In a few years the transformation of the brand hyundai It was impressive. In just two decades, the Korean company has grown from a low-cost brand to one of the most influential companies in the global automotive market. Its electricity is already a benchmark for autonomy and characteristics, but soon it will also be benchmark for performance and pleasure. The Hyundai Ioniq 5N has just been officially confirmed. A high-performance sports version that will push the crossover and its E-GMP platform to their limits.
Hyundai’s N division is also only a few years old, but has been very busy since its inception. Whether winning the WRC two years in a row with the i20 Coupé or creating exciting street cars that conquer more drivers every day. The next logical step is the electrification of the family. An electrification that crosses adapt the models of the Ioniq range to make them authentic electric beasts capable of standing up to the sportiest models in the category. The ioniq 5 It will be the first to pass through your hands.
Although everyone takes it for granted, official confirmation from Hyundai was still missing. On the big night of the N range, the Koreans never stop announcing. The revelation of Hyundai Ioniq 5N was one of them, but not the only one since he also We could see the presentation of two impressive prototypes such as the Hyundai RN22e Concept and the Hyundai N Vision 74. Two spectacular creations that show very clearly how seriously Hyundai N takes the sportiness of the electric range.
Although we haven’t seen any Ioniq N models yet, the first to step through this portal will be the Ioniq 5. Hyundai is betting on the crossover ahead of the sedan for an early market arrival. The official date is 2023, although it has not been specified what time of year we will see it, possibly throughout the first half of the course. It has been a long time since the sports unit has been seen in its test phase which it still maintains in force. As for the design, we cannot tell you much about it because those of Seoul did not want to throw out a single additional information.
Not directly at least, but we can know what the mechanical configuration will be if we take a look at another of the presentations of the night, the RN22e Concept, or the future Hyundai Ioniq 6 N. Using the same E-GMP platform, the structure receives modifications to cope with high performance. A dual-motor scheme will be able to generate 577 horsepower and 730 Nm of torque.. Features that will allow it to reach a top speed of 250 kilometers per hour. The battery used will be the largest in the family, with a capacity of 77.4 kWhwhich will considerably reduce its autonomy in favor of benefits.
The increase in power and performance will be accompanied by various driving programs that will allow the driver to customize the dynamics of the car in detaile, from the modification of the steering response to the behavior of the electronic torque distribution. Finally, the sound. Sportiness is inherently accompanied by noise, and the Koreans are working on a soundtrack that allows the driver to amplify the sensations behind the wheel. The project looks good, although many details remain to be known, such as the sale price.
