Hyundai Ioniq 6 N Coming With More Power Than Ioniq 5 N: Report

Despite the fact that the Ioniq 5 N’s initial reviews have just surfaced, a juicy rumour suggests Hyundai is already developing the second electric N model. The Ioniq 6 N, which is rumoured to be under development, might launch as early as 2025, according to a recent rumour from Australian magazine Drive. That should come as no surprise given that the RN22e concept from the previous year offered a glimpse of a high-performance vehicle that might not require a combustion engine in the future.

The Ioniq 6 N is expected to outperform its crossover sister thanks to a dual-motor system that generates over 641 horsepower. Although it isn’t stated, the Ioniq 5 N can produce a combined 545 lb-ft of torque. Drive continues to ponder about it could be even quicker than the high-riding model, which needs 3.2 seconds to reach 60 mph from a standstill.

Hyundai RN22e

The RN22e was introduced by Hyundai last year, and the company described it as a “glimpse of an upcoming EV N.” It matched the Kia EV6 GT precisely, with 577 horsepower available. High-performance applications of the E-GMP platform are tested on the RN22e. The N division isn’t given up on combustion engine vehicles just yet, either. Actually, it’s anticipated that the upcoming Elantra N will use a larger gasoline engine in the absence of electrification.

Stricter emissions rules are gradually eliminating high-powered internal combustion engines (ICEs), therefore future electric N models are probably going to be more common than gas ones. This is particularly true in the European Union, where new emission-producing automobile sales are scheduled to end in 2035. Meanwhile, Euro 7 regulations set to come into effect in a couple of years have been watered down but the era of gas-guzzling, non-hybrid engines is almost over.

The future seems inevitably electric, and Hyundai wants to keep fun cars alive with motors and batteries instead of combustion engines and fossil fuels.
