Hyundai Australia has confirmed it will be launching a one-day pre-sale online event for the new IONIQ 5 N high-performance EV, with prices starting from $111,000.
Yep, it is the most expensive Hyundai ever. But it’s also the most powerful Hyundai ever and perhaps the most interesting model ever. A special 12-hour pre-sale event will take place on September 15.
The IONIQ 5 N will be offered in a single trim line in Australia, featuring all of the kit offered for it. For the pre-sale buyers, Hyundai is also chucking in some special N luggage and merchandise worth around $1000.
Two options will be available, including a $2000 Vision Roof and $1000 matte paint in either Atlas White or Gravity Gold. Hyundai Australia’s CEO, Ted Lee, spoke about the exciting sale event, saying:
“The IONIQ 5 N pre-sale event will give our N-thusiast customers the chance to be the very first in Australia to experience Hyundai N’s spectacular first all-electric vehicle.”
To refresh your memory, the IONIQ 5 N is based on the E-GMP architecture like the IONIQ 6 and Kia EV6, featuring an 84kWh battery that feeds two electric motors. These produce a combined 448kW, or up to 478kW with boost mode activated.
There are a heap of driving modes and fun settings to play with, including the N Grin Boost, N e-shift artificial gear shifting, N Active Sound for some noise, and other N driving modes. It sprints from 0-100km/h in a claimed 3.4 seconds in boost mode.
The pre-sale event takes place on September 15, as mentioned, with the first customer deliveries scheduled to begin in the first quarter of 2024 – as mentioned in our top 10 best SUVs coming to Australia feature. Vehicles will be built to customer order.
