The top-tier model is the EV9 GT-Line e-AWD, priced at 73,900 USD, distinguished from the lower-priced variants by its unique front-end design, dark gray exterior accents, and dual-tone 21-inch wheels.

Notable interior features include premium suede headliner, stainless steel pedals, special seats with GT-Line logo, HUD screen, self-leveling suspension, Intelligent Parking Assist System, and Parking Collision-Avoidance Assist.
