Hyundai’s future debuts at AutoMobility 2021 in Los Angeles with the innovative Seven, an electric concept SUV capable of anticipating the technologies and style of the new arrivals in the coming years. Scheduled from 19 to 28 November, the Los Angeles Motor Show will also showcase the Ioniq 5 and Xcient Fuel Cell models for American customers. After the concept 45 in 2019 and Prophecy in 2020, the Seven prototype inaugurates a new chapter of the brand Ioniq, the Hyundai family dedicated to battery electric vehicles (bev).
Hyundai Seven, electric suv
New style and cutting-edge technology are the strengths of Hyundai Seven, a concept that also wants to be a clear representation of Hyundai’s commitment to carbon neutrality by 2045. Built on the E-Gmp (Electric-Global Modular Platform) platform by Hyundai, a modular architecture dedicated to battery electric vehicles thanks to the long wheelbase of the E-GMP and the flat floor of the platform make possible an entirely new class of vehicles.
In terms of charging and autonomy, in a real situation and with a 350 kW charger, the concept is able to charge from 10% to 80% in about 20 minutes. Overall, it reaches an autonomy target of over 480 km. Characterized by interiors with a domestic character, the new concept is the perfect example of the philosophy of the Ioniq range, with its innovation in terms of space and hygiene-conscious features that transform the vehicle into an innovative living space on wheels.
Hyundai Seven, stile
The concept features an aerodynamic style that differs from the typical shapes of SUVs. Among the main features are the low front edge of the hood, the continuous and aerodynamic line of the roof, and the elongated wheelbase. Among the innovations are the wheels equipped with integrated Active Air Flaps, which open or retract according to the need for cooling the brakes or reducing aerodynamic drag. Another feature is the Parametric Pixel lights, which provide a Welcome Light Sequence at startup. Parametric Pixels provide a design leitmotif, combining digital and analog styles.
Interni Hyundai Seven
The real breaking point comes from the interiors, with a real innovation of the space able to offer greater freedom like never seen before. The wheelbase of the Seven reaches 3.2 meters, thanks to the design cue of pushing the wheels outwards to extend the wheelbase as much as possible. The flat floor allowed for an unprecedented arrangement of the rows of seats, creating a more fluid interior layout. The “Pillarless Coach Doors” (the large doors on the side) offer an entrance in style, revealing a welcoming interior with a whole new dimension of space.
