Hyundai Unveils N Vision 74 Hydrogen Fuel Cell Hybrid & RN22e
Hyundai recently concluded its N Day 2022 presentation, where it showed off two exciting “rolling lab” concepts that company says demonstrate its “ambition to become a leader in the zero-emissions future.” Bear in mind the “N” badge represents Hyundai’s high-performance lineup with both concepts sporting some enticing figures. The N Day comes once in a year when Hyundai fans eagerly await to see the future of performance cars from the South Korean manufacturer.
The Hyundai RN22e is a racetrack focused version of Ioniq 6 which is used by the company as a Rolling Lab for the future Ioniq 6 N which is expected to debut in 2023. The RN22e has the same 77.4kWh battery as the future Ioniq 6, but many parts have been upgraded. The front and rear track is much wider and the body panels have been changed accordingly.
The front bumper is clearly designed for motorsport and the rear wing completes the aggressive looks. The front bumper channels the airflow to the sides to cool the brakes and through the hood to boost the downforce. The camera mirrors of Ioniq6 are replaced with standard motorsport items as per regulation requirements. The concept rides on 21” rims wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport+ rubber and sits at least 50mm lower than the standard Ioniq 6. Inside there is a full roll-cage and performance bucket seats instead of the standard ones.
Under the hood is a twin-motor AWD system that delivers 585 hp (430kW) with a combined torque of 740Nm. Top speed is rated at over 250km/h and unsurprisingly it takes 18 minutes to charge the battery from 10 to 80%.
