Hyundai Ioniq 7 will be the flagship electric car in the portfolio of the Korean carmaker.

The Hyundai Ioniq 7 electric SUV will go into production by July this year, as per a report by The Korean Carblog. This report also captures some fresh spy images of the large electric SUV wearing a heavy camouflage on its exterior. However, the cabin is partially visible, revealing some key details. The EV will be unveiled at the 2024 Busan Motor Show on June 27, 2024, and the production will commence at Hyundai’s Asan plant in South Korea.

Hyundai Ioniq 7 Electric SUV – Expected Specs

Now, we know that the Ioniq 7 is Hyundai’s counterpart to the Kia EV9. The latter in already on sale in multiple markets across the globe. That provides a fair indication about the kind of specifications we can expect from the Ioniq 7. It will be based on the E-GMP architecture which also underpins the wildly successful Ioniq 5 electric crossover and Ioniq 6 fastback electric sedan. Also, it will bear slightly larger dimensions than the Kia EV9.

The Ioniq 7 will offer both single-motor 2WD and dual-motor AWD configurations and two battery pack options. These will likely be 76.1 kWh and 99.8 kWh. These can provide a decent range figures of 230 miles (370 km) to 304 miles (489 km), as per EPA estimates. Using a 350 kW DC fast charger, the EV can recover 10-80% SoC in about 25 minutes.

In terms of output, we expect three configurations – a single-motor trim which could generate 215 hp (106 kW), a dual-motor variant good for 379 hp (283 kW) and a performance-focused dual-motor version which could belt out an impressive 576 hp (430 kW) of peak power. These numbers are what you get in the Kia EV9. Sure, we might see a marginal diversion from these numbers, but it won’t be too much. With such offerings, the Korean automaker aims to cater to all sorts of customers.

Interior and Features

When it comes to the interior of the Hyundai Ioniq 7, a few key details come to light via these spy images. The first thing that catches the eye is a colossal display which might be hiding two separate units – one for the infotainment and one for the driver’s instrument cluster. We have seen this layout with numerous modern EVs, particularly from Hyundai and Kia. But we specifically appreciate the availability of the physical buttons for HVAC and multimedia.

This test mule also carries cameras instead of the orthodox door mirrors with screens relaying the camera feed on the A-pillars inside the cabin. Power controls for the driver’s seat are also visible in one image. There is a central tunnel between the front seats where a bottle of water is securely placed, indicating large space. All in all, the cabin will be spacious and ultra-modern.
