Hyundai Australia has unveiled the official pricing and specifications for its fastest and most expensive vehicle to date, the high-performance all-wheel-drive electric SUV, the Hyundai Ioniq 5 N. Prices for the range-topping Ioniq 5 N start from $111,000 AUD before on-road costs.
The Ioniq 5 N variant features a dual motor powertrain that delivers 448kW | 740N, and 478kW | 770 Nm in boost mode, resulting in acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.4 seconds. Top speed has also been boosted to 260 km/hr. This firmly places the Ioniq 5 N in the company of the most potent high-performance EVs on the market including the Tesla Model Y Performance, Kia EV6 GT and Volvo EX30 Dual Motor Performance.
Driving range is estimated to be 450km from the 85kWh battery.
Deliveries will commence in Q1 of 2024.
Hyundai Ioniq 5 N Key Specs: Range, Charging and Size
The range topping Ioniq 5 N is built on Hyundai/Kia's E-GMP dedicated EV platform and features an entirely new dual motor setup, delivering up 478kW of peak performance to all four wheels—175kW to the front and 313kW to the rear.
Underscoring its performance credentials, the boost feature allows drivers to experience the full power of the Ioniq 5 N by accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h in a mere 3.4 seconds.
Beyond its impressive straight-line performance, the Ioniq 5 N incorporates technological enhancements for optimal power distribution and driver engagement during cornering. You can read more about this in the following section.
The 84kWh battery (80.6 kWh useable) provides up to 450km of claimed WLTP range. The battery can also support a maximum charge rate at up to 240kW, resulting in a quick charge from 10% to 80% in just 18minutes using a 350kW DC rapid charger.
Hyundai Ioniq 5 N Size and Dimensions
The Ioniq 5 N is built on the same chassis as the remainder of the Ioniq 5 range, but is slightly longer. It is also at least 300kg heavier due to the slightly larger battery and more powerful motors that underpin the drivetrain.
Hyundai Ioniq 5 N Key Features
Advanced Technology and Performance
The vehicle boasts a dual-motor AWD system and rally-inspired handling, complemented by an upgraded steering column featuring the N R-MDPS system for enhanced steering response. The body structure's rigidity is augmented with additional welding points and adhesives. Technologies like the N Pedal and N Drift Optimizer elevate the driving experience, supported by a sophisticated torque distribution system and an electronic limited-slip differential (e-LSD).
For track enthusiasts, the IONIQ 5 N comes equipped with high-powered electric motors and an N Grin Boost feature for a surge in acceleration. It also includes an N Launch Control system and a Track SOC for monitoring battery consumption. The model's battery thermal management and regenerative braking system, N Brake Regen, are designed to sustain performance under track conditions.
As an Everyday Sportscar, the IONIQ 5 N incorporates N e-shift for controlled power delivery and N Active Sound +, offering a range of sound themes. The V2L feature, allowing the vehicle to power other devices, is retained, adding to its practicality.
Design and Comfort
In terms of design, the IONIQ 5 N stands out with its lowered, wider, and longer stature compared to the standard IONIQ 5. It features a specialized front fascia, aerodynamic elements, and high-performance tyres. The interior is adorned with a redesigned N steering wheel, N seats with reinforced bolsters, and sustainable materials throughout the cabin.
Safety and Convenience
The IONIQ 5 N doesn't compromise on safety and convenience, featuring an enhanced braking system, electronic limited-slip differential (e-LSD), and the versatile Vehicle-to-Load (V2L) feature.
Hyundai Ioniq 5 N vs. other Performance EVs
When it comes to straight-line speed, the Ioniq 5 N is the fastest electric SUV you can buy Australia currently. While it is much pricier than similarly quick SUVs as as the Tesla Model Y Performance, Kia EV6 GT and Volvo EX30 Dual Motor Performance - none of these have undergone the same level of performance tuning and modifications like the Ioniq 5 N.
