Rampant demand for the new Ioniq 5 has forced Hyundai to accelerate the pace of work on the new crossover. Now Ioniq 7 may appear in 2023 instead of 2024.
The Korean company Hyundai has presented a plan to develop the electrification of its lineup. Next year, the Ioniq 6 sedan should enter the market. The debut of the large Ioniq 7 SUV was scheduled for 2024, but due to the success of the Ioniq 5, it is going to be released faster.
At the same time, the production of an SUV can be set up in the USA – if this happens, new SK Innovation battery packs will be installed on it. The Hyundai Ioniq 7 will be based on the same E-GMP platform that is used in the more compact Ioniq 5 and Ioniq 6. This will charge the crossover to 80% in just 18 minutes, which is a very important parameter for most electric car users.
A 350 kW charging station will be used for this. The SUV gets an increased distance between the axles, which allows you to count on a large range – up to 630 km.
Also in the new Ioniq 7 there will be modern systems – in particular, you can count on the autopilot of the third level, although this has not yet been officially confirmed.
The arsenal will also include cameras instead of rear-view mirrors, improved built-in navigation and even solar panels on the roof.
Meanwhile, Hyundai has presented a hybrid modification of the large K8 sedan. The car will be able to please the owners with very low fuel consumption, while the power level will be decent.
