The Kia EV9 is a fully electric SUV that can seat seven adults in comfort, and has a healthy range between charges. However, if you can live with five seats or are prepared to consider petrol and plug-in hybrid alternatives, the EV9 doesn’t stack up quite so well. The cheapest RWD Air model makes the most sense, because it has the longest range and is well equipped.

You’ll need to go for at least this trim level if you want four-wheel drive, but on top of everything that comes with entry-level Air, GT-Line adds 21in alloys, sportier styling, more comfortable front seats and adaptive headlights.

Four-wheel-drive versions of the EV9 are seriously quick with 0-62mph taking just 5.3 seconds. They cost more, though, and the official range between charges drops to 313 miles.
