Huyndai's next electric vehicle will be a large SUV called the Ioniq 7. the seven-seater will compete with the Tesla Model X and Mercedes EQB.

Hyundai has already set an arrival date for the Ioniq 7 in 2024, so the model is expected to arrive either late this year or early 2023.

The Ioniq 7 is based on the scalable Hyundai-Kia E-GMP platform for electric vehicles, while keeping the width of the modular architecture and the length of the wheelbase relatively free. With fewer restrictions on these parameters, the size of the battery that a large SUV must accommodate will become an important determining factor.

As a result, the car will hold a larger battery than the Ioniq 5 and 6, helping to offset the car's extra weight compared to its midsize sibling. This can provide up to 100 kWh of power, and advances in battery chemistry mean Hyundai will move to its fourth-generation technology by 2023, increasing energy density by 10 to 20 percent from current settings and giving the SUV a range of options. Mileage on one charge was about 650 km.

The 800-volt electronic architecture of the E-GMP platform will equip the Ioniq 7 with 350kW fast charging capability, which means a range increase of up to 100 km in just five minutes. However, given the positioning of Ioniq 7 as a flagship, it may also have wireless charging.
