Kia Wins Top EV Award at TAWA

By Staff Writer May 22, 2024

The Kia EV9 three-row SUV was named “Electric Vehicle of Texas” at the 2024 Texas Auto Writers Association (TAWA) Auto Roundup in April. In addition, Kia’s new flagship was deemed “Best in Class” in the Performance SUV, Mid-size CUV and Electric Vehicle categories by the attending TAWA members.

The annual competition saw more than 20 TAWA automotive journalist members from across the U.S. converge for a two-day evaluation of the industry’s best trucks, SUVs and CUVs. TAWA journalist members who attended the event evaluated participating vehicles across a wide variety of criteria.

“The Kia EV9’s trophy case continues to grow and being named the ‘Electric Vehicle of Texas’ from the 2024 TAWA Auto Roundup is further evidence that the first mainstream three-row EV SUV has wide appeal,” said Steven Center, CEO & EVP, Kia America. “Texans love their SUVs and the TAWA members are a discerning group who are well aware of that fact, which makes EV9’s recognition all the more significant for the Kia brand.”
