Hyundai has unveiled the newest member of the Ioniq electric vehicle (EV) family. This is the Seven Sport Utility Electric Vehicle (SUEV) Concept, its latest foray into promoting electric mobility as the industry shifts into more sustainable modes of transport.
The Seven is currently on display at the AutoMobility LA motor show in California through November 28. This is the third consecutive year that the Ioniq sub-brand has presented a concept EV, coming on the heels of the 45 and Prophecy revealed in 2019 and 2020, respectively. The 45 in particular has resulted in the Ioniq 5, a production crossover that continues to earn industry acclaim and will make its North American debut during the event.
“The Seven Concept demonstrates Hyundai’s creative vision and advanced technological development for our electrified mobility future,” said Hyundai Motor North America President & CEO Jose Muñoz. “It’s innovative interior space, eco-friendly powertrain, and cutting-edge safety and convenience technologies reveal an exciting future for Hyundai SUV customers.”
Hyundai touts the Ioniq Seven Concept as a new paradigm for electric vehicles
Like its earlier stablemates, the Seven uses Hyundai’s Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP) specifically engineered for EVs. This brings a long 3,200mm wheelbase and flat platform floor, translating into generous interior space for both passengers and cargo.
The Seven features an aerodynamic silhouette comprising a low hood and streamlined roofline, with a fascia showcasing the distinctive Parametric Pixel exterior lighting. Its somewhat blocky aesthetic is offset by the generous use of curves, notably on the windshield and wheel arches. Integrated active air flaps on the wheels can adjust their geometry depending on requirements, such as brake cooling and aerodynamics.
The lounge-like interior is surrounded by sustainable materials and antibacterial surfaces
Pillarless coach doors open to a lounge-like interior, surrounding occupants with asymmetrical and configurable seating made from sustainable materials. A Hygiene Airflow System and UVC sterilization work together with treated fabrics to create an antibacterial bubble in the cabin. The control stick at the driver’s seat can retract when not in use, and an onboard mini refrigerator keeps refreshments cold.
The Seven is expected to offer ultra-fast charging capability, with a 350-kilowatt charger theoretically allowing it to fill the battery from 10 to 80 percent in just 20 minutes. Hyundai says that the vehicle is engineered to achieve a range of around 500 kilometers.
