• Major award for new flagship seven-seat electric SUV
  • Third consecutive award for Kia in annual Awards
Before even the first customer delivery has taken place, Shelly Motors is delighted to announce the all-electric seven-seat Kia EV9 has been named ‘Family Car of the Year’ at the 2023 Awards.

The fully electric EV9 – Kia’s new flagship model – impressed Top Gear’s judges thanks to its combination of a family-friendly space, long driving range, in-car technology, cutting-edge design and sustainability features. The EV9 is featured in the current issue of BBC Top Gear Magazine, an issue dedicated to the best, most desirable cars in the world. A ‘Meet the Winners’ film, including the EV9, is also featured on the website.

Ollie Kew, Deputy Editor of Top Gear, commented: “We like the EV9's relaxed attitude and breezy, surfin’ USA demeanour. We like the nothing-to-prove reverse snobbery of its badge and that it’s less irritating to operate than a VW ID.Buzz, and travels significantly further on a charge. We like its Bentayga-esque massaging, heated, ventilated seats, its multitude of stowage cubbies, the simplicity of its automatic seat folding, and how it looks a bit like Iron Man’s head. It’s one of 2023’s most interesting cars not because of what it can do, but because of what it represents. Twinning going green and upmarket isn't easy, but the EV9 pulls it off with style.”
