The platform sharing kia ev9 is also designed with versatility and practicality in mind if the 7 focused on creating home like comfort in a moving vehicle. The central theme of kias version is the conversion of the suv into a platform to be in one with nature, to match the ev9s. All terrain tough looks similarly sized as the telluride ice suv. It measures nearly 5 meters or 197 inches in length while offering 3100 millimeters or 122 inches of wheelbase, which is longer than that of chevy tahoe or gmc yukon. It should be able to provide cavernous interior volume that has never been seen in a kia suv to enable such interior flexibility. The concept ev9 converts from an engaging and capable suv, underpinned by the advanced egmp dedicated ev platform, giving the driver and the passenger a thrilling experience in active mode to two innovative stationary modes. First, pause mode: modifies the interior space to be like a first class lounge, giving occupants the opportunity to directly interact with each other, while benefiting from the light streaming in from the wide panoramic roof in this mode. The seats switch around to enable occupants seated in the first row and third row, to face each other. The second row seats fold down and become a table. The second stationary mode is in joy mode, which opens the interior into a downtime breakout space. By turning around the three row seat configuration in this mode, the tailgate opens giving all occupants the opportunity to connect with the outside environment, while sitting comfortably inside the all electric suv after enjoying the following unveiling presentation from the la auto show.
