Design: Exterior and Interior
The EV9 is an electric car in a bold and modern style. A digital tiger face grille with vertical LED headlights and a body-colored uniform volume is on the front fascia. The side profile has a smooth, aerodynamic shape, and the auto-flush door buttons make it easier and more efficient. LED combination lamps at the back of the car cover the whole width of it, giving it a unique look. The EV9 also has a dual panoramic sunroof and two-tone color choices that make it look better.
The EV9’s interior is roomy and comfy thanks to its flat floor and fully flat-folding seatbacks that can be set up differently. A panoramic wide display with a 12.3-inch instrument panel, a 12.3-inch touchscreen system, and a 5-inch HVAC screen are some of the high-end features inside the car. The EV9 also has a full-view monitor, a head-up display, and dual-color atmospheric lighting. It can be charged wirelessly. Relaxation comfort seats with dynamic body care are added to the GT-Line trim. These seats change to the driver’s position and rub them.
