Hyundai Motor Company Releases N Brand Rolling Lab Development Video with Sneak Peek of IONIQ 5 N


Hyundai Motor Company today released a video about its high-performance N Brand and the RN22e and N Vision 74 rolling labs that are facilitating its electrified future. The video also features a glimpse of IONIQ 5 N, making its first official appearance, wrapped in a unique camouflage pattern of pixels and checkered flags. 

The video provides an inside look at the development process of N Brand’s rolling labs, which are fully functional vehicles used for research, development and verification of high-performance technologies pioneered by Hyundai Motorsports before application to mass-production models.

Following N Brand’s RM (Racing Midship) series of internal combustion engine rolling labs, the brand introduced a new rolling lab series this past summer to develop next-generation electrified vehicles.

This video vividly reveals the development process of the two rolling labs (RN22e and N Vision 74) that facilitate the future of N Brand’s high-performance cars.

The RN22e rolling lab is the N Brand’s first high-performance vehicle based on Hyundai Motor’s E-GMP (Electric-Global Modular Platform), which is the basis of Hyundai’s IONIQ 5 and IONIQ 6.

The video shows how RN22e combines E-GMP and other advanced technologies to achieve N Brand’s performance pillars of Corner Rascal, Racetrack Capability and Everyday Sports Car. Through RN22e, innovative technologies are tested and verified for near-term implementation on N Brand’s first battery electric model.

N Vision 74 is a hydrogen hybrid rolling lab that shows N Brand’s mid-to-long-term vision for high-performance vehicles. N Vision 74’s 500kW hydrogen fuel cell powertrain, which boasts a fast-refuelling time of 5 minutes, originated on N Brand’s first concept vehicle, N 2025 Vision Gran Turismo, unveiled at the brand’s launch in 2015 and has benefitted from another seven years of development.

In addition, N Vision 74’s design inherits the spirit of Hyundai’s Pony Coupe concept unveiled in 1974, clearly connecting Hyundai Motor’s heritage with N Brand’s future.

The video includes a cameo appearance by IONIQ 5 N wrapped in an N-specific camouflage membrane with a pattern of pixels and checkered flags, representing driving fun in the electrified era. In its first-ever appearance, IONIQ 5 N is seen running alongside RN22e and N Vision 74 for about three seconds.

Hyundai N Brand is one of the fastest evolving high-performance brands in the world. All of our plans are on the right track to be carried out in line with our vision for electrification,” said Till Wartenberg, Vice President of N Brand Management & Motorsport sub-division at Hyundai Motor Company. “The success story of rolling labs highlighted by RN22e is a perfect prelude to our N Brand’s very first battery electric production model, the IONIQ 5 N, coming soon.”
