Dana Test Drives the Kia EV-9

Kia Autosport of Pensacola is one of Pensacola’s most valuable partners. If you’re paying attention, you’ll notice the Kia logo tucked neatly into promotional materials at events, for non-profit causes all over the area, and for us at Local Pulse.


This year, Kia Autosport of Pensacola is celebrating 25 years of equipping people with great cars and exceptional service. The all-new, all-electric EV9 is right on time to the celebration.

Recently, I was able to test drive the EV-9 to measure the comfort and handling, while reviewing the features. I can tell you it was a roomy, comfortable, and quiet ride. I was most impressed, however, with special features like LEG RESTS.

Are y’all listening? LEG…RESTS.

I cannot be calm about this feature. I screamed out loud when I discovered this creative new twist! As wonderful as the leg rests were, I was equally excited about the size of the console area. The large windshield was matched by 29″ of screen that had all the navigation systems within arm’s reach and digital review cameras for clear visibility on all sides.

Of course, like most, I was wondering about the charging time and distance. In just 24 minutes, you can be at 80% charged! And bonus: when you go to Bucees for Beaver Chips – bam…charging station. Of course, there are charging stations in Pensacola, but I’m always looking for a reason to take a road trip.

I was especially surprised at the towing capability of 5,000 pounds and the roof racks on top. With the generous cargo space and these additional features, it is the perfect vehicle for life on the Gulf Coast.

The car had plenty of “get up and go” as we say in the South, with 0-60 in 4.5 seconds. With plenty of options to customize, I know you will fall in love with this car like I did!
