Let’s start with the more traditional performance elements of the Ioniq 5 N. A …

Very smart move to have separate radiators for the battery and motor, those two sharing heat is a problem on many EVs, especially Teslas. Having the coolant routing for separate radiators will give it lots of potential with aftermarket upgrades too.

Seems like it could be a Golf R competitor right out of the box.

I would highly consider this and I'm not a fan of EVs whatsoever. I just enjoyed my Kona N so much and love the ergnomics of the Ioniq 5 interior. Add in the massive HP numbers and I'm very intrigued.

I want one, but me thinks it will be a bit more than the $35K of the ElantraN.

It's not a perfect comparison, but the hottest version of the Kia EV6, the GT, stickers at $61,600.

Based on size, weight, (assumed) price and power I'd say that's it's closer to a Jeep Trackhawk than a Golf.

I was standing next to one of these this morning.  I like the form factor.

If they made a hybrid or ICE version I would be considering it.  Especially if the price dropped accordingly.
