Hyundai presents the Seven Concept, a study of an electric SUV with a sofa – archyde

The study is based on the E-GMP (Electric-Global Modular Platform), which impresses with its minimalist design and should offer an extremely spacious interior.

Behind the air cabin is mainly a wheelbase that reaches 3.2 meters. A level floor, a typical element for electric cars, also helps. It was the flat floor that inspired the designers to create an interior with an unusual seating arrangement.

In connection with the design, Hyundai speaks of an aerodynamically clean silhouette, minimalist shapes, a broad stance and a dominant appearance. The wheels with integrated active air flaps that extend and retract depending on the need for brake cooling or low aerodynamic drag are interesting. And headlights with parametric pixels are sure to grab attention.

The interiors were designed with the vision of autonomous mobility in mind. The driver’s seat has a retractable hand lever that is hidden when not in use. Inside you will also find a slim instrument panel with integrated displays.

And because studies that look to an autonomous future may not have the usual controls, Hyundai could have arranged the cabin into a lounge. There are swivel chairs that are complemented by a furniture-like sofa. The equipment then includes, for example, a small refrigerator and special “compartments” that clean and polish the passengers’ shoes.

The glass roof has a panorama OLED display that not only shows different content depending on the hobby of the passengers, but also changes the overall atmosphere in the interior.

Hyundai has tried to use as many materials as possible in the cabin that are recycled or come from renewable sources, such as bamboo wood, bio-resin or copper. The body is painted with organic varnish.

The pandemic situation seems to be behind the new concept of the ventilation system, which is supposed to separate the air flowing between the front and rear passengers and thus prevent mutual contamination of the passengers. The equipment also includes a germicidal UVC sterilization lamp.

Technically, Hyundai speaks of a predicted range of more than 483 kilometers and fast charging on a 350 kW charger: charging from 10 to 80 percent of the battery capacity should take 20 minutes. However, we are not aware of any other parameters of the electric drive system.

Of course, Hyundai Seven is first and foremost a design concept that represents a specific view of the brand’s electric future. In series form, the study is to become an Ioniq 7 electric car.
