Ioniq 5 N Hyundai performance

Two electric motors with a total output of 609 horsepower and a top speed of 21,000 rpm power the Ioniq 5 N, as was already mentioned. However, they generate 650 horsepower when used in Hyundai’s boost mode, N Grin Boost, which enables the Ioniq 5 N to hit a claimed 0-100kph time of 3.4 seconds and a top speed of 260kph.

Full power is accessible for 10 seconds up to the maximum acceleration in the N Grin Boost mode. Regarding the torque rating of the Ioniq 5 N, Hyundai has been mum. The battery can be charged from 10 to 80 percent in 18 minutes, according to Hyundai, using a 350kW DC quick charger.

The company claims that the four-piston, 400mm front disc, and the one-piston, 360mm rear disc are made of new lightweight material and have optimized airflow for increased cooling. The Ioniq 5 N offers up to 0.6G of decelerative force with N Brake Regen, and it is active for up to 0.2G of braking.

42 more welding locations and 2.1 meters of additional adhesives have been added by Hyundai to strengthen the chassis. For improved rigidity in corners, the battery and motor mounts have also been strengthened. Additionally, the Ioniq 5 N has front and rear integrated drive axles that are inspired by the World Rally Championship (WRC).

Specs of the Hyundai Ioniq 5 N

Hyundai thinks its two new technologies, N e-shift and N Active Sound Plus, will enhance the driving experience. According to reports, the former is an exact reproduction of the eight-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox used in N’s ICE vehicles. Combined with the N-shift, the latter reproduces the exhaust note of both ICEs and EVs.

The Ignition, Evolution, and Supersonic themes are played on a 10-speaker system by the N Active Sound +. Eight speakers are located inside, while two more are located outside. The Supersonic theme is modeled on a twin-engine fighter jet, while the Evolution and Ignition themes imitate the noises of EVs and turbo-petrol engines, respectively. According to Hyundai, the N Active Sound + gives the driver a reference point for understanding how the power is being used.

The N pedal, which was created to address an EV’s weight difficulties, is also included with the Ioniq 5. According to rumors, the N pedal prioritizes quick cornering speeds over energy efficiency. This is accomplished by using decelerative force and transferring weight to enable a sharper corner entry.

N Torque Distribution and N Drift Optimiser are two more driving aids in the Ioniq 5. While the latter manages torque distribution between the front and back wheels utilizing an electronic limited-slip differential, the former simulates the clutch kick motion of an ICE-powered rear-wheel drive car to induce a drift.

The vehicle-to-load feature, which enables external devices to be powered by the EV’s battery, is also included in the N version of the Ioniq 5, just like it is in the ordinary Ioniq 5.

Design and measurements of the Hyundai Ioniq 5 N

The Ioniq 5 N now features a few body parts from Hyundai that improve performance. It has 21-inch wheels made of aluminum alloy and is 80mm longer and 50mm wider than the basic model. Also 20mm lower than the Ioniq 5 N.

Air flaps and curtains have been added to the front bumper’s makeover to help better channel air and enhance cooling. An orange accent on the lower portion of the bumper extends to the lower portion of the new rear bumper. The rear additionally receives an N-specific spoiler that contains the third brake light in addition to a wider air diffuser.

Interior of a Hyundai Ioniq 5 N

The Ioniq 5 N differs significantly from the Ioniq 5 in several ways on the inside. It comes with a steering wheel designed specifically for N, two N buttons that may be configured to select the drive modes, and a second button designated solely for driving modes. The previously mentioned N Grin Boost has its button on the steering wheel.

The central console has also been overhauled by Hyundai to be more track-friendly with knee pads, shin supports, and a new center armrest. Hyundai tightened the seat bolsters on the bucket seats, which are 20mm lower than those on the basic Ioniq 5 N, to give support during cornering.  

India’s Hyundai Ioniq 5

The Ioniq 5 is presently available in India for Rs 44.95 lakh (ex-showroom, India), and it comes with a 72.6kWh battery pack with a 631km-long ARAI-certified range. 217 horsepower and 350 Nm of torque are produced by its rear-mounted electric motor.
