Iconiq Motors Joins Tesla And Volkswagen with the Seven Electric Minivan

Nope, it’s not a Hyundai

Until Tesla finds the time to reveal the first details on its upcoming all-electric contraptions (you know, the ones mentioned by Musk's Master Plan), Iconiq Motors and W Motors – famous for the Lykan HyperSport – will unveil the Iconiq Seven minivan concept at Pebble Beach.

Don't expect a lot of technical details at this point – in fact, there's no word on the Seven's drivetrain whatsoever, but its makers insist that an MPV can be both attractive and desirable while setting a milestone in the field of electric mobility.

However, the prototype we're looking at seems capable of accommodating seven passengers, hence its name, but also features video cameras instead of side mirrors and debate-prone styling cues.

The engineering behind the Iconiq Seven was the responsibility of Magna Steyr and W Motors CEO Ralph Debbas says the vehicle was designed to create and fulfill a niche that's missing in China while keeping the Seven within an affordable price range.

From where we're standing, the Iconiq Seven looks built for taxi and shuttle chores, which means it could suit other large cities around the world, not only China's traffic-choked urban areas.
