It has nothing to do with the Hyundai Ioniq range and W Motors you may recall is the author of the Lykan Hypersport which had a star stunt appearance in Fast and Furious 7.
There’s only one similar trait shared with Hyundai’s eco-friendly family of cars – the joint project between the UAE marque based in Beirut, Lebanon and China-based ICONIQ Motors – it’s an electric concept. W Motors uses this as a design study that has been developed for a third party – while still focusing on things such as the Fenyr SuperSport hypercar, which should be making its US debut quite soon. Back to the project, we have here a pure electric MPV with the usual boxy shape that can bring a very spacious interior – the ICONIQ Seven comes with a seemingly flat roofline, and we imagine it can hold up to seven persons inside. Since it’s a prototype, it aims to shake up the pretty boring segment by using suicide doors and an interesting design with a bold front end and full-width LED taillights.
No conventional mirrors can be seen – the idea can even be used legally in Japan starting this fall – and the executives over at ICONIQ Motors seem pretty much intent on delivering a production version of the concept to hook up with taxi businesses and on-demand transportation services. It is labeled as an affordable ‘ultimate MPV’ and engineering comes courtesy of Magna Steyr – though other than the pure electric setup there are no other technical details available yet.
