Hyundai Ioniq 6 N, the new electric sports car spied for the first time

After showing you the new Hyundai Ioniq 5 N, where the N stands for “stationary sports car”, here we have the first spy shots of Ionic 6 Na high-performance electric sedan that promises very well, due to the results of the basic version and the excellent work done on its younger sister.

No wonder, since when Hyundai introduced the Ioniq 6 in June 2022, the interest and curiosity of the public was immediately directed towards its future sports variant. Just a month after the launch of the Ionic 6, the Korean company had unveiled a model called the RN22e, immediately dispelling doubts related to the performance version of the sedan. At the same time, the success of the base Ionic 6 has led to winning various badges, including one of the safest cars on the market.

The launch of the Ioniq 6 N seems imminent, as test versions of the model have been spotted at Germany’s Nürburgring track. Hyundai is working hard on this sports sedan. Confirmed to be 6 N, this appears (from spy photos taken during testing) with a more aerodynamic line than the base version. We believe that it is unlikely to be another example, as the aerodynamics of the Ionic 6 already lends itself very well to modifications to make it in all respects a sports car without half measures. According to these rhythms, it is expected that the Hyundai Ioniq 6 N could be launched (or delivered) next year.

Ioniq 6 N is expected to use more than E-GMP architecture capabilitywhile some rumors suggest that Hyundai can increase the power of the Ioniq 5 N over 600 horsepower which, as it is, can even reach 641 horsepower with the N Grin Boost activated: if these are the premises, who knows what we can expect. from Ionix 6 N.

Although the infection can remain the same, and there is a possibility accelerating from 0 to 60 km/h better than the already 3.2 seconds of the Ioniq 5 N. It is possible to expect the approach of the second threshold 3.0 to challenge the competition of the Tesla Model 3 which, according to some rumors, should reach 2.9 seconds with an update expected at the end of this year (or the beginning of ‘next. year).

The prototype seen of this alleged Ioniq 6 N has a modified rear spoiler and hidden bumpers at the front and rear. The Big red brake calipers they clearly confirm that it is the N variant and not the regular Ioniq 6 (or in any case the base version). The body shape is probably provisional, so there is no information about the final design. The wheel arches are approximately 50 mm wider than the production model, and this made several modifications necessary. Another clue that we can see concerns the size of the wheels, which are 20 inches and have Pirelli P Zero tires (275/35 R20 seen on the rear axle).
