Hyundai is releasing a new EV version of its iconic Grandeur continuing its wide commitment towards electric vehicles.
The company is planning on launching the Grandeur EV in 2023 alongside the non-electric 7th generation Grandeur.
No one outside the company is sure how the new Grandeur EV will look. Still, Hyundai will likely take inspiration from its Grandeur Heritage EV concept car, a re-imagined version of a 1980’s luxury sedan.
Hyundai won’t release the new car until sometime in 2023, but people are already clamoring to find out as much as possible about it.
So, we’ve done the research to discover as much as possible about the Hyundai Grandeur EV, and here’s everything we found out.

Hyundai Grandeur EV Release Date
Hyundai Grandeur EV Release Date
Countdown to August 1, 2023 at 10:00 AM (UTC)
Unfortunately, Hyundai hasn’t given a release date yet.
But, our research indicates that Hyundai will release the Grandeur EV in the third quarter of 2023 at the same time as the 7th generation non-electric Grandeur.
Hyundai Grandeur EV Price
A price has not yet been set for the Hyundai EV, but it is expected to cost approximately $50,000.
So, the price is really in the mid-range for an electric vehicle, which is often costlier upfront than non-electric counterparts.
The cost is lower than luxury EVs like the Tesla Model Y or the Polestar 3. However, someone on a tighter budget could find a cheaper EV like the 2022 Nissan Leaf.
Hyundai Grandeur EV Specs
Hyundai has not yet officially announced the specifications for the Hyundai Grandeur EV. We don’t even know whether or not the new EV will share a platform with the Kia K8 and the new generation Hyundai Grandeur to be released, which will have the Hyundai-Kia N-3 platform.
But we believe Hyundai may release the car with an electric motor for each axle which could offer improved weight distribution and acceleration.
The Grandeur EV’s range may extend from 249 to 280 miles. It could also come standard with an 87.2 kWh battery pack with a multi-charging system allowing for high-speed charging, which is excellent for anyone who doesn’t have much time to wait for an EV to charge.
Hyundai Grandeur EV Design
The Grandeur EV will contain several interesting features, some inspired by the Grand Heritage EV concept car and others available in Hyundai’s other premium cars, such as the Ioniq 5 and Palisade.
The Grandeur EV may take some design elements from the first-generation Grandeur. If it does, the car may include free-standing quarter glass panels on the rear of the vehicle.
This seems even more likely as these glass panels were included in Hyundai’s Grandeur Heritage concept car. Hyundai could also use elements from the taillight included in the earlier Grandeur in the Grandeur EV, but solely LEDs would be used in them.
The Grandeur EV will have a luxurious interior, including three large screens. Two of these screens would be located in a large black panel4 facing the driver.
One of these screens would contain information for the driver, such as ADAS functions, battery status, and range, along with some other information. The other screen will be a touchscreen infotainment system offering navigation and audio capabilities.
The third touchscreen will be below the other two in the center console area. It will contain the controls for seat settings and the climate.
This is quite a change from the traditional physical controls found on most car consoles and should certainly offer a more streamlined appearance.
Hyundai is also expected to offer impressively luxurious backseats in the new EV. The rear seats will have leg rests, which passengers can control electronically.
If Hyundai follows its lead with the Ioniq 5, these seats may even be reclinable, and the middle seat may have foldable work tables.
Hyundai will also include a magic roof on the new Grandeur, a luxurious addition. The roof will be glass utilizing electrochromic shading, which provides drivers far more control over the amount of light entering the car over a traditional roller blind.
The car will also offer comprehensive safety systems, such as Lane Keeping Assist, Blind Spot Collision Avoidance Assist, Forward Collision Avoidance Assist, and a surround-view camera. This impressive suite of advanced safety features lives up to Hyundai’s strong reputation for safety.
