December 1st, 2023 by


The all-electric 2024 Kia EV9 is here. Arriving as a new nameplate for the South Korean automaker, the EV9 aims to fill the three-row SUV slot. As of late, Kia has been focused on electric vehicles having debuted its latest concept crossover called the Kia EV3. This demonstrates Kia’s resolve to offer 11 EVs by 2026. The automaker’s latest EV is the Kia EV9. It serves as a reliable and highly capable SUV with impressive horsepower and range. Another addition is a unique sound system designed by the British firm Meridian Audio. Specializing in sound design, Meridian has equipped the all-new EV9 with an audio system designed specifically for electric vehicles. We’ll take a closer look at this technology as well as what consumers can expect from the all-new 2024 Kia EV9.

2024 Kia EV9 Features Unique Audio System

The 2024 Kia EV9 has arrived as an all-electric three-row SUV. The EV9 serves as Kia’s first family-sized electric SUV but it only marks the beginning as the South Korean automaker plans to offer a total of 11 EVs by 2026. Offering impressive capability and performance (379 horsepower), the EV9 provides families with a safe and reliable alternative to combustion engine vehicles. One unique feature incorporated into the EV9 is its audio system. Developed by the British firm Meridian Audio, the Kia EV9 features a sound system designed specifically for EVs. Meridian Audio chief executive John Buchanan commented on the system stating:

“Based on the success of our current collaborations, Kia challenged us to engineer an immersive surround sound system that will enhance the luxury experience for all occupants,” said Buchanan. “Kia wanted to retain the design purity of the EV9 concept car, so we worked closely with their design team from an early stage to ensure this could be delivered without affecting audio quality, cost, or manufacturability.”

In developing the Kia EV9’s audio system, Meridian incorporated Digital Signal Processing technology to create an immersive acoustic environment. EVs differ from combustion vehicles in that they feature more complex noises and sounds. To remedy this, Meridian engineers considered numerous factors such as vehicle speed and road characteristics. The end product was a precise audio system that provides exceptional performance affecting each seat in the electric SUV. Starting at an MSRP of $54,900 (plus destination fee), the 2024 Kia EV9 proves to be an impressive three-row SUV with a remarkable sound system.
