Hyundai’s Ioniq 5 N is a fresh new approach to electric performance vehicles. The car is packed with customizable features so the driver can configure the vehicle to their exact preferences. We’ll deep dive into ten of these features, summarized below:
1. N Pedal – Developed as a solution to overcome the inherent weight and size of EVs, N Pedal was designed for instant turn-in behavior and enhanced throttle sensitivity, increasing the regenerative force to create a dynamic weight transfer that helps to sharpen corner entry.
2. N Torque Distribution – adjusts the front and rear drive ratio, providing fully variable torque distribution that can be adjusted for eleven levels.
3. N Drift Optimizer (w/ Torque Kick Drift) – helps to maintain the drift angle by balancing multiple vehicle controls. The integrated Torque Kick Drift function allows the driver to simulate the clutch kick action of rear-wheel-drive ICE vehicles for driving scenarios that require more immediate drift initiation.
4. N Grin Boost (NGB) – delivers an instant thrust from IONIQ 5 N’s dual motors by increasing the power output and torque for ten seconds
5. N Launch Control – provides maximum traction for the fastest possible start, allowing the driver to launch their vehicle like a professional race car
6. N Race – utilizes a motorsport-derived philosophy that optimizes resources for the best track experience.
7. N Battery Preconditioning – optimizes the temperature of the battery cells to be as efficient as possible.
8. N e-Shift simulates the behavior of the eight-speed dual-clutch N DCT of ICE N models by controlling the motor’s torque output and power and simulating the jolt feeling between shifts. It provides the push feel of a DCT transmission and various levels of simulated engine braking using regeneration. The purpose is to increase driving fun, provide a more interactive driving experience, and deliver the same emotions of an ICE on a racetrack or a windy road.
9. N Active Sound+ – produces three sounds – ‘Ignition’, an ICE N engine and exhaust sound, and two futuristic EV sounds, including ‘Supersonic’, inspired by fighter jets – through eight internal speakers and two external speakers. Drivers can even rev the “engine” when N e-Shift is activated and transmission is in park or neutral.
10. N Road Sense – automatically recommends that the driver activate N Mode when double-curved road signs are detected. This lets the driver enjoy even more driving fun.

Honorable mention: e-LSD – The electronic Limited Slip Differential (e-LSD) controls the amount of torque sent to the rear wheels, enhances handling performance when turning at high speeds, and improves wheel-slip compensation. This is a real, mechanical differential with e-hydraulic locking action for the rear motor!
