The Hyundai Ioniq 7 is going to be the third Ioniq model to come out which should close the first era of fully electrified Ioniq models. It is going to be a mid-size electric SUV that should be the most futuristic serial production car Hyundai ever made. The Ioniq 5 has been out for a while and the Ioniq 6 is coming to the market in a few months’ time.
In this article, we are going to tell you all about the 2024 Hyundai Ioniq 7 – What to look forward to, and what to expect from one of the very first attainable mid-size electric SUVs that is bound to be a success if the first two Ioniq models are anything to go by. However, the Ioniq 5 is slated to be revealed sometime in 2023 while sales aren’t going to go for a year more.
This means that 2024 is probably the year when these will start going out to customers. There really isn’t too much data about the Ioniq 7 at the moment, but we have gathered as much information as we can into a single article so you can get a better understanding of what to expect.
All in all, the Ioniq 7 is definitely going to be a good car if these initial forecasts are correct. As such, you have a lot to look forward to.
Hyundai Ioniq 7 – Size and Platform
The Hyundai Ioniq 7 is said to be a mid-size family SUV, but it is going to be available with up to seven seats. This means that Hyundai is aiming for impressive space management where they don’t have to make a humongous SUV in order for it to fit 7 people. As such, the Ioniq 7 is likely going to be an electrified rival to the existing Hyundai Palisade.
The Ioniq 7 is based on the Hyundai E-GMP platform which offers an 800-volt battery infrastructure that manages heat and stress better than your normal 400-volt system found in most cars these days. This also means that the Ioniq 7 should get the maximum DC fast charging rate of 350kW which can charge existing E-GMP models in less than 20 minutes.
Hyundai Ioniq 7 – Design and Special Features
When it comes to exterior design, the Ioniq 7 is said to look really close to the existing Ioniq 7 concept, but as we all know, Concept cars never really end up on the road which was also the case with the Ioniq 5, and the Ioniq 6. Be that as it may, the Ioniq 7 concept is not as radical as the previous two concept cars were so there is a chance that the real Ioniq 7 is not going to be too different.
The Ioniq 7 is going to feature more than 700 parametric pixels which will do things such as showing you the state of charge from the outside and will also make up the exterior lighting of the car. The Ioniq 7 is also said to feature next-gen interior ambient lighting, the use of advanced and recycled materials throughout, and e-ASD which stands for electric active sound design.
Hyundai Ioniq 7 – The Specs
Bear in mind that these specs are not yet set in stone which means that there is a great deal of chance that some of these are going to change down the line. However, most are likely to remain the same. The Ioniq 7 is likely going to be around 196 inches in length and around 82 inches in width, and 70 inches in height with a wheelbase of 126 inches.
It is expected for the Ioniq 7 to be available with both FWD and AWD for the top-spec models. The top-end battery is likely to be above 100kW, power is set to be over 300hp, and EPA estimated range is expected to be at 300 miles +. We already mentioned that the Ioniq 7 features an 800-volt architecture and a fast-charging rate of 350kW.
Hyundai Ioniq 7 – Advanced Technology
When it comes to autonomous driving, the Ioniq 7 is likely going to build upon the existing tech found in the Ioniq 5 and the Ioniq 6. This means that it is going to get a Level 3 autonomy level which should enable it to “manage safety functions under certain conditions, but the driver is expected to take over when alerted.”
The autonomous RSPA2 parking pilot feature is also likely to make its debut with the Ioniq 7 which means remote parking. A new infotainment system is also likely to debut with the Ioniq 7 and a new “digital key” as well. The Ioniq 7 should also be able to power up external devices, even your house as is the case with the Ford F150 Lighting.
Is Hyundai Ioniq 7 going to come with free charging?
Hyundai USA has stated that customers of the Hyundai Ioniq 7 will get a special deal that will enable them to charge their Ioniq 7 models for free for as long as two years using Electrify America charges. It is said that your charging sessions will be limited to 30 minutes at a time which is enough to charge your battery up to 80% with a 350kW charger.
How much is the Hyundai Ioniq 7 going to cost?
There is little to no data about how much the Ioniq 7 is going to cost when it eventually rolls out of the factory, but some estimates place the Ioniq 7 starting price at around $55,000. This is quite a step up from even the top-spec Hyundai Palisade which costs less than $50,000 from new.
Is Hyundai going to offer the Hyundai Ioniq 7 “N”?
The Hyundai Ioniq 7 N is likely going to be available sometime after the initial release of the Hyundai Ioniq 7. The N model should feature upwards of 500hp because that is the case with the upcoming Hyundai Ioniq 6 N and the existing Kia EV6 GT. However, this is not yet 100% confirmed, so we will have to wait and see.
