This is going to be something special.
About a year ago, Hyundai announced the creation of an all-new sub-brand called Ioniq. This new venture is set to showcase the best that Hyundai has to offer in terms of electrified vehicles. In the months since we've seen the full reveal of the Hyundai Ioniq 5 and have caught glimpses of the Ioniq 6. Sadly, this sedan won't be quite as gorgeous as the Prophecy Concept that it was originally based on, but that won't really matter.
Thanks to a new teaser image shared on Twitter by the automaker itself, it seems that the Hyundai Ioniq 7 is the car that will steal all the headlines.
Expected to arrive in the US in 2024, the Ioniq 7 will be rather futuristic. The glasshouse seems very sleek, although it does end rather abruptly at the rear. Based on the implied proportions, it's quite clear that this will seat more than just five people, likely seven. At the front, a full-width LED headlight bar is fitted onto a smoothed front end, while vertical LED lights frame what would traditionally be the front grille.
Futuristic wheels that will likely not make production fill the squared wheel arches while the aforementioned roof appears to boast roof rails. The shoulder line sharpens at the rear and we can't see any door handles. All of these traits suggest that the Ioniq 7 will grab attention like no Hyundai product before.
As for powertrains, we know that the Ioniq range as a whole will ride on the electric E-GMP platform, but the Ioniq 7's underpinnings will obviously be a little longer. The plus side to so much space, along with more room for passengers, is that a larger battery pack can be fitted.
Hyundai says that we can expect the Ioniq 7 to feature new SK Innovation batteries with a 100-kWh capacity and technology to support 800-volt ultra-fast charging. A range of over 300 miles is expected too, and the dual-motor AWD version with produce as much as 308 horsepower. Expect more details as Hyundai trickles them out over the next few months.
