It’s no secret that the Hyundai IONIQ 5 N is on its way and is about to be officially unveiled. But before it arrives, we have a recreation of its design that gives us a preview of what this sports version is expected to look like and a preview of its features. It will be the first electric model in the Korean brand’s ‘N’ range of sports cars. And this is all we know, for now, about the Hyundai IONIQ 5 N.
What we know about this Hyundai IONIQ 5 N is that, compared to the i20 N, i30 N, and Kona N, it will not have such a sporty and differentiated design. The differences will be given by details such as the front bumper, which will maintain its active aerodynamic system. This technology, as we already know, is used to cool the electrical system and optimize the aerodynamic coefficient in other circumstances. In more precise data, it is capable of increasing autonomy by approximately 7.3 kilometers.
What will change in the Hyundai IONIQ 5 N, the sports version of the electric
This sports version is expected to change the bumper design with larger air intakes. They will not only help improve cooling but also give it a more aggressive design than the rest of the versions. On the other hand, it is also expected to have darkened headlights and a red lower lip on the bumper. On the side, we will also have this red accent, and on the rear bumper, it is expected to have a lower body height, as well as a specific wheel design, much more sporty.
These wheels appear in the design recreation of the Hyundai IONIQ 5 N in black, with double spokes, the N logo, and better tires. Spy photos have been seen rolling the model with Pirelli P Zero tires. And other details such as the door trims or the wheel arches are expected to change, as they appear in this render. Inside, on the other hand, the specific buttons of the N versions should be present, to modify the behavior of the car while driving, new graphics for the multimedia system, and exclusive upholstery for this version.
But beyond the merely aesthetic, so far it has been known that the keys will focus on a sportier chassis. To achieve a ‘very different chassis’, which is what media such as Auto Express have assured, with exclusive information, it is most likely that work has been done on the suspension or stability control, among others.
And the most logical thing, although this is not confirmed, is that it has the same configuration of two electric motors as the KIA EV6 GT, which achieves a power of 576 CV and with four-wheel drive. This version also offers 740 Nm. However, Auto Express has already pointed out that in the development of the Hyundai IONIQ 5 N, curiously, the least priority has been given to the powertrain. It will also have 77.4 kWh capacity batteries. As we mentioned, the most relevant changes will be at the chassis level.
