Hyundai has unveiled the IONIQ 5 N eN1 Cup Car at the official practice round for the upcoming Hyundai N Festival, heralding a pivotal shift in the automaker’s approach to electric vehicle (EV) racing. This development showcases Hyundai’s commitment to blending performance with sustainability, as the IONIQ 5 N eN1 Cup Car emerges as a symbol of advanced racing tech and environmental stewardship.

Based on the high-performance IONIQ 5 N, the Cup Car iteration brings with it a range of motorsport enhancements designed for the rigors of track competition — from slick tires and a body kit engineered for aerodynamic supremacy to measures aimed at reducing weight while bolstering safety.

The Cup Car embodies Hyundai’s technological prowess, with a power electronics system mirroring that of the production IONIQ 5 N and also stands as a symbol of the brand’s ambition in the high-performance EV arena. Notably, it features a power output of up to 650 PS or roughly 641 hp and an 84.0 kWh battery facilitating robust performance and durability.

Hyundai’s initiative to introduce the eN1 class at the N Festival provides an exciting platform for teams to explore and excel in next-generation EV motorsports. This move, coupled with the adoption of open tire regulations, signifies a broader commitment to innovation and inclusivity in the racing domain.

For those interested in catching a glimpse of the new performance EV in person, the Hyundai IONIQ 5 N eN1 Cup Car will make its official debut at the Hyundai N Festival motorsports event at South Korea’s Inje Speedium on April 27.⁠
