The SEVEN Concept from Hyundai Motor Company is making its debut at the 2021 Los Angeles Auto Show. With its innovative design and technologies, the concept previews the brand’s future sport utility electric vehicle (SUEV) for the IONIQ brand.
The SEVEN Concept is one of the exhibits the manufacturer showcases at the La Auto Show this year. The rest are the XCIENT Heavy Duty Fuel Cell Truck and Ioniq 5. The concept is an example of innovative living space on wheels. Its cabin is a kind of a premium lounge.
The SEVEN Concept rides on Hyundai’s dedicated Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP). It targets a range of over 300 miles, and can be charged 10-80% in 20 min with a 350-kW charger.
Unlike a traditional SUV, the SEVEN Concept has an aerodynamically pure silhouette with an elongated 3.2-meter wheelbase that integrates Active Air Flaps, and a streamlined roofline. Its hood’s leading-edge is low, while the stance looks powerful. The distinctive feature of the exterior is the signature Parametric Pixel lighting.
The flat floor in the cabin allows creating a fluid interior layout with a fully new dimension of space. The interior of the SEVEN Concept features pillarless coach doors, an ultra-slim cockpit, integrated screens, customizable seating: swiveling lounge chairs, a curved bench seat, a driver’s seat with a retractable control stick.
The SEVEN offers many in-car appliances for personalization, including a Universal Island console, a multi-functional Smart Hub graphic user interface, and even a built-in mini-fridge. The concept’s roof features a panoramic screen, which displays different content and changes the interior atmosphere.
In addition, the vehicle uses hygienically-recycled and renewable materials inside, and offers such hygienic functions as UVC Sterilization (activates once passengers get out of the vehicle) or Hygiene Airflow System. The latter is inspired by airflow management of passenger aircrafts.
