Hyundai CEO Reveals IONIQ 6 Sport 2022

Hyundai has unveiled the fully electric Hyundai IONIQ 6 Sport 2022, and it looks like it’ll take the EV market by storm. 

It’s marketed as a luxury sedan to compete for heat with the Tesla Model S, and it seems to be doing so after selling out in just 24 hours. 

They’re taking it to the next level with a performance version of the IONIQ 6 Sport 2022 EV. This new model will be called the Hyundai Ionic Six N and is built to rival the Model S plan.

Today as we reveal everything we know about this IONIQ 6 Sport 2022 Sporty Big Brother and what Hyundai has said about it.

Before we get into the details, we must first know the history of the N division. Hyundai launched its high-performance N brand in 2012. 

It all began when Hyundai, NUM, Young, and R and D Center assembled a completely new group of researchers to work on the development of high-performance cars. 

They assembled a group of enthusiastic developers and automotive enthusiasts, and they started building N vehicles to fulfill their vision of a brand-new type of high-performance vehicle.

Albert Brahman, who oversaw the creation of BMW’s high-performance vehicles, was hired as the company’s executive vice president and head of vehicle testing at High-Performance Development in December of that year. 

In November 2015, Klaus Kusta, a former employee of Mercedes AMG, was appointed director of the High-Performance Vehicle Development Section of the Hyundai Motor European Technical Center, or HMETC. 

Then Thomas Shemara joined the group in March 2018. Similar to Bioman, Shemara started his career at BMW as an engineer, developing expertise in product planning, sales, and marketing.

High-performance automobile development started to pick up steam quite quickly, so Hyundai established a test track at the Numyang, R and D Center in 2015 specifically for testing N vehicles. 

The management is highly experienced, and they are now focusing on delivering one of the most exciting releases yet the Hyundai IONIQ 6 Sport 2022 N.

Following the announcement of the Ionic Five N to be released in 2023, the IONIQ 6 Sport 2022 N will shortly follow. 

This upcoming EV will most likely be based on the RN 22 E concept

The Hyundai RN 22 E was created by engineers at Hyundai’s End division to test hardware and software used in Hyundai’s first high-performance electric vehicle, the upcoming IONIQ 6 Sport 2022, as well as on the racetrack in 2023. 

Hyundai claims that the RN 22 E is essential to developing existing and future end-performance vehicles such as the Ionic Five N, which will debut internationally next year.

HYUNDAI N Vice President Till Whartonberg has said these rolling lab projects are great assets to prepare the end’s electrification vision turning into reality the Ionic Five N next year. 

HYUNDAI claims that the streamliner body of the IONIQ 6 Sport 2022 was chosen for this mobile rolling lab research due to its aerodynamic features. 

However, HYUNDAI added a large racing-inspired rear wing and increased the front bumper’s aerodynamic volume rolling labs to represent the continuous development of our most advanced technologies.


Hyundai claims that the RN 22 E provides racetrack-ready performance by improving and optimizing Hyundai’s market-leading electrified global modular platform EGMP and packaging it onto an IONIQ 6 Sport 2022-based streamliner design. 

The Hyundai RM 22 E shares its mechanical components with its Kia EV Six GT road vehicle EGMP sibling, producing 430 outputs from front-drive 160 kilowatt and rear-drive 270 kilowatt motors, respectively. 

The RN 22 E concept is longer, wider, and sits noticeably lower on the road on sports suspension compared to the road-going Ionic Six, which made its debut recently.

The RN 22 E has a modified version of Hyundai N’s electronic limited slip differential that has been improved to account for the EV’s higher curb weight and twin-clutch torque vectoring setup to distribute torque across the rear axle. The spec sheet certainly looks promising. 

Features Performance 

A 77.4-kilowatt-hour battery, the same size that’s used in long-distance EGMP road cars, powers the RN 22 E’s 430 kilowatts, 740 Newton meter dual motors. 

The two motor output is asymmetrical, with the front motor contributing 160 rear unit 270 to achieve a higher top speed. 

Hyundai claims that the motors spin at more than 20,000 rpm, up from 15,000 rpm before track driving. 

A battery condition system boosts the temperature to the ideal level to maximize performance, then lowers it to permit quick charging.

Using an 800 V design from the EGMP, the electric motor and battery both have independent cooling systems fed by the larger intake at the front of the car, which helps to increase the thermal management efficiency of the battery.

Future EVs and vehicles will be more durable on the racetrack thanks to additional work on cooling and braking. 

The weight of the batteries is better managed, taking into consideration the upgraded 400-millimeter hybrid discs and four-piston monoblock calipers. 

That offsets the heavy battery and brings the overall weight of the car down to improved speed and handling. 

According to Hyundai, additional work is required to fully integrate the new braking system into the EV’s energy regeneration system. 

Using knowledge from Hyundai’s World Rally Cars power distribution technology already used in EGMP, Hyundai has improved to allow quicker changeover between all-wheel drive and rear-wheel drive.


Additionally, the rear motor has a torque vectoring system that uses clutches to simultaneously alter how much power is sent to the left and right rear wheels. 

Till Wartenberg, the CEO of End Division, claims that high performance emotionalizes both people and cars at the same time. 

He acknowledges that making an electric vehicle as emotional as an ice high-performance vehicle is difficult.

For this reason, the IONIQ 6 Sport 2022 N offers an engine noise simulation mode and a simulated gear shift mode that can be played through both internal and external speakers. 

The faux gear shifts are operated by paddles, just like in a typical Ice car with a dual-clutch transmission. reports that the engine noise from the driver’s seat is quite genuine, rising and falling with the speed of the car.

They said the simulated gear shift mode doesn’t make you go faster. It’s slower on the track, not least because the power and torque outputs from EMotors are cut to give the sensation that you’re shifting gears. 

It feels reasonably realistic, and you must pay attention to shift points to be as quick as possible, just as you do in a real DCT car. 

Fake engine noise and fake gear shifts are gimmicks. However, they are no more of a gimmick than installing a clutch pedal and a seven-speed manual transmission in a Porsche 911 when the PDK dual-clutch transmission is the superior choice for overall performance.

The point is that artificial noise and shifts are intended to give you that same excitement from a bellowing engine. 

They undoubtedly boost driver engagement for those who want to hear the roar of a powerful high-torque EV, but it is still yet to be decided if it’s something people want. 

Additionally, Hyundai claims that a Ne shift component of N Sound Plus may replace a petrol car’s transmission by simulating the vibration and feel of a gear shift. 

The Division has been responsible for designing some of the most striking concepts we’ve seen to date, most notably the Envision 74. 

Hyundai claims the Envision 74 will sprint to 60 mph in under 4 seconds en route to a top speed of more than 155. 

The production version of the Envision 74 is feasible, according to the dedicated and enthused team at Hyundai’s End Division.

Till Wartenberg, the head of Hyundai’s End Division, responded directly why not? When asked if Hyundai would build an Envision 74 for a 30-something tech billionaire with unlimited funds. 

But Wartenberg added, I wouldn’t do it for that one person because we have to stay true to our end brand, and that means building an everyday sports car that’s accessible and affordable.

 We want to put a high performance on the road and make it very close to our enthusiasts. What do you think about the Hyundai Ionic 6th sport? Let us know in the comments section.
