At the ongoing Auto Expo 2023, Kia India showcased a glimpse of the future where mobility is more sustainable, innovative, and truly connected. The company has unveiled its all-electric SUV – the Concept EV9, highlighting its vision of becoming a sustainable mobility solutions provider. 

The Concept EV9 is inspired by nature and uses upcycled materials developed from waste deposited into the fragile marine ecosystem. Based on the brand's latest design language, Opposites United, this Concept is influenced by the 'Bold for Nature' pillar, helping the all-electric SUV concept to take on an iconic and bold form.

The company has also showcased the Kia KA4, offering sophisticated design, safety, innovation, and capabilities of advanced drive dynamics. The vehicle hosts a bold SUV-like design for an enhanced road presence. Coupled with advanced driving dynamics, the Kia KA4 embodies a combination of design, capability, safety, and luxury.

Furthermore, the vehicle maker announced its entry into the Purpose-Built Vehicles (PBVs) segment, addressing the unmet need of specialised institutions. The vehicles under BVs showcased include a police van and an ambulance based on the Carens. 

Kia India further announced an investment of INR 2,000 crore in India for EV related R&D, manufacturing, and infrastructure development.

Tae-Jin Park, Managing Director & CEO, Kia India said, 'With the launch of EV6, we started our electrification journey in India and today, with the unveiling of the concept EV9, we are presenting our vision of the future. With KA4, we want to showcase our might in the popular UV segment, offering bold design & capability, safety and luxury, packed in one large Recreational Vehicle. With the PBVs, we once again successfully recognised an unmet need of the Indian market, offering inspiring mobility solutions for specialised institutions. So far, we have received overwhelming love and acceptance from the people of this country, and we assure them that we will remain committed to fulfilling their unmet and even unfelt mobility needs and wants.'
