In automotive innovation, Kia has long been a frontrunner, consistently delivering vehicles that can blend style, performance, and sustainability seamlessly. With the emergence of electric vehicles (EVs) as the potential future of transportation, Kia has stepped up its game with the release of one of the first all-electric SUVs on the market: the 2024 EV9.

However, the question arises: how does the Kia 2024 EV9 compare to its more conventional counterpart, the Kia 2024 Telluride? Here, Oakes Kia will explore the features of both vehicles.

Design and Aesthetics:

The Telluride presents a bold and rugged exterior, exuding an adventurous vibe ideal for families or outdoor enthusiasts.

The EV9 showcases a sleeker, more futuristic design.

While the Telluride maintains a traditional SUV appearance, the EV9 subtly reflects its electric nature through design elements like a closed-off grille and distinctive lighting.

Performance and Powertrain:

The Telluride is equipped with a powerful internal combustion engine and AWD options, offering ample towing capacity for long journeys and off-road adventures.

The EV9 utilizes an all-electric drivetrain, delivering instant torque with the ability to go 0-60 in 4.7 seconds.

Interior Comfort and Technology:

Both vehicles prioritize passenger comfort and are great family vehicle options.

The Telluride features a spacious and luxurious cabin with three rows of seating with seating for up to 8 people.

The EV9 offers a similarly spacious interior with three rows - captions chairs in the middle - seating up to 7 people.

The EV9 upcycles waste by using recycled materials such as wool fibers and plastic bottles in seat fabric and fishing nets from the ocean in the floor carpets.

Sustainability and Environmental Impact:

In today's era of eco-consciousness, the choice between the EV9 and the Telluride extends to their ecological footprint.

The EV9 significantly reduces greenhouse gas emissions and dependence on fossil fuels because it is a zero-emission vehicle. However, purchasing chargers and adaptors are necessary.

The Telluride boasts impressive fuel efficiency and has the convenience of being able to fuel practically anywhere.

Maintenance + Warranties:

Both the Kia EV9 & Kia Telluride have a 10-year/100,000 Powertrain Warranty from Kia. Oakes Kia also offers a Complimentary LIFETIME Powertrain Vehicle on new cars through the Oakes Advantage program.

Kia EV9’s battery is covered by a 7-year warranty from Kia.

The EV9 offers minimal maintenance costs.

Kia Telluride requires regular maintenance to keep your vehicle healthy. Oakes Kia offers 2 Years of Scheduled Maintenance FREE as part of the Oakes Advantage.
