The Hyundai company is working on a “hot” version of the all-electric car Ioniq 5, which will receive the “N” brand designation. This is reported by Motor1, which also publishes spy photos and renders of the upcoming Hyundai Ioniq 5 N.
So, what will the Hyundai Ioniq 5 N electric car look like? It is expected to receive a modified front bumper, spoiler pads on the front corners, an enlarged grille for cooling various systems. A diffuser and a spoiler on the trunk lid should also appear behind. And the slanting running lights will help to stand out visually – of course, they’re of “pixel design”.
And what about the equipment? The Hyundai Ioniq 5 N electric car, like the regular versions of the Hyundai Ioniq 5, will be built on the E-GMP platform: that is, you can expect a 77.4 kWh battery and all-wheel drive. By the way, among the “Koreans” a similar electric car already exists. This is the KIA EV6 GT with a capacity of about 580 “horses”. But the new Hyundai Ioniq 5 N should further raise this level: to approximately 600 “horses”. If this happens, then the Hyundai Ioniq 5 N electric car will be the most powerful among competitors – and the most dynamic: a hundred km/h in 3.3 seconds.
In addition, the sports version of the Hyundai Ioniq 5 N will receive enlarged wheels of original design and special brakes – in one of the photos you can see 2-component brake discs. Usually, this design involves a central metal part and a ceramic outer part of the disc. Finally, the electric car should receive an imitation of the sound of the exhaust system and a “drift” mode, and the appearance of the “N” button in the cabin is expected: the transfer of all systems to the most productive modes.
When will this miracle electric car appear? The official presentation of the Hyundai Ioniq 5 N is expected to take place in early 2023. And in the spring and summer it will be available for purchase from official dealers of the company in Europe and the USA.
