The Ioniq 5 N will sell for P4,250,000 in 5 color options, Atlas White, Abyss Black Pearl, Cyber Gray Metallic, Performance Blue, and Performance Blue Matte. It will come with a 5-year or 200,000-km vehicle warranty, 8-year or 160,000-km high voltage battery warranty, and automobile track coverage.

Our Take

As for the Ioniq 5 N, we admit it’s quite pricey but remember that this model has recently reaped international awards and is a true-blue performance vehicle (pun intended) waiting to be unleashed on the track. The track coverage of the warranty is also a surprise, which means wealthy owners will have peace of mind pushing it to the limit in a circuit. Hopefully, us, too, when we get our hands on one.
