Hyundai Plans Electric Supercar With More Than 550 Horsepower

Hyundai: During the N Day presentation this Tuesday (27), Hyundai said it plans to launch an electric supercar in the near future. Without great details, the zero-emission model will be part of the N line – high performance division.

Apparently the vehicle would be a modified version of the Ioniq 5 with the powertrain of the Kia EV6 GT. This latest model stands out for its 577 hp, enough power to go from 0-100 km / h in just 3.5 seconds.

Experts believe that Hyundai is considering launching more electric cars under the seal of the high-performance division. The Ioniq 5 N would thus be the first logical step for the South Korean car manufacturer on this road.

Currently, the most powerful version of the electric model delivers 301 hp and the ability to accelerate from 0-100 km / h in 5.2 seconds. In addition, the vehicle reaches a top speed of 185 km / h.

During the presentation Hyundai also stated that it is exploring the possibility of creating a powerful vehicle powered by fuel cells. While it didn’t define anything, it would test the formula in some prototypes.

In realistic forecast, the technology should not appear in N Line cars until the very distant future. However, it is worth noting that the car manufacturer has a tradition of building vehicles with this characteristic.

Nexus Example

The Hyundai Nexo is the brand reference for vehicles powered by fuel cells. Simple, it provides 161 horses by bringing a single electric motor up front that can reach a top speed of around 180 mph.

While it doesn’t look like a powerful example like the N Line, the model could get more power with a second electric motor and applications of technologies that would help improve performance.
