Seventh generation of the traditional model with retro design and electric drive?
The Hyundai Grandeur has been built since 1986, making it a traditional Korean model. The car was only seen once in Germany around the year 2000. The sixth generation is currently on the market; At just under five meters, it is a large model in the upper middle class.
According to the KoreanCarBlog, the seventh generation should start in 2023. If we have understood the Google translation from Korean correctly, Hyundai is planning a purely electric version in addition to combustion versions (with the same engines as the Kia K8, with which the Grandeur shares the platform).
This electric version should look different from the Grandeur Heritage Series that Hyundai showed two weeks ago. The study combined a retro look with an (unspecified) electric drive.

The notchback sedan had a similar angular look as that of the first generation of the Grandeur from the 80s. The chrome framing of the side windows was also taken from the original, as was the characteristic, slit-like side window on the C-pillar. To do this, the designers gave the car pixel-like headlights and taillights:
The Korean rendering specialist Hitekro has already developed an idea of the electric version of the Grandeur VII and shows it in the following video. He doesn’t seem to be convinced of the pixel-like lights; instead, he gave the car a continuous LED light bar, like the recently presented Seven Concept has. If you don’t want to watch the (Korean-language) film: The still image at the beginning of the video gives a first impression:
There is a grill under the light bar, similar to the one in the Hyundai Staria owns. On the left and right, it is flanked by two rectangular, vertical lighting elements that the rendering expert also took over from the Staria.
The current sixth generation Grandeur has been on the market since 2016. We are curious to see whether the KoreanCarBlog is right and whether the seventh generation, which will start in 2023, will come as an electric car with a retro look. And whether she looks the way Hitekro imagines it.
