    The high-performance electric Hyundai Ioniq 5 N will make its debut at this year's Goodwood Festival of Speed in the UK in July 2023. The much-anticipated sports EV from the makers of class-leading hot hatches such as the Hyundai i20N and Hyundai i30N has previously been spied testing on public roads near the Nurburgring, where the European arm of the N division is based.

    In the spy pictures, although disguised, the Ioniq 5 N is seen with a more aggressive front end with a new lower grille opening, flanked by two air dams. Wider wheel arches also feature, housing new five-spoke alloys and larger brakes. A new spoiler is present at the rear end with a dual-segment design that dips in the centre.

    It's anticipated that the Ioniq 5 N will feature a 'drift mode' similar to that on the 585hp Kia EV6 GT, with which the Ioniq 5 shares its platform, and Genesis GV60.

    Hyundai UK managing director Ashley Andrew highlighted the Ioniq 5 N's importance to the brand's credibility. "Having N cars is a key point of difference for Hyundai – they hammer home the point that we are a car company, not just a company that makes cars," he said. "The essence of successful car manufacturing is when all the talented people come together to have fun, and what I love about Ioniq 5 N is that they are using all that know-how, and all that technology to create a car with the sort of character that we will all recognise from great performance cars of the past."

    Hyundai currently sells the Ioniq 5 EV in India, priced at Rs 44.95 lakh (ex-showroom). The company also sells N Line versions of the i20 and the Venue, which get a few upgrades over the standard models.
