Hyundai revealed its most powerful vehicle yet, the fully electric IONIQ 5 N, last year. As Hyundai N’s first electric car, the performance brand left nothing on the table.

Riding on a modified version of its E-GMP platform, the Hyundai IONIQ 5 N packs up to 641 horsepower and a host of track-ready features. This electric sports car is equipped to compete with the best. Hyundai N included features like rear e-LSD, electronic-controlled suspension, and N Grin Boost to ensure the EV lives up to its name.

Hyundai’s performance EV checks the three “performance pillars of N,” including Corner Rascal, Race Track Capability, and Everyday Sports Car.

Hyundai designed the electric sports car to stand out from the competition, inside and out. The IONIQ 5 N includes “N-exclusive” elements like a glossy black front bumper, radiator grille, and rear spoiler to optimize airflow and performance.

The sports EV is lower, wider, and has larger tires, adding to its aggressive design. Hyundai also built the front and rear suspension from the ground up.

Inside, Hyundai designed the EV based on a racing concept. For a sporty feel, you will find N bucket sports seats, a new N-exclusive steering wheel, and an N-exclusive center console.

The Hyundai IONIQ 5 N is the brand’s most powerful car yet, but can it keep up with some of the quickest sports SUVs on the market?

The folks over at Hagerty put the Hyundai IONIQ 5 N up against a Lamborghini Urus Performante, Porsche Macan GTS, Jaguar F-Pace SVR, and Maserati Grecale Trofeo to see.

As you can see, Hyundai’s high-performance EV smokes the competition in the first race. Here’s how the IONIQ 5 N stacks up.

Vehicle Horsepower 0 to 60 mph 1/4 mile Starting Price
Hyundai IONIQ 5 N 641 hp 3.0 sec 11.1 sec $66,100
Lamborghini Urus Performante 657 hp 3.1 sec 11.6 sec $269,885
Porsche Macan GTS 434 hp 3.5 sec 12.3 sec $88,450
Jaguar F-Pace SVR 550 hp 3.8 sec 12.2 sec $93,175
Maserati Grecale Trofeo 523 hp 3.6 sec 12.2 sec $108,000

After bringing in a Lamborghini to up the competition, it still wasn’t enough to top the Hyundai IONIQ 5. Despite a rapid launch, the IONIQ 5 steadily comes back and outpaces the Lambo. And it’s less than a quarter of the cost.

Even Hagerty’s host said, “If you don’t think electric vehicles are resetting the world order, well, now’s your chance.”

Hyundai’s sporty electric car just destroyed the fastest versions of a Lamborghini, Porsche, Jaguar, and Maserati. What’s next for Hyundai? Stay tuned (In the meantime, check out our exclusive interview with Hyundai Motor America CEO Randy Parker).
