Hyundai's electric revolution is set to expand further, with recent trademark filings hinting at the arrival of a new member in its electric vehicle (EV) lineup – the Ioniq T7. Following the unveiling of the Ioniq T10, Hyundai's foray into the electric ute segment seems imminent, signaling the brand's commitment to electrifying the Australian automotive landscape.

Last week, Hyundai made waves with its trademark application for the Ioniq T10, sparking speculation about the introduction of an electric pickup/ute to complement its existing Ioniq lineup. Now, with the discovery of the Ioniq T7 trademark filing, Hyundai enthusiasts have even more reason to anticipate the arrival of a second electric ute.

Drawing from Hyundai's established naming conventions, which typically assign higher numbers to larger vehicles, it's speculated that the Ioniq T7 will be smaller than its T10 counterpart. Leveraging Hyundai's innovative Integrated Modular Architecture (IMA), slated to replace the E-GMP platform, the T7 is poised to offer a dynamic and sustainable driving experience tailored to modern lifestyles.

Hyundai's IMA platform is engineered to accommodate a diverse range of vehicles, including utes and pickups, underscoring the brand's forward-thinking approach to electric mobility. With plans to introduce four models within the next six years, Hyundai is positioning itself at the forefront of the EV revolution, catering to the evolving needs of consumers worldwide.

While details about Hyundai's electric ute project remain scarce, the emergence of the Ioniq T7 trademark filing hints at an exciting future for the brand. As Hyundai explores new horizons in electrification, the prospect of an electric ute offers a compelling blend of versatility, performance, and sustainability.

Meanwhile, Hyundai's sister brand, Kia, is also venturing into the electric pickup segment, albeit with a focus on the North American market. While the availability of Kia's electric pickup in right-hand drive markets remains uncertain, Hyundai's potential entry into the electric ute segment presents an exciting opportunity for Australian drivers.

Although the petrol-powered Hyundai Santa Cruz, based on the Tucson SUV, is currently unavailable in Australia due to its left-hand drive production, the prospect of an electric alternative underscores Hyundai's commitment to innovation and sustainability.

As Hyundai continues to expand its electric vehicle portfolio, the anticipation surrounding the Ioniq T7 signals a new era of mobility, where electrification meets versatility on the roads of Australia. Stay tuned for updates as Hyundai paves the way for a greener, more sustainable automotive future.
