This may look like a Hyundai Ioniq 6 which has been in a crash, but under the patchwork quilt bodywork is a new N version of the brand’s sleek electric saloon. 

  • New Hyundai Ioniq 6 N spotted
  • The second all-electric N car
  • More aggressive styling
  • Could have over 650hp
  • Reveal not expected until 2025

This is your first look at the new Hyundai Ioniq 6 N, a high-performance version of the brand’s Tesla Model 3 alternative. It’s in the early stages of development for now, however you can expect to see plenty of parts shared with the Ioniq 5 N.

New Hyundai Ioniq 6 N design

The Hyundai Ioniq 6 already looks pretty sporty in standard form, but this prototype hints towards some aggressive new styling to help the N version stand out.

This is just a test mule for the Ioniq 6 N, so a lot of the bodywork is the same as the standard car. The wheels fitted here are noticeably more sporty-looking than the ones found on the normal 6, and there are some bright red brake callipers hiding behind them.

You can ignore the tacked-on wheel arch extensions for now, but they do suggest that the N model will have a wider body kit than standard to accommodate larger wheels. Expect to see a redesigned front and rear bumper as well.

You can look towards the RN22e concept from last year (above) if you want an idea of what the Ioniq 6 N will look like. It’ll be toned down a bit for production, but that massive wing isn’t beyond the realms of possibility.

New Hyundai Ioniq 6 N motors and performance

The Hyundai Ioniq 5 and Ioniq 6 are based on the same collection of parts under the skin, so it’s likely that this new performance saloon will use the same dual-motor setup as the Ioniq 5 N.

While nothing is confirmed yet, the 5 N has a whopping 650hp going to all four wheels, and it’ll do 0-60mph in 3.4 seconds. The Ioniq 6 N is likely to be lighter than that car though, so it could be even faster.

When can I buy a new Hyundai Ioniq 6 N?

The Hyundai Ioniq 6 N is in the early stages of development at the moment, so you’ll be waiting until at least early 2025 to see this car revealed in full. As for price, the Hyundai Ioniq 5 N is over £20,000 more than the standard car. By this logic, the Ioniq 6 N could cost close to £70,000.
