Hyundai’s new NPX1 concept Marks the Introduction of N Performance Parts to the IONIQ 5 N.
Hyundai’s inaugural electric N car has been given extra performance and a tweak to styling with the IONIQ 5 N NPX1, a concept model with prototype N Performance Parts for the Tokyo Auto Salon 2024.
While not yet officially available, Frankston Hyundai will keep you updated on availability and timing for an official release. To have a look at the current Hyundai N lineup, drop by our Hyundai dealership on Melbourne’s Bayside, located conveniently in Seaford – or contact us to organise a test drive.
Hitting the stage in Japan, the NPX1 is the first time Hyundai has added N Performance Parts to the award-winning Ioniq 5 N. N Performance Parts is a new line of accessories and parts officially developed and supplied by Hyundai for various models, including the i30 N and i20 N. However, this is the first time N Performance parts have been made specifically for an electric car.
“In 2024, Hyundai Motor Company will take a step forward as a leader in new tuning parts suitable for the high-performance EV era as demonstrated with the ‘NPX1’ concept model,” said Joon Park, Vice President of N Brand Management Group.
Some of the parts on display will be available soon, including a carbonfibre front splitter, side skirts, rear diffuser, rear wing spoiler, lightweight hybrid carbon wheels, high-performance brake pads, and lowered springs.
Not only reserved for the outside, the new N Performance parts catalogue offers something for the inside, too. The cabin of the NPX1 features racing-inspired Alcantara and bucket seats, contributing to the performance-oriented feel.
Hyundai has also confirmed it is further developing some of the simulated sounds and other software tweaks as part of its N catalogue.
“Not limited to tuning parts, we are also developing software customisation such as sound and vehicle calibration by OTA updates which will open a completely new category of EV customisation for an exciting future ahead for the tuning community,” added Joon Park.
