Hot off the heels of its carbon neutrality announcement, Hyundai is previewing another electric vehicle. This time the company is providing our first glance at the upcoming Ioniq 7, which will be a full-size electric SUV.
News of the Ioniq 7 is not new. Hyundai has been disclosing plans for a larger EV SUV for awhile now, which will be an integral part of its Ioniq EV strategy. This large SUV is expected to offer seating for six or seven passengers and slot above the Ioniq 5 that has already been revealed.
The teaser shot doesn’t show us a ton, but it does provide a glimpse at the Ioniq 7’s scale. It is notably larger than the Ioniq 5, though the overall design theme seems in-line with the smaller Ioniq model. This means a rakish windshield and surfacing that is similar to other recent Hyundai models appears in-tow here. Hyundai opted to tease the Ioniq 7 alongside a concept version of the Ioniq 6 sedan and production Ioniq 5.
The Ioniq 7 is expected to arrive in the U.S. sometime in 2024. Like other Ioniq models, it is based on Hyundai’s E-GMP architecture for dedicated EV’s. This iteration of the architecture has been stretched, allowing room for Hyundai to slot in a 100-kWh battery pack. This larger pack is expected to offer at least 300 miles of total range. Subsequently, Hyundai has confirmed the Ioniq 7 will offer a dual-motor all-wheel drive option with 308 horsepower.
Expect to learn more about the Hyundai Ioniq 7 over the next six months. Hyundai is expected to reveal a concept version of its EV SUV prior to the production version.
