Hyundai has confirmed that the first examples of the performance-focused IONIQ 5 N will be landing in Australia in the first quarter of 2024, with prices kicking off from $111,000 before on-road costs.

Set to take on the likes of the Tesla Model Y, Kia EV6 and the MG MG4 X-POWER, Hyundai’s IONIQ 5 takes the standard platform and turns everything up to eleven.That means power increases up to 478kW/770Nm with the help of Hyundai’s N Grin Boost mode and regular outputs of 448kW/740Nm, offering a 0-100km/h sprint in a claimed 3.4 seconds.

Underneath, the E-GMP platform has picked up some added reinforcement, atop a new adaptive suspension setup, a sharpened steering ratio and a new electronic limited-slip differential and comes riding on 21-inch alloys wrapped in Pirelli P Zero 275/35 rubber.Back in September, Hyundai launched a 12-hour pre-sale event for eager buyers here in Australia looking to secure the first batch of the company’s pioneering hot battery-electric SUV.

Shortly before Hyundai opened up its pre-order books, the company enlisted the help of the undisputed Drift King, Keiichi Tsuchiya to tear its rear tyres to pieces at the Sydney World Time Attack Challenge and drum-up excitement for its imminent launch.You can see the result of that collaboration in the video below.
