Hyundai's most recent project, the no longer-so-secret Ioniq 6 N, is creating waves once more. Though the Ioniq 5 N has just recently gone on sale, speculation is already circulating around the next high-performance Hyundai vehicle, which might debut as early as 2025. The Australian magazine Drive reports that the Ioniq 6 N is preparing to surpass its crossover sister, offering EV lovers even more power and excitement. Despite the Ioniq 5 N's recent release, rumors are swirling regarding Hyundai's upcoming high-performance vehicle, which might arrive as early as 2025. Drive, an Australian publication, has revealed that the Ioniq 6 N is expected to outperform its crossover cousin by providing electric car aficionados with more power and excitement.
The Ioniq 6 N will have two motors instead of the Ioniq 5 N's 650 horsepower. While precise torque numbers are not yet available, it is significant that the Ioniq 5 N already has an astounding 739 Nm of torque. If rumors about the Ioniq 6 N are correct, it may even be able to accelerate faster than the high-riding variant, reaching 100 km/h in 3.4 seconds.
There are also rumors regarding the Ioniq 6 N's possible weight decrease. Comparing the regular dual-motor version to the Ioniq 5 with all-wheel drive and a bigger 77.4-kWh battery, the former is expected to lose about 27 kg. The streamlined and aerodynamic design of the sedan is responsible for this weight decrease, which may also indicate a lower center of gravity.
It is hardly a surprise when the Ioniq 6 N shows up. Hyundai unveiled the RN22e concept last year, offering a preview of what electric car performance may look like in the future. With 577 horsepower, the RN22e was a strong competitor for the Kia EV6 GT, another electric vehicle. Hyundai's dedication to expanding the possibilities for electric performance was demonstrated with the RN22e, which functioned as a testbed for high-performance uses of the E-GMP platform.
As worldwide pollution standards become more stringent, the car sector is seeing a notable transition towards electric mobility. The sale of new automobiles with emissions is scheduled to end in the European Union in 2035, and the implementation of Euro 7 standards is imminent. With these modifications, an age in which electric automobiles are no longer merely sci-fi ideas but rather a reality today has begun.
Hyundai wants to be a leader in the electric vehicle market in this changing environment by making sure that exciting and dynamic automobiles run on motors and batteries instead of conventional combustion engines and fossil fuels.
