2024 Hyundai Ioniq 7: The Future of Seven-Passenger SUVs
Hyundai's electric SUV lineup will feature the 2024 Hyundai Ioniq 7 as its third-row crossover, utilizing the same enlarged E-GMP platform as the Kia EV9.
Initially introduced as the Seven Concept, the Hyundai Ioniq 7 retains key elements from its original design. However, certain more exaggerated styling features will be eliminated. For example, the production model will feature conventional doors and side windows instead of the pillarless Coach doors, while the front and rear lighting design will remain unchanged.
Hyundai claims that the Ioniq 7 will deliver an elevated level of spaciousness, thanks to its elongated 126-inch wheelbase, high roof, and flat floor. Sharing the E-GMP platform with the Kia EV9, the 2024 Hyundai Ioniq 7 will provide diverse drivetrain options, including single-motor rear-wheel drive choices and a dual-motor all-wheel drive variant.
Similar to other Hyundai and Kia vehicles on the E-GMP platform, the Ioniq 7 will support 800V ultrafast charging, offering convenient charging capabilities. Equipped with a 100 kWh battery, the Ioniq 7 is expected to deliver an estimated range of around 300 miles and a power output of 308 horsepower.
The Seven Concept vehicle features an innovative hygienic airflow system that employs UVC Sterilization to effectively purify and filter the air.
Hyundai has made a significant commitment to its US manufacturing operations, pledging a $7.4 billion investment over the next five years with a focus on producing electric vehicles (EVs). Following the successful introduction of the Ioniq 5 and Ioniq 6, Hyundai is currently developing the Ioniq 7, set to be unveiled later this year and potentially released in late fall or early 2024.
This car directly competes with the recently discussed the game-changing Kia EV9, as we analyzed its exterior, interior, and specifications not long ago.
