Hyundai has pulled the covers off the jaw-dropping 'IONIQ 5 N NPX1' concept at the Tokyo Auto Salon 2024, showcasing the cutting-edge prototype N Performance Parts.
Hyundai is on a mission to elevate the high-performance electric vehicle (EV) ownership experience, and the introduction of N Performance Parts, which originated in 2019, is a testament to this commitment. Unleashing high-quality tuning parts for enthusiasts has been Hyundai N's forte, extending its expertise from internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles like the Elantra N, i30 N, and i20 N to all-electric N models, including the much-anticipated IONIQ 5 N.
The 'NPX1' concept serves as a tantalizing preview of the N-specific enhancements soon to be available through a dedicated catalogue of N Performance Parts.

Stepping inside the concept model reveals an interior elevated by Alcantara material and racing bucket seats, promising an immersive driving experience.
The excitement doesn't stop there – the prototype N Performance Parts showcased on the NPX1 concept are slated for further development, with plans for production and sales in 2024. Hyundai N's ambitious vision extends beyond the IONIQ 5 N, as it gears up to broaden the availability of N Performance Parts across its entire N model lineup.
