At the official practice session for the forthcoming Hyundai N Festival, Hyundai introduced the IONIQ 5 N eN1 Cup Car, marking a significant change in the company’s strategy for electric vehicle (EV) racing. Hyundai’s dedication to balancing sustainability and performance is demonstrated by this development, as the IONIQ 5 N eN1 Cup Car becomes a representation of cutting-edge racing technology and ecological responsibility.

The Cup Car version, which is based on the high-performance IONIQ 5 N, comes with a number of motorsport upgrades meant to withstand the demands of track competition, such as aerodynamically superior body kit and slick tires, as well as safety-enhancing weight-saving measures.

With a power electronics system that is similar to the production IONIQ 5 N, the Cup Car represents Hyundai’s technological prowess and the company’s aspirations in the high-performance EV market. Its notable characteristics include an 84.0 kWh battery that allows for strong performance and durability and a power output of up to 650 PS, or around 641 hp.

Hyundai’s plan to launch the eN1 class at the N Festival offers teams a thrilling opportunity to investigate and succeed on the cutting edge of electric vehicle racing. This action, along with the introduction of open tire standards, represents a more comprehensive dedication to innovation and diversity within the racing industry.

The Hyundai IONIQ 5 N eN1 Cup Car will make its formal premiere at the Hyundai N Festival motorsports event at South Korea’s Inje Speedium on April 27 for those who would like to see the new performance EV up close.
