Watch The Hyundai N Vision 74 And RN22e Go For A Play Date On The Track
Shortly after Hyundai set the automotive world abuzz with the launch of the RN22e and N Vision 74 concept cars, it has released a clip that shows them being put through their paces on a track.
Both cars form part of what Hyundai calls its rolling lab technological experimentation collection and while they may not reach the production line, their designs and technologies could influence future Hyundai N models.
Starting with the N Vision 74, it pays homage to the 1974 Hyundai Pony Coupe designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro. The design is absolutely spectacular and is paired with an intriguing powertrain.
Hyundai has revealed that the N Vision 74 sports a 62.4 kWh battery capable of 800-volt fast-charging, a hydrogen fuel tank, and electric motors that deliver 670 hp and 664 lb-ft (900 Nm) of torque. The technological showcase is also quite efficient as it has a claimed range of 373 miles (600 km).
The Hyundai RN22e is a little different. Whereas the N Vision 74 is completely bespoke, the RN22e is based on the carmaker’s Electric-Global Module Platform (E-GMP) and is packaged in the body of the Ioniq 6. A plethora of visual and aerodynamic upgrades have been made, including the fitment of a striking front splitter, extended side skirts, slimline wing mirrors, unique wheels, and a menacing rear end with a fixed rear wing and a diffuser.
In terms of power, the RN22e sports a pair of electric motors that combine to deliver 576 hp and 545 lb-ft (740 Nm) of torque. These motors receive their juice from a 77.4 kWh battery pack and just like the Ioniq 5 and Ioniq 6, it can charge from 10 to 80 per cent in less than 18 minutes.
Watching both of these distinctive concept cars on the track is quite a sight to see and shows that when it comes to performance, Hyundai is taking the electrified era very seriously.
