Hyundai Ioniq 5 N : More Details

Based on the Electrified-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP), the Ioniq 5 N is co-developed along with Hyundai’s performance division. According to Hyundai, the Ioniq 5 N meets all the performance requirements and 3 pillars of N Performance – Corner Rascal, Racetrack Capability and Everyday Sportscar.

The Ioniq 5 N now gets a rear wiper and has done over 10,000 km on the Nürburgring. The full-throttle testing of the same duration has also been done. The car comes with larger 400mm disc brakes along the N eShift that mimics an 8-speed DCT gearbox.

The car also gets 10 speakers – 8 internal and 2 external. These offer N Active Sound + Setup. Here, there are three sound themes – Ignition, Evolution and Supersonic. The first mimics a 2.0-litre turbo engine of a normal N car, along with pops and bangs. The Evolution produces the sound of N 2025 Vision Gran Turismo Concept and RN22e while the Supersonic makes the Ioniq 5 N sound like a fighter jet.

It remains to be seen if the Korean carmaker will launch the car in India.

The Hyundai Ioniq 5 N was seen doing speeds of upto 250 km/h. Further, the battery remained at 42 degrees even after an all-out lap. Point to note is that unlike conventional tracks, the Nürburgring Nordschleife is 20.8 km long.

Owners of the car will get multiple driving modes. These include the Sprint and Endurance modes as part of the N Race system. While the Sprint delivers the full power, Endurance offers the maximum range.

Power output of the Ioniq 5 N has not been revealed officially. But we can estimate that it could be around 600 HP. Sister company Kia’s EV6 GT makes 576 HP for reference.
