It’s still mind-blowing, isn’t it? A sub-$100K all-electric car challenging the supremacy of some of the world’s most revered supercars? Prepare to have your perceptions shattered. South Korea has achieved it. Say goodbye to the days of envying Ferrari or Lambo drivers. Here’s why.

Enter the Hyundai Ioniq 5 N, an eco-friendly marvel unafraid to devour tires and equipped with an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission simulation, boasting a peak output of 641 hp and 568 lb-ft (770 Nm) of torque. When not pushed to its limits, it still commands a formidable 601 electrified stallion.

While its numbers might not match those of a Lucid Air Grand Touring or a Tesla Model S Plaid, what sets it apart is its distinctiveness. Unlike the spicy electric crossover SUVs that resemble hatchbacks from afar, the Ioniq 5 N stands tall, holding its own in the industry of performance.

For now, the Ioniq 5 N reigns supreme, not even ceding its throne to its half-sibling, the less potent Kia EV6 GT. Some might argue that the Tesla Model Y Performance could rival the South Korean ride, but it falls short by over 100 hp. Even the brand-new Porsche Macan Turbo Electric fails to match the Ioniq 5 N, boasting only 630 “clean” ponies when pushed to its limits.

And if you’re still not convinced, consider this: the Hyundai packs 14 hp more than the V8-powered BMW M5 CS and outmatches even the Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 S, with its eight-cylinder powerplant producing a modest 510 hp.

However, undeterred, the Ioniq 5 N faced its rivals. From a manual Porsche 911 GT3 to a Mercedes-AMG G 63 with a Brabus tune, the EV emerged victorious, leaving its combustion-engine counterparts in its electric dust. Even against a V10-powered Huracan STO and a Ferrari 812 Competizione, the Ioniq 5 N held its own, proving its mettle on the drag strip.

It’s a win-win, with the added perk of skipping the gas station altogether. Ultimately, this drag race underscores the diverse array of options available to automotive enthusiasts, catering to every taste and budget. Long may it continue.
