Hyundai launches Ioniq 5 N, first N-brand electric car

As a prelude to the Los Angeles Auto Show (AutoMobility LA), Hyundai Motor unveiled its first N-brand electric performance car, the Ioniq 5 N, equipped with a two-stage inverter and 84 kWh battery, with an output of up to 641 horsepower (478 kilowatts) .

Hyundai says the car’s performance features include battery preconditioning, brake regeneration, drift optimization, torque distribution and track-ready settings to enhance intense driving. The Ioniq 5 N will be followed by more N-brand high-performance electric vehicles.

Till Wartenberg, Vice President and Head of N Brand and Motorsport at Hyundai Motor, said: “The Ioniq 5 N was developed to take driving pleasure to the next level using the latest technology available. Starting with the Ioniq 5 N, the N brand’s ambition is to deliver a signature fun driving experience, whether petrol, electric or hydrogen. To achieve this, we paid close attention to the voices of N fans in order to fine-tune our first fully electric N car with the aim of inspiring the most discerning The driving passion of N car fans.”

The Ioniq 5 N adds welds and adhesives to the Ioniq 5’s body-in-white structure to increase stiffness. Reinforcements to the motor and battery mountings and modifications to the front and rear subframes increase lateral stiffness, while an integrated transaxle inspired by World Rally Championship design is applied to the front and rear bodywork to withstand the greater torque generated by performance driving. 21-inch forged aluminum wheels reduce unsprung mass.

Steering enhancements improve cornering stiffness, thanks to rack-mounted motor-driven power steering (R-MDPS), which features a faster gear ratio compared to the standard Ioniq 5.

Enhancements in handling and powertrain response are achieved through software to match the instant torque of electric propulsion. Similar to Hyundai’s i20 N WRC race car, the system increases torque vectoring and motor output and reduces efficiency figures at launch. The Ioniq 5 N allows weight transfer to the front when cornering rather than optimizing brake regeneration, which is an example of the change in strategy.

Finally, for drifters, the N-Drift Optimizer balances vehicle control with real-time inputs to help maintain ideal drift angles. A built-in torque kick function simulates the clutch action of a conventional rear-wheel-drive vehicle.

All of these performance changes are designed to accommodate improvements in the 2025 Ioniq 5 N’s power upgrades. When boost is activated via the N Grin button, the car’s electric motors (one per axle) spin to 21,000 rpm, delivering 641 hp. Powering it all is a new 84kWh battery.

Other systems on the car allow drivers to track usage during performance. For example, State of Charge Tracking displays battery consumption calculations for each lap and overall, maximizing available power. A thermal management system keeps the battery cool during intense driving and high-output situations, while separate heat sinks for the battery and motor improve thermal efficiency.

The driver can use this thermal management system to precondition the battery before taking to the track. Endurance and Sprint modes optimize battery temperature for longer racing or drag races.

In-vehicle system allows driver to track usage during performance

Braking power comes from an N-tuned braking system, the most powerful braking system Hyundai has ever produced. The system features 15.75-inch front rotors (14.2-inch rear rotors) and four-piston monoblock calipers. Regenerative braking systems can be calibrated by the driver for aggressive or non-aggressive use and are often the primary means of stopping power. The regenerative braking system provides up to 0.6 g of deceleration before engaging the physical calipers.

Finally, Hyundai has added faux gearshifts and futuristic engine-like sounds to provide a more engaging feel. Dubbed “N e-shift” and “N Active Sound,” these features simulate the power-shift feel and rev-matching of high-performance driving.

The 2025 Hyundai Ioniq 5 N, equipped with Pirelli P Zero performance tires and red accents, will hit the market in mid-2024 as a 2025 model.
