2023 Hyundai Grandeur EV – According to a report by the Korean Car Blog, the introduction of the seventh generation Hyundai Grandeur is set to be accompanied by an interesting surprise when it launches in 2023 because Hyundai is planning an electric model with a retro style that is influenced by the Grandeur Heritage concept.
2023 Hyundai Grandeur EV Redesign
It is interesting to observe the specs for the Hyundai Grandeur electric vehicle, particularly in the event that it shares platforms that are shared with both the newly launched Grandeur (codenamed the GN7) and Kia K8, Kia K8, which ride on the Hyundai-Kia N3 platform. Another option for Hyundai could be to choose its E-GMP electrical-only platform that should not have any problem accommodating the 5-meter-long length of the sedan as a big SUV (Kia EV9) is being planned for it already. But, E-GMP is unlikely for the upcoming generation. The Hyundai Grandeur Electric Vehicle is expected to be impressive even if the model proves to be an update of the current generation Grandeur. In this scenario, it’s possible that it is possible that the Grandeur EV may be launched as an AWD model that has two motors that are one per axle which is similar to those of the Genesis model. It is a derivative of the Genesis EVs. They can produce approximately 270 kW of combined power, and 700 Nm of torque. An 87.2 kWh lithium-ion battery that has the multi-charging capability that allows ultra-fast charging may be standard. The range of the South Korea certification method could be between 400 and 450 kilometers (249-280 miles).
The Korean Car Blog report cites sources from the industry that claim that Hyundai is looking to launch its next flagship vehicle (now since it’s established Genesis as a luxury brand and that the Grandeur will be able to return to its position as the flagship) to look for design elements from the previous generation Grandeur. The report suggests an old-fashioned design style as evidenced by spy photos which have since been posted on Korean automotive forums. For instance, the first generation Grandeur had the rear quarter glass panels freestanding that were featured as part of the Grandeur Heritage concept and could be added to the brand new Hyundai Grandeur. In addition, the taillight elements on Grandeur EV should incorporate the design of the predecessor, but they will feature only LEDs.
At the rear, Hyundai will opt for an innovative design that draws inspiration from Staria. The sketch is not official but suggests the possibility of a wide-width lighting bar (‘Welcome Light’), an enormous grille that has hexagonal shapes, and the rectangular daytime running lamps that surround the headlamps. The sides of the car, opposite the sporty and lively style of the sixth-gen Grandeur and the 2022 version will sport an older look. Pictures from spy shots (view the images on Naver) indicate that the car will be designed to look like a traditional sedan with a low-pitched roofline and a straight beltline vertical rear quarter glass and edgy glass. The new model will have more headroom in the rear thanks to the roof’s higher and flatter side. These new handles give a luxurious car experience, however, they also enhance aerodynamic efficiency. This could lead to an increase in driving distance which is particularly important for the electric version. To maximize the use of the battery available, Hyundai could offer aero-optimized wheel designs specifically designed for electric vehicles.
Based on the spy images the rear-end will sport an uncluttered design and give an elegant look. The render from Gotcha Cars previews a sportier rear end for the next generation Grandeur. It has a noticeable reduction in the tail light that is full width and a ducktail spoiler. an inscription in block letters under the tail light and a slim fog light as well as reverse lighting in the lower part of the bumper. Its exhaust pipe is concealed making the design suitable for the all-electric version that is emission-free. According to reports, it is likely that the GN7 Grandeur will exceed the 5-meter mark in terms of length. This implies greater interior space as the car is a favorite for market segments that are driven by chauffeurs in China, the Middle East, and China, as well as its own market in South Korea. Hyundai has sold more than 2 million units under its model since its debut in 1986. In 2020 it was the top-selling car across South Korea for the fourth consecutive year. The car is praised for its strengths.
The most recent spy image of the new Hyundai Grandeur’s interior was revealed via KCB (via AutoSpy) on April 26th, 2022, giving away numerous information about the new car. Although the steering wheel with three spokes reminds us of that of the original 1986 Hyundai Grandeur (pictured below) It does feature the ability to control with a touch-capacitive device and backlighting that makes it more modern. The best feature, however, must be the triple-screen layout that is similar to what we’re familiar with for Audis or Land Rovers.
It is the Hyundai Grandeur Hybrid has been hailed as South Korea’s top-selling hybrid car and is equipped with 2.4-liter gasoline and 38-kW (51 PS) electric motor. The company’s investor documents from March 2021 stated that a future Grandeur Hybrid is in the pipeline for the next year (2022). However Seoul-based ETnews published on April 28th, 2022, that Hyundai will release a new model year update to the current Grandeur located in South Korea. The site declares that Hyundai will not be rushing to launch the next-generation Grandeur which could be delayed because of a shortage of semiconductors across the globe as well as the bottlenecks in supply chains.

This MY2021 version will remain on the market until the middle of May, and after that production will be focused on its MY2022 car till the next generation arrives. It’s unclear what improvements the MY2022 car will offer to the model that was previously in production However, the debut won’t be significant since it’s just the last step in the process. Hyundai Grandeur GN7 Hyundai Grandeur GN7 might get the development of a more powerful version from the Sonata hybrid’s 2.0-liter setup , or go for the turbocharged option. According to the Korean Car Blog, Hyundai might also consider using Kia’s 1.6-liter turbo hybrid engine, which combines the gas 180PS engine with a 44-kW (59 PS) electric motor.
