A New Chapter in Electric High Performance.

Hyundai’s first-ever high-performance Electric Vehicle, the IONIQ 5 N, has arrived in New Zealand, applying creative thinking, new technology and world-beating engineering to revolutionise the high-performance EV game.


“The IONIQ 5 N is a car we are immensely excited about introducing to the New Zealand market. We have developed a loyal following amongst electric vehicle enthusiasts since we launched the original IONIQ back in 2017” says Hyundai New Zealand Chief Executive Officer, Scott Kelsey.

“The IONIQ 5 N represents the pinnacle in all those years of research and development. There has always been a question mark of whether an electric vehicle can represent the enjoyment factor of a combustion vehicle. One quick spin in the IONIQ 5 N is enough to answer this question with a resounding yes.”


This ground-breaking performance car showcases Hyundai N’s three core principles: Everyday Sportscar, Corner Rascal, and Racetrack Capability.

Everyday Sportscar: IONIQ 5 N, as Hyundai N’s first EV, focuses on intuitive and spirited driving, and ushers in new technologies including N Active Sound+ and N e-Shift. And, like all IONIQ 5’s, it is engineered to be quiet, comfortable and cossetting during everyday road driving.

Corner Rascal: IONIQ 5 N leverages its advanced E-GMP platform to deliver dynamic capability and driving fun through features such as N Torque Distribution, electronic Limited-Slip Differential, Electronic Controlled Suspension (ECS) and a reinforced body structure.


Racetrack Capability: IONIQ 5 N delivers optimal EV performance for track driving with technologies including N Race, N Pedal, N Launch Control, N Grin Boost and Track State of Charge.

Dynamic – Dynamic design reflects IONIQ 5 N’s high-performance capabilities headlined by N-
exclusive bumpers, wheel arch extensions, 21-inch wheels and a rear spoiler. N Light sports front seats, steering wheel, console with lateral support, pedals and footrest are optimised for convenient daily use and maximum driving immersion.


Potent – All-wheel drive IONIQ 5 N’s 478kW, 770Nm EV powertrain (with N Grin Boost deployed) is calibrated to be as easygoing and smooth for everyday driving as it is fast and fun on a twisty backroad.
IONIQ 5 N’s body, cooling architecture, friction and regenerative braking systems, axle design and geometry are all thoroughly reworked from IONIQ 5.

Electrifying – IONIQ 5 N elevates the driving experience in ways only possible with an electrified powertrain, especially in the area of throttle response and torque delivery, while N e-Shift and N-Active Sound+ deliver a more traditional and immersive driving experience with virtual gear-shifting feel and simulated sound. These features are unique among performance EV’s and deliver more involvement and engagement to the enthusiast driver. N Drift Optimizer, N Pedal and N Launch Control deliver a uniquely fun circuit driving experience, while N-exclusive features such as N Torque Distribution also support track
