2024 Kia EV9 Zero Emissions, Zero Anxiety

As EVs gain popularity and initiatives push us further toward an electric future, it’s understandable that consumers are apprehensive about how this will affect their lives. Thankfully, the technology and battery components used in EVs have improved significantly over the years. The 2024 Kia EV9 comes with an 800-volt electrical architecture that allows ultrafast charging on high-speed DC chargers, which can charge from ten percent to 80 percent in just 25 minutes.

Some benefits of an EV include:

Zero emissions

EVs completely cut out tailpipe emissions, which in turn helps to reduce smog pollution and greenhouse gasses. Cutting down on emissions improves air quality and quality of life.

Financial incentives

There are many federal, state, and local programs that offer tax credits and rebates to help lower the cost of switching to an EV. The Department of Energy has compiled a comprehensive list of Connecticut laws and incentives to familiarize yourself with. You can also expect to save money on fuel, utility, and maintenance, due to the fact that EVs have fewer moving parts and don’t require as much maintenance as a traditional car with a gas engine does.

Hundreds of charging stations

According to ChargeHub, there are 138 charging stations in Hartford alone, with 49 percent of them being free stations. Connecticut has 681 public charging stations throughout the entire state.

Higher performance

Because electric motors produce instant torque from a standstill and have no gears to shift through, EVs can accelerate quickly with no lag, making them fun to drive.
