At the 2024 Busan Motor Show in June, Hyundai is set to unveil its latest electric marvel, the Ioniq 7. Positioned as the flagship three-row SUV in the Ioniq family, it follows the footsteps of its well-received predecessors, the Ioniq 5 electric crossover and the Ioniq 6 electric sedan. The vehicle will be the third addition to the Hyundai’s dedicated EV lineup. 

Let’s delve into the key information of this third member in the Hyundai family of electric cars:

Production Details

Production of Ioniq 7 is slated to commence in Hyundai’s home country, South Korea, coinciding with its global unveiling. Furthermore, the SUV is scheduled to roll off Hyundai’s manufacturing facility in Georgia, USA, starting the next year.

Design Elements and Testing Phases

The Ioniq 7’s design is influenced by the Seven concept, unveiled at the LA Auto Show in 2021, as indicated by spy images captured during road testing. While the exterior mirrors the conceptual version in terms of lighting systems, roofline, and overall dimensions, enthusiasts eagerly await the official unveiling for a closer look. Built on the E-GMP skateboard platform, similar to the EV9, the Ioniq 7’s battery packs and electric motors may undergo minor adjustments in capacities and outputs.

Versatile Powertrain Configurations

Expect a diverse range of powertrain configurations for the Ioniq 7 to cater to various market demands. The base model may feature a single electric motor, delivering an impressive 218 PS. Simultaneously, a dual electric motor setup is anticipated, potentially achieving a combined power output of 585 PS.

Here are some more key expected  specifications of the upcoming Ioniq 7:

The upcoming three-row SUV boasts a distinctive feature – a massive rectangular screen that spans from behind the steering wheel to the center of the dashboard, serving the dual purpose of an instrument cluster and an infotainment screen. Alongside this innovation, traditional buttons for HVAC and radio controls are also retained. Adding to the modern appeal, the test vehicle replaces conventional road mirrors with cameras, displaying rearview images on screens positioned at the top of the door cards. This blend of cutting-edge technology and familiar controls enhances both functionality and the overall driving experience.

Market Dynamics and Competition

With the Ioniq 5 already available in India through the CKD route, Hyundai has gained a solid presence in the electric vehicle market. Meanwhile, the Ioniq 6, a contender against the Tesla Model 3, was showcased at the 2023 Auto Expo in India, signaling a potential entry into the market. As Hyundai’s global push for electric mobility continues, the Ioniq 7 could prove significant, especially with Kia planning to introduce the EV9 three-row electric SUV in India.

Anticipation for Local Market Entry

While the Ioniq 7 undergoes rigorous testing abroad, enthusiasts and industry observers eagerly anticipate its potential entry into local markets. As Hyundai solidifies its position in the electric vehicle landscape, the Ioniq 7 holds the promise of offering a powerful and versatile addition to the brand’s growing EV lineup.
