2022 Hyundai Seven concept design

Sometimes car manufacturers can be a bit conservative with designs. Cars need to appeal to a broad spectrum of people to be a success, however, Hyundai has learned the value of being bold with the Ioniq 5. Its larger sibling appears to be following suit.

This large SUV is the Hyundai Seven concept and it serves as a preview to what will eventually become the Ioniq 7 in a few years. It’s very space-age with chamfered edges and a distinctive lighting signature that run the concept’s width. It does host some retro square graphic lighting just like the Ioniq 5, but something unique is the large glass tailgate.

In concept form, the future Ioniq 7 takes the form of a large SUV that almost appears as a high-riding shooting brake – depending upon how you stretch the definition. It does feature a set of rear-hinged doors for added practicality, however, we’d expect the production car to be a more conventional five-door model.

2022 Hyundai Seven concept interior and infotainment

The interior is very far from production and resembles a lounge more than a car’s cabin. Despite the vehicle’s size, there are just two seats with the design being minimalist to emphasise space. A big focus has been put on autonomous driving and so you won’t find a steering wheel here. Instead, there’s a deployable joystick for those times when a driver’s input is needed.

Its seats comprise a pair of captain’s chairs that swivel for flexibility. Extensive use of soft fabrics and light woods give the cabin a very zen-like atmosphere. Many of the materials are recycled, and a new airflow system has been designed to reduce any contamination between passengers.

2022 Hyundai Seven concept practicality and boot space

The Hyundai Seven concept only features two regular doors and a pair of rear-hinged doors for added practicality. In addition to the pair of main chairs, there is a sofa-like construction at the rear, but overall the concept hasn’t been designed for practicality, more to hint at a future direction.

There is an abundance of space inside this concept car, something we expect to see in production form, but the Ioniq 7 will probably take the shape of a practical seven-seat SUV.

2022 Hyundai Seven concept batteries, motors and ranges

Being a concept car, and with the production vehicle still years away, there’s nothing particularly solid in terms of performance data.

Hyundai has announced that this concept utilises its new E-GMP platform with 800V charging capabilities. That means a 10-80% charge can be done in as little as 20 minutes. The predicted range is quoted at 300 miles.

2022 Hyundai Seven concept prices and on-sale date

This car is very much a concept at this stage, and so talking about pricing is totally speculative. All we have to go on is what Hyundai currently sells a large SUV for with some adjustment for this being an EV. Maybe £55,000?

When the Seven concept car eventually makes production as the Ioniq 7 sometime around 2024, it will be joining the Ioniq 5 and Ioniq 6 in showrooms.
