IONIQ 5 N Named 2024 World Performance Car


Today, Hyundai Motor Company continued its winning streak at the World Car Awards with the IONIQ 5 N high-performance electric vehicle (EV) named the 2024 World Performance Car. This is the Hyundai IONIQ 5 lineup’s fourth major World Car Awards win in the last three years.

Today’s victory solidifies IONIQ 5 N’s position as a frontrunner in the market. With its outstanding high-performance technology, it continues to outpace EV rivals.

World Car Awards announced the winners of this year’s competition at a ceremony during the 2024 New York International Auto Show (NYIAS). Hyundai Motor’s many nominations reflect its growing global stature and build on its past success at the World Car Awards.

The brand’s IONIQ 5 and IONIQ 6 took back-to-back triple victories in 2022 and 2023 in the World Car, World Electric Vehicle and World Car Design categories.

Introduced in July 2023 as Hyundai N’s first EV, IONIQ 5 N represents a new segment of driver-focused high-performance EVs through new technologies and elevated racetrack capability. It signals the first step in N’s electrification strategy. It combines the standard IONIQ 5’s Electric Global Modular Platform (E-GMP) with N’s motorsport-bred technologies.

It leverages N’s expertise from electrified ‘Rolling Labs’ to maximize the EV’s high-performance capabilities. IONIQ 5 N has been widely praised in the media as ‘groundbreaking’, a ‘game-changer’, and the ‘benchmark’ for high-performance EVs.

IONIQ 5 N also won Top Gear’s 2023 Car of the Year Award and set the fastest electric SUV lap time at the Nürburgring Nordschleife by Germany’s ‘Sport Auto’.

World Car Awards is an annual event that sees 100 international jurors across 29 countries test-drive and vote on a field of eligible vehicles.
