As Hyundai prepares to launch its first full electric high-performance car next year, the IONIQ N, it now premieres two new RN22E and N Vision 74 concepts under its high-performance N sub-brand. The “rolling labs” cars demonstrate the automaker’s commitment to zero-emission technologies and embody Hyundai N’s high-performance vision of electrification. Hyundai N was launched just seven years ago rooted in motorsports, and launched its very first production road car, the Hyundai i30 N, in 2017.

“RN22e and N Vision 74 play an important role in the strategic development of our entire product lineup, especially our electrified, high-performance vehicles,” Thomas Schemera, Executive Vice President and Head of Customer Experience Division at Hyundai Motor Company writes in a press release. “Rolling labs represent the continuous development of our most advanced technologies. This unique approach makes us ready for the challenges of the future by empowering us to push ourselves to the limit.”

The retrofuturistic-looking N Vision 74 is a hydrogen fuel cell hybrid that pays homage to the Hyundai Pony Coupe concept from 1974 designed by the legendary Giorgetto Guigiaro. Defining features that have been brought over are the pure surface, dynamic proportioned profile and unique B pillars. Additional elements include Parametric Pixel lighting and a driver-centric cockpit that blends heritage and modern design.

The curvier RN22e rolling lab concept optimizes Hyundai’s signature  Electric Global Modular Platform (E-GMP) which is housed in a streamlined exterior based on its recently revealed IONIQ 6 EV.

“RN22e is tested to maximize N’s three performance pillars, starting with corner rascal,” Hyundai writes in a press release. “RN22e elevates the corner carving feel with inevitably heavier weight, by exploring torque vectoring by twin clutch. Moreover, the 3D printed parts reduce weight and keep the rigidity for better corner attack.”

As the concepts continue to be tested by Hyundai’s engineers, the RN22e and N Vision have yet to be confirmed for commercial production. Take a look at the race footage above, and stay tuned for more details.
