The EV9 made its market debut in November last year, boasting a starting price of $54,900. Kia positioned it as a groundbreaking addition to the electric vehicle landscape, signaling a bold shift in the industry.

Responding to market dynamics and recent price adjustments in its home market, Kia has introduced a new incentive for the 2024 EV9 in the US.

As per a memo shared with dealers (reported by CarsDirect), Kia is offering a $5,000 customer cash discount on all 2024 EV9 trims. This represents a 33% increase over the previous discount of $3,750.

With the $5,000 discount, the starting price of the EV9 can drop to $51,395 (inclusive of destination charges). Additionally, Kia is offering a $1,000 loyalty discount, potentially totaling up to $6,000 in savings. Customers might even find an additional $1,000 hidden dealer cash bonus.

In a separate move, Kia has introduced its most affordable EV6 lease yet. Priced at $279 per month, the 2024 Kia EV6 lease is more economical than many gas-powered vehicles, including the 2024 Toyota RAV4 LE, and even undercuts the Tesla Model 3.
