The N division makes the sportiest versions of many Hyundai models
One of the two new models could be the Ioniq 5 N and the other could be a Sonata N
Both models will be revealed on July 15
Hyundai released two teaser images on its Twitter page which show two upcoming N models that will be unveiled on July 15.
One of the two vehicles is almost assuredly the Ioniq 5 N which has already been spotted testing on the roads wearing camouflage, while the other seems to be a larger car, which could be an N version of the Sonata.
The first image shows a blurry car speeding on a race track. This is most likely the Ioniq 5 N, which will be the first electric car to be tuned by the automaker’s N division.
The work that will be done to the EV is reported to include a lowered suspension and more powerful motors that could help it accelerate from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in only 3.5 seconds. This vehicle is painted in the usual light blue colour that is available on every N vehicle from Hyundai.
The second image features a fairly large car that is covered by a black veil that only reveals its general shape.
This means that this second vehicle could be a sedan or a fastback model equipped with a large rear wing. If it turns out to be a fastback, this model will not have a “regular” version like every other N model.
The more probable outcome is that this vehicle will be an N version of the Sonata, the largest sedan sold by Hyundai in North America.
This vehicle is not expected to be powered by electricity, but it could be the last new N model to be equipped with a gasoline engine since the automaker is moving to an entirely electric lineup.
These speculations will be confirmed or denied in ten days when the covers will be lifted from the two vehicles.
