Spy Shots Reveal Less Camo on Upcoming Hyundai Ioniq 7 Prototype

Preview these ready-to-use head- and taillights for your production needs.

Hyundai’s soon-to-be-released Ioniq 7, a spacious SUV, has been seen undergoing testing in South Korea prior to its official debut later in the year. It is the initial instance of catching sight of the electric car equipped with headlights and taillights that are ready for production, and they are undeniably appealing.

Looking at the back of the car, the vertical taillights have a similar design to the Hyundai Staria, a modern-looking minivan that is not available for purchase in the United States. The third brake light is quite elegant and extends over the roof spoiler. Additionally, there’s a touch of Cadillac Escalade in the square shape of the rear.

The sleek outline of a glasshouse highlights the understated edges of the car’s waistline, giving the Ioniq 7 a stronger appearance. Despite being covered in camouflage, the vehicle still manages to exude charm and elegance.

At the forefront, we can observe another design element influenced by Staria, and it is the lightbar. It is evident that this vehicle will bear a striking resemblance to the Ioniq 5. However, it is unclear if the entire lightbar will function as a daytime running light, but we assume it will. This style concept has also been incorporated into the Hyundai Grandeur luxurious sedan, which is not available in the United States. The lower lights on the Ioniq 7 resemble those of the Grandeur as well.

It is pleasing to witness Hyundai remaining faithful to the innovative aesthetic showcased on their Seven prototype back in 2021. We anticipate that the Ioniq 7, when released, will be somewhat less striking, however, similar to Kia’s accomplishment with the EV9, it can still capture the essence of its concept counterpart and translate it into a practical vehicle.

Similar to the EV9 portrayed in the accompanying picture, the Ioniq 7 will likewise utilize Hyundai’s E-GMP platform.

The foundation of this platform is currently being utilized for the Hyundai Ioniq 5 and the Ioniq 6. Our predictions indicate that the Ioniq 7 will likely adopt similar choices for its drivetrain, following in the footsteps of the EV9. This means that a base model with a single motor can be anticipated, delivering a solid 215 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. Higher trim levels will also have twin motors, providing an impressive output of up to 379 hp and 516 lb-ft. As expected, customers will have the option of selecting rear- or all-wheel drive.

The battery size varies from 76.1 kWh to 99.8 kWh. It should also be noted that an upgraded version of the EV9 will be released, hinting at the possibility of an eventual Ioniq 7 N. We expect its driving range to be comparable to that of the Kia-branded counterpart.

There is news circulating that Genesis plans to introduce a deluxe model known as the GV90, although this is likely to come after the expected debut of the Ioniq 7 later this year. In summary, the Ioniq 7 is definitely a vehicle to watch out for.
