- Hyundai has announced pricing and specification for the IONIQ 5 N.
The Hyundai IONIQ 5 N features several technical enhancements over the standard IONIQ 5, with a powertrain enhanced for performance in both power output, battery cooling and braking. IONIQ 5 N’s electric motors spin up to 21,000 RPM providing up to 609PS in normal conditions, or 650 PS when N Grin Boost (NGB) is engaged, maximising acceleration for up to 10 seconds. Furthering its track capabilities, IONIQ 5 N also features N Launch Control, with three different traction levels for the fastest possible start.
As well as extensive mechanical and software developments designed for performance driving, IONIQ 5 N’s exterior adds performance related design elements. The N model further distinguishes itself from the standard IONIQ 5 with a change of proportions. It is 20 mm lower overall, 50 mm wider at the bottom to accommodate wider tyres and 80 mm longer due to the more prominent diffuser. This impression is further reinforced by the forged 21-inch aluminium wheels that are wrapped in high-grip 275/35R21 Pirelli P-Zero tyres for improved ride and handling and better grip in track performance.
The battery size has been increased slightly from 77kWh to 84kWh but driving range has yet to be confirmed. As the power output has doubled from the standard IONIQ 5, it is expected for this to drop from 315 miles to closer to 200 miles.
Pricing for the Hyundai IONIQ 5 N stats from £65,000 and is available to order now.
