Hyundai Ioniq 6 N: Electric performance concept leaks

Hyundai’s newest electric performance car has surfaced online, with a wide body and a special badge.

The Hyundai Ioniq 6 N concept has leaked ahead of its rumoured reveal on Friday.

Images published on Instagram by Shorts Car appear to show Hyundai presenting off the Ioniq 6 N concept to an unnamed event, ahead of ‘N Day’ on 15 July.

The vehicle has received a number of styling changes, including an aggressive front spoiler with ‘N’ painted on the grille, a bonnet vent, wider body, eyelids on the headlights, and a large rear spoiler.

No technical details were revealed with the leaked photo – and Hyundai has been tight-lipped on specifications thus far. However, the post did include the hashtag ‘#rm22e’, which appears to correspond with a badge at the front of the car.

The use of the RM22e badge suggests the Ioniq 6 N concept is being used as a ‘rolling lab’ for development of future electric performance cars.

Curiously, it appears as if Hyundai could be showing off the Ioniq 6 N before the Ioniq 5 N, which is believed to be edging closer to production as the company’s first electric N car. Exact launch dates for these cars are also unclear.

Stay tuned to Drive for coverage of Hyundai’s N Day this Friday 15 July 2022.
