Korea is already in full motion to throw another one, two knockout punch to finish off the game and establish itself as the de facto leader in electric cars. The first involves ultra high performance modification of the existing electric vehicle models to turn your daily drivers into legitimate supercars that anyone can purchase, and the second involves turning the already striking existing products into something even more flamboyant, yet practical. At the same time, to increase its appeal globally so before we go on wed highly appreciate your support by subscribing and turning on the notification bell. If you havent already – and please dont, forget to like comment and vote on the question thats presented at the end of the video about to make its world premiere at the end day, 2022 is none other than ionic 5n. The ultra high performance version of the world car of the year ionic 5, which even in stock form, looks outright exotic with 80s launch a delta integrale inspired sport, hatchback appearance. Ionic 5n is code developed with kia ev6 gt, which shares the same egmp dedicated ev platform featuring incredible 800 volt, ultra fast charging architecture, the first application of such advanced technology in mass market electric cars, which is also bi directional, to offer the innovative v2l functionalities. The high tech, 800 volt, hyundai and kia electric vehicles that have combined to win just about all automotive awards given out in the world are already plenty fast with the dual motor long range versions, exhibiting 0 to 60 miles per hour time of around 4.

5 seconds. Incredible for your average family crossovers, however, the high performance versions represented by kias gt and hyundais n monikers up the ante, with a 576 horsepower dual motor power electric system to render a supercar like performance of 3.5 seconds, zero to 60 miles per hour. Dont be fooled, though, because all those superficial specifications of the ionic 5n seem nearly identical to the kia ev6 gt, its not badge engineered its made known that the vehicle characteristics of the ionic, 5n and kia ev6 gt are nothing like each other, while the ev6 gt As the name suggests, will exhibit a plushier ride and composed handling characteristics appropriate for a grand tourer, ionic 5n will be a completely different beast, consistent with the philosophy of the n division, which has been created by bmw, m divisions, legendary albert biermann to more or less Replicate the spirit of bavarias finest ultimate driving machine, the n version of ionic 5 will be calibrated for shorter, runs to tackle tighter corners and sharp chicanes of race tracks. Thats right. What albert biermanns team is trying to do is turn an suv, the size of santa fe, weighing 4 700 pounds or over two tons into a hot hatch of the sort to complement its go fast, exterior design and consistent with the characteristics of the other ice based End cars such as i30 and i 20n well known for their tight body, control and extreme agility. To accomplish this, its revealed that the n engineers are concentrating on tuning the chassis and suspension for optimal rebound rates and recalibrating.

The electronic limited slip differential for more aggressive settings compared to the one found in the ev6 gt. The more aggressively tuned, ionic 5n will also feature contrasting design features inside and out to distinguish itself clearly from the run of the mill pedestrian versions by offering deeper air dams and aerodynamic claddings, as well as lower suspension. In contrast, the ev6 gt will offer a more subdued look that may be hard to differentiate from the lower gt line version. This is consistent with kias approach to stinger gt, with the gt version, sharing virtually the same exterior appearance and driving characteristics as the gt line, but offering higher performance for the pricier model. This is not surprising, since kia deems the ev6 to be a sedan and a spiritual successor to the stinger as the ice legend will fade away into history next year, only after one generation in production likely to also succeed sonata this time after eight generations of long Life when the perennial best selling family sedan is expected to be discontinued after this generation, the ionic 6 electric sedan, which has dimensions similar to sonata, will also be featuring an end version. However, unlike the sonata, which featured a watered down n line model that offered 290 horsepower from its 2.5 liter turbocharged engine borrowed from genesis, g80 luxury sedan, with a zero to 60 miles per hour time of 5.2 seconds. Ionic 6 is expected to offer full fledged and version apparent from the teaser image of the nda 2022.

The aggressive looking ionic 6n electric super sedan, which is also expected to be unveiled at the event, is likely to feature similar power and specifications as the ev6 gt and ionic 5 and crossover brethren. However, as an n car, ionic 6 is likely to be as aggressive as the ionic 5n in the way its tuned and when it becomes available within the next couple of years, it surely will pose a serious threat to porsche audi and teslas high end electric sedans. In particular, with the price that is expected to be a fraction of the competition, you can bet that ionic 6n will claim a huge chunk of the market share, especially taking into consideration the fact that it will be the fastest charging at 18 minutes. 10 to 80 percent and offer advanced features such as v2l and hyundais world renowned self driving technology, thats considered one of the best in the industry even exceeding that of teslas and thats. Not everything to target european consumers that typically shy away from sedans in general hyundai is cooking up something with a familiar recipe. As with the design for europe, genesis g70 shooting break, which featured a fantastic sleek hatchback body. Its reported that a more practical and sleeker version of the ionic 6 will become available primarily for the european market. In an interview with british magazine, auto express sang, yup lee, the chief designer of ionic 6 was asked whether a more versatile lift back derivative was ever considered as opposed to the traditional notchback sedan.

His answer was, i can make a great hatchback out of that. A shooting break, as if the plan to introduce ionic 6 shooting break was already a done deal as beautiful and practical as the ionic 6 shooting brakes, predecessor, g70 shooting break. The biggest shortcoming was identified as the vehicles gutless power plant options that only offered four cylinder diesel and gasoline engines ranging from 199 to 249 horsepower. It will be a completely different story that will unfold this time around as ionic 6 shooting brake will feature up to nearly 600 horsepower to go toe to toe with even porsches. Take in gts trim that features 590 horsepower with more versatility and practicality offered by the ionic 6n shooting brake with bigger real estate inside associated with a longer wheelbase and taller height, and the price thats expected to be nearly half of the taken sport turismo. The wagon version of taken sedan people will be hard pressed not to consider the korean phenom, even if the brand name may not have the cachet of the germans. However, this could be the opportunity for hyundais end to be spoken in the same light as the bmw m and amg, as the industry as a whole will be playing on an all new playing field, with the advent of the electric car era. Finally, and most importantly, even with all the performance and style, they fully fulfill their duty as economical electric vehicles, with the estimated range of the n vehicles expected to exceed 250 miles or 400 kilometers wltp when paired with a 77.

4 kilowatt hours battery, as is the case With the kia ev6 gt, also expected to be similar to the ev6 gt is the price in korea. It sells for 72 million korean one, which is roughly 60 000 u.s, and if they can maintain the similar pricing for the n electric cars, they could be the supercars for the masses which could be found in homes of just about every household in the western world.
