Under this camouflage hides the Hyundai Ioniq 5 N, Hyundai’s electric sports car

Hyundai is going to take the sports aspect of its new generation electric cars very seriously. The hyundai n will continue to exist in the IONIQ range and the first to arrive will be the Hyundai Ioniq 5Nof which we have seen new images in a practically production version.

Any self-respecting performance-focused car has to go through the Nürburgring during its testing phase. And that is where Hyundai has been seen testing its latest creature, the Ioniq 5 N, with a model that, except for the camouflage that hides the details of its design, is practically the production version that will roll on the roads. .

The previous sightings were mules of the N version, but the unit that concerns us today has -as confirmed first hand by our spy photographers- the final bodywork under that camouflage. Among the changes we can differentiate a front bumper with a splitter more aggressive, more sporty. Also new are the blade-shaped parts on the front air intake, which we’ve seen without them until now.

The hood has very pronounced ribs, something that we had not seen on previous occasions, which will surely provide a more sporty character. The wings, wider in this sporty version due to the greater track width, are now better integrated with the rest of the bodywork. The rims are also different, newly designed compared to what we had seen so far. Behind them hides a more powerful brake system than in the Ioniq 5 that is currently marketed, a necessary improvement to keep up with higher performance.

Not surprisingly, the Ioniq 5 N will have no less than 585 hp of power and 730 Nm of torque engine -this is the engine used by the Kia EV6 GT, the most powerful version of its cousin-. Figures that, with the help of the all-wheel drive, will allow you to do 0 to 100 km/h in about 3.5 seconds. Quite impressive numbers, no doubt. Hyundai has also worked on the suspension to make the car faster in corners. Although the details of these modifications are still unknown, at first glance it can be seen that the body is closer to the ground.

At the back we can also see a generously sized spoiler, greater than that of the mules. Curiously, the images we have seen do not show the existence of a diffuser at the rear, although it will probably opt for a kind of simulated diffuser. Although we don’t have interior pictures this time around, it will adopt elements of the Hyundai N division like sportier seats and steering wheel and N logos here and there. You could even equip some bucket seats.

The Hyundai Ioniq 5N will be officially presented in 2023, although the South Korean firm has not specified more exactly when we will be able to see it definitively. Given the advanced state of development of the model, it is likely that we will see it in the first half of the year. It will mount the 77.4 kWh battery, which should be enough to homologate around 420 kilometers of WLTP autonomy, although in this version the autonomy takes second place on the scale of priorities.

It will not be the only electric model with the Hyundai N seal. The next in question should be the Ioniq 6 N, which we have already been able to see in a certain way with the Hyundai RN22e Concept. And we still hope that Hyundai will dare to make the Hyundai N Vision 74 a reality, a sports car with a fuel cell and a spectacular design.
