The N vision of electrification.

Launched in 2023 with its new technologies and elevated racetrack capability, IONIQ 5 N represents a new segment of high-performance EVs. Leveraging motorsport-bred technologies and years of Rolling Lab development, its technological advances demonstrate N brand’s electrification progress since launching the RN22e in 2022.

Rolling labs as test beds for the future.

Our first high-performance all-wheel drive EV – the IONIQ 5 N – follows N’s 2020 season entry in FIA ETCR, and the 2022 RN22e: N’s rolling lab for future EVs. Developing N Vision 74 and RN22e in parallel with other high-performance EVs is beneficial to Hyundai’s engineers in terms of knowledge exchange. For example, EVs tend to have different weight distribution than vehicles with internal combustion engines, so N engineers can test and develop cooling and braking technologies in extreme conditions at its Nürburgring test centre. By serving as rolling labs, N Vision 74 and RN22e will help make Hyundai’s technical vision of electrified high-performance soon become a reality.

N Vision 74

High-performance hydrogen fuel cell hybrid.

N Vision 74 is inspired by both technology and design – a rolling lab that underlines our leadership in sustainable performance technology. It is powered by the most advanced hydrogen fuel cell system we have ever created. In terms of design, N Vision 74 pays an homage to the Hyundai Pony Coupe concept from 1974, which was developed by the legendary car designer Giorgetto Giugiaro.

A ground-breaking design – 50 years in the making.

While developing the N Vision 74 rolling lab, Hyundai’s designers visited the Hyundai Design Center archives. There, they unearthed a previously little-seen blueprint drawing from 1977 that revealed an almost-forgotten plan: a production model of the Hyundai Pony Coupe concept. For Hyundai’s designers, the company’s past serves as a compass to guide our future. Inspired by the 1974 Hyundai Pony Coupe concept and its never-produced sporty sibling, N Vision 74 is the latest example of their ambition.

    Hyundai’s sustainable performance technology.

    N Vision 74 is the world’s first hydrogen hybrid high-performance vehicle and underlines Hyundai’s leadership in sustainable performance technology. In order to resolve the limitations of EVs, our engineers set about developing the N Vision 74 rolling lab. During the development phase, they opted to develop a hybrid structure of a battery-electric in combination with a fuel cell electric vehicle (FCEV) system.

    World's first FCEV hybrid.

    Hyundai’s engineers chose the bold new approach of two different power energy that can be used flexibly depending on different driving conditions.

      Innovative hybrid power train.

      Our engineers developed a hybrid structure of a battery-electric in combination with an FCEV system in an all-new layout. By having fuel cell system and battery-electric powering the N Vision 74 together, the cooling efficiency is improved, while the two different power sources can be used depending on different driving conditions.

      Advanced FCEV technology.

      Two 2.1 kg hydrogen tanks placed on the rear axle above two powerful motors – one to power each rear wheel independently – generate a total of 500 kW. The development of this in-house-developed system integration and control software was far more advanced than that of a normal EV, having more in common with that of Hyundai’s XCIENT Fuel Cell trucks.

      Torque vectoring technology.

      N Vision 74 is equipped with an FCEV logic VCU (Vehicle Control Unit) system with torque vectoring technology in the rear dual motor. Hyundai’s engineers developed their own in-house torque vectoring control software that works like a virtual limited slip differential.

      The cooling elements of N Vision 74 are fully integrated into its aerodynamic design, such as its pixelated front grille and side and rear vents. In addition, the air breeder on the car’s front wheels guides the side airflow into large cooling inlets to enable heat management of the power electric system.

    RN22e offers racetrack-ready performance by refining and optimizing Hyundai’s market-leading E-GMP and packaging it in an IONIQ 6-based streamliner design. As Hyundai N develops and verifies state-of-the-art technologies for transfer to N production models, RN22e plays an important role as the rolling lab for upcoming EV N models.

    Built on the N performance pillars.

    Knowing what exhilarates enthusiasts, N is developing new features to increase the emotional driving experience for electrified models. RN22e is tested to maximize N’s three performance pillars: Corner Rascal, Racetrack Capability and Everyday Sports Car. As it is a rolling lab, this technology will be further developed in via RN22e, so that drivers can enjoy it in the upcoming production models.

    The N range – inspired by motorsport.

    Motorsport is considered the cradle of the N model lineup. For Hyundai’s Motorsport division, success is defined in broader terms than simply winning races and earning titles; it also exists to develop independent knowledge and collect data that can be shared to build better production cars. With its motorsport background, these benefits are transferred to consumer vehicles.
