Hyundai IONIQ 5 N

The eagerly anticipated Hyundai IONIQ 5 N will be at Everything Electric LONDON

The Hyundai IONIQ 5 N, one of 2024’s most eagerly anticipated EVs, will be showcased at Everything Electric LONDON, 28-30 March at London ExCeL – and you can save 20% on tickets for the event through Green Car Guide.

So why is the Hyundai IONIQ 5 N so special? Well, it’s an electric car designed for drivers who want driving characteristics that are more like a petrol car.

The IONIQ 5 N offers up to 650PS of power and 770Nm of torque, resulting in a 0-62mph time of just 3.4 seconds, and a top speed of 161mph. But it’s the long list of ‘N’ performance-focused features that make this really interesting.

Top of the list is the simulated eight-speed dual-clutch transmission (‘N e-shift’), which allows the driver to control simulated eight-speed dual-clutch transmission gearshifts using the paddles on the steering column.

Working with N e-shift is N Active Sound+, using ten speakers (eight internal, two external), which simulates an ‘ignition’ sound, a high-performance sound, and a ‘supersonic’ cornering sound, inspired by twin-engine fighter jets.

‘N Torque Distribution’ is fully variable front and rear torque distribution that can be adjusted to 11 levels, with an e-LSD (electronic limited slip differential) at the rear axle which aims to optimise cornering performance and control.

‘N Grin Boost’ (NGB) increases power from 609PS to 650 PS, maximising acceleration for up to 10 seconds. ‘N Launch Control’ includes three different traction levels in order to deliver the fastest possible start.

Other ‘N’ features include the ‘N Pedal’, which provides enhanced throttle sensitivity and sharper cornering. ‘N Drift Optimizer’ helps to maintain drift angles, and a ‘Torque Kick Drift’ helps to provide more immediate drift initiation.

The IONIQ 5 N’s powertrain is enhanced for performance in the areas of power output, battery cooling and braking. The EV also has additional strengthening of its body and its steering, together with Electronic Controlled Suspension (ECS), which adapts suspension stiffness according to the drive mode.

To counteract excess battery temperatures resulting from continuous fast driving, which can degrade performance, the IONIQ 5 N has an enhanced battery thermal management system.

The ‘N Race’ feature of the IONIQ 5 N allows drivers to prioritise ‘Endurance’ or ‘Sprint’ modes. ‘Endurance’ maximises range on the racetrack by limiting the peak power, which results in a slower build-up of battery temperature, whilst ‘Sprint’ prioritises power and provides shorter bursts of full energy.

The IONIQ 5 N features N-tuned brakes, with new lightweight materials and optimised airflow for improved cooling efficiency.

The car sits 20mm lower overall than the standard model, it’s 50mm wider at the arches to accommodate wider tyres, and 80mm longer due to the diffuser. Pirelli P-Zero tyres aim to offer improved ride and handling and better grip on the track, and new N bucket seats are positioned 20mm lower compared to the standard model.

Sounds like you need to book tickets to see the IONIQ 5 N at Everything Electric LONDON, brought to you by Fully Charged. As well as all the new EVs on display, you can even drive many of them, as the event is due to offer the biggest electric test drive programme in the world.

The show will also feature 40 expert live sessions across three days in the Giga and Mega Theatres, and Green Car Guide’s founder and editor Paul Clarke will be on stage again with Everything Electric in 2024, speaking in two panel sessions with Jack Scarlett at the London event.
