Detailed Australian specifications for IONIQ 5 N will be announced closer to launch.

IONIQ 5 N
As Hyundai N’s first EV, IONIQ 5 N represents a new segment of driver-focused high performance EVs through the integration of new technologies and elevated racetrack
IONIQ 5 N elevates the three pillars of N performance – ‘Corner Rascal’, ‘Racetrack Capability’ and ‘Everyday Sportscar’ – leveraging motorsport-bred technologies and years
of electrified ‘Rolling Lab’ development:
- Corner Rascal: Body and chassis reinforcements provide higher torsional rigidity and direct steering feel, enabling rally-inspired dual-motor AWD cornering
- Racetrack Capability: Up to 478 kW with N Grin Boost engaged, increased endurance with industry-leading thermal management and regenerative braking
- Everyday Sportscar: N e-shift and N Active Sound + deliver an electrifying sports car experience with tactile feel and immersive sound
N Drift Optimiser is among an array of high-performance driving technologies integral to IONIQ 5 N, all designed to deliver even more fun around the racetrack.
N Pedal prioritises fast and exhilarating cornering over energy efficiency. By utilising decelerative force, an aggressive weight transfer is created, resulting in sharper corner
IONIQ 5 N is also fitted with responsive features to deliver an electrifying sports car experience. Drivers can engage with a symphony of high-performance sound from N Active Sound + immersive driving noises, while N e-shift connects you to the car like never before with tactile virtual gearshifts.
A technological tour de force developed on the E-GMP platform, IONIQ 5 N features WRCinspired integrated drive axle all-wheel drive with dual electric motors delivering a combined 478 kW with N Grin Boost applied.
High-performance hardware includes electronically-controlled suspension, an electronic limited slip rear differential (e-LSD), and forged 21-inch aluminium wheels wrapped in bespoke 275/35R21 Pirelli P-Zero tyres.
A quick-ratio steering rack and N-tuned brakes, featuring 400mm front discs clamped by four-piston monobloc calipers, further demonstrate IONIQ 5 N’s track bred pedigree.
IONIQ 5 N’s exterior is headlined by an N Mask graphic fascia featuring air curtain and air flap apertures, a lip spoiler, and EV N-exclusive ‘Luminous Orange’ lower highlight which continues into the side skirts.
A wing-type rear spoiler, orange-accented rear diffuser and air outlet, plus an array of black trim parts complete IONIQ 5 N’s aggressive image.
The motorsport theme continues inside with N-branded interior elements including the newly designed N steering wheel, sports seats, scuff panels and metal pedals.
*Australian specifications and features will be confirmed closer to launch and may differ from those listed above.
