  • The 2025 Hyundai Ioniq 5 N will arrive this month with a starting price of $67,475.

  • The 641-hp all-wheel-drive Ioniq 5 N has exclusive content such as a drift mode, an overboost function, and an "e-Shift" feature that simulates gearchanges.

  • The Ioniq 5 N's price is between its high-performance corporate cousins, the 576-hp Kia EV6 GT ($63K) and the 483-hp Genesis GV60 Performance ($71K).

The 2025 Hyundai Ioniq 5 N represents many things. Not only is it one helluva good time—as we discovered firsthand during a drive event on the abbreviated Korea International Circuit—but the 641-hp all-wheel-drive machine is also the first electric Hyundai model to get the brand's high-performance N treatment. With a $67,475 starting price, the '25 Ioniq 5 N also becomes the most expensive Hyundai money can buy.

The price means the N model costs about $24K more than the Ioniq 5's base rear-wheel-drive configuration, and it's about $9K more than the top-spec Limited with the available 320-hp all-wheel-drive setup. Compared with the latter model, the Ioniq 5 N might sound like a great value to anyone who wants an EV that's designed to be a track star.

Unlike lesser versions, the N-rated Ioniq 5 features a host of exclusive content, specifically an electric powertrain that generates up to 641 horsepower with the overboost function (called N Grin Boost) activated. It also has a bigger 84.0-kWh battery pack, upgraded Brembo brakes, and wider rubber in the form of Pirelli P Zero three-season tires. It sits 0.79 inch closer to the ground and takes up more space on the road because its 2.0 inches wider and 3.2 inches longer than other Ioniq 5s.

The N model's other cool features include a drift mode that induces oversteer and a Torque Drift Kick system that's designed to simulate a clutch dump. The N e-Shift function replicates the feeling of an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission, while the N Active Sound+ exists to do what you'd think: make fake gas-engine noises.

The Ioniq 5 N isn't the only high-performance EV sold by the Hyundai Motor Group, which is the parent company of Kia and Genesis. The former brand is responsible for the 576-hp Kia EV6 GT, which starts at $62,975. Genesis caters to luxury buyers, which explains why the 483-hp GV60 Performance isn't as powerful as its corporate cousins, but it's the most expensive at $70,900. That puts the high-powered Hyundai smack dab in the middle when it goes on sale in the U.S. later this month.
