Hyundai N Vision 74: From Concept to Reality
Not long ago, Hyundai revealed the Hyundai N Vision 74, a concept car inspired by the iconic 1974 Pony Coupe. The N Vision 74 is a wild concept, resembling something you’d find in a racing game rather than on regular roads.
Recently, news surfaced that Hyundai is gearing up to put this machine into production. According to a report from Korea’s ETNews, Hyundai intends to race a version of the N Vision and homologate a production run.
EV Motorsports Potential
Even Hyundai acknowledges the concept’s potential in motorsports. Our own research at Frankston Hyundai finds that even Hyundai says the concept provides a “Future Opportunity in Motorsports,” and that “N Vision 74 is capable of driving over 600km and if can be refueled up to 80% SOF in just 5 minutes,” it says on its official Hyundai N website. “Fast refueling characteristic also opens up opportunities for the next generation of motorsports. The courage to pursue this mission and the ability to embrace imagination will open a new chapter of driving fun.”
The ETNews report indicates that Hyundai plans to produce a total of 100 units, with 30 reserved for the racing track. This leaves the possibility of 70 units reaching customers worldwide, though it remains uncertain if right-hand drive versions will be included, possibly heading down under.
More Electric Hyundai N Models
One could only image that production versions might be rather exclusive and a bit pricey compared to the amazing N lineup we offer here at our dealership in Melbourne’s beautiful Bayside suburbs.
If the rumour from the Korean news outlet proves correct, the production run is expected to commence in the first half of 2026. The concept N Vision 74 employed a unique logic with e-TVTM (electronic Torque Vectoring by Twin Motors), enhancing the cornering experience with 235kW motors on each rear wheel.
While specifics about the car’s internals remain unknown, the report suggests a power output of up to 600kW from its hydrogen fuel-cell electric system is possible. This marks an increase in power over even the concept car.
Despite its wild nature, Hyundai has a track record of releasing highly sought-after performance models, like the latest Ioniq 5 N, proving to be one of the most enjoyable EV hot hatches currently available. (Contact us if you’d like to learn or drive one of the EVs available at Frankston Hyundai).
Hyundai is also gearing up to race the Ioniq 5 N in a one-make championship in South Korea next year, known as the Ioniq 5 N eN1 Cup. The concept for the racecar for this series is set to be revealed in February next year. It seems Hyundai is indeed hotting up to begin racing with EVs.
