Hyundai Ioniq 5 N Officially Priced Above Tesla Model Y Performance

Published Categorized as Hyundai No Comments on Hyundai Ioniq 5 N Officially Priced Above Tesla Model Y Performance

The 2025 Hyundai Ioniq 5 N emerges as the pinnacle of Hyundai’s performance lineup, boasting remarkable power and speed. Priced at $66,100 (excluding $1,375 freight), this electric powerhouse will be available solely in a fully loaded trim, setting high expectations for enthusiasts.

Equipped with two electric motors generating a combined 641 horsepower, the Ioniq 5 N showcases the N Grin Boost feature, propelling it from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.25 seconds, with a top speed of 162 mph.

Notably, it introduces the innovative N e-Shift function, emulating eight gears akin to a dual-clutch transmission. Although details on the official range are awaited, the N model comes with a robust 82-kWh battery pack, promising impressive endurance.

In the competitive landscape, Hyundai faces formidable contenders, including the Kia EV6 GT and the Tesla Model Y Performance.

Sharing the same E-GMP platform, the EV6 GT offers comparable charging capabilities but trails in range due to its smaller 77.4-kWh battery. Despite its lower starting price of $61,600, the EV6 GT lacks Hyundai’s N e-Shift feature, which enhances driving dynamics.

On the other hand, the Tesla Model Y Performance, priced at $52,490 and eligible for a $7,500 tax credit, presents a compelling alternative.

However, the Ioniq 5 N distinguishes itself with a comprehensive array of features, including 21-inch forged wheels, rear-axle e-LSD, and advanced driver assistance technologies like Highway Driving Assist 2.

While the Model Y Performance offers 455 horsepower and a 0-60 mph time of 3.5 seconds, the Ioniq 5 N outpaces it in sheer acceleration and top speed.

Although specific range figures are pending, Hyundai’s boasting of a peak charge speed of 238 kW, facilitating rapid charging from 10% to 80% in just 18 minutes, aligns it closely with Tesla’s charging prowess.

The Hyundai Ioniq 5 N presents a compelling blend of performance, technology, and charging capabilities, positioning itself as a formidable contender in the electric vehicle segment.
