2023 Hyundai Ioniq 5 N: Everything We Know About The Hot Sci-Fi Electric Hatch Coming This Year

Performance variants of electric cars are fast becoming fashionable for automakers, with Hyundai poised to capitalize on the hype of the Ioniq 5 with an N performance version.

The Hurricane-engined Grand Wagoneer can also return 20 mpg on the highway, as well as 14 in the city and 17 combined.
