hours (kWh) of free charging to first-time owners of the all-new 2024 Kia EV9 all-electric three-row SUV.

The EV9's 1,000 kWh free charge is redeemable at any Electrify America charging station nationwide through the Electrify America app. 

The EV9 is the third Kia vehicle to offer free Electrify America charging, joining the Niro and EV6.

“Our agreement with Kia America highlights our commitment to a more accessible future for electric vehicle transportation,” said Robert Barrosa, president and CEO of Electrify America. “We’re excited to provide DC fast charging on our coast-to-coast network for the 2024 Kia EV9 and driving the switch to zero-emission vehicles forward.”

The EV9 is Kia's first all-electric three-row SUV. At launch, the Kia EV9 will be available with two powertrain options. The standard configuration features a 76.1 kWh battery paired with a 160 kW (215 hp) rear-wheel-drive motor. An optional 99.8-kWh battery is available in a single-motor (201-hp) configuration with an EPA-estimated 304-mile all-electric range, or in a dual-motor, 283-kW (379-hp) all-wheel-drive configuration. With a maximum DC charging rate of 236 kW, the Kia EV9 supports fast charging with compatible hyper-fast DC chargers, such as those on the Electrify America network, while its 11 kW on-board charger is designed to provide Level 2 charging.

“With the launch of the all-new Kia EV9, we are expanding this complimentary charging with Electrify America to inspire more individuals to embrace publicly available EV charging technology,” said Steven Center, COO & EVP, Kia America. “The EV9’s standard 800V electrical architecture enables hyper-fast DC charging.”

Kia EV9 owners have three years from the date of their EV9 purchase to take advantage of the 1,000 kWh of free charging. New owners are encouraged to download the Electrify America mobile app to facilitate charging and payment, locate stations, or check the status of chargers.
