The Hyundai Ioniq 7 concept car is intended to represent a vision of how advanced technology will be transferred to future electrified mobility. Above all, the focus should be on people, themselves, and the daily experiences they make.
The concept vehicle now presented is based on the well-known Hyundai E-GMP platform, specially designed for electric vehicles. The construction of a flat platform floor and a long wheelbase make it possible to show a wide range of vehicle classes.
The silhouette of the Ioniq 7 is aerodynamic and by no means typical of an SUV. With a low front edge on the bonnet, a streamlined roofline, and an extended wheelbase, the concept vehicle has deliberately turned away from the traditional SUV design. Overall, you can see very minimalist shapes, which give the Ioniq 7 a confident and robust character.
The Ioniq-typical Parametic Pixel lights are also present in the concept vehicle and make it immediately recognizable as an Ioniq model. Something that will probably not be adopted in a production vehicle is the so-called vision roof, which is provided with OLED panorama screens. Individual content can then be displayed here, according to the preferences of the passengers.
This would transform the interior into a space for relaxation and pleasure during a long journey.
Motors, battery, and range
Powerful engines with a range of over 480 kilometers are provided for the Ioniq 7. The charging options should also be quick and efficient so that you can offer a driving experience that is as tailored as possible to the customer. With a charging station with 350 kW charging power, the Ioniq 7 should be able to be charged from 10 to 80 percent within 20 minutes.
Hyundai Ioniq 7 interior
The interior is inviting and has a high-quality design, in the style of a lounge, which should also create a feel-good character about future autonomous driving. The concept is primarily designed to provide more space inside. The wheelbase of the Ioniq 7 should be 3.20 meters, which is possible because the wheels can be pushed outwards and thus the wheelbase can be extended as much as possible.
Because you have a flat floor, you can also introduce a new seating concept. The alternative to traditional rows of seats offers the opportunity to develop a very flowing interior concept. Carriage doors that do not require a column are large enough for passengers to get on and off comfortably. Inside, thanks to the lounge character, it becomes inviting and cozy.
Part of the future of autonomous mobility is the driver’s seat with a retractable joystick. If you don’t drive yourself, it simply disappears. Screens are integrated into a very flat cockpit, which can then provide relaxation – the rotating lounge chairs and a curved bench seat make sure of that. Depending on the driving mode (i.e. whether you are driving autonomously or yourself), the seating arrangement can be changed and adapted.
Safety and sustainability are two key points that Hyundai intends to pursue with the Ioniq 7. Various environmentally friendly materials are used for this. In addition, various hygiene systems such as the airflow system and UVC sterilization. The exterior paint is made of organic paint and only recycled and renewable materials are used inside.
Some examples are bio-resin, bamboo wood, and mineral plaster. The fact that copper is found in some places has to do with the fact that it has, among other things, an antibacterial function and thus contributes to cleanliness.
The airflow system, which is inspired by an airplane, also contributes to hygiene. The air is sucked in through built-in air inlets in the roof rails, flows downwards, and is sucked out again through an external ventilation system on the rear wheels. The system can be activated regardless of whether you are driving or standing. As soon as the vehicle is left, the UVC sterilization is activated. To do this, control sticks, shelves and loudspeakers are folded out and integrated UVC lamps clean everything from bacteria and viruses.
