Is The 2024 Hyundai Ioniq 5 N The First Fun To Drive, Sporty EV We Want?


As it packs 641hp, the new 2024 Hyundai Ioniq 5 N is looking quite promising

While electric vehicles (EVs) have become the norm in many parts of the world already, there is still one glaring problem with them and that is that they are not as fun to drive as some internal combustion engine (ICE) sports cars which means many enthusiasts are a bit reluctant to make the switch. Hyundai is about to change all that now.

Car enthusiasts have been waiting for it and finally, the 2024 Hyundai Ioniq 5 N has been unveiled ahead of its public debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed and it promises to be more driver-focused than any of its EV rivals and aims to be just as fun to drive as the brand’s much more fun to drive petrol powered N models.

Moreover, like the regular Ioniq 5, the new 2024 Hyundai Ioniq 5 N is based on the brand’s Electric-Global Module Platform and leverages the expertise Hyundai has gained through the RM20e, RN22e, and N Vision 74 rolling lab creations. It features an enlarged 84kWh battery pack and revised electric motors both front and rear. Hyundai

This gives the Hyundai Ioniq 5 N 222hp up front and 378hp from the rear motor which produces a combined 601hp. This can be further enhanced to 641hp in Boost mode, giving the car even more power than the Kia EV6 GT and a century sprint time of 3.4 seconds as well as a top speed of 260km/h.

On top of that, the 2024 Hyundai Ioniq 5 N sets itself apart and is fun to drive thanks to the addition of features like N e-shift and N Active Sound+ with the former simulating the eight-speed dual-clutch transmission of Hyundai’s ICE N cars by controlling motor torque output and simulating the jolt you get when shifting gears.

Meanwhile the N Active Sound+ function uses eight internal and two external speakers with an ‘Ignition’ sound profile to mimic Hyundai N’s 2.0-liter turbo-four cylinder engine, an ‘Evolution’ option with a sound similar to the RN22e, and a ‘Supersonic’ theme inspired by twin-engine fighter jets.

Of course, the interior of the 2024 Hyundai Ioniq 5 N is also quite a bit different as it sports a completely new steering wheel and includes various N buttons, including the N Grin Boost button, new metal paddle shifters for the regenerative braking, the center console has knee pads and shin supports and N bucket seats come standard.
