Bobaedream posted several photos of a mysterious test mule based on the Hyundai Palisade. Compared to the regular Palisade, the mule has increased front overhang and rear wheelbase. It is unclear which model may be hiding under the familiar body, but it is possible that we have a new Genesis GV90 or IONIQ 7.
The mystery car was caught on the street, and while we don’t know what it could be, it’s clear that Hyundai or Genesis are trying to divert attention away from their new product. While at first glance you might think this is the test mule of the next Genesis SUV, the lack of a fuel filler flap might make you think it’s an EV, but surprisingly, there is no charging port either.
These are the very first spy shots of a large SUV, due sometime in 2023. The fact that the current Genesis GV70 and GV80 SUVs were preceded by two test mules based on Hyundai SUVs, in particular, Tucson and Santa Fe, respectively, prompted journalists to think that we have Genesis before us.
Alternatively, the Korean brand is testing the new Hyundai IONIQ 7 for the first time. The lack of a fuel tank and a small front overhang, combined with a very large wheelbase, may indicate a large electric SUV.
