Hyundai Motor’s high-performance N sub-brand has revealed two high-performance concepts — RN22e and N Vision 74. Hyundai Motor’s ‘rolling labs’ are where it tests and verifies the company’s advanced technologies to apply them to future production models.

RN22e uses Hyundai’s innovative Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP) with IONIQ 6’s body design. It will continue to develop with motorsports expertise, so Hyundai can hone and perfect its advanced technologies to launch a mass-production electric N model utilizing the potential of E-GMP.

N Vision 74 is a high-performance hydrogen fuel cell hybrid model inspired by both Hyundai N 2025 Vision Gran Turismo and Hyundai Pony Coupe concept from 1974.

Hyundai’s engineers developed a hybrid structure of a battery-electric in combination with an FCEV system, which is placed in an all-new layout.

By having fuel cell system and battery-electric powering the N Vision 74 together, the cooling efficiency is improved, while the two different power sources can be used depending on different driving conditions. 

Both concepts will continue to be tested and verified by Hyundai’s engineers, so future N road cars can be equipped with their advanced technologies.

Thomas Schemera, Executive Vice President and Head of Customer Experience Division at Hyundai Motor Company, says: “RN22e and N Vision 74 play an important role in the strategic development of our entire product lineup, especially our electrified, high-performance vehicles,. 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.”

“In just seven years, Hyundai N has become the fastest evolving performance brand,” adds Till Wartenberg, Vice President of N Brand Management & Motorsport Sub-Division at Hyundai Motor Company. “N is moving forward to set new standards in sustainable high performance. We enthusiastically start this new chapter of electrified high-performance and will pursue this goal by using our creativity, engineering expertise and competitive spirit.”
