 Electrify America is going to give 1,000 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of free charging to first-time owners of the new 2024 Kia EV9 three-row SUV EV.

Kia EV9 drivers can get free charging at any Electrify America charging station in the US using the Electrify America app. The 1,000 kWh of charging will have to be used within three years from the date of purchase.

Along with Niro and EV6, the EV9 is Kia’s third EV9 to get complimentary Electrify America charging.

The EV9 is Kia’s first all-electric three-row SUV model. From launch, the Kia EV9 will be available with two powertrain options.
