Emergence of electric heating hatch

The 2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5 electric crossover has only reached dealerships yet Hyundai is already close to launching a hot version.

Our recent spy shots show a prototype of what could be an Ioniq 5 tuned by Hyundai N Performance.

Compared to the regular model, this possible Ioniq 5 N has lower suspension, wider front and rear tracks, lower-profile tires and a newer wheel design. Our spy photographer mentions that the brakes have also been upgraded from production models with larger calipers and rotors. The tester is seen climbing into a tighter suspension, which indicates new shocks and springs.

It’s hard to judge with thick camouflage gear, but it seems that the Ioniq 5 N plays a modified front fascia with a new design for air opening. According to our photographer, the interior was fitted with play seats at the front.

The Ioniq 5 N should ride on the same skateboard-style E-GMP dedicated EV platform as the regular Ioniq 5. The regular model is available with rear or all-wheel drive thanks to a single rear motor or a combination of front and rear motors. , And the latter is the best bet for the Ioniq 5 N, combined with the Ioniq 5’s largest battery, in this case a 77.4-kilowatt-hour unit.

The Kia EV6 provides some clues as to how much power the tap has. The EV6’s range-topping GT grade is 576 hp and 546 lb-ft of torque, or 0-60 mph acceleration in 3.5 seconds. Top with regular Ioniq 5 320 hp and 446 lb-ft.

Look for the Ioniq 5 N to debut as a 2023 model soon
