Kia EV9 Clinches Gold Awards

Kia EV9 Clinches Prestigious Gold Award for Design Excellence, among other brands.

Kia Motors has once again affirmed its commitment to outstanding design and innovation by clinching five prestigious iF Design Awards across various categories, underscoring the brand’s excellence in product design, events, and communication strategies.

At the forefront of Kia’s triumph is the acclaimed Kia EV9, which secured the coveted ‘Gold’ award, a testament to its groundbreaking design and the enduring influence of Kia’s ‘Opposites United’ design philosophy. This philosophy, which harmoniously blends contrasting elements like nature and modernity, serves as the guiding principle behind Kia’s striking and contemporary designs.

The EV9, embodying this philosophy, boasts a confident and serene exterior characterized by clean lines, flat surfaces, and Kia’s signature Digital Tiger Face, which exudes a futuristic appeal. It offers exceptional spaciousness and refinement, leveraging the E-GMP platform to create a comfortable and inviting cabin environment.

Moreover, the EV9 aligns with Kia’s sustainability initiatives, incorporating features like the ‘three-stage sustainable design strategy’ aimed at reducing animal-sourced leather and promoting the use of eco-friendly materials.

The EV9‘s innovative design impressed the iF judges, who praised its aesthetic appeal and functional performance, particularly highlighting its social-friendly features such as swiveling second-row seats.

Complementing the EV9’s design excellence is the ‘Ki’ infotainment system, which received recognition in the Product Interfaces category. The ‘Ki’ system, with its eye-catching graphic style and intuitive user interface, enhances the overall driving experience while reflecting Kia’s brand identity and values.

In addition to the EV9 and ‘Ki’ infotainment system, Kia’s branding for ’80 years of movement,’ its ‘Windows of Inspiration’ trade fair booth design, and the ‘Kia EV Unplugged Ground’ interactive media experience were also honored by the iF Design Awards, further underscoring Kia’s multifaceted approach to design excellence.

The iF Design Awards, founded in 1954, are renowned for their rigorous selection process and global recognition. Each year, thousands of designs from around the world are evaluated across various categories, with winners selected based on their contemporary relevance and impact.

Kia’s success at the iF Design Awards reaffirms its position as a leader in automotive design and innovation, setting new standards for excellence and creativity in the industry. As Kia continues to push the boundaries of design, its commitment to delivering compelling and meaningful design experiences remains unwavering.
