The Hyundai RN22e is one of two “rolling lab” test bed prototypes being developed by Hyundai N division to show that electric cars can be fun. The other car is the N Vision 74, a very striking hydrogen-electric hybrid supercar coupe. The RN22e previews the future Ioniq 6 N sports sedan, expected in 2024, which will go after the Tesla Model 3 Performance with 430kW of power, dual motor AWD and a twin-clutch rear axle.

As always, we don’t accept advertising from car manufacturers, and we’re powered by Budget Direct – so this is an independent, honest review of the Hyundai RN22e.

  1. Don’t know what is worse about EV cars, no sound or fake sound. Both are sad state of affairs for driving enthusiasts who enjoy real visceral sounds.

  2. 2:24
    4000 extra rpm than it's sibling EV6 GT(21000rpm)!!!
    theoretically, It can go upto 310kph(192mph) if it uses the identical gear ratio

  3. this seems to be the future of EV sounds. A future that petrolheads could live with too, thanks to the optional shifting options

  4. So it's got no sound deadening, hence you can hear the electric motor whine and also makes the car lighter which in turn makes it accelerate faster 🤷‍♂️

  5. Reminiscent of the Audi TT just at a glance.
    It's a shame we'll see so many comments from those that can't separate their politics and preferences from the realities the future is bringing.
