The RN22e is fully-electric while the N Vision 74 is a hydrogen fuel cell hybrid concept
Hyundai Motor has given a glimpse into their high-performance future with the N division unveiling two new concepts - the RN22e and the N Vision 74.
The RN22e is based on the IONIQ 6’s streamliner design. It gets electric motors at the front and the rear-end producing a combined 576PS and 740Nm and a battery with a capacity of 77.4kWh and 400-V/800-V fast multi-charging capabilities. It takes under 18 minutes to charge the whole thing and top speed for the car is over 250kmph. It comes equipped with an all-wheel drive system and provides optimized torque distribution according to different drive modes that allows drivers to choose the torque power on the front and rear wheels.
Having four piston monoblock calipers and a 400-mm hybrid disc allows RN22e to withstand the weight of its power electric (PE) system. In addition, Hyundai N will use RN22e to study how to deliver dynamic movement with regen-braking that precisely controls yaw and corner attack.
The N Vision 74 is a high-performance hydrogen fuel cell hybrid concept and pays homage to the Hyundai Pony Coupe concept from 1974, which was developed by the legendary car designer Giorgetto Giugiaro. The electric motor at the rear produces over 670PS and 900Nm. It gets a battery capacity of 62.4kWh with 800-V fast-charging capabilities and a hydrogen fuel tank capacity of 4.2kg and refuelling time of 5 minutes.
By having fuel cell system and battery-electric powering the N Vision 74 together, the cooling efficiency is improved, while the two different power sources can be used depending on different driving conditions. This fine-tuned logic system enables better torque vectoring by twin motors on the rear, allowing a precise and responsive cornering experience.
