Kia EV9 Crowned World's Best Car for 2024 by Global Women Jurors

In a resounding celebration of automotive innovation and eco-friendly mobility, the Kia EV9 has been crowned the World’s Best Car for 2024 by the esteemed Women’s Worldwide Car of the Year (WWCOTY) jury. This prestigious accolade, announced on the occasion of International Women’s Day, solidifies the EV9’s position as a trailblazer in the rapidly evolving electric vehicle landscape.


Marta Garcia, the executive president of WWCOTY, expressed her admiration for the exceptional quality of this year’s contenders, stating, “This year’s election was particularly difficult due to the excellent level of all the candidates.” The Kia EV9 emerged victorious from a formidable lineup of finalists, each a category winner in its own right, including the Volvo EX30 (Best Family Car), BMW 5 Series (Best Large Car), Volkswagen Amarok (Best 4×4 & Pick-up), and the Aston Martin DB12 (Best Exclusive Car).


The road to glory was paved with rigorous evaluation by 75 women motoring journalists hailing from 52 countries across five continents. These automotive experts meticulously assessed a staggering 63 vehicles launched across at least two continents between January 1 and December 31, 2023, leaving no stone unturned in their pursuit of excellence.


The Kia EV9’s triumph was attributed to its “cutting-edge design, incorporating advanced technology and offering both bidirectional charging and ultra-fast charging capabilities.” This electric marvel not only captured the hearts of the jurors but also secured the coveted title of Best SUV before claiming the ultimate World’s Best Car of 2024 crown.


This prestigious WWCOTY award is not the first accolade bestowed upon the Kia EV9 this year. In January, the electric SUV was honored with the North American Car, Truck, and Utility Vehicle of the Year (NACTOY)’s 2024 SUV of the Year, further solidifying its position as a force to be reckoned with in the automotive world.


The Kia EV9’s remarkable achievement has also garnered international recognition, with the World Car Awards naming it as one of three finalists for the 2024 World Car of the Year, alongside the Volvo EX30 and the BYD Seal. The winner of this highly anticipated contest will be unveiled on March 27, 2024, at the prestigious New York International Auto Show.

As the Kia EV9 basks in the glory of its well-deserved triumph, it serves as a shining example of the profound impact that innovative thinking and a commitment to sustainability can have on the automotive industry. With its cutting-edge design, advanced technology, and eco-friendly ethos, the EV9 stands as a beacon of hope for a greener and more exciting future on the open road.
