Kia EV9 Impresses The 50-Member NACTOY Jury
Kia’s flagship all-electric offering, the three-row EV9, was recognised as the North American Utility Vehicle of the Year by NACTOY (North American Car, Truck and Utility of the Year). The 50-member jury included automotive experts from print, online, radio and broadcast media. As part of the screening process, the jury assesses vehicles on various fronts, including automotive innovation, design, features, performance, technology, value, user experience and driver satisfaction.
The EV9 becomes the third Kia in five years and the second all-electric model from the brand to claim the top spot in the abovementioned category. The first pure-electric Kia to bag the award was the EV6. That was voted as the top choice in last year’s ceremony.
