Rumoured Ioniq 6 N Could be a Supercar Crusher

With more than 640 hp, the Ioniq 6 N might be a sub-3-second car


There’s little doubt that Hyundai is preparing to launch an Ioniq 6 N. This electric sedan, part of the esteemed N performance-car lineup, promises to outshine not only all other N vehicles but could very well become one of the fastest accelerating new cars for sale.

Hyundai Ioniq 5 N Gets More Power, Track-Ready Battery System

As the second electric model in Hyundai’s N series, the Ioniq 6 N is currently under wraps, with a targeted showroom debut by 2025. This timeline follows Hyundai’s pattern of unveiling their performance models, such as the mid-2022 release of the standard Ioniq 6, suggesting a well-planned entry for the Ioniq 6 N into the electric market.

 

The Ioniq 6 N is rumored to eclipse the impressive Ioniq 5 N, which recently set a high bar with its 641 hp and 568 lb-ft of torque output. Knowing what Hyundai is capable of, we can effortlessly imagine a near 700-hp figure in boost mode for the 6 N. If we benchmark it against the Ioniq 5 N’s capabilities, the 6 will blow the doors off almost every other car. The 5 N covers the 0-100km/h sprint in a scant 3.4 seconds. It also hasthe ability to handle two consecutive laps of the challenging 20.832km-long Nurburgring racetrack without overheating. We think the sleeker and potentially lighter Ioniq 6 N might be a sub-3 scond car.

Hyundai’s commitment to an N-tuned Ioniq 6 was previewed by the RN22e concept. The Drive tested this concept on racetracks in Australia and Germany, demonstrating Hyundai’s serious intent in the performance EV sector. The RN22e, sharing its foundation with the production Ioniq 6, already includes enhancements like a stiffer body shell, strengthened subframes, and upgraded suspension.

 

The Ioniq 6 N is expected to surpass these features, offering advancements in driving dynamics, technology, and overall performance. This model will likely incorporate a more efficient battery, powerful motors, and larger brakes, culminating in mind-blowing performance.

 

We’ll likely find out more about the Hyundai Ioniq 6 N before too long. There’s also the part where the car has yet to be confirmed but we’re convinced the Korean giant will not pass up an opportunity to tackle not only a C8 Corvette but just about anything electric from Porsche and Tesla for a fraction of the price.
