Hyundai announced the 600-horsepower Ioniq 5 N back in July of last year, but now we have a price for the performance: $66,100.

For reference, that’s $8700 more than a top-trim, dual-motor, 320-horsepower Ioniq 5, and is also $4500 more than the 576-horsepower Kia EV6 GT–which features similar underpinnings to the Ioniq 5.

Hyundai also notes that you can expect to see the Ioniq 5 N at dealerships this month.

So, is all that extra EV oomph worth the extra cash? If not, what new go-fast option–EV or not–would you rather spend that $66K on?

I'll also point out that for only $33,300 more, you can upgrade to a base model Porsche Taycan–but you'll have to settle for only 402 horsepower.

At 60 months, that's only $1,304/mo with excellent credit. mortgage.

Tesla Model S is comparable. The base model has a bit faster zero-to-60 time (3.1 to 3.25), but sells for $74,990.

I can't find anything that compares with that zero to 60 at that price point.

We can do the whole EV vs. ICE thing, but I'm comparing apples to apples here.

I really want to love it.  It's so close.  But I think I'll hold out for a GTI-type (and sized) car.  Whether its made by VW, Hyundai, or someone else.

Maybe a Mustang Dark Horse? That's a similar amount of money and performance, but a very different type of car and nearly a second slower to 60 with the stick.

An M3 starts at about $78k, and again is slower.

This might be a tough car to beat for the money, even if it's still too expensive.

And as well as being expensive it's fat.

I bet these are going to break some records. Looks like they spent significant engineering time to make these fun to drive, from my experience with the Elantra N, I anticipate they'll be just that plus some surprises.

It's certainly supercar quick in a sprint.  I have no idea how it handles.  But yeah, at $66K, it's hard to beat in that limited metric of 0-60 if that's your thing.  

Hyundai/KIA have come a long way in recent years regarding performance and luxury vehicles.

That's where I'm at, too.  Honestly, when I'm online I feel like the only person on Earth that would struggle to notice an appreciable difference between a 0-60 sprint in 3.1 seconds vs 3.25 seconds or whatever.

A GTi sized vehicle that gives a bit of performance, maybe just around 4-5 seconds to 60, and can turn, stop, provide decent range, and cost accordingly would be enough for me.

For those reasons, I'm waiting to the release of the road going version of the VW ID.GTI concept or whatever it's called.

We'll see.  In the meantime and back on topic, good on Hyundai for bringing another N product to the market.

I dig it. Think it looks awesome as well. Unfortunately, $70k for a vehicle that with insurance would be hundreds more than my mortage won't be happening. 

But I'm glad they're building it and I hope it's successful.
