Kia EV9 Charging Guide

Kia EV9 charging at home

This guide covers the EV9 Light, Earth and GT line. The EV9 comes with a 8A Type 2 home charger that plugs in to a standard wall socket. This will take around 41 hours to charge from 10% to 100% for the light and 54 hours for the Earth and GT line. When fully charged the Ev9 has a range of 433km WLTP for the light and 492 for the Earth and GT line. 

Due to the long charge times with a plugin charger, to fully charge the vehicle overnight we recommend investing in a Wallbox Smart EV charger. The EV9 has an onboard 11kW ac charger and supports up to 235kW DC charging. At the bottom of the page we have recommend chargers.

Public charging with the EV9

There two types of public chargers.

The CCS charger. This is a DC fast charger, these chargers have the cables attached so there is no need to bring your own.
To use these public stations download the following apps Chargenet Meridian AppShell App and BP app 

A ultra fast 210-235kW DC fast charger will charge the car from 10% to 80% in 20-24 minutes.

Type 2 Public chargers like the ones you find a super markets, malls, hotels & Motels. You will need to bring your own cable for these. Plug share will show the chargers in your area and you can see what sort of cables are needed. 

What sort of cable do I need for Public charging

We recommend a 22kW Type 2 to Type 2 cable to make use of the faster 11kW charging speeds. 
The majority of free public chargers use the Type 2 Socket, so this cable will allow you to use the chargers. Note Some public charges have a Type 2 hard wired so a cable is not needed 100% of the time.
