Hyundai has released images of its high-performance electric concept, the RN22e.
Hyundai refers to it as a “rolling lab,” where it tests and validates the company’s advanced technologies before incorporating them into future N performance production models.
The RN22e is based on the IONIQ 6 and is built on Hyundai’s innovative Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP). The RN22e concept is race-oriented and provides track-ready performance. It has excellent cornering ability, which is aided by torque vectoring via twin clutch. The AWD-equipped RN22e provides optimized torque distribution across all drive modes. 3D printed components help to reduce overall weight while also improving rigidity to improve cornering.
The N Sound+ system in the RN22e generates sound from the interior and exterior speakers for a dynamic driving experience. N e-shift also provides vibration and a shifting feel. With four piston monoblock calipers and a 400-mm hybrid disc, breaking is exceptional.
RN22e is powered by two electric motors with a combined output of 430 kW and 740 Nm of peak torque fed by a 77.4 kWh fast charging battery pack. Hyundai’s e-concept has a claimed top speed of over 250 Kmph.
