Hyundai's Ioniq T10 & T7: First EV Trucks

Hyundai has firmly established itself in the electric vehicle (EV) arena with successful models like the Ioniq 5, Ioniq 6, and the Kona. However, the Korean automaker is expanding its horizons beyond cars and SUVs, setting its sights on the electric truck market to compete with Ford's F-150 Lightning.

Rumors suggest that Hyundai's entry into this segment will be marked by the Ioniq T10, speculated to be the name of its inaugural truck. Positioned as a direct rival to the F-150 Lightning in terms of size, the Ioniq T10 is expected to make a significant impact. Additionally, Hyundai is reportedly planning a smaller model, the Ioniq T7, which could potentially replace the Santa Cruz in the US market. An artist's rendition of the Ioniq T10, based on Hyundai's current design language, offers a glimpse into its possible appearance.

The source of this information stems from Australia, where Hyundai has recently filed trademark applications for both the Ioniq T10 and T7. While these filings categorize the trademarks under "trucks; lorries," it's worth noting that much of this speculation remains unconfirmed. Nevertheless, considering the logical assumption that "T" could represent "Truck," the names seem fitting. However, Hyundai may ultimately choose to apply these monikers to other vehicle types.

If these plans materialize, consumers shouldn't expect Hyundai's EV trucks to hit the roads before 2025 or 2026. Meanwhile, for those interested in Korean EV trucks, Kia may offer an alternative sooner with its anticipated truck, believed to be named Tasman. Expected to compete against the likes of the Ford Ranger and Toyota Hilux, the Tasman will reportedly utilize a distinct platform from Hyundai's Ioniq T10 and is projected to launch as early as next year.
