At the end of last year, Hyundai showed the ‘SEVEN Concept’ in society, which anticipates what the Hyundai IONIQ 7 will be. And it is a large SUV built on the E-GMP platform, the same as the IONIQ 5, the KIA EV6, and the future IONIQ 6. So this model will have an 800 V architecture, among other things to accept a reference quick charge for your battery, and a range of up to 500 kilometers as planned.
Thanks to Gotcha Cars we have a representation that tries to anticipate what the Hyundai IONIQ 7 will be like when it reaches production. A design that bears resemblance to the conceptual prototype presented by the Korean brand, but which has undergone some notable evolutions. After all, it is common for this to happen when a model is brought into production. And in this recreation, we can see an almost identical front end, featuring the Pixel LED lighting strip at the top, but with a large typical grille that leaves two main optics, each one on one side. And the bumper, of course, shows more defined forms on the bottom.
The keys to the Hyundai IONIQ 7, a huge electric SUV with great autonomy
As we advanced, the Hyundai IONIQ 7 will be built on the E-GMP platform shared by Hyundai and KIA and which, among other things, has the particularity of its 800 V architecture. This, which in the future will be shared by all-electric cars, and today they only offer a few, makes them more efficient in managing the energy of their battery and, in addition, they support much higher charging speeds. They can technically reach up to 350 kW, although the infrastructure is not yet ready to enjoy these capacities.
This new Hyundai IONIQ 7 is expected to have a 100 kWh battery, at least in one of its versions. It will be the largest model to be built on the E-GMP platform, with dimensions similar to those of the Hyundai Palisade, and is expected to offer a range of approximately 500 kilometers with this large lithium-ion battery.
According to the information available so far, everything indicates that the basic versions will have a rear-wheel-drive system thanks to a single electric motor, also rear. But it is also planned that there will be versions with all-wheel drive, which would reach up to 310 hp of maximum power, approximately. But one of the key points of this model will be its interior, not only because of its great habitability and its great space but also because it configured up to 7 seats and a more premium approach than any other Hyundai before it.

For now, this is the closest we can get to the exterior appearance of the Hyundai IONIQ 7 when it reaches production. Soon we should have new official information regarding the model, although perhaps the most interesting thing to know will be its interior. And of course, also the technological equipment that this model will have, will be considered the top of the range within the brand’s electric car catalog.
